Idaho Independent Bank Announces 2015 Second Quarter and Year-to-Date Results

COEUR D’ALENE, Idaho, July 14, 2015 (GLOBE NEWSWIRE) -- Jack W. Gustavel, Chairman and Chief Executive Officer of Idaho Independent Bank (“IIB” or the “Bank”) (OTC BB:IIBK), announced IIB’s consolidated unaudited financial results for the second quarter and six months ended June 30, 2015.

“IIB's growth and improved efficiency during the past twelve months are having a positive impact on the Bank's core profitability,” Mr. Gustavel said. Net income for the second quarter of 2015 was $1,244,000, or $0.15 per diluted share, compared to $307,000, or $0.04 per diluted share, for the same period a year ago. Net income for the six months ended June 30, 2015, was $1,602,000, or $0.19 per diluted share, compared to $765,000, or $0.09 per diluted share, for the first six months of 2014. Revenue for the first six months of 2015 included $833,000 of non-recurring interest collected on a problem loan, while non-recurring income during the first six months of 2014 totaled $858,000. Income tax expenses for each year were offset by reductions in the Bank’s valuation allowance against net deferred tax assets (“Tax Valuation Allowance”). As of June 30, 2015, IIB was carrying a Tax Valuation Allowance of about $3.6 million that may be used to reduce future income tax expense.

At June 30, 2015, the Bank's total assets were $555.4 million, an increase of $68.8 million, or 14.1%, compared to June 30, 2014. Deposits and repurchase agreements increased $67.7 million, or 16.4%, to $480.8 million; while total loans, including loans held-for-sale, increased $28.1 million, or 11.2%, to $278.2 million over the same timeframe. The Bank experienced $14,000 in net charge-offs year-to-date, and at June 30, 2015, the allowance for loan and lease losses totaled $6.4 million, or 2.4% of total loans, excluding loans held-for-sale. Nonperforming assets were less than 0.4% of total assets at June 30, 2015.

As of June 30, 2015, the Bank’s Stockholders' Equity to Average Total Assets Ratio was 11.1%, and IIB estimates its capital ratios exceeded the regulatory thresholds required to be considered “Well-Capitalized” by a significant margin. As of June 30, 2015, the Bank had purchased 21,082 shares of its common stock under its previously announced $2 million stock buyback plan.

IIB will file its Consolidated Report of Condition and Income for the quarter ended June 30, 2015, ("Call Report") with the Federal Deposit Insurance Corporation by July 30, 2015. It will be available on the Federal Financial Institutions Examinations Council website at
