Idaho Independent Bank Announces 2016 First Quarter Results

COEUR D’ALENE, Idaho, April 12, 2016 (GLOBE NEWSWIRE) -- Jack W. Gustavel, Chairman and Chief Executive Officer of Idaho Independent Bank (“IIB” or the “Bank”) (OTCBB:IIBK), announced IIB’s unaudited, consolidated financial results for the first quarter ended March 31, 2016.

“Loan and deposit growth combined with an increase in the net interest margin contributed to IIB's improved earnings for the first quarter of 2016 when compared to the same period in 2015,” Mr. Gustavel said. Net income for the quarter was $772,000, or $0.09 per diluted share, compared to $358,000, or $0.04 per diluted share, for the first quarter a year ago. Income tax expense for each period included reversals of the Bank’s deferred tax valuation allowance (“tax valuation allowance”) sufficient to offset much or all of the income tax expense. As of March 31, 2016, IIB was still carrying a tax valuation allowance of approximately $900,000 that may be used to reduce future tax expense.

At March 31, 2016, the Bank's total assets were $563.3 million, an increase of $29.8 million, or 5.6%, when compared to March 31, 2015. Deposits and repurchase agreements increased $33.5 million, or 7.4%, to $485.8 million; while total loans, including loans held-for-sale, increased $27.6 million, or 10.1%, to $300.1 million over the same timeframe. At March 31, 2016, the allowance for loan and lease losses totaled $6.3 million, or 2.1% of total loans, excluding loans held-for-sale. Nonperforming assets were 0.2% of total assets at March 31, 2016.

As of March 31, 2016, the Bank’s Stockholders' Equity to Average Total Assets Ratio was 11.5%, and its capital ratios exceeded the regulatory thresholds required to be considered “Well-Capitalized.” During the quarter, the Bank purchased 59,329 shares of its common stock at a total cost of $491,414. As of March 31, 2016, IIB could purchase up to $903,000 worth of additional shares under its previously announced stock buyback plan.

IIB will file its Consolidated Report of Condition and Income for the quarter ended March 31, 2016, ("Call Report") with the Federal Deposit Insurance Corporation by April 30, 2016. It will be available on the Federal Financial Institutions Examinations Council website at
