Idaho Independent Bank Announces 2016 Fourth Quarter and Year-End Results

COEUR D’ALENE, Idaho, Feb. 14, 2017 (GLOBE NEWSWIRE) -- Jack W. Gustavel, Chairman and Chief Executive Officer of Idaho Independent Bank (“IIB” or the “Bank”) (OTC BB:IIBK), announced IIB’s unaudited, consolidated financial results for the fourth quarter and year ended December 31, 2016.

Net income before tax for 2016 was $4.9 million, a 40% increase when compared to 2015. “The improvement mainly came from growth in loan and deposit relationships combined with improved efficiencies,” Mr. Gustavel said. Income tax expense for both years included reversals of the Bank’s deferred tax valuation allowance. Approximately $3.0 million was reversed in 2015, while only $1.0 million was reversed in 2016. Consequently, net income after tax for the year ended December 31, 2016, was $4.1 million, or $0.51 per diluted share, compared to $5.2 million, or $0.63 per diluted share, for 2015. Net income after tax for the fourth quarter of 2016 was $1.2 million, or $0.15 per diluted share, compared to $2.7 million, or $0.33 per diluted share, for the fourth quarter a year ago. The fourth quarter of 2015 included $1.8 million of net tax benefit.

At December 31, 2016, the Bank's total assets were $618.8 million, an increase of $62.8 million, or 11.3%, when compared to December 31, 2015. Total loans, including loans held-for-sale, increased $32.5 million, or 11.2%, to $324.6 million; while deposits and repurchase agreements increased $61.0 million, or 12.8%, to $538.9 million over the same timeframe. As of December 31, 2016, the allowance for loan and lease losses totaled $6.1 million, or 1.9% of total loans, excluding loans held-for-sale. Nonperforming assets were only 0.3% of total assets as of December 31, 2016.

As of December 31, 2016, the Bank’s Stockholders' Equity to Average Total Assets Ratio was 10.4%, and its capital ratios exceeded the regulatory thresholds required to be considered “Well-Capitalized.” During 2016, the Bank purchased 497,189 shares of its common stock at a cost of $4.1 million, representing 6% of the shares outstanding at the beginning of the year. IIB previously announced an increase to its Buyback Plan, so currently, the Bank may purchase up to $2.2 million worth of additional shares.

IIB filed its Consolidated Report of Condition and Income for the quarter ended December 31, 2016, ("Call Report") with the Federal Deposit Insurance Corporation on January 26, 2017 and is available on the Federal Financial Institutions Examinations Council website at
