Idaho Independent Bank Announces 2017 First Quarter Results

COEUR D’ALENE, Idaho, April 13, 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 first quarter ended March 31, 2017.

For the quarter, before tax income was $1,233,000, or 48% better than the $835,000 earned in the first quarter of 2016. After tax income for 2017 was $783,000, or $0.10 per diluted share, compared to $772,000, or $0.09 per diluted share, in the first quarter of 2016. “Growth in loan and deposit relationships was the primary driver of the substantial increase in profitability,” Mr. Gustavel said. Income tax expense for the 2016 quarter included a tax benefit related to the reversal of the Bank’s deferred tax valuation allowance in the amount of $220,000, while there was no reversal benefit in 2017.

At March 31, 2017, the Bank's total assets were $666.6 million, an increase of $103.3 million, or 18.3%, when compared to March 31, 2016. Total loans, including loans held-for-sale, increased $29.5 million, or 9.8%, to $329.6 million; while deposits and repurchase agreements increased $98.7 million, or 20.3%, to $584.5 million over the same timeframe. As of March 31, 2017, the allowance for loan and lease losses was $6.3 million, or 1.9% of total loans, excluding loans held-for-sale, and nonperforming assets were only 0.2% of total assets.

Also, as of quarter end, the Bank’s Stockholders' Equity to Average Total Assets Ratio was 10.1%, and its capital ratios exceeded the regulatory thresholds required to be considered “Well-Capitalized.” During the quarter, the Bank purchased 5,178 shares of its common stock at a cost of $49,000. The Bank may still purchase shares worth up to $2.1 million under its current buyback approval.

IIB will file its Consolidated Report of Condition and Income for the quarter ended March 31, 2017, ("Call Report") with the Federal Deposit Insurance Corporation by April 30, 2017. The Call Report will be posted on the Federal Financial Institutions Examinations Council website at
