Idaho Independent Bank Announces 2017 Second Quarter and Year-to-Date Results

COEUR D’ALENE, Idaho, July 13, 2017 (GLOBE NEWSWIRE) -- Jack W. Gustavel, Chairman and Chief Executive Officer of Idaho Independent Bank (“IIB” or the “Bank”) (OTC Pink:IIBK), announced IIB’s unaudited, consolidated financial results for the second quarter and year-to-date ending June 30, 2017.

Pre-tax income for the second quarter was $1.9 million, an increase of 58% over the $1.2 million earned in the second quarter of 2016. Net income after taxes for 2017 was $1.2 million, or $0.15 per diluted share, compared to $1.1 million, or $0.13 per diluted share, for the second quarter of 2016. “Pre-tax income was helped by strong loan and deposit growth and an increase in the Bank’s net interest margin,” Mr. Gustavel said. Income tax expense for the 2016 quarter included a $294,000 benefit related to a reversal of the Bank’s deferred tax valuation allowance, while there was no reversal in 2017. After-tax income for the six months ended June 30, 2017, was $2.0 million, or $0.25 per diluted share, compared to $1.8 million, or $0.23 per diluted share, for 2016. The 2016 income tax expense was reduced by a valuation allowance reversal that totaled $513,000, while there was no reversal in 2017.

At June 30, 2017, the Bank's total assets were $661.4 million, an increase of $70.6 million, or 11.9%, when compared to June 30, 2016. Total loans, including loans held-for-sale, increased $42.0 million, or 13.5%, to $354.0 million; while deposits and repurchase agreements increased $66.7 million, or 13.0%, to $578.2 million over the same timeframe. As of June 30, 2017, the allowance for loan and lease losses was $6.3 million, or 1.8% of total loans, excluding loans held-for-sale, and nonperforming assets were less than 0.2% of total assets.

As of quarter end, the Bank’s stockholders' equity to average total assets was 10.0%, and its capital ratios exceeded the regulatory thresholds required to be considered “Well-Capitalized.” During the quarter, the Bank purchased 70,617 shares of its common stock at a cost of $684,293. IIB may still purchase shares worth up to $1.4 million under its current buyback approval.

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