Idaho Independent Bank Announces 2017 Third Quarter and Year-To-Date Results

COEUR D’ALENE, Idaho, Oct. 11, 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 third quarter and year-to-date ending September 30, 2017.

Pre-tax income for the third quarter was $2.3 million, a $900,000 increase over the $1.4 million earned in the third quarter of 2016. Net income after taxes was $1.4 million, or $0.18 per diluted share, compared to $1.1 million, or $0.14 per diluted share, for the third quarter of 2016. “Pre-tax income increased 64.3% largely due to 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 $248,000 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 nine months ended September 30, 2017, was $3.4 million, or $0.43 per diluted share, compared to $3.0 million, or $0.37 per diluted share, for 2016. The 2016 income tax expense was reduced by a valuation allowance reversal that totaled $761,000, while there was no reversal in 2017.

At September 30, 2017, the Bank's total assets were $686.3 million, an increase of $70.0 million, or 11.4%, when compared to September 30, 2016. Total loans, including loans held-for-sale, increased $57.0 million, or 18.3%, to $367.9 million; while deposits and repurchase agreements increased $65.0 million, or 12.1%, to $601.1 million over the same timeframe. As of September 30, 2017, the allowance for loan and lease losses was $6.3 million, or 1.7% of total loans, excluding loans held-for-sale, and nonperforming assets continued to be less than 0.2% of total assets.

As of quarter end, the Bank’s stockholders' equity to average total assets was 10.1%, and IIB’s capital ratios exceeded the regulatory thresholds required to be considered “Well-Capitalized.” During the quarter, the Bank purchased 9,969 shares of its common stock at a cost of $103,096. IIB may still purchase shares worth up to $1.3 million under its current buyback approval.

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