COEUR D'ALENE, Idaho, Oct. 29, 2012 (GLOBE NEWSWIRE) -- Jack W. Gustavel, Chairman and Chief Executive Officer of Idaho Independent Bank ("IIB" or the "Bank") (OTCBB:IIBK), announced IIB's consolidated unaudited financial results for the third quarter and nine months ended September 30, 2012.

Mr. Gustavel reported that IIB's net loss for the quarter ended September 30, 2012, was $5.0 million, or $0.61 per diluted share, compared to a net loss of $608,000, or $0.10 per diluted share, for the same period a year ago. The Bank's net loss for the nine months ended September 30, 2012, was $5.9 million, or $0.72 per diluted share, compared to a net loss of $2.7 million, or $0.42 per diluted share, for the same nine-month period a year ago.

"The loss for the quarter was primarily due to writing down certain other real estate owned ("OREO") and adding to IIB's Reserve for Loan and Lease Loss Account ("ALLL"). This is part of our strategy to improve asset quality and help return the Bank to profitability as quickly as possible," Mr. Gustavel said.

IIB's total assets as of September 30, 2012, decreased $800,000, or less than 1.0%, to $453.0 million from $453.8 million at September 30, 2011. Also, as of quarter end, total loans decreased $12.0 million, or 4.8%, when compared to the third quarter of 2011. Deposits and repurchase agreements increased $1.4 million, or less than 1.0%, to $384.4 million from $383.0 million at September 30, 2011. Nonperforming assets decreased by $3.8 million at September 30, 2012, or 12.1%, when compared to the year earlier. IIB's ALLL totaled $6.9 million, or 2.93% of total loans, excluding loans held for sale, at September 30, 2012.

The Bank's capital ratios remain above the thresholds required to be considered "Well-Capitalized" under regulatory guidelines. The Bank's Total Risk-Based Capital Ratio was 15.94% at September 30, 2012, compared to 17.14% at September 30, 2011.

The Bank will file its Consolidated Report of Condition and Income for the quarter ended September 30, 2012, (the "Call Report") with the Federal Deposit Insurance Corporation ("FDIC") on October 30, 2012. The Call Report will subsequently be posted by the FDIC on its website at
