Idaho Independent Bank Announces 2016 Third Quarter and Year-to-Date Results

COEUR D’ALENE, Idaho, Oct. 17, 2016 (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 third quarter and nine months ended September 30, 2016. 

“The Bank had strong year-over-year loan and deposit growth and improved profitability during the third quarter of 2016,” Mr. Gustavel said.  Net income for the quarter was $1.1 million, or $0.14 per diluted share, compared to $.9 million, or $0.11 per diluted share, for the third quarter a year ago.  Net income for the nine months ended September 30, 2016, was $3.0 million, or $0.37 per diluted share, compared to $2.5 million, or $0.31 per diluted share, for the first nine months of 2015.  Revenue during the nine months of 2015 included $.8 million of non-recurring interest income related to resolving a problem loan. Income tax expense for each period included reversals of the Bank’s deferred tax valuation allowance sufficient to offset some or all of the income tax expense.  As of September 30, 2016, IIB had set aside $.4 million as a provision for 2016’s income tax liability and was still carrying a tax valuation allowance of approximately $.3 million that may be used to reduce future income tax expense. 

At September 30, 2016, the Bank’s total assets were $616.3 million, an increase of $57.2 million, or 10.2%, when compared to September 30, 2015.  Total loans, including loans held-for-sale, increased $21.0 million, or 7.2%, to $310.9 million; while deposits and repurchase agreements increased $52.6 million, or 10.9%, to $536.1 million over the same timeframe.  At September 30, 2016, the allowance for loan and lease losses totaled $6.3 million, or 2.1% of total loans, excluding loans held-for-sale.  Nonperforming assets were 0.2% of total assets at September 30, 2016.

As of September 30, 2016, the Bank’s Stockholders’ Equity to Average Total Assets Ratio was 10.8%, and its capital ratios exceeded the regulatory thresholds required to be considered “Well-Capitalized.”  During the quarter, the Bank purchased 142,670 shares of its common stock at a total cost of $1.2 million.  As of September 30, 2016, IIB could still purchase $2.0 million worth of additional shares under its revised and extended stock buyback plan.  

IIB will file its Consolidated Report of Condition and Income for the quarter ended September 30, 2016, (“Call Report”) with the Federal Deposit Insurance Corporation by October 30, 2016.  It will be available on the Federal Financial Institutions Examinations Council website at
