First Interstate BancSystem, Inc. Reports Preliminary Results For Fourth Quarter 2011

Investment securities gains increased during the fourth quarter 2011, as compared to third quarter 2011 and fourth quarter 2010, primarily due to the recognition of unamortized discounts on investment securities called by the issuing agencies during fourth quarter 2011.

Fluctuations in other income during fourth quarter 2011, as compared to third quarter 2011 and fourth quarter 2010, were primarily due to fluctuations in the market values of securities held under deferred compensation plans. Market value adjustments for securities held under deferred compensation plans resulted in other income of $12 thousand during fourth quarter 2011, as compared to expense of $572 thousand during third quarter 2011 and income of $548 thousand during fourth quarter 2010. During the twelve months ended December 31, 2011, market value adjustments for securities held under deferred compensation plans resulted in other income of $161 thousand, as compared to expense of $545 thousand during the same period in 2010.

Salaries, wages and employee benefits increased in fourth quarter 2011, as compared to third quarter 2011, primarily due to increases in incentive bonus accruals and fluctuations in the market values of securities held under deferred compensation plans. During the three and twelve months ended December 31, 2011, as compared to the same periods in 2010, salaries, wages and employee benefits decreased primarily due to lower group health insurance costs, fluctuations in the market values of securities held under deferred compensation plans and reductions in full-time equivalent employees. These decreases were partially offset by normal inflationary wage increases and increases in incentive bonus accruals.
