First Interstate BancSystem, Inc. Reports Fourth Quarter 2012 Results

Decreases in net interest margin ratio during the three and twelve months ended December 31, 2012, as compared to the same periods in 2011, were due to lower outstanding loan balances and lower yields earned on the Company's loan and investment portfolios, which were partially offset by reductions in the cost of interest bearing liabilities combined with a shift from higher-costing savings and time deposits to lower-costing demand deposits.

Non-interest Income

Non-interest income increased during the three and twelve months ended December 31, 2012, as compared to the same periods in 2011 and the three months ended September 30, 2012, primarily due to increases in income from the origination and sale of residential mortgage loans. New loans for home purchases accounted for approximately 35% of our 2012 residential loan production, compared to 44% in 2011.

Salaries and wages increased during the three and twelve months ended December 31, 2012, as compared to the same periods in the prior year, primarily due to higher incentive bonus accruals reflective of the Company's improved performance, inflationary wage increases and increases in commissions and overtime related to the substantial increase in residential real estate loan activity.
