First Interstate BancSystem, Inc. Reports Strong Third Quarter Earnings On Improved Credit Quality

The Company charged-off loans of $5 million during third quarter 2013, compared to $4 million during second quarter 2013 and $15 million during third quarter 2012. Recoveries of charged-off loans were $2 million during third quarter 2013, compared to $4 million during second quarter 2013 and $2 million during third quarter 2012. Approximately 29% of the third quarter 2013 charge-offs related to the loans of one commercial and one commercial real estate borrower.

The Company reversed $3.0 million of provision for loan losses during third quarter 2013, as compared to recording provisions of $375 thousand during second quarter 2013 and $9.5 million during third quarter 2012. The third quarter 2013 reversal of provision is reflective of continued improvement in and stabilization of credit quality as evidenced by declining levels of non-performing assets and criticized loans. As of September 30, 2013, non-performing assets and total criticized assets were at their lowest quarterly levels since 2008.

Beginning in 2013, the Company no longer presents accruing loans modified in troubled debt restructurings as non-performing loans. While still considered impaired under applicable accounting guidance, these loans are performing as agreed under their modified terms and management expects performance to continue. Prior period balances and ratios have been adjusted to reflect this change.
