First Internet Bancorp Reports Third Quarter, Nine Month 2013 Results: Significant Growth In Loans, Deposits And Total Assets

First Internet Bancorp (NASDAQ: INBK), parent company of First Internet Bank ( www.firstib.com), a premier nationwide provider of online retail banking services and commercial banking services, today announced unaudited financial results for the three months and nine months ended September 30, 2013.

“We are pleased with the significant progress we have made on loan, deposit and asset growth, particularly on the commercial side of our business,” said David Becker, Chairman and CEO. “Our goal is to continue to grow commercial loans and deposits while also growing our national retail business. As expected, our mortgage banking unit was not immune to the increase in interest rates which caused a reduction in our mortgage originations and spreads over the last three months. We have made significant progress in shifting our focus to purchase loans versus refinancings.”

Highlights for the quarter ended September 30, 2013:
  • Total assets were a record $738.52 million at September 30, 2013 compared with $627.68 million at September 30, 2012, up 18%.
  • Total loans excluding those held for sale were $434.17 million at September 30, 2013 compared with $348.84 million at September 30, 2012, an increase of 24%. Commercial loans totaled $168.40 million at September 30, 2013 compared with $89.08 million at September 30, 2012, an 89% increase. Commercial Real Estate loans increased 55% and Commercial and Industrial loans increased 338%.
  • Total deposits were $636.65 million at September 30, 2013 compared with $522.66 million at September 30, 2012, up 22%.
  • Net interest income increased 13% in the quarter ending September 30, 2013 to $4.36 million compared with $3.86 million for the quarter ending September 30, 2012.
  • Net income was $727,000 or $0.25 per diluted share in third quarter 2013 compared with $1.63 million or $0.57 per diluted share in third quarter 2012. The decrease in net income for the quarter was primarily attributed to the decline in revenue from the company’s mortgage banking operations.

Highlights for the nine months ended September 30, 2013:
  • Net interest income was $12.48 million compared with $11.75 million for the prior year period, an increase of 6%.
  • Total non-interest income rose to $8.35 million compared with $7.61 million for the prior year period, an increase of 10%.
  • For the first nine months of 2013, net income was $3.93 million or $1.36 per diluted share compared with $4.05 million or $1.41 per diluted share for the first nine months of 2012.

“Interest rate fluctuations affected all national mortgage lenders this quarter, and we too experienced the slowdown in mortgage refinancing activity that was triggered by increased interest rates,” Becker said. “To reduce our sensitivity to rate adjustments, our mortgage banking unit has made significant progress during the quarter on transitioning from a refinance-based national mortgage origination platform to becoming a preferred home purchase lender. During this quarter, 51% of the mortgages we closed were for home purchases, compared to 12% in third quarter 2012.”

Becker also noted, “Our commercial lending teams continue to have great success in growing their loan portfolios by increasing the number and types of borrowers while achieving a balanced and diversified mix of loans. Our expanding loan portfolio fuels growth in interest income and non-interest income. Additionally, our teams are focused on building non-interest bearing deposit account relationships, which not only offers the company an attractive low-cost source of funding but also demonstrates our ability to build more robust banking relationships.”

Third Quarter Income Statement Highlights

For the quarter ended September 30, 2013, net interest income was $4.36 million, up 13% from $3.86 million in third quarter 2012. The increase in net interest income is a result of both an increase in interest income from loan growth and a decrease in interest expense.

“We have taken measured steps to grow the balance sheet in ways that will yield a positive outcome in net interest income in future periods,” Becker said. “Our significant loan growth in the third quarter will lead to expanded interest income, while continued deposit repricing will have a favorable impact on interest expense.”

Total noninterest expense in third quarter 2013 was $5.14 million compared with $4.11 million in third quarter 2012. Increased salaries and benefits expense reflected continued investment in experienced talent in commercial banking, compliance, finance and mortgage lending.

Net income was $727,000 or $0.25 per diluted share compared with $1.63 million or $0.57 per diluted share for the quarter September 30, 2012. The decrease in net income was attributed to the decrease in revenue from mortgage banking activities. Revenue from mortgage banking activities decreased from $3.21 million for the quarter ended September 30, 2012 to $1.30 million for the quarter ended September 30, 2013.

Balance Sheet, Deposit Growth, Loan Activity and Asset Quality Highlights

The company’s total assets were $738.52 million at September 30, 2013, up 18% from $627.68 million at September 30, 2012. Total deposits were a record $636.65 million at September 30, 2013 compared with $522.66 million at September 30, 2012. Loans receivable after allowance for loan losses were $434.17 million at September 30, 2013 compared with $348.84 million at September 30, 2012, with the portfolio reflecting the strong growth in commercial lending.

Commercial real estate loans receivable were $121.03 million at September 30, 2013 compared with $78.27 million a year ago, and commercial and industrial loans receivable totals grew to $47.37 million compared with $10.81 million a year ago. Commercial loans comprised 39% of the loan portfolio excluding mortgages held for sale at September 30, 2013 compared with 25% at September 30, 2012.

Loan and asset quality remained strong, with non-performing loans at September 30, 2013 declining to $2.66 million from $8.97 million at September 30, 2012. Non-performing loans to total loans was 0.61% in third quarter 2013 compared with 2.55% in third quarter 2012. The loan loss allowance to total loans receivable was 1.26% at September 30, 2013.

Becker concluded, “We are committed to growing the First Internet Bank brand, which continues to be well received by a growing base of satisfied consumer and commercial customers.
