Idaho First Bank Reports Record Year-End Results

MCCALL, ID -- (Marketwire) -- 01/15/13 -- Today Idaho First Bank (OTCQB: IDFB) reported financial results for the year ended December 31, 2012. The Bank reported record net income of $262,000 for 2012, compared to a loss of $143,000 in 2011. This represents six consecutive quarters of profitability for the Bank and the first full calendar year of profitability.

"The Bank showed improvement in many critical areas including: loan growth, increased net interest margin and strong growth in non-interest income," said Greg Lovell, President and Chief Executive Officer. He further stated, "We are pleased to have reached this milestone but we will continue to focus on improving credit quality, growth of earning assets and expense control."

Compared to the prior year, the Bank achieved a 33% increase in net interest income. This was driven by average loan growth of 19% and an improving net interest margin. Net interest margin improved from 3.02% in 2011 to 3.88% in 2012. Year-to-date mortgage banking income also grew substantially from $875,000 in 2011 to $1,938,000 in 2012. Net income for the fourth quarter of 2012 was $118,000, a record for the highest quarterly income in the Bank's history. Net income of $118,000 for the quarter compares with quarterly income of $71,000 in the same quarter of 2011 and $105,000 of quarterly income in the third quarter of 2012.

"The Board is proud of the hard work of staff and management in reaching our first year of profitability and a record quarterly income," stated Mark Miller, Chairman of the Board of Directors.

Nonperforming assets were $1.8 million at December 31, 2012, a decrease of 5% from the prior year. The allowance for loan losses was 1.54% of loans at December 31 and 110% of nonperforming loans. Mr. Lovell commented, "We are cautiously optimistic about the improving trends in our portfolio. We continue to closely monitor the performance of our loan portfolio and aggressively take action as problems arise."

Stockholders' equity was $5.0 million at December 31, 2012, or 6% of assets. Book value was 61 cents per share, two cents more than at the end of 2011.

DevOps tends to focus on the relationship between Dev and Ops, putting an emphasis on the ops and application infrastructure. But that’s changing with microservices architectures. In her session at DevOps Summit, Lori MacVittie, Evangelist for F5 Networks, will focus on how microservices are changing the underlying architectures needed to scale, secure and deliver applications based on highly distributed (micro) services and why that means an expansion into “the network” for DevOps.
"We have a tagline - "Power in the API Economy." What that means is everything that is built in applications and connected applications is done through APIs," explained Roberto Medrano, Executive Vice President at Akana, in this SYS-CON.tv interview at 16th Cloud Expo, held June 9-11, 2015, at the Javits Center in New York City.
Containers have changed the mind of IT in DevOps. They enable developers to work with dev, test, stage and production environments identically. Containers provide the right abstraction for microservices and many cloud platforms have integrated them into deployment pipelines. DevOps and Containers together help companies to achieve their business goals faster and more effectively. In his session at DevOps Summit, Ruslan Synytsky, CEO and Co-founder of Jelastic, reviewed the current landscape of...
"AgilData is the next generation of dbShards. It just adds a whole bunch more functionality to improve the developer experience," noted Dan Lynn, CEO of AgilData, in this SYS-CON.tv interview at 16th Cloud Expo, held June 9-11, 2015, at the Javits Center in New York City.
The Internet of Things is not only adding billions of sensors and billions of terabytes to the Internet. It is also forcing a fundamental change in the way we envision Information Technology. For the first time, more data is being created by devices at the edge of the Internet rather than from centralized systems. What does this mean for today's IT professional? In this Power Panel at @ThingsExpo, moderated by Conference Chair Roger Strukhoff, panelists addressed this very serious issue of pro...
The cloud has transformed how we think about software quality. Instead of preventing failures, we must focus on automatic recovery from failure. In other words, resilience trumps traditional quality measures. Continuous delivery models further squeeze traditional notions of quality. Remember the venerable project management Iron Triangle? Among time, scope, and cost, you can only fix two or quality will suffer. Only in today's DevOps world, continuous testing, integration, and deployment upend...

Discussions about cloud computing are evolving into discussions about enterprise IT in general. As enterprises increasingly migrate toward their own unique clouds, new issues such as the use of containers and microservices emerge to keep things interesting.

Explosive growth in connected devices. Enormous amounts of data for collection and analysis. Critical use of data for split-second decision making and actionable information.

How should your organization enhance its IT framework to enable an Internet of Things implementation? In his session at @ThingsExpo, James Kirkland, Red Hat's Chief Arch...
In the midst of the widespread popularity and adoption of cloud computing, it seems like everything is being offered “as a Service” these days: Infrastructure? Check. Platform? You bet. Software? Absolutely. Toaster? It’s only a matter of time. With service providers positioning vastly differing offerings under a generic “cloud” umbrella, it’s all too easy to get confused about what’s actually being offered. In his session at 16th Cloud Expo, Kevin Hazard, Director of Digital Content for SoftL...
"A lot of the enterprises that have been using our systems for many years are reaching out to the cloud - the public cloud, the private cloud and hybrid," stated Reuven Harrison, CTO and Co-Founder of Tufin, in this SYS-CON.tv interview at 16th Cloud Expo, held June 9-11, 2015, at the Javits Center in New York City.
One of the hottest areas in cloud right now is DRaaS and related offerings.
