Idaho First Bank Reports 2013 Results

MCCALL, ID -- (Marketwired) -- 01/15/14 -- Today Idaho First Bank (OTCQB: IDFB) reported financial results for the year ended December 31, 2013. The Bank reported net income of $1,216,000 for the year, compared to net income of $262,000 in 2012. Net income before taxes was up 77%, from $262,000 in 2012 to $464,000 in 2013. Net income was enhanced as the Bank began to utilize the benefit of its deferred tax asset. "We believe the results speak for themselves," stated Mark Miller, Chairman of the Board. "The Bank can be proud of its continuing improvement in its financial performance."

Comparing the two years, the Bank achieved a 10% increase in net interest income. This was driven by average loan growth of 3% and net interest margin improving from 3.88% to 4.10%. Improving credit quality allowed for a reduction in the provision for loan losses from $685,000 to $410,000. Mortgage banking income was up 31%, contributing to the improved results. "The performance of the loan portfolio is having a positive impact on our earnings. Lower problem loan levels also contributed to the improvement in the net interest margin," stated Greg Lovell, President and CEO. Further Mr. Lovell said, "Our focus on the purchase market for our real estate group continues to strengthen our position as a leader in mortgage lending."

Nonperforming assets were $1.5 million at December 31, 2013, a decrease of 20% from the prior year. The allowance for loan losses was 1.52% of loans at December 31. During 2013 the Bank restructured its occupancy cost which lowered costs significantly and provided addition capital to the Bank. Net income was significantly affected by a tax benefit of $752,000, as the Bank recognized a tax benefit for a portion of net operating loss carry forwards.

The Bank successfully raised $3.4 million of new capital stock during the year. With increased earnings and additional stock the Bank's shareholders' equity reached $9.5 million, or 10% of assets at the end of December. Book value per share was 59 cents at December 31, 2013.

"The Bank has reached a capital level that is strong," stated Chairman Miller. President Lovell stated, "We continue to have improving economic conditions in our market areas that should allow continued improvement in our operating performance."

Idaho First Bank is a state-chartered commercial bank that opened for business in October 2005. Its headquarters are located in McCall, Idaho, with a branch and a mortgage banking office located in Boise.
