Idaho First Bank Reports Quarterly Results

MCCALL, ID -- (Marketwired) -- 04/18/14 -- Today Idaho First Bank (OTCQB: IDFB) reported financial results for the quarter ended March 31, 2014. The Bank reported net income of $197,000 for the first quarter, compared to net income of $106,000 in the same quarter in 2013. "We achieved our eleventh straight quarter of profitability," stated Mark Miller, Chairman of the Board. He further commented, "We are seeing the economic conditions of our primary market areas improve and believe we can continue our improvement in operating results."

Net income was favorably impacted by tax benefits, a reduction in provision for loan losses and a 14% improvement in net interest income. Mortgage banking income was down 57% partially a result of a drop in home refinancing. The operating results were negatively impacted by one-time expenses relating to the opening of the Boise branch and other strategic initiatives. "We believe our mortgage operations will rebound as home purchases continue to show strength," commented President Greg Lovell. He further stated, "We are achieving improvements in the fundamentals of banking i.e., loan growth, reduced loan losses, and core deposit acquisition."

The 14% improvement in net interest margin was due to an 11% increase in average loans and an increase in net interest margin from 3.91% to 4.25%.

Nonperforming assets were $1.5 million at March 31, 2014, down slightly from December 31, 2013. The allowance for loan losses was 5% higher than a year ago. However, because of a 15% growth in period-end loans, the ratio of allowance to loans declined from 1.37% to 1.25%.

Shareholders' equity at March 31 was at $9.7 million, an increase of $3.3 million from a year ago. Book value per share increased to 60 cents at March 31, 2014.

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.
