(1) Core earnings is a non-GAAP measure that excludes realized and unrealized gains and losses, net of taxes, associated with our securities portfolios.

"We posted our ninth consecutive quarter of record earnings and we made major steps this quarter towards accomplishing several of our long-term goals," noted Mr. Greg Garrabrants, President and Chief Executive Officer, and he continued. "First, our record earnings this quarter were the result of our efforts to expand organic loan growth and to diversify our lending through selected C&I loan types. Second, on April 10th we made a major step toward our goal to significantly expand our prepaid card sponsorship by announcing a definitive agreement with H&R Block, the world's largest consumer tax services provider, to acquire deposits and to provide H&R Block-branded financial services products including the Emerald Prepaid MasterCard, one of the top prepaid card programs in the nation. After approval by our regulators, the agreement to provide H&R Block branded services could increase revenue $26 to $28 million per year from all products planned to be offered in the agreements. Third, our efficiency ratio this quarter decreased to 35.1%, close to our long-term target of 35%, and helped us increase our return on average equity to 17.9% for three months ended March 31, 2014. As we invest in our people and infrastructure to prepare for our continued growth our efficiency ratio may increase from time to time, but our goal of creating greater scale economies in our business remains clear. Finally, net annualized charge-offs to average loans outstanding for the nine months ended March 31, 2014 was six basis points, on track for the lowest annual level since fiscal year ended June 30, 2008."

Other Highlights:

  • Total assets reached $3,850.8 million, up $889.2 million or 30.0% compared to March 31, 2013
  • Loan portfolio grew by $906.1 million or 41.3% compared to March 31, 2013
  • Loan originations for the three months ended March 31, 2014 were $696 million, up 55.9% compared to the quarter ended March 31, 2013
  • Deposits grew by $730 million, or 34.7% compared to March 31, 2013
  • Asset quality remains strong with total non-performing assets of 0.50% of total assets and non-performing loans equal to 0.60% of total loans at March 31, 2014
  • Tangible book value increased to $23.51 per share, up $5.34 per share compared to March 31, 2013

Third Quarter Fiscal 2014 Income Statement Summary
During the quarter ended March 31, 2014, BofI earned $14.6 million or $1.00 per diluted share compared to $10.4 million, or $0.74 per diluted share for the quarter ended March 31, 2013. Net interest income increased $9.5 million or 36.1% for the quarter ended March 31, 2014 compared to March 31, 2013. Average earning assets grew year over year by $861.1 million and our net interest margin was 3.89% compared to 3.74% for the quarters ended March 31, 2014 and 2013, respectively.

The loan loss provision of $1.6 million for the quarter ended March 31, 2014 was consistent with the quarter ended March 31, 2013. This was the result of improvements in non-performing loans and delinquencies this quarter compared to the third quarter of fiscal 2013 and was partially offset by additional provisions needed for growth in the loan portfolio.

For the third quarter ended March 31, 2014, non-interest income was $5.2 million compared to $6.8 million for the three months ended March 31, 2013. The decrease quarter over quarter was primarily the result of a decline of $3.0 million in mortgage banking income and an unrealized loss of $0.6 million in our securities portfolio. The decrease was partially offset by a $1.9 million increase in gain on sale - other and a $0.5 million increase in banking service fees and other income.

Non-interest expense or operating costs increased $0.4 million to $14.3 million for the quarter ended March 31, 2014 from $13.9 million for the three months ended March 31, 2013. The increase was mainly a result of an increase in compensation expense of $0.2 million related to additional staffing added since March 31, 2013, an increase in professional services of $0.5 million, and an increase of $0.8 million in data processing and internet expenses. The increases in staffing and data processing and internet expenses are primarily due to growth of the Bank's lending and deposit operations. This increase in operating costs was partially offset by a decrease in other general and administrative costs of $0.9 million as a result of the cost management initiative implemented to improve the efficiency and effectiveness of people, vendor and other costs. We expect non-interest expense to increase in future periods despite recent cost savings as we plan for future growth initiatives.

Balance Sheet Summary
BofI's total assets increased $760.1 million, or 24.6%, to $3,850.8 million, as of March 31, 2014, up from $3,090.8 million at June 30, 2013. The loan portfolio increased a net $844.5 million, primarily from portfolio loan originations of $1,617.5 million less principal repayments and other adjustments of $773.0 million. Loans held for sale decreased $12.3 million. Investment securities decreased $1.4 million as principal repayments exceeded new security investments. Total liabilities increased by $689.5 million, or 24.4%, to $3,512.0 million at March 31, 2014, up from $2,822.5 million at June 30, 2013. The increase in total liabilities resulted primarily from growth in demand and savings deposits of $930.6 million partially offset by a decline in time deposits of $189.6 million and the expiration of $50.0 million of repurchase agreements. Stockholders' equity increased by $70.6 million, or 26.3%, to $338.8 million at March 31, 2014 from $268.3 million at June 30, 2013. The increase was primarily the result of $39.9 million in net income and sale of common stock of $27.6 million, net of commissions and fees.

The Bank's Tier 1 capital was 9.07% at March 31, 2014, compared to 8.64% at March 31, 2013.

Use of Non-GAAP Financial Measures
In addition to the results presented in accordance with GAAP, this report includes non-GAAP financial measures such as core earnings. Core earnings exclude realized and unrealized gains and losses associated with our securities portfolios. Excluding these gains and losses provides investors with an understanding of BofI's core lending and mortgage banking business. Non-GAAP financial measures that have inherent limitations are not required to be uniformly applied and are not audited. Readers should be aware of these limitations and should be cautious as to their use of such measures. Although BofI believes the non-GAAP financial measures disclosed in this report enhance investors' understanding of its business and performance, these non-GAAP measures should not be considered in isolation, or as a substitute for GAAP basis financial measures. Below is a reconciliation of GAAP net income to core earnings:

Enterprises have been using both Big Data and virtualization for years. Until recently, however, most enterprises have not combined the two. Big Data's demands for higher levels of performance, the ability to control quality-of-service (QoS), and the ability to adhere to SLAs have kept it on bare metal, apart from the modern data center cloud. With recent technology innovations, we've seen the advantages of bare metal erode to such a degree that the enhanced flexibility and reduced costs that ...

More and more brands have jumped on the IoT bandwagon. We have an excess of wearables – activity trackers, smartwatches, smart glasses and sneakers, and more that track seemingly endless datapoints. However, most consumers have no idea what “IoT” means. Creating more wearables that track data shouldn't be the aim of brands; delivering meaningful, tangible relevance to their users should be. We're in a period in which the IoT pendulum is still swinging. Initially, it swung toward "smart for smar...
