"We delivered solid operating results while continuing to invest in our future," stated Greg Garrabrants, President and Chief Executive Officer. "Net loan growth of 25.3% was led by strong loan production in C&I, warehouse, and auto lending and factoring. Investments we have made over the past several years continue to diversify our revenue streams and funding, as reflected in the 50.5% increase in non-interest income and 33.0% increase in our deposits this quarter. We have many exciting new business and strategic initiatives underway that will enable us to maintain strong growth in earnings and industry-leading returns and credit performance," Mr. Garrabrants concluded.

First Quarter Fiscal 2017 Income Statement Summary

During the quarter ended September 30, 2016, BofI earned $28.9 million or $0.45 per diluted share compared to $25.5 million, or $0.40 per diluted share for the quarter ended September 30, 2015. Net interest income increased $10.7 million or 18.0% for the quarter ended September 30, 2016 compared to September 30, 2015, due to the $1.5 billion growth in average-earning assets.

The loan and lease loss provision was $1.9 million for the quarter ended September 30, 2016 compared to $2.4 million for the quarter ended September 30, 2015. The decrease in the provision is primarily the result of changes in loan mix, slower loan growth, and lower outstanding balances associated with certain older vintage loans that carried increased allocations of the allowance for loan and lease losses.

For the first quarter ended September 30, 2016, non-interest income was $14.7 million compared to $9.8 million for the three months ended September 30, 2015. The increase year over year was the result of an increase in mortgage banking income of $3.3 million and banking service fees and other income of $2.2 million, primarily due to H&R Block-branded products and service fee income.

Non-interest expense or operating costs increased $10.0 million to $32.9 million for the quarter ended September 30, 2016 from $22.9 million for the three months ended September 30, 2015. The increase was mainly a result of an increase in salaries and related expense of $5.1 million related to staffing added since September 30, 2015, an increase in data processing and internet expense of $1.3 million, an increase in professional services of $1.0 million, an increase in advertising and promotional of $0.9 million and an increase of $0.6 million in other general and administrative costs. The increases in staffing primarily support loan, deposit, data processing and software initiatives.

"Net interest margin improved to 3.78% this quarter from 3.72% for the quarter ended June 30, 2016," added Andy Micheletti, Executive Vice President and Chief Financial Officer. "Without the impact of higher than expected liquidity from our H&R Block partnership, our net interest margin would have been 3.84% in the first quarter of 2017. Our 2017 first quarter efficiency ratio is higher than the annual efficiency ratio that we expect to achieve in the fiscal year because of the seasonality of our tax-related revenue. Our efficiency ratio will be lower in quarters when we receive increased seasonal tax-related fee income."

Balance Sheet Summary

BofI's total assets increased $255.7 million, or 3.4%, to $7,855.0 million, as of September 30, 2016, up from $7,599.3 million at June 30, 2016. The loan portfolio increased $195.1 million on a net basis, primarily from portfolio loan originations and purchases of $925.2 million less principal repayments and other adjustments of $730.1 million. Loans held for sale decreased $3.0 million. Investment securities decreased $20.0 million primarily due to securities principal receipts and sales. Total liabilities increased by $215.4 million, or 3.1%, to $7,133.2 million at September 30, 2016, up from $6,917.8 million at June 30, 2016. The increase in total liabilities resulted primarily from growth in deposits of $279.8 million. Stockholders' equity increased by $38.3 million, or 5.6%, to $721.9 million at September 30, 2016 from $683.6 million at June 30, 2016. The increase was primarily the result of $28.9 million in net income and $7.9 million in unrealized gain in available-for-sale securities in other comprehensive income.

The Bank's Tier 1 core capital to adjusted average assets ratio was 9.2% at September 30, 2016.

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 adjusted earnings. Adjusted 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 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.
