Idaho Independent Bank Announces 2018 Second Quarter and Year-To-Date Results


COEUR D'ALENE, Idaho, July 16, 2018 (GLOBE NEWSWIRE) -- Jack W. Gustavel, Executive Chairman of Idaho Independent Bank ("IIB" or the "Bank") (OTC:IIBK), announced IIB's unaudited, consolidated financial results for the second quarter and six months ending June 30, 2018.

Mr. Gustavel reported that IIB's net income for the second quarter of 2018 was $1.9 million, or $0.24 per diluted share, an increase of 58.6% when compared to the $1.2 million, or $0.15 per diluted share, earned in the same period a year ago.  "The increase was largely due to improved yields on earning assets, deposit growth, and a lower corporate income tax rate," Chairman Gustavel stated.  Net income for the six months ended June 30, 2018, was $3.3 million, or $0.43 per diluted share, compared to $2.0 million, or $0.25 per diluted share, for the first six months of 2017. 

At June 30, 2018, the Bank's total assets were $725.0 million, an increase of $63.6 million, or 9.6%, when compared to June 30, 2017.  Total loans, including loans held-for-sale, increased $8.0 million, or 2.3%, to $362.0 million; while total deposits and repurchase agreements increased $60.4 million, or 10.4%, to $638.6 million over the same timeframe.  As of June 30, 2018, the allowance for loan and lease losses was $6.3 million, or 1.8% of total loans, excluding loans held-for-sale, and nonperforming assets continued to be less than 0.3% of total assets.

As of quarter end, the Bank's stockholders' equity to average total assets was 9.7%, and IIB's capital ratios exceeded the regulatory thresholds required to be considered "Well-Capitalized."  During the quarter, the Bank purchased 28,926 shares of its common stock at a cost of $373,000.  IIB may still purchase shares worth up to $400,800 under its current buyback approval.  

IIB will file its Consolidated Report of Condition and Income for the quarter ended June 30, 2018, ("Call Report") with the Federal Deposit Insurance Corporation by July 30, 2018, and will be available on the Federal Financial Institutions Examinations Council website at
