First Internet Bancorp Reports Fourth Quarter, Full Year 2013 Financial Results: Loan Growth, Strategic Initiatives Drive Success

By Business Wire,  January 29, 2014, 08:39:00 AM EDT


INDIANAPOLIS--(BUSINESS WIRE)-- First Internet Bancorp (NASDAQ:INBK), parent company of First Internet Bank of Indiana (www.firstib.com), a premier nationwide provider of online retail banking services and commercial banking services, today announced unaudited financial results for the three and 12 months ended December 31, 2013.

David Becker, Chairman and CEO, commented: "For First Internet Bancorp, 2013 was another year of strong growth. With year-over-year net loans receivable increasing 41%, it is evident that efforts to expand our loan origination capabilities and diversify our revenue streams have been successful. Commercial loans receivable almost doubled, year over year, and now represent 40% of our loans receivable. Our expanding loan portfolio generated increased net interest income, which was up 10% in 2013. This partially offset a decrease in noninterest income caused by a nationwide slowing in mortgage refinancing activity.

"To support our positive momentum and enable continued growth, the company completed a public offering of common stock during the fourth quarter, which provided $29.1 million of new capital. Of course, the 58% year-over-year increase in common shares outstanding impacted our earnings per share ratio."

Highlights for the Three Months ended December 31, 2013:

  • Net income was $666,000 or $0.19 per diluted share compared with $1.55 million or $0.54 per diluted share in the prior year period.
  • Net interest income increased 21% to $4.96 million compared to $4.09 million for the prior year period.
  • Net interest income after provision for loan losses increased 42% to $4.74 million compared to $3.35 million for the prior year period.
  • Net interest margin was 2.70%.
  • Nonperforming assets to total assets declined to 0.90% at December 31, 2013 compared with 1.62% at December 31, 2012.
  • The company established First Internet Bank Business Capital to expand the company's commercial lending efforts by offering asset-based financing options.
  • First Internet Bank was named top Online Mortgage Originator for 2013 by Mortgage Technology.

Highlights for the Year Ended December 31, 2013:

  • Net income was $4.59 million or $1.51 per diluted share compared with $5.61 million or $1.95 per diluted share for 2012.
  • Net interest income increased 10% to $17.45 million compared to $15.84 million for 2012.
  • Net interest income after provision for loan losses increased 32% in 2013 to $17.12 million.
  • Total assets were a record $802.34 million at December 31, 2013 compared with $636.37 million at December 31, 2012, up 26%.
  • Net loans receivable were $495.73 million at December 31, 2013 compared with $352.33 million at December 31, 2012, an increase of 41%.
  • Total commercial loans increased to $197.60 million at December 31, 2013 compared with $99.19 million at December 31, 2012. Commercial Real Estate loans increased 68% and Commercial and Industrial loans increased 287% compared with December 31, 2012.
  • Total deposits increased to $673.10 million at December 31, 2013 compared with $530.69 million at December 31, 2012, up 27%.

Becker stated, "In 2013, we made investments to support the meaningful growth of our company. As a result, our deposits, loans and total assets all grew at double-digit levels. We expanded our infrastructure as well as our expertise to support growth as a larger, more diversified retail and commercial banking entity. Over the past year, we added experienced talent in commercial banking, mortgage lending and compliance. An experienced team specializing in asset-based lending also joined the company. This group will provide working capital to small to medium sized companies, enabling us to continue expanding our commercial loan platform.

"We are focused on generating meaningful returns to our shareholders. We joined NASDAQ during the first quarter because we believed doing so would increase the profile of the company and improve stockholder liquidity. We also established quarterly cash dividends, giving shareholders a return on investment. In the fourth quarter, we completed our first SEC-registered offering."

Fourth Quarter and Full Year 2013 Income Statement Highlights

For the quarter ended December 31, 2013, net interest income was $4.96 million, up 21% from $4.09 million for the quarter ended December 31, 2012. The increase reflected greater revenue from loans - commercial as well as residential mortgage - and a 5% decrease in interest expense. Reflecting continued credit quality, the company's provision for loan losses declined to $223,000 in fourth quarter 2013 compared with $744,000 in fourth quarter 2012. Total noninterest expense in the fourth quarter 2013 was $5.26 million compared with $4.83 million in fourth quarter 2012 reflecting the company's continued investment in its strategic initiatives. Fourth quarter 2013 net income was $666,000 compared with $1.55 million for the quarter ended December 31, 2012.

Net income for the year ended December 31, 2013 was $4.59 million compared with $5.61 million in the prior year. Net interest income increased 10% for the year ended December 31, 2013 to $17.45 million compared to $15.84 million for the year ended December 31, 2012. During 2013, revenue from mortgage banking declined 19% from 2012 as refinancing slowed in the third and fourth quarters impacted noninterest income for the year. Noninterest expenses increased as the company made investment in proven talent, premises, and marketing expenses to support growth. The company also faced expenses related with NASDAQ listing and becoming an SEC-reporting company.

"As anticipated, the industry-wide slowing of residential mortgage refinancing activity affected our year-over-year net income," Becker said. "This is exactly why we have continued building a nationwide franchise and diversifying to our revenue streams. We benefited from a nationwide residential mortgage refinancing boom in 2012 and the first half of 2013 and will continue our efforts to increase our presence in home purchase financing. We believe the bank is well positioned to compete effectively in the mortgage business with our web-based infrastructure and experienced team. Our commercial teams bring versatility to our lending and deposit-gathering capabilities and thus to our income opportunities moving forward."

Total assets at December 31, 2013 were $802.34 million compared with $636.37 million at December 31, 2012. The balance sheet reflected a 27% increase in total deposits at year-end 2013 to $673.10 million compared with $530.69 million at year-end 2012.

Total net loans receivable increased 41% to $495.73 million at December 31, 2013 compared with $352.33 million at December 31, 2012. Total commercial loans were $197.60 millionDecember 31, 2013 compared with $99.19 million at December 31, 2012, reflecting growth in both Commercial Real Estate and Commercial and Industrial lending.

Commercial and Industrial loans rose to $55.17 million at year-end 2013 compared with $14.27 million at year-end 2012.

"Our success in both the Commercial Real Estate and Commercial and Industrial businesses was particularly gratifying, demonstrating our ability to win new relationships in an extremely competitive environment," Becker noted.

Residential real estate loans retained by the bank were $191.01 million at year-end 2013, representing 39% of the loan portfolio excluding mortgages held for sale, compared with $128.82 million at year-end 2012.

Becker concluded: "Strategic initiatives during the past several years reflect our confidence in building the First Internet Bank franchise to be a leader in web-based retail banking and commercial banking. Our investments in building our retail and commercial business lines have generated substantial success for the company and its shareholders, and we expect our 2013 investments to drive long term growth. As we demonstrated by establishing a quarterly dividend program to common shareholders in 2013, we are committed to building shareholder value."
