First Internet Bank of Indiana (First IB) today announced net income of $495,998 for the quarter ended September 30, 2004, up 200% from the same quarter in the previous year.
“First IB has experienced profitable growth throughout 2004, Net Interest Income has increased each quarter and Non-Interest Expenses have been held to modest increases,” said David B. Becker, Chairman and CEO of First IB. “The result is significant improvement in Net Income over 2003 levels. We remain focused on improving performance and increasing shareholder value.”
As of September 30, 2004, First IB held $313.1 million in deposits, a 15% increase over deposits as of September 30, 2003. The Bank’s loan portfolio grew by $84.1 million, or 47%, as compared to the same quarter in the previous year as First IB continued to build its consumer installment portfolio. Changes in the Bank’s asset mix and continued loan growth required a corresponding increase in the Provision for Loan and Lease Losses, which increased expenses by $543,019 over the same quarter in the prior year but remained in line with management expectations.
