First Internet Bank of Indiana today announced its third consecutive quarter of profitability. First IB’s earnings reflect aggressive initiatives to increase core deposits and maintain the quality and liquidity of the balance sheet.

First IB’s net income for the first nine months of 2001 was $1,290,585, compared to a net loss of $3,744,929 in the comparable period in 2000. Net interest income rose by 48 percent to $4,169,280, while non-interest expense fell 46 percent to $3,361,872.

Net income for the quarter ended September 30, 2001, was $990,685, an improvement of $839,425 over the previous quarter. Net interest income rose by 6 percent during the quarter while non-interest expense fell 5 percent, demonstrating the bank’s continued efforts to manage expenses. The bank’s profit for the quarter included a tax benefit of $640,962.

Total assets on September 30, 2001, were $246,629,039, a 26 percent increase over the previous year.

“Our strong performance is a product of our efforts to continue our strong customer focus, control expenses, and strengthen the quality of our balance sheet by bringing in core deposits and re-investing in high quality assets,” said David B. Becker, Chairman and CEO of First IB. “The fact that we are profitable in the face of a faltering economy and ongoing interest rate reductions clearly demonstrates the soundness of our business strategy.”

Seamless Experience - John, Arkansas

“I found First IB online. I was a little skeptical at first, but I couldn't have been more wrong! We were moving from MI to AR, working with a different realtor on each end, and First IB made the purchase of our new home seamless. The...mortgage we received is piece of mind for the future and we couldn't be more satisfied with the service... “

Best Lender Experience - Ryan, Arizona

“This was the first time I've used an online lender and I would definitely use First IB again...The local lenders warned that I wouldn't get personal service using an online lender and warned me against it. I'm glad I ignored them because my experience was one of the best I've had with a lender. I wouldn't hesitate to use this lender again!“
