Indiana Business Bancorp Reports Third Quarter Results

Indiana Business Bancorp Reports Third Quarter Results

INDIANAPOLIS--(BUSINESS WIRE)-- Indiana Business Bancorp (OTCBB: IBBI), the holding company for Indiana Business Bank, announced results for the three and nine months ended September 30, 2012.


The company recorded a profit of $166,367 or $.11 per share and $549,559 or $.36 per share for the quarter and year to date, respectively. This compares to a profit of $135,136 or $.09 per share and $345,998 or $.23 per share for the same periods in 2011. The 2012 results include recognition of a tax benefit of $50,000 for the quarter and $150,000 for the year to date from the carryover of net operating losses. Net income for 2011 does not reflect a similar credit because the period ended December 31, 2011 was the first reporting period in which the company satisfied accounting rules for tax benefit recognition. Net income before the tax benefit was $116,367 and $399,559 for the three and nine months ended September 30, 2012.

Net interest income of $703,998 for the quarter was essentially flat relative to net interest income of $709,594 reported in the third quarter of 2011, due primarily to a smaller base of earning assets. The net interest margin improved, despite the lower level of earning assets, from 3.90% in 2011 to 4.56% in 2012 due to a 41 basis point reduction in the cost of funds and a 25 basis point improvement in the yield on earning assets. Net interest income of $2,162,515 for the nine months reflects a 3.78% increase over the same period in 2011.

Non-interest income of $61,673 for the quarter was lower than the $195,624 reported in the third quarter of 2011. Non-interest income in the third quarter of 2011 included gains received on the sale of two large SBA loans from a single borrower. Non-interest expense (generally salaries and other operating expenses) of $591,304 for the quarter was essentially flat relative to non-interest expense of $590,082 in the same period in 2011. Year to date non-interest expense of $1,756,820 was slightly lower than the $1,773,317 reported for the year to date period in 2011.

The provision for loan losses declined from $460,000 for the first nine months of 2011 to $238,000 during the comparable period in 2012. This is primarily the result of a smaller loan portfolio. At September 30, 2012, the allowance for loan losses was $1,512,852, which represented 2.92% of total loans. At September 30, 2011, the allowance for loan losses was $1,422,890, which represented 2.66% of loans.

The bank's regulatory capital ratios substantially exceeded the amounts needed to be considered "well capitalized" at September 30, 2012.

President and CEO James S. Young stated, "Economic uncertainties and competitive pressures present a challenging environment for originating quality small business relationships. However, we believe that by taking advantage of the interest rate environment to reduce funding costs, combined with disciplined expense control will position the bank to capitalize on the credit opportunities that meet our standards." Young added, "We will continue to pursue quality small business relationships, closely monitor our existing loan portfolio and maintain our low expense profile."
