Item 8.01                                           Other Events


On December 19, 2018, First Internet Bancorp (the “Company”) issued a press release announcing that its Board of Directors approved a stock repurchase program authorizing the repurchase of up to $10.0 million of its outstanding common stock from time to time on the open market or in privately negotiated transactions. The stock repurchase program is scheduled to expire on December 31, 2019.


The stock repurchase program may be modified, suspended or discontinued at any time and does not commit the Company to repurchase shares of its common stock. The actual number and value of the shares to be purchased will depend on the performance of the Company’s stock price and other market conditions. Repurchases under the program may also be made pursuant to a Rule 10b5-1 plan, which, if adopted by the Company, would permit shares to be repurchased in accordance with pre-determined criteria when the Company might otherwise be prohibited from doing so under insider trading laws or because of self-imposed trading blackout periods.


A copy of the press release announcing the stock repurchase program filed as Exhibit 99.1 and the information set forth therein is incorporated herein by reference.

Exhibit 99.1



First Internet Bancorp Announces Stock Repurchase Program


Fishers, Indiana, December 19, 2018 — First Internet Bancorp (“First Internet” or the “Company”) (Nasdaq: INBK), the parent company of First Internet Bank (the “Bank”), announced today that its Board of Directors approved on December 18, 2018 a new stock repurchase program with an aggregate purchase price of up to $10 million. The stock repurchase program is scheduled to expire on December 31, 2019.


David Becker, Chairman, President and Chief Executive Officer, commented, “We are initiating this stock repurchase program, which demonstrates our commitment to enhancing shareholder value while also maintaining strong capital levels. Importantly, the program reflects our confidence in the long-term outlook for First Internet.”


The stock repurchase program permits First Internet to acquire shares of its common stock from time to time in the open market or in privately negotiated transactions at prices management considers to be attractive and in the best interest of First Internet and its shareholders. The stock repurchase program does not obligate the Company to repurchase shares of its common stock, and there is no assurance that it will do so.


Any repurchases are subject to compliance with applicable laws and regulations. Repurchases will be conducted in consideration of general market and economic conditions as well as the financial and regulatory condition of the Company and the Bank. The stock repurchase program may be modified, suspended or discontinued at any time at the discretion of the Board.
