IF Bancorp, Inc. Announces Results for Fourth Quarter and Fiscal Year Ended June 30, 2018

Company Release - 8/29/2018 4:15 PM ET

WATSEKA, Ill.--(BUSINESS WIRE)-- IF Bancorp, Inc. (NASDAQ: IROQ) (the “Company”) the holding company for Iroquois Federal Savings and Loan Association (the “Association”), announced net income of $1.7 million, or $0.47 per basic and diluted share for the fiscal year ended June 30, 2018, compared to $3.9 million, or $1.06 per basic and diluted share for the fiscal year ended June 30, 2017. The Company also announced net income of $497,000, or $0.14 per basic and diluted share for the three months ended June 30, 2018, compared to $602,000, or $0.16 per basic and diluted share for the three months ended June 30, 2017.

Net income for the year ended June 30, 2018, was negatively impacted by a nonrecurring $1.3 million income tax expense due to a downward adjustment to our net deferred tax assets (“DTA”) related to the Tax Cuts and Jobs Act (the “Tax Act”), which was enacted on December 22, 2017. The Tax Act provided for a reduction in the corporate income tax rate from 35% to 21% effective January 1, 2018, which resulted in the downward adjustment to our DTA. Excluding the $1.3 million impact of the adjustment to the DTA, the Company’s net income for the year ended June 30, 2018, would have been $3.1 million, or a decrease of $863,000 from the year ended June 30, 2017. Management believes that presenting net income on a non-GAAP basis excluding the impact of the adjustment to the DTA in the 2018 period provides useful information for evaluating the Company’s operating results and any related trends that may be affecting the Company’s business. These disclosures should not be viewed as a substitute for operating results determined in accordance with GAAP.

For the year ended June 30, 2018, net interest income was $17.5 million, compared to $17.7 million for the year ended June 30, 2017. The provision for loan losses decreased to $777,000 for the year ended June 30, 2018, from $1.7 million for the year ended June 30, 2017. Interest income increased to $22.8 million for the year ended June 30, 2018, from $21.3 million for the year ended June 30, 2017. Interest expense increased to $5.3 million for the year ended June 30, 2018, from $3.6 million for the year ended June 30, 2017. Non-interest income decreased to $4.1 million for the year ended June 30, 2018, from $4.7 million for the year ended June 30, 2017. Non-interest expense increased $1.8 million to $16.4 million for the year ended June 30, 2018, from $14.5 million for the year ended June 30, 2017. The increase in non-interest expense was primarily due to a $1.4 million increase in other non-interest expense as a result of the accrual of real estate taxes and closing costs on a large credit in bankruptcy. For the year ended June 30, 2018, income tax expense totaled $2.7 million compared to $2.3 million for the year ended June 30, 2017. Excluding the $1.3 million DTA tax adjustment as a result of the Tax Act, income tax expense for the year ended June 30, 2018 was approximately $1.4 million.

Total assets at June 30, 2018 were $638.9 million compared to $585.5 million at June 30, 2017. Cash and cash equivalents decreased to $4.7 million at June 30, 2018, from $7.8 million at June 30, 2017. Investment securities increased to $126.0 million at June 30, 2018, from $111.6 million at June 30, 2017. Net loans receivable increased to $476.5 million at June 30, 2018, from $440.3 million at June 30, 2017. Deposits increased to $480.4 million at June 30, 2018, from $439.1 million at June 30, 2017. Total borrowings, including repurchase agreements, increased to $69.8 million at June 30, 2018 from $55.7 million at June 30, 2017. Stockholders’ equity decreased to $81.7 million at June 30, 2018 from $84.0 million at June 30, 2017.

The allowance for loan losses decreased $890,000 to $5.9 million at June 30, 2018, from $6.8 million at June 30, 2017. The decrease was the result of net charge-offs of $1.7 million, partially offset by an increase in outstanding loans and the corresponding provision expense, and was necessary to bring the allowance for loan losses to a level that reflects management’s estimate of the probable loss in the Company’s loan portfolio at June 30, 2018.

As announced on August 15, 2018, IF Bancorp, Inc. will pay a cash dividend of $0.125 per common share on or about October 19, 2018, to stockholders of record as of the close of business on September 24, 2018. This dividend reflects a 25% increase over our last dividend paid in April 2018.
