Press Release

IF Bancorp, Inc. Announces Results for Fourth Quarter and Fiscal Year Ended June 30, 2019

Company Release - 8/29/2019 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 $3.6 million, or $1.02 per basic share and $1.01 per diluted share for the fiscal year ended June 30, 2019, compared to $1.7 million, or $0.47 per basic and diluted share for the fiscal year ended June 30, 2018. The Company also announced net income of $1.0 million, or $0.31 per basic share and $0.30 per diluted share for the three months ended June 30, 2019, compared to $497,000, or $0.14 per basic and diluted share for the three months ended June 30, 2018.

Net income increased $1.8 million, or 104.7%, to $3.6 million for the year ended June 30, 2019, from $1.7 million for the year ended June 30, 2018. 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. 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, 2019, net interest income was $17.9 million, compared to $17.5 million for the year ended June 30, 2018. The provision for loan losses decreased to $407,000 for the year ended June 30, 2019, from $777,000 for the year ended June 30, 2018. Interest income increased to $26.7 million for the year ended June 30, 2019, from $22.8 million for the year ended June 30, 2018. Interest expense increased to $8.9 million for the year ended June 30, 2019, from $5.3 million for the year ended June 30, 2018. Non-interest income increased to $4.2 million for the year ended June 30, 2019, from $4.1 million for the year ended June 30, 2018. Non-interest expense increased to $16.8 million for the year ended June 30, 2019, from $16.4 million for the year ended June 30, 2018. For the year ended June 30, 2019, income tax expense totaled $1.3 million compared to $2.7 million for the year ended June 30, 2018. 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, 2019 were $723.9 million compared to $638.9 million at June 30, 2018. Cash and cash equivalents increased to $59.6 million at June 30, 2019, from $4.8 million at June 30, 2018. This increase was the result of approximately $55.3 million in deposits received from a public entity that collects real estate taxes in two installments, due June and September. These deposits are temporary in nature as distributions are made in early July and September. Investment securities increased to $146.3 million at June 30, 2019, from $126.0 million at June 30, 2018. Net loans receivable increased to $487.8 million at June 30, 2019, from $476.5 million at June 30, 2018. Deposits increased to $607.0 million at June 30, 2019, from $480.4 million at June 30, 2018. In addition to the temporary non-interest bearing public fund accounts, we had increases of approximately $61.5 million in certificates of deposit, $3.8 million in non-interest bearing demand accounts and $5.2 million in brokered certificates of deposit. Total borrowings, including repurchase agreements, decreased to $26.0 million at June 30, 2019 from $69.8 million at June 30, 2018 as the new deposit funds were used to reduce our borrowing from the Federal Home Loan Bank of Chicago. Stockholders’ equity increased to $82.5 million at June 30, 2018 from $81.7 million at June 30, 2018.

The allowance for loan losses increased $383,000 to $6.3 million at June 30, 2019, from $5.9 million at June 30, 2018. The increase was the result of a provision for loan losses of $407,000, partially offset by net charge-offs of $24,000, and was necessary to bring the allowance for loan losses to a level that reflects management’s estimate of the potential loss in the Company’s loan portfolio at June 30, 2019.

As announced on August 14, 2019, IF Bancorp, Inc. will pay a cash dividend of $0.15 per common share on or about October 18, 2019, to stockholders of record as of the close of business on September 23, 2019. This dividend reflects a 20% increase over our last dividend paid in April 2019.
