Indiana Business Bancorp Reports Second Quarter Results and Cash Dividend

July 30, 2014

INDIANAPOLIS--(BUSINESS WIRE)-- Indiana Business Bancorp (OTCBB: IBBI), the holding company for Indiana Business Bank, announced results for the three and six months ended June 30, 2014 and its third quarterly cash dividend.

The company recorded a profit of $138,469 or $.09 per share and $255,760 or $.16 per share for the quarter and year to date, respectively. This compares to a profit of $203,522 or $.13 per share and $437,877 or $.29 per share for the same periods in 2013. The reduction in net income over the year periods is attributable to a decline in gains on loans sold.

Non-interest income for the second quarter of 2014 was $61,953 compared to $196,806 for the second quarter of 2013. Year to date 2014 non-interest income was $147,177 versus same period last year non-interest income of $318,488. This income category is driven primarily by gains on SBA guaranteed loans sold. 2013 was a record year for the bank’s non-interest income and 2014 is more reflective of historical performance. The origination and sale of SBA guaranteed loans continues to be a primary strategy of the bank’s business model.

Non-interest expense (generally salaries and other operating expenses) of $637,483 for the second quarter compares to non-interest expense of $655,939 during the prior year period. Year to date non-interest expense of $1,276,695 reflects a 2% increase from $1,251,968 in the first half of 2013. The increase in non-interest expense is the result of an increase in staffing, merit salary increases and increases in benefit costs.

The bank made no provision for loan losses in the second quarter of 2014. The provision for year to date 2014 is $85,000 compared to a first half 2013 provision expense of $120,000. The smaller provision reflects the continuing improvement in the overall credit environment and the successful resolution of two non-performing loans during the first half of 2014. The bank achieved net recoveries of $83,160 in the first half of 2014 and the allowance for loan losses at June 30, 2014 was $1,042,529 or 1.95% of total loans.

The bank’s Tier 1 Leverage ratio of 15.57% and Total Risk Based Capital ratio of 20.36% exceeded the levels needed to be considered “well capitalized” at June 30, 2014.

Dividend Declared

The Company also announced that the Board of Directors declared a dividend of $0.02 per share of common stock, payable on August 18, 2014 to shareholders of record at the close of business on August 8, 2014. The Company expects to continue paying cash dividends on a quarterly basis; however, the payment and amount of any future dividends will be determined by the Board of Directors on the basis of Company’s financial condition, earnings, regulatory constraints and other factors.

President and CEO James S. Young stated, “Our bank continues to make progress. It is especially encouraging that over the last 12 months we have been able to reduce non-performing assets 43% while growing the loan portfolio 7%. We are pleased once again to provide value to our shareholder base through a cash dividend.”
