Idaho First Bank Announces 1st Quarter 2021 Results

/EIN News/ -- MCCALL, Idaho, April 29, 2021 (GLOBE NEWSWIRE) -- Today Idaho First Bank (the ‘Bank’) (OTC: IDFB) announced unaudited financial results for the first quarter of 2021, and the planned retirement of CEO Greg Lovell. Lovell founded the bank in 2005, and his retirement is part of a detailed executive succession plan. Outgoing CEO Lovell stated, “The strong Q1 financial performance was driven by earnings generated through our participation in the Paycheck Protection Program (PPP) under the CARES Act, and strong growth in earning assets.” He further indicated, “The year-over-year growth of our balance sheet reflects the financial strength of our markets, our expansion into 3 new markets over the last 18 months, and the great work our talented team does by putting People First.”

Chairman Mark Miller commented, “We have experienced strong Q1 growth in both loan and deposit balances which is a result of the board’s decision to support expanding our operations into Ketchum and Nampa, ID, and Bend, OR over the last 18 months.”

The Bank recognized Net Income After Tax of $1.9 million for the quarter ending March 31, 2021. This is a quarterly profit record for the bank. Financial results for the quarter continued to be influenced by the Bank’s PPP loan portfolio; PPP loans averaged $514 million in Q1, contributing $3.6 million to total gross interest income of $6.6 million. Incoming CEO Todd Cooper stated, “We are proud of the support we provided business owners through our participation in the PPP section of the CARES act. The impact to businesses and communities was significant, and now we are seeing the financial impact for the bank.”

Total assets finished the quarter at $820 million. Non-PPP loans ended at $300 million, an increase of $29 million, or 11%, from Q4 2020. March quarter-end deposit balances of $390 million increased $42 million, or 12% from Q4 2020, with noninterest bearing deposits growing 11%.

Credit quality and portfolio performance both remain very strong. In response to the strong rate of loan growth, the allowance for loan loss was increased to $3.62 million or 1.22% of loans, less held for sale and 100% government guaranteed loans at March 31, 2021. The bank funded $500,000 in provision to the allowance for loan loss in the first quarter. Shannon Stoeger, Chief Credit Officer, commented, “Our portfolio quality remains historically strong, we continue to proactively monitor our borrowing relationships, and we will continue to ensure the allowance for loan losses is adequately funded.”

Shareholders’ equity at March 31, 2021 was $35.8 million, an increase of $2.0 million from year-end 2020 as a result of profitable operations. Book value per share increased to $7.20 per share compared with $6.81 at year-end 2020.
