First Bancorp of Indiana, Inc. Announces Financial Results

EVANSVILLE, IN -- (Marketwire) -- 01/18/13 -- First Bancorp of Indiana, Inc., (OTCBB: FBPI), the holding company for First Federal Savings Bank, reported earnings of $349,000 for the quarter ended December 31, 2012, compared to net income of $360,000 in the same quarter last year. The quarter-over-quarter change was attributed largely to higher overhead expenses. The increase in these expenses more than offset a 3.9% increase in net interest income associated with strong loan growth and lower funding costs.

The Company recognized earnings of $781,000 in the first half of fiscal 2013, up from $667,000 for the same period last year. The greater comparative year-to-date earnings were due in large part to a 17.8% increase in noninterest income, particularly gains from the sale of loans. Also, net interest income improved 3.0% as net loans grew 15.6% over the past six months and 27.7% from the same time last year. A new operations center, a new branch facility in Petersburg, Indiana, and additional staffing needs were the factors primarily responsible for the increased noninterest expenses.

At approximately 8.5%, First Federal's tier one capital ratio was well in excess of the five percent regulatory standard for "well-capitalized" financial institutions. The bank's other capital measurements also continue to comfortably exceed "well-capitalized" standards. In addition, First Bancorp paid a dividend of 15.5 cents per outstanding share for the 19th consecutive quarter.
