Business Wire

INDIANAPOLIS--(BUSINESS WIRE)--

Indiana Business Bancorp (OTC BB: IBBI.OB), the holding company for Indiana Business Bank, announced results for the quarter and year ended December 31, 2013.

Financial Highlights

The Company recorded a profit of $89,762 or $0.06 per share and $635,269 or $0.42 per share for the quarter and year ended December 31, 2013. Net income was $340,724 or $0.23 per share and $862,149 or $0.57 per share in the year earlier periods, respectively. Net income in both years includes recognition of a tax benefit in the amount of $100,000 for the quarter and $250,000 for the year from the carryover of net operating losses.

Non-interest income for the year was $389,347, compared to $397,808 in 2012. Gains on sale of SBA loans totaled $344,189 in 2013 and $293,718 in 2012. Non-interest income for 2013 included a $61,642 loss on sale of Other Real Estate Owned (“OREO”), and a $71,000 write-down on OREO. Non-interest income in 2012 included a $37,227 write-down on OREO.

Non-interest expense (generally salaries and other operating expenses) increased by 4.9% compared to the previous year. Significant among the year over year change in Non-interest expense were a $137,265 increase in Salaries & Benefits and an $88,414 Property tax expense associated with a property that was in foreclosure during the fourth quarter. On January 30, 2014, the property was sold at sheriff’s sale and the Company expects to recover all of the outstanding principal, accrued interest, and expenses associated with this loan from the net proceeds.

The provision for loan loss declined from $278,000 during 2012 to $240,000 during 2013. The reduced provision expense for the year reflects the improved credit profile of the loan portfolio. At December 31, 2013, the allowance for loan losses was $874,370, which represented 1.64% of total loans.

During 2013 the Company sold its sole remaining OREO property. Non-accrual loans and renegotiated loans totaled $4,646,728 at December 31, 2013.

President and CEO, James S. Young stated, “We are pleased with the 5% growth in gross loans achieved during the fourth quarter. We believe that the steps taken during 2013 to reduce problem assets and grow the loan portfolio have positioned the Bank to capitalize on the talents of its business development personnel in 2014.”

At December 31, 2013, the Company’s and the Bank’s capital exceeded all regulatory required minimums and the Bank was considered “well capitalized.”

Dividend Declared

The Company also announced that, on January 23, 2014, the Board of Directors declared a dividend of $0.06 per share of common stock, payable on February 18, 2014, to shareholders of record at the close of business on February 10, 2014. The dividend is the first dividend in the Company’s history. 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 the Company’s financial condition, earnings, regulatory constraints and other factors.

Mr. Young stated, “The Board of Directors and management believe the institution of quarterly cash dividends will enhance shareholder value and demonstrate our commitment to and confidence in our future prospects.”
