IF Bancorp, Inc. (NASDAQ: IROQ) (the "Company") the holding company for Iroquois Federal Savings and Loan Association (the "Association"), announced unaudited net income of $1.5 million, or $0.48 per basic and diluted share, for the three months ended December 31, 2020, compared to net income of $964,000, or $0.32 per basic share and $0.31 per diluted share, for the three months ended December 31, 2019.

For the three months ended December 31, 2020, net interest income was $5.1 million compared to $4.3 million for the three months ended December 31, 2019. We recorded a credit for loan losses of $(49,000) for the three months ended December 31, 2020, compared to a credit for loan losses of $(30,000) for the three months ended December 31, 2019. Interest income decreased to $6.2 million for the three months ended December 31, 2020, from $6.8 million for the three months ended December 31, 2019. Interest expense decreased to $1.2 million for the three months ended December 31, 2020, from $2.4 million for the three months ended December 31, 2019. Non-interest income increased to $1.5 million for the three months ended December 31, 2020, from $1.2 million for the three months ended December 31, 2019. Non-interest expense increased to $4.5 million for the three months ended December 31, 2020, from $4.3 million for the three months ended December 31, 2019. Provision for income tax increased to $571,000 for the three months ended December 31, 2020, from $372,000 for the three months ended December 31, 2019.

The Company announced unaudited net income of $2.8 million, or $0.92 per basic share and $0.91 per diluted share for the six months ended December 31, 2020, compared to $2.1 million, or $0.65 per basic share and $0.64 per diluted share for the six months ended December 31, 2019. For the six months ended December 31, 2020, net interest income was $9.9 million compared to $8.9 million for the six months ended December 31, 2019. We recorded a provision for loan losses of $266,000 for the six months ended December 31, 2020, compared to a credit for loan losses of $(84,000) for the six months ended December 31, 2019. This increase was primarily the result of an increase in risk associated with outstanding loans due to a change in portfolio mix and, to a lesser extent, additional reserves for all loans that remain under temporary COVID-19 modifications. The increase in reserves was partially offset by the addition of SBA Paycheck Protection Program (PPP) loans that do not require a reserve since they are 100% guaranteed by the U.S. government. While we have closed 305 SBA PPP loans representing $26.3 million in funding, after SBA forgiveness, we have 191 loans totaling $17.4 million remaining in our portfolio at December 31, 2020,

Interest income decreased to $12.5 million for the six months ended December 31, 2020, from $13.8 million for the six months ended December 31, 2019. Interest expense decreased to $2.6 million for the six months ended December 31, 2020 from $4.9 million for the six months ended December 31, 2019. Our interest income could be reduced in the future due to COVID-19. In keeping with guidance from our regulators, we are executing payment deferrals for our lending clients that are adversely affected by the pandemic. At December 31, 2020, we have 169 loans with current balances of $85.7 million that have received COVID-19 modifications. These modifications allow borrowers to pay interest only for up to six months. As of December 31, 2020, 148 of these loans totaling $58.5 million have returned to principal and interest payments, leaving 21 loans for $27.2 million still under temporary modifications.

Non-interest income increased to $3.2 million for the six months ended December 31, 2020, from $2.3 million for the six months ended December 31, 2019. The increase in non-interest income was mostly due to an increase in gain on sale of loans as a result of a significant increase in refinance activity stimulated by a low interest environment, and also by an increase in gain on sale of available-for-sale securities. Non-interest expense increased to $9.0 million for the six months ended December 31, 2020 from $8.5 million for the six months ended December 31, 2019. Provision for income tax increased to $1.1 million for the six months ended December 31, 2020, from $787,000 for the six months ended December 31, 2019.

Total assets at December 31, 2020 were $713.4 million compared to $735.5 million at June 30, 2020. Cash and cash equivalents decreased to $7.7 million at December 31, 2020, from $33.5 million at June 30, 2020. Investment securities increased to $167.6 million at December 31, 2020, from $162.4 million at June 30, 2020. Net loans receivable decreased to $506.8 million at December 31, 2020, from $509.8 million at June 30, 2020. Deposits decreased to $587.4 million at December 31, 2020, from $601.7 million at June 30, 2020. Total borrowings, including repurchase agreements, decreased to $31.6 million at December 31, 2020 from $41.2 million at June 30, 2020. Stockholders’ equity increased to $84.9 million at December 31, 2020 from $82.6 million at June 30, 2020. Equity increased due to net income of $2.8 million, and ESOP and stock equity plan activity of $284,000, partially offset by a decrease of $270,000 in accumulated other comprehensive income, net of tax, and the payment of approximately $454,000 in dividends to our shareholders.
