INDIANAPOLIS, Oct. 28, 2020 (GLOBE NEWSWIRE) -- Today the Board of Directors of the Federal Home Loan Bank of Indianapolis ("FHLBank Indianapolis" or "Bank") declared its third quarter 2020 dividends for the period ended September 25, 2020 on Class B-1 and Class B-2 capital stock at annualized rates of 3.00% and 2.40%, respectively.
As a result of implementing a revised capital plan effective September 26, 20201, the Board also declared dividends for the remaining five-day period of the quarter on Class B-2 activity-based stock at an annualized rate of 3.00% and Class B-1 non-activity-based stock at an annualized rate of 3.00%. Given the short period of time that the revised capital plan was in effect during the quarter, the Board declared the same rate on the Class B-1 stock as on the Class B-2 stock.
The dividends will be paid in cash on October 29, 2020.
"FHLBank Indianapolis is pleased to offer a competitive dividend during an ongoing pandemic," Cindy Konich, President and CEO, stated. "During the third quarter, we also introduced our revised capital plan, which provides members with simplified membership-stock calculations and additional activity-stock flexibility." Learn more about the capital plan at www.fhlbi.com.
Net income for the third quarter of 2020 was $15 million, a decrease of $11 million compared to the corresponding quarter in the prior year due substantially to lower net earnings on trading securities2 and accelerated amortization of purchase premium resulting from higher prepayments on mortgage loans, both resulting from the decline in market interest rates. These decreases were partially offset by additional net interest income3 resulting from the Bank's growth in average asset balances and by lower net losses on qualifying fair-value hedging relationships.
1 The prior capital plan required that dividends on Class B-2 stock be calculated as 80% of the dividends declared on Class B-1 stock, while the revised capital plan permits the dividends on Class B-2 (activity-based) stock to be greater than or equal to the dividends on Class B-1 (non-activity-based) stock.
2 The Bank uses U.S. Treasury securities as part of its liquidity portfolio. Such securities are classified as trading securities, on which changes in fair value are recorded in other income. Changes in the estimated fair value of the associated economic hedging instruments are also recorded in other income.
3 FHLBank Indianapolis earns interest income on advances to and mortgage loans purchased from its Michigan and Indiana member financial institutions, as well as on long- and short-term investments. Net interest income is primarily determined by the spread between the interest earned on those assets and the interest cost of funding with consolidated obligations.
Net income for the nine months ended September 30, 2020 was $58 million, a decrease of $36 million compared to the corresponding period in the prior year due substantially to accelerated amortization of purchase premium resulting from higher prepayments on mortgage loans and lower net earnings on trading securities, both resulting from the decline in market interest rates. These decreases were partially offset by additional net interest income resulting from the Bank's growth in average asset balances.
Hedging gains (losses) on qualifying fair-value hedging relationships4 are reported in net interest income. As a result, net interest income for the three and nine months ended September 30, 2020 included net hedging losses of $2 million and $25 million, respectively, compared to net hedging losses for the three and nine months ended September 30, 2019 of $9 million and $31 million, respectively. In general, the Bank holds the derivatives and associated hedged items to the maturity, call, or put date. As a result, we expect that nearly all of the gains and losses on these financial instruments will reverse over the remaining contractual terms of the hedged items.
Affordable Housing Program Allocation 5
For the nine months ended September 30, 2020, FHLBank Indianapolis allocated $7 million to its Affordable Housing Program ("AHP"), which provides grant funding to support housing for low- and moderate-income families in Michigan and Indiana. Full year 2020 AHP allocations will be available to the Bank's members in 2021 to help address their communities' affordable housing needs, including construction, rehabilitation, accessibility improvements and homebuyer down-payment assistance.

4 The Bank uses interest-rate swaps to hedge the risk of changes in the fair value of certain of its advances, available-for-sale securities and consolidated obligations. These derivatives are designated as fair-value hedges. Changes in the estimated fair value of the derivative and, to the extent these relationships qualify for hedge accounting, changes in the fair value of the hedged item that are attributable to the hedged risk are recorded in earnings.
5 Each year Federal Home Loan Banks ("FHLBanks") allocate to the AHP 10% of earnings, which is defined as income before assessments, plus interest expense on mandatorily redeemable capital stock.
Balance Sheet Highlights
Total assets at September 30, 2020 were $66.3 billion, a net decrease of $1.2 billion, or 2%, from December 31, 2019, driven by net decreases in mortgage loans held for portfolio and advances to members, partially offset by an increase in available-for-sale securities.
Advances outstanding at September 30, 2020, at carrying value, totaled $31.3 billion, a net decrease of $1.2 billion, or 4%, from December 31, 2019. The par value of advances outstanding decreased by 6%, which included a net decrease in short-term advances of 23% and a net increase in long-term advances of 4%.
The par value of advances to depository institutions - comprising commercial banks, savings institutions and credit unions - and insurance companies decreased by 1% and 11%, respectively.

Mortgage loans held for portfolio at September 30, 2020 totaled $9.2 billion, a net decrease of $1.6 billion, or 15%, from December 31, 2019, as principal repayments by borrowers outpaced the Bank's purchases during the period.

Consolidated Obligations 9
FHLBank Indianapolis' consolidated obligations outstanding at September 30, 2020 totaled $60.6 billion, a net decrease of $1.8 billion, or 3%, from December 31, 2019. Such decrease reflected the decrease in the Bank's assets.
6 Advances are secured loans that FHLBank Indianapolis provides to its member institutions.
7 FHLBank Indianapolis purchases mortgage loans from its members to support its housing mission, provide an additional source of liquidity to its members, and diversify its investments.
8 The Bank's liquidity portfolio consists of cash, interest-bearing deposits, securities purchased under agreements to resell, federal funds sold and U.S. Treasury securities.
9 The primary source of funds for FHLBank Indianapolis, and for the other FHLBanks, is the sale of FHLBanks' consolidated obligations in the capital markets. FHLBank Indianapolis is the primary obligor for the payment of the principal and interest on the consolidated obligations issued on its behalf; additionally, it is jointly and severally liable with each of the other FHLBanks for all of the FHLBanks' consolidated obligations outstanding.
Total capital at September 30, 2020 was $3.4 billion, a net increase of $265 million, or 8%, from December 31, 2019. Such increase was substantially due to proceeds from the issuance of capital stock.
