EVANSVILLE, Ind. - April 19, 2019 - PRLog -- First Bancorp of Indiana, Inc., (OTCBB:FBPI), the holding company for First Federal Savings Bank, reported earnings of $509,000 for the quarter ended March 31, 2019, compared to net income of $335,000 in the same quarter last year.  The quarter-over-quarter change was largely attributed to a 3.8% improvement in net interest income together with a 5.2% noninterest expense reduction.  Compensation and benefits accounted for the majority of the expense savings.

The Company recognized net income of $1.7 million in the first nine months of fiscal 2019, a $787,000 increase from the same period last year.  Net loan growth of $10.5 million and improved loan yields over the past twelve months resulted in a 12.4% improvement in total interest income.  At the same time, total interest expenses jumped 36.4% as competition for deposits, particularly certificates of deposit, intensified.  Personnel costs and professional fees were the greatest contributors to the 4.8% decrease in noninterest expenses between the comparative nine-month periods.

At approximately 8.6%, First Federal's tier one leverage ratio for the quarter ended March 31, 2019, 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 has paid a dividend of 15.5 cents per outstanding share for 44 consecutive quarters.
