Highlights for the fourth quarter and full year 2020 include:

  • Record annual net income and diluted earnings per share of $29.5 million and $2.99, respectively
  • Record quarterly net income of $11.1 million, compared to $8.4 million for the third quarter of 2020 and $7.1 million for the fourth quarter of 2019
  • Record quarterly diluted earnings per share of $1.12, up 30.2% over the third quarter of 2020 and 55.6% over the fourth quarter of 2019
  • Total quarterly revenue of $31.5 million, a 9.7% increase from the third quarter of 2020 and a 51.7% increase from the fourth quarter of 2019
  • Net interest margin and fully-taxable equivalent net interest margin increased 25 and 24 basis points (“bps”), respectively, from the third quarter, driven by a 22 bp decrease in the cost of interest-bearing deposits

First Internet Bancorp (the “Company”) (Nasdaq: INBK), the parent company of First Internet Bank (the “Bank”), announced today financial and operational results for the fourth quarter and full year ended December 31, 2020. Net income for the fourth quarter of 2020 was a record $11.1 million, or $1.12 diluted earnings per share. This compares to net income of $8.4 million, or $0.86 diluted earnings per share, for the third quarter of 2020, and net income of $7.1 million, or $0.72 diluted earnings per share, for the fourth quarter of 2019.

For the full year ended December 31, 2020, net income was a record $29.5 million and diluted earnings per share were a record $2.99, compared to net income of $25.2 million and diluted earnings per share of $2.51 for the year ended December 31, 2019. The full year 2020 results included a $2.1 million pre-tax write-down of commercial other real estate owned (“OREO”). Excluding this charge, adjusted net income for the year was $31.1 million, or $3.16 adjusted diluted earnings per share.

“We generated record net income for the fourth quarter and for all of 2020, closing out our 21st year of operation with substantial momentum despite the challenges created by the pandemic,” said David Becker, Chairman, President and Chief Executive Officer. “Over the course of the year, we produced robust revenue growth, with our direct-to-consumer mortgage business delivering its best year in our history. Our bankers met the surge in demand brought on by low interest rates, winning business with a demonstrated commitment to consistent, excellent service. Our expanding national SBA platform also steadily gained momentum and drove higher gain-on-sale revenue, increasingly contributing to our success throughout the year. Our pipelines in these key business lines remain solid heading into 2021.

“We also maintained strong credit quality even as we took extraordinary steps in the form of loan deferrals to help our clients weather the initial shocks of the public health crisis early in the year,” Becker added. “Well before the year ended, nearly all of our borrowers who needed payment relief resumed making payments, and our continued low level of nonperforming loans reflects this. We deepened ties with our clients through this experience and remain optimistic in our customers’ collective ability to fully bounce back and succeed in the year ahead.

Mr. Becker concluded, “And of course, I want to thank the entire First Internet team for their exceptional work in an unforgettable year. Their unrelenting efforts allowed us to deliver our best-ever earnings results in a very difficult time for our country. Our employees are at the heart of our strong culture and workplace environment and are the reason First Internet was recognized by The Indianapolis Star for the seventh consecutive year as one of the ‘Top Workplaces in Central Indiana’.”

Net Interest Income and Net Interest Margin

Net interest income for the fourth quarter of 2020 was $18.9 million, compared to $16.2 million for the third quarter of 2020, and $15.4 million for the fourth quarter of 2019. On a fully-taxable equivalent basis, net interest income for the fourth quarter was $20.3 million, compared to $17.7 million for the third quarter, and $16.9 million for the fourth quarter of 2019.

Total interest income for the fourth quarter of 2020 was $33.6 million, an increase of 2.7%, compared to the third quarter of 2020, and a decrease of 11.2% compared to the fourth quarter of 2019. On a fully-taxable equivalent basis, total interest income for the fourth quarter of 2020 was $35.0 million, an increase of 2.5% compared to the third quarter of 2020, and a decrease of 11.2% compared to the fourth quarter of 2019. The increase in total interest income compared to the third quarter of 2020 was driven primarily by an 8 bp increase in the yield on average interest-earning assets as the average balance of those assets was relatively stable between quarters. The yield on interest-earning assets for the fourth quarter of 2020 increased to 3.17% from 3.09% in the prior quarter due primarily to a shift in the earning asset mix and an increase in loan fee income, mostly related to prepayments. Average loan balances increased $73.2 million, or 2.4%, while the average balance of securities and other earning assets decreased $51.1 million and $19.6 million, respectively.

Total interest expense for the fourth quarter of 2020 was $14.8 million, a decrease of 10.5%, compared to the third quarter of 2020, and a decrease of 34.3% compared to the fourth quarter of 2019. The decrease in total interest expense compared to the linked quarter was due primarily to a 22 bp decline in the cost of interest-bearing deposits. The decrease in deposit costs reflects the continued decline in the rates paid on interest-bearing deposits as well as a shift in the deposit mix due to the growth in money market accounts and reduction in certificates and brokered deposits.

During the fourth quarter of 2020, the cost of money market deposits decreased by 27 bps while the average balance of these deposits grew $74.3 million, or 5.7%. Furthermore, the cost of certificates and brokered deposits decreased by 9 bps and average balances decreased $110.9 million, or 6.2%. During the fourth quarter, new certificates of deposit were originated at a weighted average cost of 50 bps while maturing deposits had a weighted average cost of 205 bps; a difference of 155 bps.

Net interest margin (“NIM”) improved to 1.78% for the fourth quarter of 2020, up from 1.53% for the third quarter of 2020 and 1.51% in the fourth quarter of 2019. Fully-taxable equivalent NIM (“FTE NIM”) increased by 24 bps to 1.91% for the fourth quarter of 2020, up from 1.67% for both the third quarter of 2020 and the fourth quarter of 2019. The increases in NIM and FTE NIM compared to the linked quarter were driven primarily by a combination of lower interest-bearing deposit costs and higher average loan yields, which more than offset the impact of lower yields on securities and the continued effect of elevated cash balances.

Noninterest Income

Noninterest income for the fourth quarter of 2020 was $12.7 million, compared to $12.5 million for the third quarter of 2020 and $5.4 million for the fourth quarter of 2019. The modest increase compared to the linked quarter was driven primarily by an increase in gain on sale of loans, partially offset by lower revenues from mortgage banking activities. Gain on sale of loans totaled $3.7 million for the quarter, increasing $1.7 million compared to the third quarter of 2020 driven by a higher amount of U.S. Small Business Administration (“SBA”) 7(a) guaranteed loan sales in the quarter as well as a $0.2 million gain on the sale of $7.4 million of public finance loans. Mortgage banking revenue totaled $8.0 million for the fourth quarter of 2020, down $1.6 million from the record prior quarter due to a decrease in interest rate lock volume, which was partially offset by an increase in margins. On a historical basis, however, mortgage banking revenue remained strong as the low interest rate environment continued to drive purchase and refinance activity.

Noninterest Expense

Noninterest expense for the fourth quarter of 2020 was $14.5 million, compared to $16.4 million for the third quarter of 2020 and $12.6 million for the fourth quarter of 2019. The third quarter of 2020 included a $2.1 million write-down of two legacy commercial OREO properties. Excluding the impact of that write-down, noninterest expense increased slightly on a linked-quarter basis, driven primarily by a $0.2 million increase in loan expenses and a $0.2 million increase consulting and professional fees, but was partially offset by a $0.4 million decrease in salaries and employee benefits. The lower salaries and employee benefits expense was due mainly to the timing of incentive compensation in the Company’s small business lending division and lower incentive compensation in the mortgage banking division due to lower mortgage production quarter-over-quarter.

Income Taxes

The Company reported an income tax expense of $3.1 million for the fourth quarter of 2020 and an effective tax rate of 21.6%, compared to income tax expense of $1.4 million and an effective tax rate of 14.2% for the third quarter of 2020 and an income tax expense of $0.6 million and an effective tax rate of 7.8% for the fourth quarter of 2019. The increase in income taxes during the quarter was primarily due to the increase in pre-tax earnings driven by a higher proportion of taxable revenue and the timing of pre-tax earnings as performance significantly improved during the second half of 2020.

Loans and Credit Quality

Total loans as of December 31, 2020 were $3.1 billion, an increase of $46.3 million, or 1.5%, compared to September 30, 2020, and an increase of $95.7 million, or 3.2%, compared to December 31, 2019. Total commercial loan balances were $2.5 billion as of December 31, 2020, an increase of $73.1 million, or 3.0%, compared to September 30, 2020 and an increase of $229.1 million, or 10.0%, compared to December 31, 2019. Compared to the linked quarter, the growth in commercial loan balances was driven largely by production in healthcare finance and construction lending, which was partially offset by a decrease in single tenant lease financing balances.

Total consumer loan balances were $482.3 million as of December 31, 2020, a decrease of $25.4 million, or 5.0%, compared to September 30, 2020 and a decrease of $151.2 million, or 23.9%, compared to December 31, 2019. The decline in consumer loan balances from September 30, 2020 was due primarily to increased prepayment activity in the residential mortgage portfolio and seasonally lower production in the RV and trailer portfolios.

Total delinquencies 30 days or more past due decreased to 0.17% of total loans as of December 31, 2020, down from 0.22% as of September 30, 2020 and down from 0.24% as of December 31, 2019. Overall credit quality remained relatively stable as nonperforming loans to total loans was 0.33% as of December 31, 2020, compared to 0.32% at September 30, 2020 and 0.23% as of December 31, 2019.

The allowance for loan losses as a percentage of total loans was 0.96% as of December 31, 2020, or 0.98% when excluding SBA Paycheck Protection Program (“PPP”) loans, compared to 0.89% and 0.91%, respectively, as of September 30, 2020 and 0.74% as of December 31, 2019. During the quarter, the Company continued to make additional adjustments to qualitative factors in its allowance model to reflect the continued economic uncertainty resulting from the COVID-19 pandemic as well as increased the specific reserve by $1.1 million on an existing nonperforming single tenant lease financing relationship. As a result, both the amount of the allowance for loan losses and the allowance as a percentage of total loans increased compared to September 30, 2020.

Net charge-offs of $0.3 million were recognized during the fourth quarter of 2020, resulting in net charge-offs to average loans of 0.04%, compared to 0.01% for the third quarter and 0.04% for the fourth quarter of 2019. The provision for loan losses in the fourth quarter was $2.9 million, compared to $2.5 million for the third quarter and $0.5 million for the fourth quarter of 2019.

Capital

As of December 31, 2020, total shareholders’ equity was $330.9 million, an increase of $12.8 million, or 4.0%, compared to September 30, 2020, due primarily to the net income earned during the quarter and a decrease in accumulated other comprehensive loss. Book value per common share increased to $33.77 as of December 30, 2020, up from $32.46 as of September 30, 2020 and $31.30 as of December 31, 2019. Tangible book value per share increased to $33.29, up from $31.98 and $30.82, each as of the same reference dates.

Forward-looking statements are not a guarantee of future performance or results, are based on information available at the time the statements are made and involve known and unknown risks, uncertainties and other factors that could cause actual results to differ materially from the information in the forward-looking statements. The COVID-19 pandemic continues to impact general business and economic conditions as well as our customers, counterparties, employees, and third-party service providers. Continued uncertainty in market conditions could adversely affect our revenues and the values of our assets and liabilities, reduce the availability of funding, lead to a tightening of credit and further increase stock price volatility. In addition, changes to statutes, regulations, or regulatory policies or practices as a result of, or in response to COVID-19, could affect us in substantial and unpredictable ways. The ultimate magnitude and duration of the pandemic is still unknown at this time, therefore, the extent of the impact on our business, financial position, results of operations, liquidity and prospects remains uncertain. Other factors that may cause such differences include: failures or breaches of or interruptions in the communications and information systems on which we rely to conduct our business; failure of our plans to grow our commercial real estate, commercial and industrial, public finance, SBA and healthcare finance loan portfolios; competition with national, regional and community financial institutions; the loss of any key members of senior management; fluctuations in interest rates; general economic conditions; risks relating to the regulation of financial institutions; and other factors identified in reports we file with the U.S. Securities and Exchange Commission. All statements in this press release, including forward-looking statements, speak only as of the date they are made, and the Company undertakes no obligation to update any statement in light of new information or future events.

Non-GAAP Financial Measures

This press release contains financial information determined by methods other than in accordance with U.S. generally accepted accounting principles (“GAAP”). Non-GAAP financial measures, specifically tangible common equity, tangible assets, tangible book value per common share, tangible common equity to tangible assets, average tangible common equity, return on average tangible common equity, total interest income – FTE, net interest income – FTE, net interest margin – FTE, allowance for loan losses to loans, excluding PPP loans, adjusted income before income taxes, adjusted income tax provision, adjusted net income, adjusted diluted earnings per share, adjusted return on average assets, adjusted return on average shareholders’ equity, adjusted return on average tangible common equity and adjusted effective income tax rate are used by the Company’s management to measure the strength of its capital and analyze profitability, including its ability to generate earnings on tangible capital invested by its shareholders. Although management believes these non-GAAP measures are useful to investors by providing a greater understanding of its business, they should not be considered a substitute for financial measures determined in accordance with GAAP, nor are they necessarily comparable to non-GAAP performance measures that may be presented by other companies. Reconciliations of these non-GAAP financial measures to the most directly comparable GAAP financial measures are included in the table at the end of this release under the caption “Reconciliation of Non-GAAP Financial Measures.”
