"We are pleased to report record earnings for the seventh consecutive quarter and continued best-in-class earnings per share growth driven by margin expansion, asset growth and steady non-interest income. Our single family, multifamily and commercial lending groups delivered healthy origination volumes this quarter and we ended the quarter with loan pipelines that are at or near record levels. Although mortgage banking revenue declined this quarter, our non-interest income held up well demonstrating the diversity and resiliency of our sources of non-interest income. We have an exciting pipeline of new prepaid sponsorship opportunities under contract or in advanced discussions. We recently crossed over the half a billion dollar mark in business deposits and, this quarter we completed our acquisition of approximately $173 million in deposits from Principal Bank including $142 million in checking, savings and money market accounts and $31 million in time deposit accounts, further bolstering our growing deposit base," stated Mr. Greg Garrabrants, President and Chief Executive Officer. "Diluted earnings per share for the quarter ended September 30, 2013 grew 26.9% compared to the first fiscal quarter last year. The Company's net interest margin increased 16 bps to 3.86% for the quarter ended September 30, 2013 over the prior year first quarter. Our strong loan quality continued its impressive improvement with annualized net charge offs to average loans declining to 2 basis points for the first quarter of fiscal 2014, down from 42 basis points for the first quarter of fiscal 2013. Non-performing assets to total assets also continued to decrease, coming from 82 basis points at September 30, 2012 down to 55 basis points at September 30, 2013."

First Quarter Fiscal 2014 Income Statement Summary

During the quarter ended September 30, 2013, BofI earned $12.2 million or $0.85 per diluted share compared to $9.0 million, or $0.67 per diluted share for the quarter ended September 30, 2012. Net interest income increased $5.6 million or 25.0% for the quarter ended September 30, 2013 compared to September 30, 2012. Average earning assets grew year over year by $483.7 million and our net interest margin was 3.86% compared to 3.70% for the quarters ended September 30, 2013 and 2012, respectively.

Loan loss provision was $0.5 million for the quarter ended September 30, 2013 as compared to $2.6 million for the quarter ended September 30, 2012. The decrease was the result of significantly lower charge-offs which decreased by approximately $1.9 million this quarter compared to the first quarter of fiscal 2013. The benefit of the decrease in charge-offs was partially offset by additional provisions needed for growth in the loan portfolio.

For the first quarter ended September 30, 2013, non-interest income was $7.0 million compared to $6.8 million for the three months ended September 30, 2012. The increase in non-interest income was the result of a $3.1 million increase in gain on sale -- other, primarily resulting from sales of structured settlements, a $0.6 million increase in banking service fees and other income, a $0.5 million increase in prepayment penalty fee income, and a $0.5 million increase in gains on securities, partially offset by a $4.5 million decrease in mortgage banking income.

Non-interest expense or operating costs increased $3.0 million to $14.5 million for the quarter ended September 30, 2013 from $11.5 million for the three months ended September 30, 2012. The increase was mainly a result of an increase in compensation expense of $1.4 million related to additional staffing added since September 30, 2012, an increase in professional services of $0.8 million, and an increase of $0.6 million in data processing and internet expenses. The increases in staffing and data processing and internet expenses are primarily due to growth of the Bank's lending and deposit operations.

Balance Sheet Summary

BofI's total assets increased $193.4 million, or 6.3%, to $3,284.2 million, as of September 30, 2013, up from $3,090.8 million at June 30, 2013. The loan portfolio increased a net $176.1 million, primarily from portfolio loan originations of $470.7 million less principal repayments and other adjustments of $300.7 million. Loans held for sale decreased $6.1 million. Investment securities increased $27.1 million as new security investments exceeded principal repayments. Total liabilities increased by $179.1 million or 6.3%, to $3.0 billion at September 30, 2013, up from $2.8 billion at June 30, 2013. The increase in total liabilities resulted primarily from growth in demand, savings and time deposits of $101.0 million. Stockholders' equity increased by $14.4 million, or 5.4%, from $268.3 million at June 30, 2013. The increase was primarily the result of $12.2 million in net income, vesting and issuance of RSU's and exercise of stock options of $1.8 million, a $0.6 million unrealized gain in other comprehensive income, net of tax and a reduction of $0.1 million in dividends declared on preferred stock.

Use of Non-GAAP Financial Measures

In addition to the results presented in accordance with GAAP, this report includes non-GAAP financial measures such as core earnings.

Readers should be aware of these limitations and should be cautious as to their use of such measures. Although BofI believes the non-GAAP financial measures disclosed in this report enhance investors' understanding of its business and performance, these non-GAAP measures should not be considered in isolation, or as a substitute for GAAP basis financial measures.
