First Quarter Fiscal 2016 Income Statement Summary
During the quarter ended September 30, 2015, BofI earned $25.5 million or $1.60 per diluted share compared to $17.8 million, or $1.20 per diluted share for the quarter ended September 30, 2014. Net interest income increased $14.3 million or 31.8% for the quarter ended September 30, 2015 compared to September 30, 2014. Average earning assets grew year over year by $1,371.5 million and our net interest margin was 4.02% compared to 3.98% for the quarters ended September 30, 2015 and 2014, respectively.

The loan loss provision was $2.4 million for the quarter ended September 30, 2015 compared to $2.5 million for the quarter ended September 30, 2014. The decrease was primarily due to a net recovery of $0.4 million during the quarter ended September 30, 2015.

For the first quarter ended September 30, 2015, non-interest income was $9.8 million compared to $5.2 million for the three months ended September 30, 2014. The increase year over year was primarily the result of a $2.8 million increase in gain on sale -- other from sales of structured settlements and an increase in banking service fees and other income of $1.9 million primarily due to H&R Block service fees.

Non-interest expense or operating costs increased $5.5 million to $22.9 million for the quarter ended September 30, 2015 from $17.4 million for the three months ended September 30, 2014. The increase was mainly a result of an increase in compensation expense of $4.6 million related to staffing added since September 30, 2014, an increase in data processing and internet expense of $0.4 million and an increase of $0.3 million in advertising and promotional expense. The increases in staffing, data processing and internet expense and advertising and promotional expense were incurred to support the growth of the Bank's operations.

Balance Sheet Summary
BofI's total assets increased $435.9 million, or 7.5%, to $6,259.6 million, as of September 30, 2015, up from $5,823.7 million at June 30, 2015.

Loans held for sale increased $3.0 million. Investment securities decreased $2.7 million primarily due to principal repayments. Total liabilities increased by $391.2 million, or 7.4%, to $5,681.4 million at September 30, 2015, up from $5,290.2 million at June 30, 2015.

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 adjusted earnings. Adjusted earnings, previously labeled as "core earnings," exclude realized and unrealized gains and losses associated with our securities portfolios. Excluding these gains and losses provides investors with an understanding of BofI's core lending and mortgage banking business. Non-GAAP financial measures have inherent limitations, are not required to be uniformly applied and are not audited. 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. Below is a reconciliation of GAAP net income to adjusted earnings:
