BofI Holding, Inc. Announces Record Fourth Quarter Net Income of $24.4 Million

Q4 Diluted EPS Increases 41.3%; Full-Year Diluted EPS Increases 39.5%

SAN DIEGO, CA--(Marketwired - Jul 30, 2015) - BofI Holding, Inc. (NASDAQ: BOFI) ("BofI"), parent company of BofI Federal Bank (the "Bank"), today announced financial results for the fourth quarter and the fiscal year ended June 30, 2015. Net income was a record $24.4 million, an increase of 52.4% over net income of $16.0 million for the quarter ended June 30, 2014. Earnings attributable to BofI's common stockholders were $24.3 million or $1.54 per diluted share for the fourth quarter of fiscal 2015, an increase of 52.6% from $15.9 million or $1.09 per diluted share for the fourth quarter of fiscal 2014.

Adjusted earnings, a non-GAAP measure previously labeled "core earnings," which excludes the after-tax impact of gains and losses associated with the Bank's securities portfolio, increased 45.7% to $23.5 million for the quarter ended June 30, 2015 compared to $16.1 million for the quarter ended June 30, 2014. In the fourth quarter of fiscal 2015 the Company received a one-time dividend of $1.7 million, before tax, from the FHLB as a result of the Federal Home Loan Bank's ("FHLB") private-label mortgage-backed securities litigation settlement. Adjusted earnings in the table below excludes the after-tax impact of this one-time dividend.

For the fiscal year ended June 30, 2015, net income was a record $82.7 million, an increase of 47.8% over net income of $56.0 million for the fiscal year ended June 30, 2014. Earnings attributable to BofI's common stockholders were $82.4 million or $5.37 per diluted share for the fiscal year ended June 30, 2015, an increase of 48.0% from $55.6 million or $3.85 per diluted share for the fiscal year ended June 30, 2014. Record earnings for the quarter and for the year ended June 30, 2015 were primarily the result of growth in the Bank's loan portfolio.

"We achieved our fourteenth consecutive quarter of record earnings through strong loan originations, fee income growth, and disciplined expense management," stated Greg Garrabrants, President and Chief Executive Officer. "Continued growth in our jumbo single family mortgage portfolio, record production from our C&I lending group and strong deposit growth were contributing factors to our increased net interest income this quarter. We further diversified our funding mix, with checking and savings accounts increasing to approximately 82% of our total deposits at June 30, 2015 compared to 74% a year ago. Our net interest margin increased to 3.97% this quarter including the one-time divided received from the FHLB and would have been 3.85% without the one-time dividend, equal to last quarter and within our target range. Lastly, our efficiency ratio improved to 31.65% this quarter, or 32.47% without the one-time dividend, as our cost management program's focus shifted to vendor cost reduction and productivity improvement."

Other Highlights:

  • Total assets reached $5,823.7 million, up $1,420.7 million or 32.3% compared to June 30, 2014
  • Loan portfolio grew by $1,395.8 million or 39.5% compared to June 30, 2014

Fourth Quarter Fiscal 2015 Income Statement Summary
During the quarter ended June 30, 2015, BofI earned $24.4 million or $1.54 per diluted share compared to $16.0 million, or $1.09 per diluted share for the quarter ended June 30, 2014. Net interest income increased $14.8 million or 36.5% for the quarter ended June 30, 2015 compared to June 30, 2014. Average earning assets grew year over year by $1,547.6 million and our net interest margin was 3.97% compared to 4.02% for the quarters ended June 30, 2015 and 2014, respectively.

Loan loss provision was $2.9 million for the quarter ended June 30, 2015 as compared to $2.3 million for the quarter ended June 30, 2014. The increase was primarily the result of growth in the loan portfolio.

For the fourth quarter ended June 30, 2015, non-interest income was $10.3 million compared to $4.7 million for the three months ended June 30, 2014. The primary reasons for the increase year over year were a $2.2 million increase in mortgage banking income, a $1.9 million increase in prepayment penalty fee income, a $0.8 million increase in other gains on sale and a $0.5 million increase in banking service fees and other income.

Non-interest expense or operating costs increased $5.0 million to $20.8 million for the quarter ended June 30, 2015 from $15.8 million for the three months ended June 30, 2014. The increase was primarily a result of an increase in compensation expense of $3.3 million, related to additional staffing added since June 30, 2014, an increase in advertising and promotional expense of $0.6 million, an increase in data processing and internet expenses of $0.4 million and an increase in other and general administrative expenses of $0.6 million. The increases in staffing and other operating expenses are primarily due to growth of the Bank's lending and deposit operations.

Balance Sheet Summary
BofI's total assets increased $1,420.7 million, or 32.3%, to $5,823.7 million, as of June 30, 2015, up from $4,403.0 million at June 30, 2014. The loan portfolio increased a net $1,395.8 million, primarily from portfolio loan originations of $3,271.9 million less principal repayments and other adjustments of $1,876.1 million. Total securities decreased by $73.8 million. Total liabilities increased by $1,258.0 million or 31.2%, to $5,290.2 million at June 30, 2015, up from $4,032.2 million at June 30, 2014. The increase in total liabilities resulted primarily from growth in demand and savings deposits of $1,408.1 million partially offset by a decrease in FHLB borrowings of $157.0 million. Stockholders' equity increased by $162.7 million, or 43.9%, to $533.5 million at June 30, 2015, up from $370.8 million at June 30, 2014. The increase was primarily the result of $82.7 million in net income, sale of common stock through ATM offerings of $76.0 million and vesting and issuance of RSUs and exercise of stock options of $3.4 million.

The Bank's tier 1 core capital to adjusted average assets was 9.25% 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:
