Net income was $29,476,000 for the fiscal year ended June 30, 2012 an increase of 43.2% over $20,579,000 earned for the fiscal year ended June 30, 2011. Earnings attributable to BofI's common stockholders were $28,205,000 or $2.33 per diluted share for the 2012 fiscal year, an increase of 24.6% from $20,270,000 or $1.87 per diluted share for the fiscal year ended June 30, 2011.

"We finished the year with positive trends across each of our key performance indicators and businesses," remarked Greg Garrabrants, President and Chief Executive Officer. "We posted record net income for the quarter and the fiscal year. Our net interest margin increased to 3.80% this quarter, up 8 basis points when compared to last quarter and up 11 basis points compared to the fourth quarter of fiscal 2011. Gain on sale from our mortgage banking business reached a new high of $4.5 million for the fourth quarter of fiscal 2012. Our loan portfolio grew 30% year-over-year and our non-performing assets fell to 77 basis points, down from 99 basis points at the end of fiscal 2011. Our deposit mix moved to 43% checking and savings at the end of the fiscal year, up from 26% at the end of fiscal 2011. Having accomplished many of our goals this year, we will continue to build a strong foundation for our future growth."

The increase in earnings for the quarter ended June 30, 2012 was primarily the result of increased net interest income and non-interest income. Net interest income increased 31.5% this quarter compared to the fourth quarter of 2011 due to an increase in average interest-earning assets of $489.8 million. The primary reason for the increase in average interest-earning assets was due to growth in the loan portfolio, where the average balance increased $524.9 million. Non-interest income was $4,958,000 for the quarter ended June 30, 2012 an increase of $2,938,000 compared to $2,020,000 for the quarter ended June 30, 2011. Increased mortgage banking volume, particularly sales of non-agency loans, during the fourth quarter of fiscal 2012 was the primary reason for the 145.4% growth in non-interest income year over year. The increase in net interest income and non-interest income in the fourth quarter of fiscal 2012 was partially offset by higher operating expenses year over year. Core earnings, which exclude the after-tax impact of gains and losses associated with our securities portfolio, increased 69.1% to $8,817,000 for the quarter ended June 30, 2012 compared to $5,213,000 for the quarter ended June 30, 2011.

Other Highlights:

  • Loan portfolio grew by $395.5 million or 29.8% compared to June 30, 2011
  • Loan originations grew to $1.4 billion for fiscal 2012, up 69.2% compared to fiscal 2011
  • Deposits grew by $274.8 million, or 20.5% compared to June 30, 2011
  • Asset quality remains strong with total non-performing assets of 0.77% of total assets and non-performing loans equal to 0.98% of total loans at June 30, 2012

Fourth Quarter 2012 Income Statement Summary

During the quarter ended June 30, 2012, BofI earned $8,565,000 or $0.64 per diluted share compared to $5,545,000, or $0.50 per diluted share for the three months ended June 30, 2011. Net interest income increased $5,175,000 or 31.5% for the quarter ended June 30, 2012 compared to June 30, 2011. Average earning assets grew year over year by $489.8 million and our net interest margin was 3.80% compared to 3.69% for the quarters ended June 30, 2012 and 2011, respectively.

Loan loss provision was $2,100,000 for the quarter ended June 30, 2012 as compared to $1,450,000 for June 30, 2011. Growth in the loan portfolio in fiscal 2012 required an increase in loan loss provisions. 

For the fourth quarter ended June 30, 2012, non-interest income was $4,958,000 compared to $2,020,000 for the three months ended June 30, 2011. The increase was primarily due to gain on sale of mortgage loans which was $4.5 million for the quarter ended June 30, 2012. Prepayment penalty income increased in the fourth quarter of fiscal 2012 to $548,000, up from $48,000 due to more loans prepaying in fiscal 2012. 

Non-interest expense or operating costs increased $2,346,000, to $10,012,000 for the quarter ended June 30, 2012 from $7,666,000 for the three months ended June 30, 2011. The increase was mainly a result of an increase in compensation expense of $1,103,000 related to additional staffing added during the year, an increase in data processing expense of $312,000 and an increase in advertising of $418,000 due to costs associated with increased loan and deposit products and account volumes.

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. 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 consider in isolation, or as a substitute for GAAP basis financial measures.
