"Year over year our diluted earnings per share increased 30% for the quarter ended December 31, 2013, the eighth consecutive quarter of record earnings," noted Mr. Greg Garrabrants, President and Chief Executive Officer. "Our continued success is based on the strength and diversity of our deposit, lending and fee income businesses. This quarter our net interest margin reached 4.01% as our cost of funds continues to decline due to growth in core deposits and declines in higher-cost CDs and borrowings. Our strong asset quality became stronger as annualized net charge offs to average loans declined to 5 basis points for the second quarter of fiscal 2014, down from 13 basis points for the second quarter of fiscal 2013. Non-performing assets to total assets decreased to 49 basis points, down from 79 basis points at December 31, 2012 and down from 55 basis points at September 30, 2013. Our Bank's Tier 1 Leverage Ratio was 9.01% at December 31, 2013, up 51 basis points from the ratio at September 30, 2013 as a result of contributions to capital from quarterly earnings and our at-the-market issuance of $17.3 million of BOFI common stock at a weighted average price of $73.12 per share before commissions. We believe our Bank is well positioned for continued success in 2014."

Other Highlights:

  • Total assets reached $3,568.3 million, up $694.0 million or 24.1% compared to December 31, 2012
  • Loan portfolio grew by $622.0 million or 28.9% compared to December 31, 2012

Second Quarter Fiscal 2014 Income Statement Summary
During the quarter ended December 31, 2013, BofI earned $13.2 million or $0.91 per diluted share compared to $9.8 million, or $0.70 per diluted share for the quarter ended December 31, 2012. Net interest income increased $7.9 million or 31.6% for the quarter ended December 31, 2013 compared to December 31, 2012. Average earning assets grew year over year by $660.1 million and our net interest margin was 4.01% compared to 3.81% for the quarters ended December 31, 2013 and 2012, respectively.

Loan loss provision was $1.0 million for the quarter ended December 31, 2013 as compared to $2.0 million for the quarter ended December 31, 2012. The decrease was the result of lower charge-offs and improvements in non-performing loans and delinquencies this quarter compared to the second quarter of fiscal 2013 and was partially offset by additional provisions needed for growth in the loan portfolio.

For the second quarter ended December 31, 2013, non-interest income was $5.5 million compared to $6.2 million for the three months ended December 31, 2012. The decrease quarter over quarter was primarily the result of a decline of $2.4 million in mortgage banking income and an unrealized loss of $0.5 million in trading securities. The decrease was partially offset by a $1.0 million increase in gain on sale - other, a $0.7 million increase in prepayment penalty fee income and a $0.6 million increase in banking service fees and other income.

Non-interest expense or operating costs increased $2.5 million to $15.3 million for the quarter ended December 31, 2013 from $12.8 million for the three months ended December 31, 2012. The increase was mainly a result of an increase in compensation expense of $1.0 million related to additional staffing added since December 31, 2012, an increase in professional services of $0.5 million, and an increase of $0.7 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 $477.5 million, or 15.5%, to $3,568.3 million, as of December 31, 2013, up from $3,090.8 million at June 30, 2013. The loan portfolio increased a net $520.4 million, primarily from portfolio loan originations of $1,067.7 million less principal repayments and other adjustments of $547.3 million. Loans held for sale increased $10.4 million. Investment securities increased $9.4 million as new security investments exceeded principal repayments. Total liabilities increased by $434.1 million, or 15.4%, to $3,256.6 million at December 31, 2013, up from $2,822.5 million at June 30, 2013. The increase in total liabilities resulted primarily from growth in demand and savings deposits of $504.6 million partially offset by a decline in time deposits of $193.5 million. Stockholders' equity increased by $43.4 million, or 16.2%, to $311.7 million at December 31, 2013 from $268.3 million at June 30, 2013. The increase was primarily the result of $25.3 million in net income and sale of common stock of $16.7 million, net of commissions and fees.

The Bank's Tier 1 capital was 9.01% at December 31, 2013, compared to 8.52% at December 31, 2012.

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 that 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.
