First Bancorp of Indiana, Inc. Announces Financial Results

EVANSVILLE, IN--(Marketwired - Apr 18, 2014) - First Bancorp of Indiana, Inc. (OTCBB: FBPI), the holding company for First Federal Savings Bank, reported earnings of $412,000 for the quarter ended March 31, 2014. Although lower than the $471,000 for the same quarter last year, net income improved from the $321,000 reported last quarter. The Company recognized earnings of $1,033,000 through the first nine months of fiscal 2014, down from $1,252,000 for the same period in fiscal 2013. The lower fiscal 2014 comparative results were due largely to reduced gains from sales of newly originated mortgage loans as refinancing activity slowed significantly. The slowdown led to a 19.5% decrease in noninterest income for the quarter and a 13.4% decline for the fiscal year to date. Although residential mortgage activity remains well below pre-recession levels, net loans grew 8.2% over the past 12 months contributing to a 10.5% improvement in net interest income for the comparative quarters.
