02.11.2018 - 23:36

SANTA ANA, CA / ACCESSWIRE / November 2, 2018 / Infinity Bank (INFT) (the "Bank") released unaudited financial results for the third quarter ended September 30, 2018.

Highlights for the third quarter of 2018 included:

Noninterest-bearing demand accounts increased by 127%

Cost of Funds of 17 basis points for the quarter, one of the lowest in the nation among commercial banks

Net Interest Margin increased to 2.56%

Total Assets increased $16.2 million (37.5%) to $59.5 million

Net Interest Income:

Net interest income in the third quarter of 2018 was $269 thousand, an increase of $97 thousand or 56.4% from the second quarter of 2018. The Bank's primary source of revenue was driven by income from interest-bearing deposits held at the Federal Reserve Bank and interest on loans and investment securities. For the third quarter of 2018, the average yield on interest-earning assets was 2.62%, an increase of 51 basis points compared with the second quarter of 2018. The Bank's cost of funds dropped to 17 basis points for the third quarter of 2018, compared to a cost of funds of 41 basis points for the second quarter of 2018. The drop is attributed to the large share of noninterest-bearing deposits as a percentage of total Bank deposits.


Total loans increased slightly, ending the third quarter at $4.7 million, an increase of 14.0% over loans outstanding at the end of the previous quarter. Loan growth did not meet management's expectations for the quarter as approvable loan applications were lower than anticipated. However, management has noted a significant increase in pipeline activity toward the end of the third quarter.


The Bank continues to focus on growing relationship-based deposits. For the third quarter, the sum of average noninterest-bearing account balances and average interest-bearing account balances increased from $10.0 million at June 30, 2018 to $22.8 million at September 30, 2018, an increase of $12.8 million (128%).

Non-Interest Income:

Non-interest income was $9 thousand during the third quarter versus $6 thousand for the second quarter of 2018. As deposit and loan volumes increase, management expects to see several components of non-interest income also rise.

Non-Interest Expense:

Total non-interest expense was $1.3 million during the third quarter versus $988 thousand for the second quarter of 2018, an increase of 28.2%, primarily as a result of fully staffing the Bank.


As of September 30, 2018, the Bank's Tier 1 capital ratio was 274.1% and the Tier 1 leverage ratio was 64.0%. Both ratios exceed the regulatory guidelines for a well-capitalized bank as outlined by the Federal Deposit Insurance Corporation. Tangible book value per share was $8.50 at September 30, 2018.

The Bank is focused on relationship-based banking services to locally owned and operated businesses, their owners, employees and families.
