EVANSVILLE, Ind. - Oct. 27, 2017 - PRLog -- First Bancorp of Indiana, Inc. (OTCBB:FBPI), the holding company for First Federal Savings Bank, reported earnings of $438,000 for the first fiscal quarter ended September 30, 2017, compared to $394,000 for the same quarter a year ago.
Net interest income for quarter ended September 30, 2017, improved 5.2% from the same quarter last fiscal year as the net loan portfolio grew $32.5 million, or 13.6%, over the past 12 months. Noninterest income increased 9.1% between the comparative quarters due to certain non-recurring items including refunds of data processing fees paid in fiscal 2017. Greater employee compensation and medical insurance expenses were largely responsible for the 5.1% increase in noninterest expenses.
At approximately 8.4%, First Federal's tier one leverage ratio was well in excess of the five percent regulatory standard for "well-capitalized" financial institutions. The bank's other capital measurements also continue to comfortably exceed "well-capitalized" standards. In addition, First Bancorp has paid a dividend of 15.5 cents per outstanding share for 38 consecutive quarters.
