SANTA ANA, CA / ACCESSWIRE / August 3, 2021 / Infinity Bank (OTCQB:INFT) (the 'Bank') today reported financial results for the second quarter ended June 30, 2021.

Financial Highlights for the second quarter of 2021:

  • The Bank realized its third consecutive and largest profitable quarter, $302 thousand
  • Increased profitability by 20.3% over the first quarter of 2021
  • Total loans increased by $10.8 million
  • Total deposits increased by $16.6 million

Loans

For the quarter ended June 30, 2021, total loans equaled $153.5 million, an increase of $10.8 million, or 7.5% from previous quarter ended March 31, 2021. Total loans increased by $17.7 million, or 13% when compared to December 31, 2020. As of June 30, 2021, the Bank recorded an increase of $34.3 million in new loan commitments. During the second quarter of 2021, $5.6 million Paycheck Protection Program ('PPP') loans were forgiven bringing the balance of PPP loans down to $12.8 million. The loan to deposit ratio decreased to 87.1% as of June 30, 2021, compared to 89.4% at March 31, 2021. Given the current economic conditions, the Bank's allowance for loan and lease losses ('ALLL') remains at 1.3% on all non-PPP loans. The ALLL was 1.20%, 1.14% and 1.16% of total loans as of June 30, 2021, March 31, 2021, and December 31, 2020, respectively. PPP loans are guaranteed by the U.S. Government and, therefore, do not require an ALLL amount to be allocated to them and therefore as the total PPP loans outstanding decrease, the ALLL as a % of total loans increases

The yield on average loans has remained relatively stable during 2021 at approximately 5.7%. The yield on average loans increased 54 basis points to 5.70% from the same quarter in 2020 and 10 basis points to 5.71% from the six-month period ended June 30, 2020.

Deposits and Borrowed Funds

Total deposits increased by $16.6 million, or 10.4% to $176.3 million when compared to first quarter ended March 31, 2021, and $3.9 million or 2.2% when compared to December 31, 2020. Noninterest-bearing demand accounts increased by $14.4 million or 17.4% during the second quarter of 2021 to $97.3 million as of June 30, 2021 and comprises over 55% of total deposits. Noninterest-bearing demand accounts decreased $3.4 million or 3.4% when compared to December 31, 2020. Interest-bearing deposits grew by $2.2 million or 2.9% when compared to March 31, 2021, and by $7.3 million or 10.2% from December 31, 2020 to June 30, 2021.

The cost of funds for the quarter ended June 30, 2021 at 26 basis points, an increase of 2 basis points when compared to the quarter ended March 31, 2021 and a decrease of 16 basis points when compared to the same quarter of the previous year. The low cost of funds is a result of the Bank's continued focus on long-term deposit relationships that are not solely based on pricing.

Net-Interest Income

Net-interest income in the second quarter of 2021 was $2 million, up $77 thousand, or 4.0% from the first quarter of 2021 and up $784 thousand, or 65.1% over the second quarter of 2020. For the six months ended June 30, 2021 the Bank's net-interest income equaled $3.9 million, an increase of $1.5 million, or 63.2% from the six-months ended June 30, 2020. The Bank's primary source of net-interest income was driven by interest income from loans. The Bank's net interest margin increased by 5 basis points during the second quarter 2021 when compared to the previous linked quarter. The Bank's net interest margin increased over 101 basis points when compared to the quarter ended June 30, 2020 due to the decrease in PPP loans as of June 30, 2021 as compared to the prior year. PPP loans earn interest at 1% and comprised 21% of the Bank's total loans as of June 30, 2020 versus 8% as of June 30, 2021.

Non-Interest Income

For the quarter ended June 30, 2021, total non-interest income totaled $81 thousand, an increase of $30 thousand, or 58.8%, from the previous quarter ended March 31, 2021.

For the six months ended June 30, 2021 total non-interest income equaled $132 thousand, an increase of $25 thousand or 23.4% when compared to the six months ended June 30, 2020. The increase in non-interest income for all periods was driven equally by service charges and other income.

Non-Interest Expense

Total non-interest expense decreased by $229 thousand, or 13.8% versus the previous quarter ended March 31, 2021. Non-interest expense increased $169 thousand, or 13.3% when compared to the same period ended June 30, 2020. The decrease in non-interest expense for the three months ended June 30, 2021 was primarily due to certain non-recurring expenses related to salaries and employee benefits that were incurred during the first quarter of 2021. For the six months ended June 30, 2021 non-interest expense totaled $3.1 million, an increase of $445 thousand or 14.4% from like period in 2020 and was primarily related to the addition of staff to support the Bank's asset growth of 13.5% year over year as well as incentives paid.
