IF Bancorp, Inc. (NASDAQ: IROQ) (the "Company"), the holding company for Iroquois Federal Savings and Loan Association (the "Association"), announced unaudited net income of $1.6 million, or $0.51 per basic share and $0.50 per diluted share, for the three months ended March 31, 2021, compared to net income of $810,000, or $0.27 per basic share and $0.26 per diluted share, for the three months ended March 31, 2020.

For the three months ended March 31, 2021, net interest income was $5.0 million compared to $4.6 million for the three months ended March 31, 2020. We recorded a credit for loan losses of $(101,000) for the three months ended March 31, 2021, compared to a provision for loan losses of $282,000 for the three months ended March 31, 2020. Interest and dividend income decreased to $5.9 million for the three months ended March 31, 2021, from $6.8 million for the three months ended March 31, 2020. Interest expense decreased to $902,000 for the three months ended March 31, 2021, from $2.2 million for the three months ended March 31, 2020. Non-interest income increased to $1.6 million for the three months ended March 31, 2021, from $1.2 million for the three months ended March 31, 2020. Non-interest expense increased to $4.6 million for the three months ended March 31, 2021, from $4.4 million for the three months ended March 31, 2020. Provision for income tax increased to $600,000 for the three months ended March 31, 2021, from $316,000 for the three months ended March 31, 2020.

The Company announced unaudited net income of $4.4 million, or $1.43 per basic share and $1.42 per diluted share for the nine months ended March 31, 2021, compared to $2.9 million, or $0.92 per basic share and $0.90 per diluted share for the nine months ended March 31, 2020. For the nine months ended March 31, 2021, net interest income was $15.0 million compared to $13.5 million for the nine months ended March 31, 2020. We recorded a provision for loan losses of $165,000 for the nine months ended March 31, 2021, compared to a provision for loan losses of $198,000 for the nine months ended March 31, 2020. The provision for loan losses recorded in the nine months ended March 31, 2021, was primarily the result of an increase in risk associated with outstanding loans due to a change in portfolio mix, and to a lesser extent, additional reserves for all loans that remain under temporary COVID-19 modifications. These factors were partially offset by a decrease in total loans and the addition of SBA Paycheck Protection Program (PPP) loans that do not require a reserve since they are 100% guaranteed by the US government. While we closed 305 SBA PPP loans representing $26.3 million in funding during 2020, and another 245 SBA PPP loans representing $16.5 million in funding as of March 31, 2021, after SBA forgiveness-to-date, we have 313 loans totaling $27.9 million remaining in our portfolio at March 31, 2021.

Interest and dividend income decreased to $18.4 million for the nine months ended March 31, 2021, from $20.6 million for the nine months ended March 31, 2020. Interest expense decreased to $3.5 million for the nine months ended March 31, 2021 from $7.1 million for the nine months ended March 31, 2020. Our interest income could be reduced in the future due to the effects of the COVID-19 pandemic. In keeping with guidance from our regulators, we are executing payment deferrals for our lending clients who are adversely affected by the pandemic. At March 31, 2021, we had 163 loans with current balances of $86.7 million that have received COVID-19 modifications. These modifications allowed borrowers to pay interest only for up to six months. As of March 31, 2021, 147 of these loans totaling $58.1 million have returned to principal and interest payment, leaving 16 loans totaling $28.6 million still under temporary modifications. These 16 loans include 8 one- to four-family loans totaling $2.0 million, 4 multi-family loans totaling $22.0 million, 3 commercial real estate loans for $3.4 million and one commercial business loan for $1.2 million.

Non-interest income increased to $4.9 million for the nine months ended March 31, 2021, from $3.5 million for the nine months ended March 31, 2020. The increase in non-interest income was mostly due to an increase in gain on sale of loans as a result of a significant increase in refinance activity stimulated by a low interest environment, and also by an increase in gain on sale of available-for-sale securities. Non-interest expense increased to $13.6 million for the nine months ended March 31, 2021 from $12.8 million for the nine months ended March 31, 2020. Provision for income tax increased to $1.7 million for the nine months ended March 31, 2021, from $1.1 million for the nine months ended March 31, 2020.

Total assets at March 31, 2021 were $745.4 million compared to $735.5 million at June 30, 2020. Cash and cash equivalents decreased to $33.3 million at March 31, 2021, from $33.5 million at June 30, 2020. Investment securities increased to $175.8 million at March 31, 2021, from $162.4 million at June 30, 2020. Net loans receivable decreased to $504.5 million at March 31, 2021, from $509.8 million at June 30, 2020. Deposits increased to $617.2 million at March 31, 2021, from $601.7 million at June 30, 2020. Total borrowings, including repurchase agreements, decreased to $33.7 million at March 31, 2021 from $41.2 million at June 30, 2020. Stockholders’ equity increased to $83.5 million at March 31, 2021 from $82.6 million at June 30, 2020. Equity increased due to net income of $4.4 million, and ESOP and stock equity activity of $421,000, partially offset by a decrease of $2.9 million in accumulated other comprehensive income, net of tax, and the accrual of approximately $940,000 in dividends to our shareholders, of which about half were still payable as of March 31, 2021, and were subsequently paid on April 16, 2021.
