Q4 2019 Press Release

Coeur d’Alene Bancorp, today reported record earnings of $1,404,144 or $0.83 per share for full year 2019, compared to $1,301,133 or $0.98 per share for year ended 2018. Income for fourth quarter 2019 totaled $355,323 compared to $388,064 fourth quarter 2018.

“We generated record profits for the year with pre-tax income increasing 24.06% and net income increasing 7.92% over 2018. Balance sheet strategies and a strong core deposit base allowed for minimal margin compression following three interest rate cuts. We continue to focus on managing non-interest expense with an increase of 2.50% over 2018”, said Wes Veach, President and Chief Executive Officer.

“We were able to continue building on the momentum gained in the third quarter with asset growth of $2.9 million, deposit growth of $2.6 million and loan growth of $942 thousand during the quarter.”

“During the fourth quarter we signed an agreement to convert our third-party core processing services to Computer Services Inc. (CSI) although this decision will benefit the bank in the coming years with greater efficiency and better technology offering, it will impact 2020. We anticipate the conversion to increase information technology costs in the coming year, as well as, demand time of key bank employees for a successful transition. Many of the cost incurred in 2020 will be recouped in later years.”
