“Our local economy remains stable with minimal negative effect from the pandemic. Inward Migration to Kootenai County has increased for both businesses and consumers creating strong demand in the real estate market in the latter half of 2020. Idaho leads the nation with 90% plus of small businesses open and operating. Earnings declined from prior year as a result of lower interest rates, significant expenses related to our core system conversion and a full year of operation for our Post Falls branch. Revenue earned from originating Paycheck Protection Program (PPP) loans was a significant contribution to our bottom line. We experienced strong deposit growth with three or our four branches growing between 34% - 41% while our newest branch grew 200%. Historically low interest rates continue to put pressure on our net interest margin, but our strong core deposit base allowed us to reduce our funding costs to offset lost revenue. During the fourth quarter we began processing PPP forgiveness with 59% of our loans forgiven which is 100% of those submitted. Although credit quality remains strong, we added $160,500 to our loan loss provision during the second half of the year due to the uncertainty over the coming months. Loan demand has increased in recent months allowing us to reallocate assets from cash or low yielding investment into loans at a significantly higher yield.” said Wes Veach, President and Chief Executive Officer.
