Federal Home Loan Bank of Indianapolis Declares Dividends, Reports Earnings

07/29/2020 | 01:55pm

INDIANAPOLIS, July 29, 2020 (GLOBE NEWSWIRE) -- Today the Board of Directors of the Federal Home Loan Bank of Indianapolis ("FHLBank Indianapolis" or "Bank") declared its second quarter 2020 dividends on Class B-1 and Class B-2 capital stock at annualized rates of 3.50% and 2.80%, respectively. The dividends will be paid in cash on July 30, 2020.

"We're pleased to be able to pay our members an attractive return and meet their liquidity needs during these uncertain times," said Cindy Konich, FHLBank Indianapolis President and CEO. "We have considerable remote capabilities, and continue to conduct business as usual and operate at full strength."

Earnings Highlights

Net income for the second quarter of 2020 was $13 million, a decrease of $22 million compared to the corresponding quarter in the prior year, primarily due to accelerated amortization of purchase premium resulting from higher prepayments on mortgage loans, net losses on trading securities1, and higher net losses on qualifying fair-value hedging relationships.2 These decreases were partially offset by additional net interest income resulting from the Bank's growth in average asset balances.

Net income for the six months ended June 30, 2020 was $43 million, a decrease of $25 million compared to the corresponding period in the prior year, substantially due to accelerated amortization of purchase premium resulting from higher prepayments on mortgage loans.

Hedging gains (losses) on qualifying fair-value hedging relationships are reported in net interest income. As a result, net interest income3 for the three and six months ended June 30, 2020 included net hedging losses of $19 million and $22 million, respectively, compared to net hedging losses for the three and six months ended June 30, 2019 of $9 million and $22 million, respectively. In general, the Bank holds the derivatives and associated hedged items to the maturity, call, or put date. As a result, we expect that nearly all of the gains and losses on these financial instruments will reverse over the remaining contractual terms of the hedged items.

The Bank uses U.S. Treasury securities as part of its liquidity portfolio. Such securities are classified as trading securities, on which changes in fair value are recorded in other income. Changes in the estimated fair value of the associated economic hedging instruments are also recorded in other income.
The Bank uses interest-rate swaps to hedge the risk of changes in the fair value of certain of its advances, available-for-sale securities and consolidated obligations. These derivatives are designated as fair-value hedges. Changes in the estimated fair value of the derivative and, to the extent these relationships qualify for hedge accounting, changes in the fair value of the hedged item that are attributable to the hedged risk are recorded in earnings.
FHLBank Indianapolis earns interest income on advances to and mortgage loans purchased from its Michigan and Indiana member financial institutions, as well as on long- and short-term investments. Net interest income is primarily determined by the spread between the interest earned on those assets and the interest cost of funding with consolidated obligations.

Affordable Housing Program Allocation 4

For the six months ended June 30, 2020, FHLBank Indianapolis allocated $5 million to its Affordable Housing Program ("AHP"), which provides grant funding to support housing for low- and moderate-income families in Michigan and Indiana. Full year 2020 AHP allocations will be available to the Bank's members in 2021 to help address their communities' affordable housing needs, including construction, rehabilitation, accessibility improvements and homebuyer down-payment assistance.

Balance Sheet Highlights

Total assets at June 30, 2020 were $71.1 billion, an increase of $3.6 billion, or 5%, from December 31, 2019, primarily driven by increases in advances to members.

Advances 5

Advances outstanding at June 30, 2020, at carrying value, totaled $34.8 billion, a net increase of $2.4 billion, or 7%, from December 31, 2019. Such increase included net increases in the par value of short-term advances outstanding of 4.6% and long-term advances outstanding of 5.5%.

The par value of advances to depository institutions - comprising commercial banks, savings institutions and credit unions - and insurance companies each increased by 5%. Advances to depository institutions, as a percent of total advances outstanding at par value, were 53% at June 30, 2020, while advances to insurance companies were 47%.

Mortgage Loans Held for Portfolio 6

Purchases of mortgage loans from the Bank's members for the six months ended June 30, 2020 totaled $1.0 billion. Mortgage loans held for portfolio at June 30, 2020 totaled $10.1 billion, a net decrease of $732 million, or 7%, from December 31, 2019, as principal repayments by borrowers outpaced the Bank's purchases during the period.

Liquidity Portfolio 7

The liquidity portfolio at June 30, 2020 totaled $10.8 billion, an increase of $661 million, or 7%, from December 31, 2019. Included in this portfolio are U.S. Treasury securities classified as trading securities, which decreased by $51 million, or 1%, to $5.0 billion at June 30, 2020. Cash and short-term investments increased by $712 million, or 14%, to $5.8 billion. As a result, cash and short-term investments represented 54% of the liquidity portfolio at June 30, 2020, while U.S. Treasury securities represented 46%.

Each year Federal Home Loan Banks ("FHLBanks") allocate to the AHP 10% of earnings, which is defined as income before assessments, plus interest expense on mandatorily redeemable capital stock.

Consolidated Obligations 8

FHLBank Indianapolis' consolidated obligations outstanding at June 30, 2020 totaled $65.2 billion, a net increase of $2.8 billion, or 5%, from December 31, 2019. Such increase supported the Bank's asset growth.

Capital 9

Total capital at June 30, 2020 was $3.3 billion, a net increase of $161 million, or 5%, from December 31, 2019. Such increase was substantially due to proceeds from the issuance of capital stock, partially offset by net unrealized losses on available-for-sale securities.
