INDIANAPOLIS, Feb. 22, 2012 (GLOBE NEWSWIRE) -- On February 22, 2012, the Board of Directors of the Federal Home Loan Bank of Indianapolis ("FHLBI") declared dividends on Class B-1 and Class B-2 capital stock at annualized rates of 3.00% and 2.40%, respectively. These dividends will be paid in cash on February 23, 2012.
"An important value of membership in the FHLBI is the dividend that we have been consistently able to pay our members as a return on their capital investment," commented Milton Miller, President - CEO. "We are pleased that we were able to grow retained earnings and increase the dividend for the fourth quarter."
Net Income for the fourth quarter of 2011 was $35.7 million. The decrease of $5.0 million compared to the same period in 2010 was primarily due to lower net interest income and net losses on derivatives and hedging activities, partially offset by a decrease in Total Assessments resulting from the satisfaction of our obligation to the Resolution Funding Corporation as of June 30, 2011. Net interest income decreased by $8.5 million or 13% in the fourth quarter of 2011, compared to the same period in 2010, primarily due to contracting spreads on mortgage-related assets.
Net Income for the year ended December 31, 2011 was $110.1 million. The decrease of $0.9 million or 1% compared to the same period in 2010 was primarily due to lower net interest income and net losses on derivatives and hedging activities, substantially offset by lower OTTI credit losses on our private-label mortgage-backed securities and a decrease in Total Assessments resulting from the satisfaction of our obligation to the Resolution Funding Corporation as of June 30, 2011. Net interest income decreased by $39.9 million or 15% in 2011, compared to 2010, primarily due to contracting spreads on mortgage-related assets and a reduction in prepayment fees on Advances.
Total Assets at December 31, 2011 were $40.4 billion. The decrease of $4.6 billion or 10% compared to December 31, 2010 was primarily due to a decrease in Investments. Advances outstanding totaled $18.6 billion. The increase of 2% compared to December 31, 2010 was primarily due to higher Advances to our insurance company members. Mortgage Loans Held for Portfolio totaled $6.0 billion. The decrease of 11% compared to December 31, 2010 was primarily due to repayments exceeding the purchases of mortgage loans under our Mortgage Purchase Program. Investments totaled $15.2 billion. The decrease of 23% compared to December 31, 2010 was primarily due to a managed reduction in short-term investments. Consolidated Obligations totaled $36.9 billion at December 31, 2011. The decrease of 10% compared to December 31, 2010 was due to lower funding needs primarily resulting from the reduction in short-term investments.
Total Capital (GAAP) was $1.9 billion at December 31, 2011. The decrease of $0.2 million compared to December 31, 2010 was primarily due to a net decrease in Capital Stock of $47.0 million and a decrease in Accumulated Other Comprehensive Income (Loss) ("AOCI") of $23.3 million, substantially offset by an increase in Retained Earnings of $70.1 million. During the second quarter of 2011, we repurchased $248.0 million of excess stock, consisting of Capital Stock of $125.9 million and Mandatorily Redeemable Capital Stock of $122.1 million.
At December 31, 2011, Total Regulatory Capital was $2.5 billion and our regulatory capital-to-assets ratio was 6.23%, which exceeds all applicable regulatory capital requirements.
"The growth in Advances and strong recruitment of new members during 2011 demonstrates, we believe, the trust that both new and long-standing members have in our ability to provide them with liquidity and funding to support housing finance and economic growth within their communities," stated Miller. "We remain committed to maintaining a strong financial position to ensure our members continue to have reliable access to low-cost funding."
