WATSEKA, Ill.–(BUSINESS WIRE)–IF Bancorp, Inc. (NASDAQ: IROQ) (the “Company”) the holding company for
Iroquois Federal Savings and Loan Association (the “Association”),
announced unaudited net income of $804,000, or $0.24 per basic and
diluted share, for the three months ended March 31, 2019, compared to
net income of $994,000, or $0.27 per basic and diluted share, for the
three months ended March 31, 2018.

For the three months ended March 31, 2019, net interest income was $4.4
million compared to $4.3 million for the three months ended March 31,
2018. The provision for loan losses decreased to $61,000 for the three
months ended March 31, 2019, from $110,000 for the three months ended
March 31, 2018. Interest and dividend income increased to $6.7 million
for the three months ended March 31, 2019, from $5.7 million for the
three months ended March 31, 2018. Interest expense increased to $2.3
million for the three months ended March 31, 2019, from $1.4 million for
the three months ended March 31, 2018. Non-interest income decreased to
$768,000 for the three months ended March 31, 2019, from $913,000 for
the three months ended March 31, 2018. Non-interest expense increased to

million for the three months ended March 31, 2018. Provision for income
tax increased to $286,000 for the three months ended March 31, 2019,

per diluted share for the nine months ended March 31, 2018. Net income
for the nine months ended March 31, 2018, was impacted by an additional
$1.3 million income tax expense due to a downward adjustment to our net
deferred tax assets (“DTA”) related to the Tax Cuts and Jobs Act of 2017
(“Tax Act”). The Tax Act provided for a reduction in the corporate
income tax rate from 35% to 21% effective January 1, 2018, which
resulted in the downward adjustment to our DTA. For the nine months
ended March 31, 2019, net interest income was $13.4 million compared to
$13.2 million for the nine months ended March 31, 2018. The provision

31, 2019, from $468,000 for the nine months ended March 31, 2018.
Interest and dividend income increased to $19.8 million for the nine
months ended March 31, 2019, from $16.8 million for the nine months
ended March 31, 2018. Interest expense increased to $6.4 million for the
nine months ended March 31, 2019 from $3.7 million for the nine months
ended March 31, 2018. Non-interest income was $3.1 million for both the
nine months ended March 31, 2019, and the nine months ended March 31,
2018. Non-interest expense increased to $12.6 million for the nine
months ended March 31, 2019 from $12.0 million for the nine months ended
March 31, 2018. Provision for income tax decreased to $910,000 for the
nine months ended March 31, 2019, from $2.5 million for the nine months
ended March 31, 2018.

offset by net income of $2.5 million, an increase of $2.5 million in
