February 22, 2012 –

FHLBank Topeka (FHLBank) announces its operating results for 2011. FHLBank is reporting net income of $77.3 million for fiscal year 2011 compared to $33.5 million for fiscal year 2010. FHLBank expects to file its Form 10-K for 2011 with the Securities and Exchange Commission (SEC) on or about March 19, 2012.

President’s Comments

“FHLBank Topeka recorded another year of outstanding financial performance despite a drop in advance volume over the year allowing the bank to continue to pay strong dividends while also building retained earnings,” said Andrew J. Jetter, president and CEO. “We are pleased that members continue to find great value in the MPF® Program, resulting in a significant increase in both the volume of mortgage loans sold to FHLBank and the number of members accessing the program in 2011.”

Net Income

Net income for fiscal year 2011 computed in accordance with U.S. generally accepted accounting principles (GAAP) was $77.3 million versus $33.5 million for 2010. The increase in net income between 2011 and 2010 was primarily the result of a net change in gain/loss on derivatives and hedging activities of $66.0 million (37.7%), to a $108.7 million loss in 2011 from a $174.7 million loss in 2010. Net interest income decreased $19.0 million (7.6%), to $230.9 million in 2011 from $249.9 million in 2010, as the impact of declining interest earning assets, specifically investments and advances, outweighed the benefit of a better net interest margin (net interest income as a percentage of average earning assets).

GAAP Income versus Adjusted Income and Adjusted Return on Equity

Adjusted income is a non-GAAP measure used by management to evaluate the quality of its ongoing earnings. FHLBank management believes that the presentation of income as measured for management purposes enhances the understanding of FHLBank’s performance by highlighting its underlying results and profitability. By removing volatility created by market value fluctuations and items such as prepayment fees, FHLBank can compare longer-term trends in earnings that might otherwise be indeterminable. Therefore, as part of evaluating its financial performance, FHLBank adjusts net income reported in accordance with GAAP for the impact of: (1) Affordable Housing Program (AHP) and Resolution Funding Corporation (REFCorp) assessments (assessments for AHP and REFCorp through June 30, 2011, were equivalent to an effective minimum income tax rate of 26%; and, upon satisfaction of the REFCorp obligation as of June 30, 2011, the assessment for AHP for the second half of 2011 was equivalent to an effective minimum income tax rate of 10%); (2) items related to derivatives and hedging activities; and (3) other items excluded because they are not considered a part of our routine operations or ongoing business model, such as prepayment fees, gain/loss on retirement of debt, gain/loss on mortgage loans held for sale and gain/loss on securities. The result is referred to as “adjusted income,” which is a non-GAAP measure of income. Adjusted income is used to compute an adjusted return on equity (ROE) that is then compared to the average overnight Federal funds effective rate, with the difference referred to as adjusted ROE spread. Because FHLBank is primarily a “hold-to-maturity” investor and does not trade derivatives, management believes that adjusted income, adjusted ROE and adjusted ROE spread are helpful in understanding its operating results and provide a meaningful period-to-period comparison in contrast to GAAP income and ROE based on GAAP income, which can vary significantly from period to period because of derivatives and hedging activities and certain other items that management excludes when evaluating operational performance because the added volatility does not provide a consistent measurement analysis.

Derivative and hedge accounting affects the timing of income or expense from derivatives, but not the economic income or expense from these derivatives when held to maturity or call date. For example, interest rate caps are purchased with an upfront fixed cost to provide protection against the risk of rising interest rates. Under derivative accounting guidance, these instruments are then marked to market each month, which can result in having to recognize significant gains and losses from year to year, producing volatility in FHLBank’s GAAP income. However, the sum of such gains and losses over the term of a derivative will equal its original purchase price if held to maturity. Although the value of the caps declined significantly during fiscal years 2011 and 2010, the value of the interest rate caps will ultimately equal zero at maturity (at December 31, 2011, the carrying value of the FHLBank’s interest rate caps used to hedge adjustable rate mortgage-backed securities with embedded caps was $45.4 million). Because of the monthly mark-to-market on the caps, FHLBank’s GAAP income will continue to be subject to volatility as both gains and losses on the caps are likely to be recorded in future periods.
