Pending Merger of First Interstate Bancorp and Great Western Bancorp
On September 16, 2021, First Interstate BancSystem, Inc. (NASDAQ: FIBK) (“FIBK”), parent company of First Interstate Bank, and GWBI, parent company of Great Western Bank, announced they have entered into a definitive agreement under which the companies will combine in an all‐stock transaction. Under the terms of the agreement, which was unanimously approved by both companies’ Boards of Directors, GWBI will merge into FIBK and the combined holding company and bank will operate under the First Interstate name and brand with the company’s headquarters remaining in Billings, Montana. Pending regulatory and shareholder approvals and the satisfaction of the closing conditions set forth in the agreement, the transaction is expected to close during the first calendar quarter of 2022.
Net Interest Income and Net Interest Margin1
Net interest income was $95.1 million for the quarter, down $4.0 million, while net interest margin was 3.10%, a 13 basis point decrease from 3.23%. Adjusted net interest income2, which includes derivative interest expense recognized in noninterest income, was $92.0 million, down $3.9 million, and adjusted net interest margin2 was 3.00%, a 13 basis point decrease from 3.13%. Interest income was lower by $4.7 million as loan interest decreased by $5.3 million while securities and other interest income increased by $0.6 million. Loan interest reflects a $0.9 million decrease in PPP interest and fees, a $1.0 million decrease in recoveries of interest on nonaccrual loans, and a $3.4 million net decrease from lower volumes and lower yields, all partially offset with a $0.6 million increase in securities and other interest driven largely by increased volumes. The decrease in net interest income was partially offset by a $0.2 million decrease in time deposit interest combined with a net $0.6 million decrease in interest on other interest bearing deposits. The decrease in time deposit interest resulted from a decrease in volumes and a 4 basis point decrease in yield to 0.37%, while the decrease in interest on other interest bearing deposits was driven primarily by a 2 basis point decrease in yield of interest
