Sioux Falls, SD - April 26, 2018 - Great Western Bancorp, Inc. (
NYSE: GWB) today reported net income of $40.5 million, or $0.69 per diluted share, for the second quarter of fiscal year 2018, compared to net income of $29.2 million, or $0.49 per diluted share. Adjusted net income1, which excludes the deferred tax revaluation triggered by the Tax Cuts and Jobs Act of 2017, was $40.5 million, or $0.69 per diluted share, compared to $42.8 million, or $0.72 per diluted share.
"The second quarter of fiscal year 2018 was another solid quarter for Great Western," said Ken Karels, Chairman, President and Chief Executive Officer. "We continued to see good demand from our loan portfolio, mitigated the rising cost of deposits through increasing loan yields pricing, continued to manage expenses well and increased our dividend due to the peer leading return on capital from our business."
Net Interest Income and Net Interest Margin 2 
Net interest income was steady at $102.2 million for both the second quarter of fiscal year 2018 and the prior quarter. Higher loan interest income, driven by 2.4% growth in average loans outstanding and a 10 basis point increase in the yield on loans, was offset by higher interest expense associated with a 9 basis point increase in the cost of deposits and a 12 basis point increase in the cost of borrowings.
Net interest margin was 3.92% and 3.89%, respectively, for the quarters ended March 31, 2018 and December 31, 2017. Adjusted net interest margin1, which adjusts for the realized gain (loss) on interest rate swaps, was 3.86% and 3.80%, respectively, for the same periods. The yield on interest-earning assets increased by 12 basis points and the cost of interest-bearing liabilities increased by 10 basis points. A $0.8 million reduction in the cost of interest rate swaps was the primary driver of a more pronounced increase in adjusted net margin1 compared to net interest margin.
Total loans outstanding were $9.34 billion as of March 31, 2018, an increase of $172.9 million, or 1.9%, for the quarter, and 7.7% on an annualized basis. The majority of the growth during the quarter occurred in the commercial real estate ("CRE") segment of the portfolio, which increased by $172.1 million, including strong growth in non-owner-occupied CRE and construction loans. Commercial non-real estate loans increased by $71.9 million, which was partially offset by a decrease of $57.5 million in residential real estate.
Total deposits grew to $9.39 billion as of March 31, 2018, an increase of $362.8 million, or 4.0%, during the quarter. Noninterest-bearing deposits were $1.85 billion, a 4.0% decrease, for the quarter and interest-bearing deposits were $7.53 billion, a 6.2% increase for the quarter. FHLB and other borrowings decreased by $170.0 million, or 23.6%, as a result of deposit growth.
