(1) Core earnings is a non-GAAP me
asure that excludes realized and
unrealized gains and losses, net of taxes, associated with our
securities portfolios. 
"We posted our ninth consecutive quarter of record earnings and we
made major steps this quarter towards accomplishing several of our
long-term goals," noted Mr. Greg Garrabrants, President and Chief
Executive Officer, and he continued. "First, our record earnings this
quarter were the result of our efforts to expand organic loan growth
and to diversify our lending through selected C&I loan types. Second,
on April 10th we made a major step toward our goal to significantly
expand our prepaid card sponsorship by announcing a definitive
agreement with H&R Block, the world's largest consumer tax services
provider, to acquire deposits and to provide H&R Block-branded
financial services products including the Emerald Prepaid MasterCard,
one of the top prepaid card programs in the nation. After approval by
our regulators, the agreement to provide H&R Block branded services
could increase revenue $26 to $28 million per year from all products
planned to be offered in the agreements. Third, our efficiency ratio
this quarter decreased to 35.1%, close to our long-term target of
35%, and helped us increase our return on average equity to 17.9% for
three months ended March 31, 2014. As we invest in our people and
infrastructure to prepare for our continued growth our efficiency
ratio may increase from time to time, but our goal of creating
greater scale economies in our business remains clear. Finally, net
annualized charge-offs to average loans outstanding for the nine
months ended March 31, 2014 was six basis points, on track for the
lowest annual level since fiscal year ended June 30, 2008."

Third Quarter Fiscal 2014 Income Statement Summary
 During the quarter
ended March 31, 2014, BofI earned $14.6 million or $1.00 per diluted
share compared to $10.4 million, or $0.74 per diluted share for the
quarter ended March 31, 2013. Net interest income increased $9.5
million or 36.1% for the quarter ended March 31, 2014 compared to
March 31, 2013. Average earning assets grew year over year by $861.1
million and our net interest margin was 3.89% compared to 3.74% for
the quarters ended March 31, 2014 and 2013, respectively.  
The loan loss provision of $1.6 million for the quarter ended March
31, 2014 was consistent with the quarter ended March 31, 2013. This
was the result of improvements in non-performing loans and
delinquencies this quarter compared to the third quarter of fiscal
2013 and was partially offset by additional provisions needed for
growth in the loan portfolio. 
For the third quarter ended March 31, 2014, non-interest income was
$5.2 million compared to $6.8 million for the three months ended
March 31, 2013. The decrease quarter over quarter was primarily the
result of a decline of $3.0 million in mortgage banking income and an
unrealized loss of $0.6 million in our securities portfolio. The
decrease was partially offset by a $1.9 million increase in gain on
sale - other and a $0.5 million increase in banking service fees and
other income. 
Non-interest expense or operating costs increased $0.4 million to
$14.3 million for the quarter ended March 31, 2014 from $13.9 million
for the three months ended March 31, 2013. The increase was mainly a
result of an increase in compensation expense of $0.2 million related
to additional staffing added since March 31, 2013, an increase in
professional services of $0.5 million, and an increase of $0.8
million in data processing and internet expenses. The increases in
staffing and data processing and internet expenses are primarily due
to growth of the Bank's lending and deposit operations. This increase
in operating costs was partially offset by a decrease in other
general and administrative costs of $0.9 million as a result of the
cost management initiative implemented to improve the efficiency and
effectiveness of people, vendor and other costs. We expect
non-interest expense to increase in future periods despite recent
cost savings as we plan for future growth initiatives. 
Balance Sheet Summary
 BofI's total assets increased $760.1 million,
or 24.6%, to $3,850.8 million, as of March 31, 2014, up from $3,090.8
million at June 30, 2013. The loan portfolio increased a net $844.5
million, primarily from portfolio loan originations of $1,617.5
million less principal repayments and other adjustments of $773.0
million. Loans held for sale decreased $12.3 million. Investment
securities decreased $1.4 million as principal repayments exceeded 
new security investments. Total liabilities increased by $689.5
million, or 24.4%, to $3,512.0 million at March 31, 2014, up from
$2,822.5 million at June 30, 2013. The increase in total liabilities
resulted primarily from growth in demand and savings deposits of
$930.6 million partially offset by a decline in time deposits of
$189.6 million and the expiration of $50.0 million of repurchase
agreements. Stockholders' equity increased by $70.6 million, or
26.3%, to $338.8 million at March 31, 2014 from $268.3 million at
June 30, 2013. The increase was primarily the result of $39.9 million
in net income and sale of common stock of $27.6 million, net of
commissions and fees.  
The Bank's Tier 1 capital was 9.07% at March 31, 2014, compared to
8.64% at March 31, 2013.

Use of Non-GAAP Financial Measures
 In addition to the results
presented in accordance with GAAP, this report includes non-GAAP
financial measures such as core earnings. Core earnings exclude
realized and unrealized gains and losses associated with our
securities portfolios. Excluding these gains and losses provides
investors with an understanding of BofI's core lending and mortgage
banking business. Non-GAAP financial measures that have inherent
limitations are not required to be uniformly applied and are not
audited. Readers should be aware of these limitations and should be
cautious as to their use of such measures. Although BofI believes the
non-GAAP financial measures disclosed in this report enhance
investors' understanding of its business and performance, these
non-GAAP measures should not be considered in isolation, or as a
substitute for GAAP basis financial measures. Below is a
reconciliation of GAAP net income to core earnings:
