“We delivered another quarter of strong earnings growth, as our core earnings per share increased 9.6% over the same period in the prior year,” said Kevin Riley, President and Chief Executive Officer of First Interstate BancSystem, Inc. “Our fourth quarter performance was driven by positive year-over-year trends in most of our key metrics.

This furthers adds to our long-standing record of consistently increasing our dividend and returning capital to shareholders," concluded Mr. Riley.

DIVIDEND DECLARATION

On January 19, 2017, the Company's board of directors declared a dividend of $0.24 per common share, payable on February 10, 2017 to owners of record as of January 30, 2017. This dividend equates to a 2.6% annual yield based on the $36.32 average closing price of the Company's common stock during fourth quarter 2016, and reflects a 9.1% increase from dividends paid during fourth quarter 2016 of $0.22 per common share.

FIRST INTERSTATE TRADEMARKS

On January 12, 2017, the Company acquired for cash all right, title and interest in and to all First Interstate-related U.S. trademark registrations owned by Wells Fargo & Company (the "Trademarks"); all common law rights and goodwill associated with the Trademarks; and, all First Interstate-related domain names, which will enable the Company to use the Trademarks throughout the U.S.

PENDING ACQUISITION OF CASCADE BANCORP

On November 17, 2016, the Company entered into an agreement and plan of merger (the "Agreement") to acquire all of the outstanding stock of Cascade Bancorp, parent company of Bank of the Cascades, an Oregon-based community Bank with 50 banking offices across Oregon, Idaho and Washington. Under the terms of the Agreement, each outstanding share of Cascade Bancorp will convert into the right to receive 0.14864 shares of the Company's Class A common stock and $1.91 in cash. Based on the closing price of the Company's Class A common stock on December 31, 2016, the merger consideration represents an aggregate purchase price of approximately $638 million. As of September 30, 2016, Cascade had total assets of $3.2 billion, deposits of $2.7 billion and net loans of $2.0 billion. Upon completion of the merger, which is expected to close during third quarter 2017 subject to regulatory and shareholder approvals, the Company will become a regional community bank with over $12 billion in total assets with a geographic footprint that will span Montana, Wyoming, South Dakota, Idaho, Oregon and Washington.

“We took an important step in laying the foundation for the continued profitable growth of our franchise through the agreement to acquire Cascade Bancorp,” said Mr. Riley. “This transaction combines two strong community bank franchises with similar approaches and commitment to superior customer service. From a financial perspective, this transaction will enable us to improve our operational efficiencies, while also providing improved opportunities for future growth by giving us a presence in robust markets in Oregon, Washington and Idaho," continued Mr. Riley. "We are well prepared to effectively manage the significant increase in scale that will result from this acquisition and we are excited about the opportunities we will have to create additional value for the shareholders of the combined company in the years ahead,” stated Mr. Riley.

ACQUISITION OF FLATHEAD BANK OF BIGFORK

The acquisition of Flathead Bank of Bigfork ("Flathead Bank"),was completed on August 12, 2016 for cash consideration of $34 million. As of the date of the acquisition, Flathead Bank had total assets of $254 million, loans of $83 million and deposits of $210 million. In conjunction with the acquisition, the Company recorded goodwill of $8 million and core deposit intangible assets of $2 million.

RESULTS OF OPERATIONS

Fourth Quarter Results:

Net Interest Income: The Company's net interest income, on a fully taxable equivalent or FTE basis, increased $3.0 million, or 4.2%, to $74.7 million during fourth quarter 2016, as compared to $71.7 million during third quarter 2016. The increase in net interest income was primarily due to higher loan yields combined with a 1.0% increase in average outstanding loans and a 4.6% increase in average outstanding investment securities quarter-over-quarter.

Interest accretion attributable to the fair valuation of acquired loans contributed $1.6 million of interest income during fourth quarter 2016, as compared to $1.4 million during third quarter 2016 and $1.3 million during fourth quarter 2015. In addition, the Company recovered previously charged-off interest of $223 thousand during fourth quarter 2016, compared to $2.0 million during third quarter 2016 and $1.0 million during fourth quarter 2015. In addition, the Company's fourth quarter net interest income included an additional $1.8 million of interest income related to non-accrual loans that was attributable to the first three quarters of 2016.

The Company's reported net interest margin ratio increased 4 basis points to 3.62% during fourth quarter 2016, as compared to 3.58% during third quarter 2016. The fourth quarter reported net interest margin ratio was positively impacted by interest accretion on acquired loans, recoveries of previously charged-off interest and the fourth quarter interest adjustment, which contributed 8 basis points, 1 basis point and 9 basis points to margin, respectively. The third quarter reported net interest margin ratio was positively impacted by interest accretion on acquired loans and recoveries of previously charged-off interest, which contributed 7 basis points and 9 basis points to margin, respectively. Exclusive of the interest accretion related to acquired loans, the impact of recoveries of charged-off interest and the fourth quarter interest adjustment, the Company's core net interest margin ratio increased 2 basis points to 3.44% during fourth quarter 2016, as compared to 3.42% during third quarter 2016.

The Company's net FTE interest income increased $5.2 million, or 7.5%, to $74.7 million during fourth quarter 2016, as compared to $69.5 million during the same period in 2015. This increase was primarily due to loan growth, combined with a shift in the mix of interest earning assets from lower-yielding cash deposits in banks into higher-yielding loans. The Company's net interest margin ratio increased 13 basis points to 3.62% during fourth quarter 2016, as compared to 3.49% during the same period in 2015. Exclusive of interest accretion related to acquired loans and the impact of recoveries of charged-off interest and the interest adjustment, the Company's net interest margin ratio increased 7 basis points to 3.44% during fourth quarter 2016, as compared to 3.37% during the same period in 2015.

Provision for Loan Losses. The Company recorded a provision for loan losses of $1.1 million during fourth quarter 2016, compared to $2.4 million during third quarter 2016, and $3.3 million during fourth quarter 2015. During fourth quarter 2016, the Company had a $1.5 million recovery of principal on a previously charged-off loan that reduced provision expense during fourth quarter.

Non-Interest Income. Total non-interest income decreased $343 thousand, or 1.0%, to $34.8 million during fourth quarter 2016, as compared to $35.2 million during third quarter 2016. Seasonal declines in mortgage banking and payment services revenues were largely offset by increases in wealth management and other service charges, commissions and fee revenues and a $400 thousand non-core recovery of prior year litigation expense.

To improve comparability between periods presented in this earnings release, the Company has included the standard costs of originating residential mortgage loans sold to secondary investors in salaries and wages expense, rather than as an offset to mortgage banking revenues. This reclassification resulted in an increase in mortgage banking revenues for each of the first three quarters of 2016 and an offsetting increase in salaries and wages expense during the same periods. This reclassification had no impact on previously reported net income.

Mortgage banking revenues decreased $2.4 million, or 21.2%, to $8.9 million during fourth quarter 2016, as compared to $11.3 million during third quarter 2016, due to seasonal declines in mortgage loan production. Mortgage loans originated for home purchases accounted for approximately 50% of fourth quarter 2016 loan production, as compared to approximately 56% during third quarter 2016, and 66% during fourth quarter 2015.

Mortgage banking revenues increased $1.6 million, or 22.4%, to $8.9 million during fourth quarter 2016, as compared to $7.3 million during fourth quarter 2015, primarily due to increased demand for refinancing loans during fourth quarter 2016, as compared to fourth quarter 2015.

Other service charges, commissions and fees increased $797 thousand, or 30.3%, to $3.4 million during fourth quarter 2016, as compared to $2.6 million during third quarter 2016, and increased $773 thousand, or 29.1%, as compared to $2.7 million during fourth quarter 2015, primarily due to fees earned on interest rate swap contracts and increases in loan servicing revenues.

Wealth management revenues increased $729 thousand, or 14.6%, to $5.7 million during fourth quarter 2016, as compared to $5.0 million during third quarter 2016, and increased $884 thousand, or 18.3%, as compared to $4.8 million during fourth quarter 2015, primarily due to estate fees and increased broker-dealer fees.

Non-Interest Expense. Non-interest expense increased $4.2 million, or 6.4%, to $69.6 million during fourth quarter 2016, as compared to $65.4 million during third quarter 2016, primarily due to increases in incentive compensation and profit sharing accruals reflective of the Company's improved performance against pre-established performance metrics and seasonally higher donations and advertising expenses. In addition, non-core acquisition and litigation-related expenses increased $427 thousand, or 35.7%, during fourth quarter 2016, as compared to the linked-quarter.

Non-interest expense increased $8.9 million, or 14.6%, as compared to $60.7 million during the same period in 2015. Included in non-interest expense were non-core acquisition expenses of $1.6 million recorded during fourth quarter 2016 and $166 thousand recorded during fourth quarter 2015. The remaining increase was primarily the result of higher incentive compensation and profit sharing accruals and increases in donations and advertising expenses. These increases were partially offset by lower group health insurance expense.

Effective January 1, 2016, the Company began capturing certain software costs separately from equipment costs, resulting in an increase of approximately $3.2 million in other expenses and a corresponding decrease in occupancy and equipment expense during fourth quarter 2016, as compared to fourth quarter 2015.

Year-Over-Year Results

Net Interest Income: Net FTE interest income increased $15.5 million to $284.2 million during 2016, as compared to $268.7 million in 2015, primarily due to growth in average loans combined with increases in yields earned on interest earning assets and a shift in the mix of interest earning assets from lower-yielding cash deposits in banks and investment securities into higher-yielding loans. Also contributing to the increase in net FTE interest income during 2016, as compared to 2015, was a shift in the mix of deposits away from higher costing time deposits into lower costing demand and savings deposits. The Company's net interest margin ratio increased 11 basis points to 3.57% during 2016, as compared to 3.46% in 2015. Exclusive of the accelerated interest accretion related to acquired loans and the impact of recoveries of charged-off interest, the Company's net interest margin ratio was 3.46% during 2016, as compared to 3.35% during 2015.

Provision for Loan Losses. During the year ended December 31, 2016, the Company recorded provisions for loan losses of $10.0 million, as compared to a $6.8 million in 2015. Increases in provisions for loan losses are reflective of loan growth.

Non-Interest Income. Non-interest income increased $15.0 million, or 12.3%, to $136.5 million in 2016, as compared to $121.5 million in 2015, primarily due to increases in total fee based revenues and non-recurring recoveries of prior year litigation expenses of $4.2 million.

Fee-based revenues increased $11.9 million, or 10.8%, to $122.0 million in 2016, as compared to $110.1 million in 2015. All categories of fee-based revenues increased in 2016, as compared to 2015, with the most significant increase occurring in mortgage banking revenues.

Mortgage banking revenues increased $7.2 million, or 24.2%, to $37.2 million in 2016, as compared to $30.0 million in 2015. Mortgage loan production was relatively flat in 2016, as compared to 2015, with most of the increase a result of gains on sales margins. Loans originated from home purchases accounted for approximately 58% of 2016 loan production, as compared to approximately 66% in 2015.

Non-Interest Expense. Non-interest expense increased $12.4 million, or 5.0%, to $261.0 million in 2016, as compared to $248.6 million in 2015, primarily due increases in salaries and wages, employee benefits, technology and OREO expenses. These increases were partially offset by decreases in non-core acquisition and litigation expense of $3.0 million.

Salaries and wages expense increased $7.2 million, or 7.1%, to $108.7 million in 2016, as compared to $101.5 million in 2015, primarily due to higher incentive compensation accruals, inflationary wage increases and higher separation pay.

Employee benefits expense increased $3.9 million, or 12.4%, to $35.2 million in 2016, as compared to $31.3 million in 2015, primarily due to higher profit sharing accruals, increases in stock based compensation and additional benefits costs resulting from the Flathead Bank acquisition.

Higher incentive compensation and profit sharing accruals during 2016 as compared to 2015 were the result of the Company's improved performance against pre-determined performance metrics. During 2016 the Company achieved pre-set performance metrics established by its Board of Directors that resulted in incentive compensation funding at 100% of targeted amounts. During 2015, the Company’s performance against the established performance metrics resulted in incentive compensation funding at approximately 70% of targeted amounts. In addition, the Company's 2016 performance supported profit sharing funding at 2.34% of the Company's 2016 net income, as compared to 1.50% of net income in 2015.

During 2016, additional technology expenditures were offset by process efficiencies allowing the Company to hold operating expenses steady while focusing on getting the right people, processes and technology systems in place for future growth.

Occupancy and equipment expenses decreased $6.1 million, or 18.3%, to $27.3 million in 2016, as compared to $33.4 million in 2015. Approximately $6.0 million of this decrease was due to the capture of certain software costs separately from equipment costs in 2016, resulting in a decrease in occupancy and equipment expense and an offsetting increase in other expenses in 2016, as compared to 2015.

Other expenses increased $8.9 million to $83.6 million in 2016, as compared to $74.7 million in 2015. Approximately $6.0 million of this increase was due to the capture of certain software costs in other expense, as discussed above. The remaining increase, due primarily to the additional operating expenses resulting from the Flathead Bank acquisition, was partially offset by one-time expenses of $806 thousand recorded in 2015 and a reduction of $1.2 million in fraud losses in 2016, as compared to 2015.

BALANCE SHEET

Total Assets. Total assets increased $90 million, or 1.0%, to $9.1 billion as of December 31, 2016, from $9.0 billion as of September 30, 2016, due to the deployment of funds generated primarily through organic growth in deposits and securities sold under repurchase agreements, into investment securities and interest bearing deposits in banks.

Loans. Total loans decreased $52 million, or less than 1.0%, to $5.5 billion as of December 31, 2016, from $5.5 billion as of September 30, 2016, with the most significant decreases occurring in commercial, agricultural and residential real estate loans. Year-over-year, total loans increased $232 million, or 4.4%, to $5.5 billion as of December 31, 2016, from $5.2 billion as of December 31, 2015, with approximately $83 million of this growth due to the acquisition of Flathead Bank in August 2016.

Commercial loans decreased $16 million, or 2.0%, to $798 million as of December 31, 2016, from $814 million as of September 30, 2016, primarily due to seasonal pay-downs of existing credit lines and the movement of loans out of the portfolio through pay-off, charge-off or foreclosure. Agricultural loans decreased $20 million, or 13.1%, to $133 million as of December 31, 2016, from $153 million as of September 30, 2016, due to seasonal reductions in operating lines that typically occur during the fourth quarter of the year. Residential real estate loans decreased $20 million, or 1.9%, to $1.0 billion as of December 31, 2016, from $1.0 billion as of September 30, 2016, primarily due to the pay-off or paydown of longer-term fixed rate loans. During fourth quarter 2016, substantially all of the Company's mortgage loan production was sold to secondary market investors.

The Company experienced organic growth in indirect consumer loans, which increased $21 million, or 2.8%, to $752 million as of December 31, 2016, from $732 million as of September 30, 2016, due to increases in loan transaction volumes within the Company's existing dealer network.

Deposits. Total deposits increased $48 million, or less than 1.0%, to $7.4 billion as of December 31, 2016, as compared to $7.3 billion as of September 30, 2016, and $287 million, or 4.1%, from $7.1 billion as of December 31, 2015. Approximately $210 million of the year-over-year deposit growth was attributable to the acquisition of Flathead Bank in August 2016. As of December 31, 2016, the mix of total deposits was 26% non-interest bearing demand, 31% interest bearing demand, 29% savings and 14% time.

Capital. At December 31, 2016, the Company exceeded all "well-capitalized" regulatory capital adequacy requirements. During fourth quarter 2016, the Company paid common stock dividends of $10 million, or $0.22 per share.

CREDIT QUALITY

Asset quality remained stable during fourth quarter 2016 with non-performing assets ending the year at $87 million, or 0.96% of total assets, an improvement from $89 million, or 0.99% of total assets as of September 30, 2016. Criticized loans remained stable at $372 million as of December 31, 2016, as compared to $370 million as of September 30, 2016. Net loan charge-offs increased to $6.1 million during fourth quarter 2016, as compared to $1.5 million during third quarter 2016, primarily due to the loans of three borrowers charged-off during the fourth quarter. These loans had adequate specific reserves assigned in late 2015 and early 2016; and therefore, did not impact the Company's fourth quarter 2016 provision for loan losses.

Accruing loans past 90 days or more decreased $4.3 million, or 53.4%, to $3.8 million as of December 31, 2016, from $8.1 million as of September 30, 2016, due to the placement of past due loans on non-accrual status.

The Company's allowance for loan losses as a percentage of period end loans decreased slightly to 1.39% as of December 31, 2016, compared to 1.47% as of September 30, 2016, and 1.46% as of December 31, 2015. This decline was primarily the result of the charge-off of loans that had been specifically reserved for in prior periods. The Company maintains its allowance for loan losses at an amount it believes is sufficient to provide for estimated losses inherent in its loan portfolio at each balance sheet date.

NON-GAAP FINANCIAL MEASURES

In addition to results presented in accordance with generally accepted accounting principles in the United States of America, or GAAP, this release contains certain non-GAAP financial measures that management uses to provide supplemental perspectives on capital adequacy, operating results, performance trends and financial condition. These non-GAAP financial measures may not be comparable to similarly titled measures reported by other companies because other companies may not calculate these non-GAAP measures in the same manner. As a result, the usefulness of these measures to investors may be limited, and they should not be considered in isolation or as a substitute for measures prepared in accordance with GAAP.

The Company adjusts certain capital adequacy measures to exclude intangible assets except mortgage servicing rights. Management believes these non-GAAP financial measures, which are intended to complement the capital ratios defined by banking regulators, are useful to investors in evaluating the Company's performance due to the importance that analysts place on these ratios and also allow investors to compare certain aspects of the Company's capitalization to other companies.

The Company also adjusts earnings and certain performance ratios to exclude certain non-core revenues and expenses, including investment securities net gains or losses, acquisition expenses consisting primarily of professional fees, and nonrecurring litigation expenses and recoveries. Management believes these non-GAAP financial measures are useful to investors in evaluating operating trends by excluding amounts which the Company views as unrelated to its normalized operations. These non-core income and expense adjustments may be presented before or net of estimated income tax expense.

In addition, the Company adjusts net income to exclude income tax expense and provision for loan losses. Management believes this non-GAAP financial measure is useful to investors in evaluating operating trends by excluding pre-tax amounts which the Company views as fluctuating widely based on economic conditions.

See the Non-GAAP Financial Measures table included herein for a reconciliation of the above described non-GAAP financial measures to their most directly comparable GAAP financial measures.
