First Internet Bancorp INBK

Raising funds for more loans…? They are also selling at the market shares, ATM.

First Internet Bancorp (the “Company”) (INBK), the parent company of First Internet Bank (the “Bank”) (, today announced the pricing of an underwritten offering of 895,955 shares of the Company’s common stock under a previously filed and effective shelf registration statement at a price of $24.00 per share. After deducting the underwriting discount and estimated offering expenses, the Company expects to receive net proceeds of approximately $20.1 million. The offering is expected to close on or about May 26, 2016, subject to customary closing conditions. Sandler O’Neill + Partners, L.P. is serving as sole underwriter for the offering.

The Company expects to use the net proceeds of this offering for general corporate purposes, which may include contributing capital to the Bank to support organic growth and repaying or redeeming existing indebtedness. The Company does not have any immediate plans, arrangements or understandings related to any material acquisition……



To my untrained eye this looks like the shares are getting diluted like 20%…but the stock is up today, so what am I missing?

They didn’t just issue shares and get nothing in return. They received the cash proceeds. So theoretically it’s a wash, but it all depends on what they do with the cash (i.e. what kind of return they get when they use it).

But when others dilute - as SSW announced yesterday 5.75MM shares worth - the share price rightly plummets.

Still curious what’s going on with INBK if anyone has any insight.

I’m curious too.

I’m wondering why the return on equity is so low. When and how are they going to leverage the equity they have now? Why did they need to raise more equity capital? Do they really have a good business model?

The stock is bouncing because the overhang of the offering is over. It would be nice if mgt gave more detail about these issues, especially what they are going to do with the cash.

I’m wondering what they need to succeed. Is it higher interest rates? Or more volume (loans and deposits)? Both? Something else?
