PRNewswire-FirstCall
LAFAYETTE, La.

IBERIABANK Corporation , the holding company of the 119-year-old IBERIABANK (http://www.iberiabank.com/ ), announced earnings of $8.0 million for the quarter ended March 31, 2006, a 10% increase over the same period in 2005, and fully diluted earnings per share ("EPS") of $0.81 for the first quarter of 2006, an 8% increase over the same quarter of 2005. The reported EPS for the first quarter of 2006 of $0.81 exceeded the consensus analyst estimate by a penny per share.

  Highlights For The Quarter Ended March 31, 2006

   * Average deposits increased $118 million, or 5%, between the fourth
     quarter of 2005 and the first quarter of 2006 ("linked quarter basis").
     Similarly, period-end deposits climbed $83 million, or 4%, between
     December 31, 2005 and March 31, 2006.

   * The Company experienced increased liquidity during the quarter.  Liquid
     investments and bonds with maturities less than three months totaled
     $79 million at March 31, 2006 and expanded further to $92 million at
     April 21, 2006.

   * Asset quality and coverage statistics continue to remain favorable.
     The Company's loan loss provision was nearly six times the $79,000 in
     net charge-offs recorded during the first quarter of 2006.  Net charge-
     offs declined from 0.13% of average loans in the fourth quarter of 2005
     to 0.02% in the first quarter of 2006.

   * The Company opened four new full service branch offices since year-end
     2005, in Baton Rouge, Houma, the Elmwood section of New Orleans, and
     LaPlace.  The opening of these four offices, in combination with the
     Mandeville and Broussard offices opened in late 2005, results in a
     total of six new offices opened under the Company's branch expansion
     initiative.  The estimated net after-tax cost of the branch expansion
     initiative was $0.03 per share in the first quarter of 2006.

Total assets climbed to $2.9 billion, deposits exceeded $2.3 billion and loans reached $2.0 billion at March 31, 2006, for increases of 3%, 4%, and 2%, respectively, compared to December 31, 2005. The Company continued to experience strong deposit growth for the third consecutive quarter. The deposit growth was concentrated primarily in the Acadiana and Northshore markets, and was nearly evenly split between the retail and commercial segments.

Total loans increased $37 million, or 2%, compared to December 31, 2005. During the period, commercial loans climbed $51 million, or 5%, mortgage loans decreased $2 million, or less than 1%, and consumer loans declined $11 million, or 2%. The decline in mortgages was driven by a $5 million decline in residential construction and land development loans, which accounted for only 1% of total loans at March 31, 2006, well below peer averages. Unlike many peer institutions, the Company achieved exceptional loan growth over the last several years in non-construction loan categories.

Daryl G. Byrd, President and CEO of IBERIABANK Corporation remarked, "There exists tremendous demand for quality housing in the areas affected by Hurricanes Katrina and Rita. Given the anticipated need for residential rebuilding in the affected areas, we expect residential construction lending to increase significantly over the next several years, in a manner consistent with our historical underwriting guidelines." The decline in the consumer loan portfolio was driven by a $6 million reduction in the home equity product and a $2 million decline in indirect automobile loan volume between December 31, 2005 and March 31, 2006.

The tax-equivalent net interest margin edged down four basis points on a linked quarter basis, after increasing 10 basis points in the fourth quarter of 2005. The average yield on earning assets was 5.86% in the first quarter of 2006, a 12 basis point increase on a linked quarter basis. Similarly, the cost of interest bearing liabilities was 2.71%, an increase of 18 basis points. Average noninterest bearing deposits edged up $2 million on a linked quarter basis, following a $48 million increase in the preceding quarter. Growth in higher cost deposits was the primary source of the four basis point decline in the margin in the first quarter.

Tax-equivalent net interest income improved $0.5 million, or 2%, on a linked quarter basis. The improvement in net interest income was primarily the result of average earning asset growth of $107 million, or 4%, on a linked quarter basis.

Byrd noted, "We are very proud of the tremendous expansion of our franchise, in terms of balance sheet growth, recruiting, branch openings, and most importantly, client growth." Byrd continued, "The rebuilding process continues in New Orleans, though it is a difficult task that will require many years. We strive to assist our clients rebuild their lives and finance their expansion opportunities. Our branch expansion initiative will assist in reaching our existing client base and provide opportunities to develop prospective clients as well."

Recruiting And Branch Expansion Initiative Update

The Company previously reported personnel costs associated with the 31 strategic recruits equated to $0.5 million on a pre-tax basis in the fourth quarter of 2005, or $0.03 per share after-tax. Revenues associated with this expanded staff are anticipated to materialize in 2006 and beyond. As a result, the financial impact associated with the recruits will likely soften over time as these recruits build their loan and deposit portfolios. The Company believes it has developed a strong loan origination pipeline and continues to attract high quality talent.

On September 16, 2005, the Company announced an ambitious branch expansion initiative to purchase land, deploy modular facilities, purchase and install equipment, and staff and train associates for 12 new modular branch units in communities in South Louisiana. While the completion dates for a few of the facilities were delayed as a result of site modifications, permitting delays, plan changes, and additional branch expansion opportunities, the Company demonstrated significant progress since year-end 2005. Five out of six recently opened offices are modular facilities, which are full service and staffed similar to traditional "brick and mortar" facilities. Four additional facilities are under construction, in Slidell, Lafayette, Baton Rouge and Monroe. The Company has also purchased, or has contracts to purchase, land in Covington, Metairie, and the Baton Rouge area. The net cost of the branch expansion on first quarter 2006 EPS was $0.03, compared to $0.01 in the fourth quarter of 2005 and considerably less than the $0.05 previously forecasted.

To date, the Company has not experienced difficulties in recruiting talent in association with the branch expansion initiative, despite significant labor shortages in selected areas. Many of the Company's markets are experiencing the effects of favorable economic conditions, escalated energy prices, and extensive rebuilding work in association with Hurricanes Katrina and Rita.

Expectations For 2006

On November 22, 2005, the Company stated its expectations for the full year 2006 EPS to be in the range of $3.54 to $3.64, excluding the cost of adoption of SFAS 123R regarding expensing stock option plans. The Company anticipates application of SFAS 123R will reduce annual earnings in 2006 by approximately $0.2 million on a pre-tax basis, or $0.02 per share on an after- tax basis.

The Company's comfort range for 2006 EPS remains in the range of $3.54 to $3.64, excluding the cost of adoption of SFAS 123R (or $3.52 to $3.62 including SFAS 123R). This comfort range includes the costs anticipated with the Company's branch expansion initiative. Throughout 2006, the negative impact of the branch initiative on EPS is expected to decrease on a gradual basis as loan and deposit volumes accelerate throughout the year. EPS in the second quarter of 2006 is expected to be negatively affected by approximately $0.06 per share, on an after-tax basis, as a result of the branch expansion initiative.

The EPS comfort ranges provided today are based on management's current information, estimates and assumptions. One major assumption is a sustained flattening of the yield curve in 2006 as indicated in forward interest rate curves. Another major assumption is management's projected deposit growth of approximately $300 million attributable to Hurricanes Katrina and Rita, though actual levels may be materially higher or lower than projected levels. The Company also continues to project strong double-digit EPS growth in 2007.

  Additional Highlights For The Quarter Ended March 31, 2006

   * Net income in the first quarter of 2006 totaled $8.0 million, up 10%
     compared to one year ago and 2% on a linked quarter basis. Return on
     average assets ("ROA") was 1.13% for the first quarter of 2006.
     Similarly, return on average equity ("ROE") was 12.17% and return on
     average tangible equity was 19.92%.

   * Nonperforming assets ("NPAs") increased $0.7 million, or 11%, between
     December 31, 2005 and March 31, 2006, but decreased 15% compared to one
     year ago.  NPAs as a percentage of total assets were 0.23% at March 31,
     2006 compared to 0.21% at year-end 2005, and 0.29% one year ago.
     Coverage ratios of nonperforming loans and nonperforming assets at
     March 31, 2006 were 594% and 574%, respectively.

   * During the first quarter of 2006, the Company recorded less than $0.1
     million in asset sale gains compared to $0.6 million in the fourth
     quarter of 2005 (the fourth quarter gain was associated with the sale
     of excess properties). Similarly, mortgage loan sale gains totaled $0.4
     million, down slightly from $0.5 million in the fourth quarter of 2005.

   * Total shareholders' equity increased $5 million, or 2%, between year-
     end 2005 and March 31, 2006.  Average equity climbed $7 million, or 3%,
     on a linked quarter basis. At March 31, 2006, the Company's equity-to-
     assets ratio was 9.18% compared to 9.24% at year-end 2005 and 9.73% one
     year ago.  Book value per share increased $0.10 during the quarter to
     $27.70 at March 31, 2006.

   * Tier 1 leverage ratio was 7.59% at March 31, 2006, down slightly from
     7.65% at December 31, 2005. At March 31, 2006, the Company's Tier 1
     risk-based capital ratio was 10.62%, and the total risk-based capital
     ratio was 11.88%.  The Company purchased 38,419 shares during the first
     quarter of 2006 under the repurchase program authorized on May 4, 2005,
     at an average cost of $55.20 per share.  Approximately 117,000 shares
     remain authorized to be purchased under that program.

   * On March 23, 2006, the Company declared a quarterly cash dividend of
     $0.28 per share, an increase of 25% compared to the same quarter last
     year.

  Investment Portfolio And Interest Rate Risk

Average investment portfolio volume increased $55 million on a linked quarter basis to $616 million. On a period-end basis, the investment portfolio climbed to $669 million from $573 million at year-end 2005. The investment portfolio equated to 23% of total assets, up from 20% at December 31, 2005. The Company has experienced a dramatic shift in funding as a result of deposit flows exceeding loan growth. During the first quarter of 2006, the Company continued to deploy investment cash flows into bonds with maturities of three months or less, high quality short-term commercial paper, discount notes, and other liquid instruments. The Company eventually expects to redeploy the excess liquidity into higher yielding loans in the near future.

The Company's investment portfolio shortened slightly during the quarter. At March 31, 2006, the portfolio had a modified duration of 3.2 years equivalent to the level at December 31, 2005. The Company's investment portfolio has very limited extension risk. Based on modeling at March 31, 2006, a parallel and instantaneous 300 basis point increase in interest rates would extend the portfolio by only 0.2 years. At current projected speeds, the portfolio is expected to generate approximately $83 million in cash flows in each of the next four years plus an additional $60 million of short-term liquid investments. The portfolio had an unrealized loss of $12.6 million at March 31, 2006, compared to $9.5 million at December 31, 2005. The book yield on the investment portfolio increased 11 basis points on a linked quarter basis. Bond premium amortization edged down in the first quarter to $0.4 million, compared to $0.5 million in the fourth quarter of 2005 and $0.6 million in the three prior quarters.

The Company regularly reviews the influence of interest rates on the Company's profitability and earnings growth prospects. Asset/liability management modeling at March 31, 2006, indicated the Company's interest rate risk position is fairly balanced. A 100 basis point instantaneous and parallel upward shift in interest rates would be estimated to increase net interest income over 12 months by 4%. Similarly, a 100 basis point decrease in interest rates would be expected to increase net interest income by 1%. The influence of a flattening yield curve, using the forward curve as a guide, would have an insignificant impact on net interest income compared to the base case scenario of no change in interest rates.

Asset Quality

The Company continues to monitor progress of clients affected by the Hurricanes. No material change in the condition of aggregate client exposure or risk exists compared to prior reports. The ratio of net charge-offs to average loans was a record Company low 0.02% in the first quarter compared to 0.13% in the fourth quarter of 2005, and 0.13% one year ago.

The Company believes that it uses a conservative definition of NPAs. The Company considers NPAs to include nonaccruing loans, accruing loans more than 90 days past due, foreclosed assets, and Other Real Estate Owned. NPAs amounted to $6.7 million at March 31, 2006, up $0.7 million compared to December 31, 2005. NPAs equated to 0.23% of total assets at March 31, 2006, up slightly compared to 0.21% at year-end 2005, and down from 0.29% one year ago. The allowance for loan losses was 1.97% at March 31, 2006 essentially unchanged compared to 1.98% at year-end 2005, and equated to 574% of NPAs. Loans past due 30 days or more (including nonaccruing loans) represented 0.64% of total loans, up slightly compared to 0.59% at year-end 2005, but down from 0.79% one year ago. Various segments of the Company's loan portfolio demonstrated exceptionally low levels of loans past due 30 days or more, including indirect automobile (0.79% of loans), consumer (0.88%), commercial (0.29%), and credit card (1.77%).

Operating Results

Tax-equivalent net interest income increased $0.5 million, or 2%, on a linked quarter basis. The tax-equivalent net interest margin declined four basis points, but average earning assets climbed $107 million, or 4%, on a linked quarter basis. Average loan growth of $36 million accounted for only one-third of the growth in average earnings assets during the quarter.

Noninterest income in the first quarter of 2006 declined $0.4 million, or 6%, on a linked quarter basis. In the fourth quarter of 2005, the Company recorded $0.6 million in gains on the sale of five excess properties, while asset sale gains in the first quarter of 2006 totaled less than $0.1 million.

Residential mortgage loan sale gains declined slightly on a linked quarter basis to $0.4 million compared to $0.5 million in the fourth quarter of 2005. The volume of mortgage loan originations totaled $49 million in the first quarter of 2006 compared to $52 million in the fourth quarter of 2005. The pipeline of mortgage loans in process at March 31, 2006 was $84 million compared to $56 million at year-end 2005. During the first quarter of 2006, the Company sold into the secondary market $5 million in residential mortgage loans recently released from construction that were held in the loan portfolio. This $5 million level equates to the level in the fourth quarter of 2005, but was down considerably compared to $13 million one year ago. These loan sales were part of the Company's stated plans to sell into the secondary market recently originated, mortgage production, including permanent mortgage loans coming out of construction. Unlike many competitors, the Company does not originate and portfolio exotic retail mortgage products, such as negative amortization and option ARMs.

Noninterest expenses increased $0.2 million, or 1% on a linked quarter basis. In the fourth quarter of 2005, the Company experienced a $0.4 million increase in hospitalization costs as a result of increased medical claims. A reversion to more historical levels in this category during the first quarter of 2006 was offset by the full-quarter costs associated with recently hired strategic recruits. Increases on a linked quarter basis in business development expense and Louisiana Franchise and Shares Tax expense (consistent with historical trends for the first quarter in many prior years) were offset by lower professional fees and other expenses. No significant hurricane- related costs were incurred during the first quarter of 2006.

Based on a closing stock price of $58.01 per share on April 24, 2006, the Company's common stock traded at a price-to-earnings ratio of 16.3 times current consensus analyst estimates of $3.56 per fully diluted EPS for 2006 and 14.2 times the average analyst 2007 estimate of $4.08. This price also equates to 2.09 times March 31, 2006 book value per share of $27.70. On March 23, 2006, the Company declared a quarterly cash dividend of $0.28 per share, payable to shareholders of record as of March 31, 2006. This dividend level equated to an annualized dividend rate of $1.12 per share and an indicated dividend yield of 1.93%.

This press release contains financial information determined by methods other than in accordance with GAAP. The Company's management uses these non- GAAP measures in their analysis of the Company's performance. These measures typically adjust GAAP performance measures to exclude the effects of the amortization of intangibles and include the tax benefit associated with revenue items that are tax-exempt.
