INTERFIRST BANKCORP, INC. REPORTS EARNINGS

 INTERFIRST BANKCORP, INC. REPORTS EARNINGS
 ANN ARBOR, Mich., July 24, /PRNewswire/ -- InterFirst Bankcorp, Inc.


(NASDAQ: INFB), the parent company for InterFirst Federal Savings Bank, today reported record six-month net earnings of $2,680,000 or $2.85 per share for the six months ended June 30, 1992, a 337-percent increase in earnings compared to $613,000 or $0.67 per share for the comparable six months ended June 30, 1991.
 "Earnings for the first six months of 1992 are a result of continued increases in core income, resulting from improved interest rate spreads and increased loan servicing fee income, and from the sale of approximately $300 million in loan servicing, which was made possible by a dramatic increase in loan production during the period," Chairman Stanley Rhodes noted. "We are extremely pleased with our continued growth in loan production and earnings, which reflects InterFirst's focused emphasis on mortgage banking and traditional residential lending."
 During the first six months of 1992, InterFirst originated or acquired $543 million of residential mortgage loans throughout the country as compared to $261 million during the same period in 1991. This growth reflects both expansion of InterFirst's marketing efforts and substantial refinancing activity in the first quarter of 1992," noted Rhodes. "While new lows in mortgage rates have appeared to have stimulated a new wave of refinancings in the past 30 days, the bank intends to resume its aggressive national marketing efforts aimed at producing new mortgage loans."
 As a result of increased loan production, InterFirst was able to increase its portfolio of mortgage loans serviced for others 34 percent from $511 million at Dec. 31, 1991, to $687 million as of June 30, 1992, net of the sale of over $300 million of servicing during this period. "Our portfolio of loan servicing for others has increased 73 percent since June 1991. This is significant because servicing fee income represents core non-interest income and helps to stabilize net income of the bank," Rhodes commented.
 Net interest income increased to $3,143,000 for the six months ended June 30, 1992, as compared to $2,275,000 for the same period in 1991. This growth reflects the bank's increased interest rate spread from 1.83 percent at June 30, 1991, to 2.58 percent at June 30, 1992. Deposits of the bank were $109 million at June 30, 1992, a 12-percent increase from the $97 million at Dec. 31, 1991.
 InterFirst remains in compliance with all regulatory capital standards. Its tangible and core capital levels are 5.70 percent and its risk-based capital ratio is 12.81 percent.
