BofI Holding, Inc. Announces $50 Million At-the-Market Common Stock Offering

SAN DIEGO, CA - (MARKETWIRED) - February 24, 2015 - BofI Holding, Inc. (NASDAQ: BOFI) ("BOFI"), parent company of BofI Federal Bank (the "Bank"), today announced the completion of its $50 million at-the-market common stock offering ("ATM") commenced in July 2014 and the initiation of a new $50 million ATM through the filing today of a prospectus supplement with the Securities and Exchange Commission ("SEC") under BOFI’s effective shelf registration statement filed on February 19, 2015. The $350 million shelf registration statement filed on February 19, 2015 replaces a prior shelf registration statement that was set to expire on March 27, 2015. The equity distribution agreement was executed today for the new $50 million ATM.

"The ATM offering has given us the flexibility to manage capital in a disciplined manner while maintaining a high ROE," explained Greg Garrabrants, President and Chief Executive Officer. "With a healthy loan pipeline, this new $50 million ATM will allow us to maintain the same capital allocation strategy by supplementing our organic capital generation with incremental new issuance on an as-needed basis."

Under the new equity distribution agreement BOFI may, from time to time and at its discretion offer and sell shares of its common stock having an aggregate value of up to $50 million through FBR Capital Markets & Co., Sterne Agee & Leach, Inc. and Raymond James & Associates, Inc. ("Distribution Agents"). BOFI intends to use the possible net proceeds from this offering for general corporate purposes, which may include repayments or repurchase of debt. Sales of common stock, if any, through the Distribution Agents, will be made directly on the NASDAQ Global Select Market, or in negotiated transactions through a market maker other than on an exchange, or other transactions that are deemed to be "at-the-market offerings" as defined in Rule 415 under the Securities Act of 1933 ("Act"). Sales of common stock, if any, shall be at market prices prevailing at the time of sale, at prices related to such prevailing market prices, or at negotiated prices and/or any other method permitted by the Act.

This press release does not constitute an offer to sell or a solicitation of an offer to buy, nor may there be any sale of BOFI’s common stock in any state or jurisdiction in which such an offer, solicitation or sale would be unlawful prior to registration or qualification under the securities law of any state or jurisdiction.
