Capitol Federal Financial said Wednesday that it saw a slight increase in net income in its first quarter earnings.
The Topeka-based parent of Capitol Federal Savings said net income for its first quarter, which ended Dec. 31, was $17.8 million compared, with $17.6 million in the first quarter of 2012.
Capitol Federal’s fiscal year ends on Sept. 30.
The company said the increase was due largely to a decrease in expenses related to its employee stock ownership plan.
Its assets were $9.1 billion at the end of the quarter.
