The holding company of Capitol Federal Savings said Monday its net income for the first nine months of fiscal year 2014 increased nearly 8 percent from a year ago.
Topeka-based Capitol Federal Financial said in a news release that net income for the nine months ended June 30 was $57.5 million compared with $53.3 million in the same period in 2013.
It attributed the higher net income to lower income taxes and a decrease in interest expense on lower Federal Home Loan Bank borrowings.
Capitol Federal Financial’s fiscal year ends Sept. 30.
Capitol Federal Savings operates eight branches in the Wichita area.
