IndyMac Bancorp Inc., Pasadena, Calif., has reported earnings of $80 million ($1.18 per share) for the first quarter, up 26% from $63 million ($0.98 per share) a year earlier, and record mortgage volume of $20 billion.IndyMac touted the record loan production, which was up 72% from the level of a year earlier, and said it had doubled its market share to 3.89%. "In the first quarter, we deployed a total of $509 million of our capital in our mortgage production divisions, an 83% increase over last year," said Michael W. Perry, IndyMac's chairman and chief executive officer. "However, given mortgage industry margin pressures and our lower-margin conduit operations comprising a higher percentage of our production volume, the [return on equity] on this capital declined from 97% last year to 51% this quarter, still a strong return on our capital." The mortgage pipeline totaled a record $10.4 billion as of March 31, up 39% from that of a year earlier, the company said.
