(BNB-TSX Venture) BAM Investments Announces Third Quarter 2012 Results

TORONTO, ONTARIO -- (Marketwire) -- 11/28/12 -- BAM Investments Corp. (TSX VENTURE:BNB) today announced its financial results for the third quarter ended September 30, 2012.

BAM Investments Corp. recorded comprehensive income, which consists of net income and other comprehensive income, of $18.7 million for the three months ended September 30, 2012 which, in turn, increased the company's net book value by $0.25 per share to $19.13 per share. Other comprehensive income includes $13.8 million of after-tax unrealized gains on the company's investment portfolio, primarily as a result of a $0.25 per share increase in the market price of the company's Brookfield Asset Management shares to $33.90 per share.

The company recorded net income of $4.8 million ($0.07 per common share) for the three months ended September 30, 2012 compared to a $2.8 million loss ($0.04 per common share) for the prior year comparable period. The increase in net income in the current period was primarily the result of an increase in equity accounted income as a publicly listed fund held by the company recorded increased valuation gains.

      share of cash distributions and non-cash changes in value to better   
      reflect the amount of investment income generated by the investment   
      portfolio.

It is ironic, but perhaps not unexpected, that many organizations who want the benefits of using an Agile approach to deliver software use a waterfall approach to adopting Agile practices: they form plans, they set milestones, and they measure progress by how many teams they have engaged.

The problem is that to get the results they want, they have to ch...

Wooed by the promise of faster innovation, lower TCO, and greater agility, businesses of every shape and size have embraced the cloud at every layer of the IT stack – from apps to file sharing to infrastructure.

Such cloud investments have delivered measurable benefits. But they’ve also resulted in some unintended side-effects: complexity and risk. ...

When growing capacity and power in the data center, the architectural trade-offs between server scale-up vs. scale-out continue to be debated. Both approaches are valid: scale-out adds multiple, smaller servers running in a distributed computing model, while scale-up adds fewer, more powerful servers that are capable of running larger workloads. It’s worth noting that there are additional, unique advantages that scale-up architectures offer. One big advantage is large memory and compute capacity...
