Analysis of Results:

Biglari Holdings possesses investments in marketable securities directly as well as indirectly through investment partnerships.  Direct investments are carried at market value, with unrealized appreciation net of income tax effect included in a separate component of shareholders' equity.  On December 18, 2013, the amount of pre-tax unrealized investment gains was $40.4 million, which if harvested in any given quarter can materially impact and thereby distort net income figures without ramifications for the intrinsic value of the company. Investments held through investment partnerships affect our reported quarterly earnings based on their carrying value. Therefore, our operating businesses are best analyzed before the impact of investment gains/losses. As a consequence, in the preceding table we separate earnings of our operating businesses from our investment gains/losses.

In IT, we sometimes coin terms for things before we know exactly what they are and how they’ll be used. The resulting terms may capture a common set of aspirations and goals – as “cloud” did broadly for on-demand, self-service, and flexible computing. But such a term can also lump together diverse and even competing practices, technologies, and priorities to the point where important distinctions are glossed over and lost.
