This makes 2013 the best performing year since the Bank opened in 2007, and compares to a loss of ($485,000) in the previous year. The Bank was able to realize a one time accounting adjustment to its deferred tax valuation allowance of approximately $4.0 million during the year.

The Bank reported earnings per share of $1.25 for the year 2013 compared to a loss of ($.20) per share in 2012. Earnings per share for 2013 without the benefit of the deferred tax adjustment totaled $.18, compared to a loss of ($.20) in 2012.

Assets grew $23.0 million or 29.1% ending 2013 at $101.7 million compared to $78.8 million at year end 2012.

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.
In his session at @DevOpsSummit at 20th Cloud Expo, Kelly Looney, director of DevOps consulting for Skytap, showed how an incremental approach to introducing containers into complex, distributed applications results in modernization with less risk and more reward.
