New Jersey Community Bank Reports Revised Fourth Quarter and Full Year Results for 2013

FREEHOLD, NJ -- (Marketwired) -- 04/14/14 -- New Jersey Community Bank (OTCQB: NJCB) (the "Bank") reported revised and updated results for the quarter and year ended December 31, 2013. The Bank had originally reported on January 27, 2014, net loss of $212 thousand, or $(0.11) per common share and earnings of $114 thousand, or $0.06 per common share, for the three months and year ended December 31, 2013, respectively. As revised, the Bank is now reporting net loss of $1.6 million, or $(0.82) per common share and $1.2 million, or $(0.65) per common share for the three months and year ended December 31, 2013.

The change in the Bank's reported results is directly related to recording, as of December 31, 2013, a non-recurring $2.0 million litigation charge in connection with a judgment against the Bank relating to a loan on which the Bank was fully repaid. The judgment determined that the payment constituted a "preference" under the bankruptcy code. As a result of this decision, the Bank established a litigation reserve for the full $2.0 million while it is in the process for appealing the court's decision. In addition, the Bank recorded an additional provision for loan loss of $275 thousand to adequately fund the allowance for loan loss relating to increased level of non-performing loans.

Following are the Bank's restated statements of financial condition for the years ended December 31, 2013 and 2012 and the statements of operations for the quarter and year ended December 31, 2013 and 2012.

You know you need the cloud, but you’re hesitant to simply dump everything at Amazon since you know that not all workloads are suitable for cloud. You know that you want the kind of ease of use and scalability that you get with public cloud, but your applications are architected in a way that makes the public cloud a non-starter. You’re looking at private cloud solutions based on hyperconverged infrastructure, but you’re concerned with the limits inherent in those technologies.

Rob Hirschfeld’s recent work in Kubernetes operations has led to the conclusion that containers and related platforms have changed the way we should be thinking about DevOps and...

Given the popularity of the containers, further investment in the telco/cable industry is needed to transition existing VM-based solutions to containerized cloud native deployments. The networking architecture of the solution isolates the network traffic into different network planes (e.g., management, control, and media). This naturally makes support for multiple interfaces in container orchestration engines an indispensable requirement.
