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.

A solution to the deployment and runtime challenges of an application? Why would anyone using a PaaS then need an automation engine with workflow ...

Eighty percent of a data scientist’s time is spent gathering and cleaning up data, and 80% of all data is unstructured and almost never analyzed. Cognitive computing, in combination with Big Data, is changing the equation by creating data reservoirs and using natural language processing to enable analysis of unstructured data sources. This is impacting every aspect of the analytics profession from how data is mined (and by whom) to how it is delivered. This is not some futuristic vision: it's ha...
The cloud promises new levels of agility and cost-savings for Big Data, data warehousing and analytics. But it’s challenging to understand all the options – from IaaS and PaaS to newer services like HaaS (Hadoop as a Service) and BDaaS (Big Data as a Service). In her session at @BigDataExpo at @ThingsExpo, Hannah Smalltree, a director at Cazena, will provide an educational overview of emerging “as-a-service” options for Big Data in the cloud.

In his session at DevOps Summit, Bernard Sanders, Chief Technology Officer at CloudBolt Software, explored the latest tools including Puppet, Chef, Docker, and CMPs needed to...
Let’s face it, embracing new storage technologies, capabilities and upgrading to new hardware often adds complexity and increases costs. In his session at 18th Cloud Expo, Seth Oxenhorn, Vice President of Business Development & Alliances at FalconStor, will discuss how a truly heterogeneous software-defined storage approach can add value to legacy platforms and heterogeneous environments. The result reduces complexity, significantly lowers cost, and provides IT organizations with improved effi...
It's easy to assume that your app will run on a fast and reliable network. The reality for your app's users, though, is often a slow, unreliable network with spotty coverage. What happens when the network doesn't work, or when the device is in airplane mode? You get unhappy, frustrated users. An offline-first app is an app that works, without error, when there is no network connection.
