Severn Bancorp, Inc. Announces First Quarter Earnings

ANNAPOLIS, Md., April 16, 2014 /PRNewswire/ -- Severn Bancorp, Inc., (Nasdaq: SVBI) parent company of Severn Savings Bank, FSB ("Severn"), today announced net income of $867,000 or $.03 per share for the first quarter of 2014, an increase of approximately 40% compared to net income of $621,000 or $.03 per share for first quarter of 2013. Results reported also represent a significant increase in earnings compared to a net loss of $5,470,000 or $(.58) per share for the fourth quarter of 2013.

Hyatt, president and chief executive officer. Mr. Hyatt continued, "Severn made decisions to position the bank for success as one of the few remaining local community banks, and this is a first step in the right direction. We are now dedicated to expanding technology and service offerings rather than dealing with problems. Severn is proud to continue the tradition of offering the personal service that residents and business owners in Anne Arundel County have come to expect from a community bank."

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’re looking at private cloud solutions based on hyperconverged infrastructure, but you’re concerned with the limits inherent in those technologies.
