OCEAN CITY, N.J., April 24, 2014 /PRNewswire/ -- Ocean Shore Holding Co. (NASDAQ: OSHC) today announced net income of $1.6 million for the quarter ended March 31, 2014 compared to $1.2 million earned in the first quarter of 2013.  Diluted earnings per share were $0.24 for the first quarter of 2014 compared to $0.18 in the first quarter of 2013. 

Ocean Shore Holding Co.

Ocean Shore Holding Co. (the "Company") is the holding company for Ocean City Home Bank (the "Bank"), a federal savings bank headquartered in Ocean City, New Jersey. The Bank operates a total of twelve full-service banking offices in eastern New Jersey.

"We are pleased to report a strong start to 2014," said Steven E. Brady, President and Chief Executive Officer.  "Net income increased 34.5% over the first quarter of 2014 and 6.8% over the prior quarter. Our loan portfolio increased 1.7% in the first quarter, which is typically a period of lower demand.  Asset quality remained excellent, as nonperforming assets declined from 0.55% at year end to 0.47% at the end of the first quarter."

Balance Sheet Review

Total assets grew $3.0 million, or 0.3%, to $1,023.0 million at March 31, 2014 from $1,020.0 million at December 31, 2013.  Loans receivable, net, increased $12.8 million, or 1.7%, to $757.6 million at March 31, 2014 from $744.8 million at December 31, 2013.  Investments and mortgage-backed securities decreased $3.9 million, or 3.1%, to $124.8 million during the first quarter of 2014.  Cash and cash equivalents decreased $5.2 million, or 5.9%, to $82.5 million at March 31, 2014 from $87.6 million at December 31, 2013.  Loan originations and other advances totaling $37.4 million were offset by payoffs and payments received of $24.6 million resulting in a $12.8 million increase in the portfolio.  The decrease in investments and mortgage-backed securities resulted from normal repayments, calls and maturities.   

Deposits grew $2.8 million, or 0.4%, to $783.4 million at March 31, 2014 from $780.6 million at December 31, 2013.  The Company continued its focus on core deposits, which increased $3.4 million, or 0.6%, to $593.7 million.  Certificates of deposit decreased $635,000, or 0.3%, to $189.7 million at March 31, 2014 compared to December 31, 2013.  Total borrowings were unchanged at $120.3 million

The provision for loan losses totaled $88,000 for the first quarter of 2014 compared to $202,000 for the first quarter of 2013 and $177,000 for the fourth quarter of 2013.  The allowance for loan losses totaled $4.2 million, or 0.56% of total loans, at March 31, 2014 compared to $4.2 million, or 0.56% of total loans, at December 31, 2013.  The Company experienced $73,000 in net charge-off activity in the first quarter of 2014 as compared to $57,000 for the first quarter of 2013 and $189,000 for the fourth quarter of 2013. 

Non-performing assets totaled $4.9 million, or 0.47% of total assets, at March 31, 2014, compared to $5.6 million, or 0.55% of total assets, at December 31, 2013.  Non-performing assets consisted of fourteen real estate residential mortgages totaling $2.6 million, one real estate commercial mortgage totaling $354,000, nine consumer equity loans totaling $661,000, two TDR non-accrual loans totaling $936,000 and four real estate owned properties totaling $340,000.

Income Statement Analysis

Net interest income increased $481,000, or 7.4%, to $7.0 million for the first quarter of 2014 compared to $6.5 million in the first quarter of 2013.  Net interest margin increased 1 basis point in the quarter ended March 31, 2014 to 3.17% versus 3.16% for the quarters ended March 31, 2013 and December 31, 2013.  The increase in net interest income in the first quarter of 2014 compared to the first quarter of 2013 was the result of a decrease in the average cost of interest-bearing liabilities of 13 basis points to 0.94%, a decrease in average interest-bearing liabilities of $26.1 million and an increase in average interest-earning assets of $56.7 million offset by a decrease of 21 basis points in the average yield on interest-earning assets to 4.05%.

Other income decreased $96,000, or 8.7%, to $1.0 million for the first quarter of 2014 compared to $1.1 million in the first quarter of 2013.  The decrease in other income resulted from decreases in deposit account fees and cash surrender value of life insurance offset by increases in debit card commissions. 

Other expenses decreased $24,000, or 0.4%, to $5.4 million during the first quarter of 2014 compared to the first quarter of 2013.  Decreases in marketing, REO and other expenses of $130,000 were offset by increases in salaries and benefits, occupancy and equipment and FDIC insurance of $106,000

IoT is rapidly becoming mainstream as more and more investments are made into the platforms and technology.

There are so many connected products already in place today with many hundreds more on the h...
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.

When shopping for a new data processing platform for IoT solutions, many development teams want to be able to test-drive options before making a choice. Yet when evaluating an IoT solution, it’s simply not feasible to do so at scale with physical devices.

When dealing with multiple application or transport protocols, you would be...
