Highlights

  • Net income was $1,099,000 and $2,159,000 for the three and six months ended June 30, 2014 compared to $1,374,000 and $2,566,000 for the same periods in 2013.

  • Diluted earnings per share were $.31 per share and $.61 per share for the three and six months ended June 30, 2014 compared to $.40 per share and $.69 per share for the same periods in 2013.

"During the first six months of 2014, the Bank experienced a decline in its mortgage originations, despite maintaining its market share, due to lower levels of refinancing, as well as purchasing activity across our market area. This decline in originations has unfavorably affected our level of noninterest income," said Thomas M. Carr, President and COO.

Mr. Carr continued, "We have maintained our net interest margin, limited our operating expenses, increased deposit fee income, and continue to have strong asset quality."

Net Income

Net income totaled $2,159,000 for the six months ended June 30, 2014, a decrease of $407,000 or 16% from the $2,566,000 of net income recorded for the same period in 2013. This decrease was the net result of a decrease in noninterest income of $341,000, an increase in tax expense of $237,000, and an increase in noninterest expense of $46,000, offset by an increase in net interest income of $81,000 and a decrease in the provision for loan losses of $136,000.

Net income totaled $1,099,000 for the three months ended June 30, 2014, a decrease of $275,000 or 20% from the $1,374,000 recorded for the same period in 2013.

Enterprises are adopting Kubernetes to accelerate the development and the delivery of cloud-native applications. However, sharing a Kubernetes cluster between members of the same team can be challenging. And, sharing clusters across multiple teams is even harder. Kubernetes offers several constructs to help implement segmentation and isolation. However, these primitives can be complex to understand and apply. As a result, it’s becoming common for enterprises to end up with several clusters. Thi...
Data scientists must access high-performance computing resources across a wide-area network. To achieve cloud-based HPC visualization, researchers must transfer datasets and visualization results efficiently. HPC clusters now compute GPU-accelerated visualization in the cloud cluster. To efficiently display results remotely, a high-performance, low-latency protocol transfers the display from the cluster to a remote desktop. Further, tools to easily mount remote datasets and efficiently transfer...
Though cloud is the future of enterprise computing, a smooth transition of legacy applications and systems is critical for seamless business operations. IT professionals are eager to start leveraging the cost, scale and other benefits of cloud, but with massive investments already in place in existing infrastructure and a number of compliance and resource hurdles, it can be challenging to move to a cloud-based infrastructure.
SYS-CON Events announced today that Avere Systems, a leading provider of enterprise storage for the hybrid cloud, will exhibit at SYS-CON's 21st International Cloud Expo®, which will take place on Oct 31 - Nov 2, 2017, at the Santa Clara Convention Center in Santa Clara, CA. Avere delivers a more modern architectural approach to storage that doesn't require the overprovisioning of storage capacity to achieve performance, overspending on expensive storage media for inactive data or the overbui...
Containers are rapidly finding their way into enterprise data centers, but change is difficult. How do enterprises transform their architecture with technologies like containers without losing the reliable components of their current solutions? In his session at @DevOpsSummit at 21st Cloud Expo, Tony Campbell, Director, Educational Services at CoreOS, will explore the challenges organizations are facing today as they move to containers and go over how Kubernetes applications can deploy with lega...
