No member of management or their beneficiaries has engaged in any sale or purchase of the Company's common shares or equity-related securities during the twelve months ended December 31, 2013.
Operating results for the comparable periods in 2012 are not relevant due to the previously-announced discontinuance of certain operations and changes in accounting methods.
2013 ACTIVITY SUMMARY
Summing up 2013 activity, Gregory N. Senkevitch, Beneficial's Chairman, President and CEO said: "Our Project Solutions business provided all of the Company's revenues for 2013. The Company recorded revenue from our co-development assignment at 1355 First Avenue and from our asset management engagements. Aside from the effects of recording stock based compensation in accordance with GAAP, the Company recorded a loss of two cents per fully diluted share. Additionally, it should be noted the Company has not recorded a credit for federal and state income taxes to offset such losses on a GAAP basis."
Senkevitch added: "These initial activities of our Project Solutions operation have uniquely positioned the Company to be recognized as an innovative service provider within the 'built' environment. Over the past year, our most significant project, 1355 First Avenue (www.charlesnyc.com) -- one of the few new construction projects on Manhattan's highly desired Upper East Side -- has garnered accolades for its design, sales activity and unique market positioning. Our BFHJ Project Solutions management team is proud to have originated this ground breaking development back in 2007 and is privileged to be playing a role in its delivery. The Company's role in this project is small; however, it indicates the business that Project Solutions is pursuing."
Commenting on 2013's acquisition activity, Senkevitch said: "Restructuring the Green RG transaction to a licensing arrangement recognizes the synergies that we can create within our existing management team and its extended network of professional contacts. During our due diligence process, we recognized that both Beneficial's and Green RG's interests were better served by obtaining access to Green RG's technology on a favorable pricing basis and accessing proprietary situations where the technology could be utilized to maximize our Company's profits. Over the next several weeks we expect to conclude the Green Econometrics acquisition (www.greenecon.net) and to further outline our plans to staff up our Energy Solutions business and roll out its business plan."
INVESTOR CALL SET
Senkevitch also announced the Company's second investor call: "With the scope of the changes to the Company's capital structure and business platform during 2013 and the expectation that we will be able to announce one or more potential acquisitions and management team additions over the next several weeks, a second investor call is warranted. This call will provide an interactive forum that will allow for the continued discussion of the Company's strategy and communicate management's accomplishments and expectations."
The investor call will start promptly at 11:00 AM EDT on Wednesday, April 23, 2014. The toll free dial in number for United States and Canada is (888) 481-2844. The international toll number is (719) 325-2144 (not toll free). For either number please enter pass code 6980950 when prompted. Allow at least 15 minutes prior to the call for the registration process. Investor questions will be answered as time allows.
"We are building a company that combines experienced, principal-based talent with cutting edge technology and capital-based solutions. Over the next several weeks we will continue to outline additional service platforms and management talent that will expand our basket of services for the 'built' environment. We believe that this basket of services greatly exceeds those provided by traditional real estate service providers, will allow us to target unique value-added situations in the 'built' environment and will enable us to achieve enhanced revenue streams from multiple engagements with repeat clients and customers. This is how we will 'Create Value from Market Knowledge,'" Senkevitch concluded.

Last week, while in San Francisco, I used the Uber app and service four times. All four experiences were great, although one of the drivers stopped for 30 seconds and then left as I was walking up to the car. He must have realized I was a blogger. None the less, the next car was just a minute away and I suffered no pain. In this article, my colleague, Ved Sen, Global Head, Advisory Services Social, Mobile and Sensors at Cognizant shares his experiences and insights.

We are reaching the end of the beginning with WebRTC and real systems using this technology have begun to appear. One challenge that faces every WebRTC deployment (in some form or another) is identity management. For example, if you have an existing service – possibly built on a variety of different PaaS/SaaS offerings – and you want to add real-time communications you are faced with a challenge relating to user management, authentication, authorization, and validation. Service providers will want to use their existing identities, but these will have credentials already that are (hopefully) irreversibly encoded. In his session at Internet of @ThingsExpo, Peter Dunkley, Technical Director at Acision, will look at how this identity problem can be solved and discuss ways to use existing web identities for real-time communication.

While great strides have been made relative to the video aspects of remote collaboration, audio technology has basically stagnated. Typically all audio is mixed to a single monaural stream and emanates from a single point, such as a speakerphone or a speaker associated with a video monitor. This leads to confusion and lack of understanding among participants especially regarding who is actually speaking. Spatial teleconferencing introduces the concept of acoustic spatial separation between conference participants in three dimensional space. This has been shown to significantly improve comprehension and conference efficiency.

The Internet of Things is tied together with a thin strand that is known as time. Coincidentally, at the core of nearly all data analytics is a timestamp. When working with time series data there are a few core principles that everyone should consider, especially across datasets where time is the common boundary. In his session at Internet of @ThingsExpo, Jim Scott, Director of Enterprise Strategy & Architecture at MapR Technologies, will discuss single-value, geo-spatial, and log time series data. By focusing on enterprise applications and the data center, he will use OpenTSDB as an example to explain some of these concepts including when to use different storage models.
