UNAUDITED FINANCIAL RESULTS FOR THE TWELVE MONTHS AND FINAL QUARTER ENDED DECEMBER 31, 2013
The Company has prepared unaudited financial statements for the years ended December 31, 2013 and 2012. These financial statements will be examined by the Company's independent public accountants and posted on the Company's web site at www.beneficial-holdings.net.
For the twelve months ended December 31, 2013 the Company recorded revenues of $293,369 and a net loss for the twelve month period of $1,738,226, equal to a loss of eight cents per share. Approximately $1.3 million of such net loss (six cents per fully diluted share) was attributed to the effects of recording stock-based compensation in accordance with Generally Accepted Accounting Principles.

The Company recorded $83,950 of revenue for the three months ended December 31, 2013. The net loss for the period was $1,415,761, equal to a loss of six cents per share (fully diluted). Approximately $1.3 million of such net loss (six cents per fully diluted share) was attributed to the effects of recording stock based compensation in accordance with Generally Accepted Accounting Principles. The weighted average number of fully-diluted common shares for the three months ended December 31, 2013 was 22,285,543. All such amounts are unaudited.
Revenues for the three- and twelve-month periods were generated from the Company's asset management and development activities.
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.

DevOps has often been described in terms of CAMS: Culture, Automation, Measuring, Sharing. While we’ve seen a lot of focus on the “A” and even on the “M”, there are very few examples of why the “C" is equally important in the DevOps equation.

DevOps is being widely accepted (if not fully adopted) as essential in enterprise IT. But as Enterprise DevOps gains maturity, expands scope, and increases velocity, the need for data-driven decisions across teams becomes more acute.

Both SaaS vendors and SaaS buyers are going “all-in” to hyperscale IaaS platforms such as AWS, which is disrupting the SaaS value proposition. Why should the enterprise SaaS consumer pay for the SaaS service if their data is resident in adjacent AWS S3 buckets? If both SaaS sellers and buyers are using the same cloud tools, automation and pay-per-transaction model offered by IaaS platforms, then why not host the “shrink-wrapped” software in the customers’ cloud? Further, serverless computing, cl...
