Jamcracker, Inc., a leading provider of Cloud Services Brokerage (CSB) solution, today announced that it has added full support for infrastructure as a service (IaaS) Cloud Management Platform (CMP) functionality for multi-cloud and hybrid cloud services environments. Hence, Jamcracker is the first platform in the industry to unify cloud services management needs for SaaS, PaaS and now IaaS, offering a holistic cloud services enablement solution across all flavors of cloud services. With the enterprise organizations transforming traditional IT to cloud based IT-as-a-service (ITaaS) model, there is a critical need to unify many of the cloud services management functions such as aggregation, onboarding, catalog, self-service fulfillment, access management, billing, invoicing, settlements, SLA monitoring, reporting and services analytics. Offering a single pane of glass and consistent user experience in managing cloud services of all flavors is important to make IT productive. Driven by customer needs, Jamcracker Platform has evolved from being a cloud broker to now a complete cloud services lifecycle manager. Gartner’s 2016 CMP Market Guide for CMP outlines following functional requirements to address IaaS management customer needs. Jamcracker Platform addressed these by adding following key CMP features to existing cloud brokerage platform: Mahendra Soneji, Vice President of Product Management and Customer Success at Jamcracker said: “The key value proposition of a CMP is enabling multi-cloud management to apply policy, orchestrate, and automate provisioning across public and private clouds. For the past two years, we have been working with our key customers to build CMP features into our platform. We have learnt from real customer requirements and pilots to understand broader market needs and perfect our platform features to address key CMP requirements. We are very excited to see that our updated platform is being deployed successfully by our partners to meet their internal and external customer needs.” Malaysia’s leading fully Integrated Managed Connectivity / Information and Communications Technology (ICT) / Business Process Outsourcing (BPO) services provider, VADS Berhad (VADS), a wholly-owned subsidiary of Telekom Malaysia Berhad (TM), an existing partner of Jamcracker, is looking forward to using the latest CMP update of Jamcracker Platform to offer multi-cloud and hybrid cloud managed services which comprise public cloud services including Amazon Web Services (AWS), Microsoft Azure, and private cloud services including VMware vCenter and vCloud Director and OpenStack hosted in VADS’s own data centers. Mahmoud Dasser, Vice President of Partnership and Marketing at VADS, said: “Jamcracker’s cloud management platform consolidates multi-cloud and hybrid cloud environments demanded by our large and small enterprise customers. Making sense of complex access management and billing requirements across a variety of cloud services is critical for our managed services practice. We are delighted that we are able to meet our customers’ expectations.

An anonymous donor has committed a $10 million gift to the College of Saint Benedict (CSB) to create the Center for Ethical Leadership in Action. A key function of the Center will be to increase students’ opportunities for experiential learning, which include study abroad, undergraduate research, service learning, fellowships and, often most influentially, internship experiences. This is the largest single gift in the college’s history. The gift will create a permanent endowment fund, which will fund the operations of the Center, including the support of experiential learning as well as a mentoring program and speaker series. Internships and other experiential learning opportunities will be carefully designed to support the formation of ethical women leaders in a variety of fields from business to medicine to education and beyond. “We are grateful for the donors whose vision and generosity have created the Center,” said CSB President Mary Dana Hinton. “It positions us as a leader among liberal arts colleges nationally in developing women’s leadership capacity, ethical decision-making, self-confidence and career readiness.” The establishment of the Center is especially important as increasing numbers of Saint Ben’s students do not have the financial wherewithal to afford an unpaid internship or other experiential learning. The Center for Ethical Leadership in Action will have the resources to offer stipends to students for whom these experiences would otherwise be out of reach. CSB, and its academic partner Saint John’s University, require that every student complete four credits of experiential learning as part of the core curriculum. The college plans to begin awarding stipends as early as summer 2017. Providing financial support such as this is a key goal in the college’s five-year Strategic Directions 2020 plan. In addition to supporting internships and other experiential learning opportunities, the Center will create a mentoring program and host speakers designed to promote the development of ethical leaders. “Having the Center will enable us to focus our educational programming and opportunities on ethical leadership, which has always been central to our mission,” said Richard Ice, CSB/SJU Provost. “Saint Ben’s is overwhelmed by the generosity of this gift,” said Kathy Hansen, vice president of institutional advancement at Saint Ben’s. “The donors have a long-standing appreciation for the quality education their daughter received at Saint Ben’s and a respect for ethical leadership that was nurtured by their parents. They’re driven to see all Saint Ben’s students receive the internships, research and service opportunities that will build character and form ethical leaders.” In 2016, for the 12th consecutive year, CSB and SJU were ranked among the top baccalaureate schools nationally for the total number of students who studied abroad, according to Open Doors 2016, the annual report on international education published by the Institute of International Education.

MOLINE, Ill., Oct. 27, 2016 (GLOBE NEWSWIRE) -- QCR Holdings, Inc. (NASDAQ:QCRH) today announced net income of $6.1 million and diluted earnings per share (“EPS”) of $0.46 for the quarter ended September 30, 2016. This included $1.5 million of acquisition costs (after-tax) related to the previously announced acquisition of Community State Bank (“CSB”). Excluding these acquisition costs and other non-core items, the Company reported core net income (non-GAAP) of $7.5 million and diluted EPS of $0.57. By comparison, for the quarter ended June 30, 2016, the Company reported net income of $6.7 million and diluted EPS of $0.53. This included $231 thousand of acquisition costs (after-tax) related to CSB. For the third quarter of 2015, the Company reported net income of $6.5 million and diluted EPS of $0.55. For the nine months ended September 30, 2016, the Company reported net income of $19.2 million and diluted EPS of $1.52. Excluding acquisition costs and other non-core items, the Company reported core net income (non-GAAP) of $20.6 million and diluted EPS of $1.64. By comparison, for the nine months ended September 30, 2015, the Company reported net income of $10.1 million and diluted EPS of $1.01. This included several nonrecurring items, including $4.5 million of losses on debt extinguishments (after-tax) related to the balance sheet restructuring that took place in the second quarter of 2015. “Our core operating performance for the first nine months of 2016 has been solid,” commented Douglas M. Hultquist, President and Chief Executive Officer, “and we continue to strategize and explore ways to improve our profitability through our ongoing key initiatives. Our core return on average assets (non-GAAP) has improved from 0.77% to 1.02%, when comparing the first nine months of 2015 to the same period of the current year. This is the result of solid loan growth, reductions in wholesale borrowings, continued margin improvements, and strong fee income.” Organic Loan and Lease Growth Strong at 10.6% Annualized Year-To-Date Swap Fee Income and Gains on the Sale of Government Guaranteed Loans Total $4.1 Million Year-To-Date During the third quarter of 2016, the Company’s total assets increased $597.6 million, or 22%, to a total of $3.28 billion, while total loans and leases grew $437.8 million. Of the $437.8 million of loan growth, $419.5 million related to the acquisition of CSB, while the remaining $18.3 million was organic growth. The organic loan and lease growth was funded primarily by deposits, which increased $140.1 million in the third quarter, excluding the acquisition of CSB. This deposit growth also allowed the Company to further reduce borrowings. “Loan and lease growth, excluding the effects of the acquisition, totaled $143.1 million, or an annualized rate of 10.6%, for the first nine months of the year,” commented Todd A. Gipple, Executive Vice President, Chief Operating Officer and Chief Financial Officer. “Strong loan and lease growth has helped us meet our targeted annual organic growth rate of 10-12% and continues to keep our loan and leases to asset ratio within our targeted range of 70-75%.” “Swap fee income and gains on the sale of government guaranteed loans were strong for the first nine months of 2016, totaling $4.1 million,” said Mr. Gipple. “We plan to continue executing these types of transactions, as they provide unique and beneficial solutions for our clients. We also look forward to offering these products in our newest market, Des Moines/Ankeny.” Net interest income totaled $23.6 million for the quarter ended September 30, 2016. By comparison, net interest income totaled $21.0 million and $20.1 million for the quarters ended June 30, 2016 and September 30, 2015, respectively. Net interest income totaled $65.2 million for the nine months ended September 30, 2016, an increase of 15.6% from the same period of the prior year. Net interest income attributable to CSB totaled $2.3 million for the partial quarter. “Net interest margin increased nine basis points from the prior quarter to 3.71%,” stated Mr. Gipple. He added, “The improvement in margin this quarter was attributable to the addition of Community State Bank. CSB’s strong margin and solid earnings will contribute significantly to our efforts to achieve upper-quartile ROAA performance and continue to drive shareholder value. For the month of September 2016, CSB had $546.0 million in average earning assets with a net interest margin of 4.99%. CSB’s net interest margin prior to acquisition typically ranged from 3.80% to 4.00%. This has increased due to purchase accounting adjustments, primarily the accretion of the loan discount, including the acceleration of discounts related to the payoff of purchased credit impaired loans.” Nonperforming Assets to Total Assets Ratio Flat During the Third Quarter Nonperforming assets (“NPAs”) increased $3.8 million in the current quarter, which was due to the acquisition of CSB. The ratio of NPAs to total assets was 0.69% at September 30, 2016, which was down from 0.70% at June 30, 2016 and down from 0.80% a year ago. “Asset quality at our newest charter, CSB, is strong and very much in line with the rest of our subsidiaries, resulting in a slight reduction of our NPAs to total assets ratio this quarter. We remain committed to further improving asset quality,” stated Mr. Hultquist. The Company’s provision for loan and lease losses totaled $1.6 million for the third quarter of 2016, which was up $410 thousand from the prior quarter, and flat as compared to the third quarter of 2015. The increase in provision in the third quarter of 2016 is primarily attributable to the addition of CSB. As of September 30, 2016, the Company’s allowance to total loans and leases was 1.22%, which was down from 1.46% at June 30, 2016 and down from 1.45% at September 30, 2015. In accordance with generally accepted accounting principles for acquisition accounting, the loans acquired through the acquisition of CSB were recorded at market value; therefore, there was no allowance associated with CSB’s loans at acquisition. Management continues to evaluate the allowance needed on the acquired CSB loans factoring in the net remaining discount ($12.7 million at September 30, 2016). When factoring this remaining discount into the Company’s allowance to total loans and leases calculation, the Company’s allowance as a percentage of total loans and leases increases from 1.22% to 1.76%. The Company’s total risk-based capital ratio was 11.45%, the common equity tier 1 ratio was 9.32% and the tangible common equity to tangible assets ratio decreased to 7.92%, all as of September 30, 2016. For comparison, these respective ratios were 14.29%, 11.72% and 10.10% as of June 30, 2016. The decrease in the Company’s capital ratios was primarily due to the acquisition of CSB. “We are excited about adding such a talented team to the Company and are encouraged by the opportunity for strong growth in Ankeny and the entire Des Moines MSA,” stated Mr. Gipple. As of September 30, 2016, CSB had total assets of $580.2 million, consisting primarily of loans totaling $419.5 million and a securities portfolio of $90.2 million. These assets were funded by $481.3 million of deposits and $15.3 million of borrowings. CSB reported net income for the partial quarter of $189 thousand, which included $473 thousand of after tax acquisition costs. Preliminary purchase accounting adjustments were recorded in the third quarter and the resulting accounting marks and the net dilution to tangible book value per share were more favorable than projected when the Company announced the CSB transaction in May of 2016. Actual dilution to tangible book value per share from the transaction, including the common stock issuance of $30.1 million in May of 2016, was only $1.03 per share, or 4.91%. This compares favorably to the $1.25 per share and 6.11% dilution that was projected. “The terms of the transaction required CSB to retain its earnings through the closing date. Due to better than projected CSB earnings and more favorable valuation marks, our earn-back on the tangible book value dilution from the transaction should be even more rapid than the three year earn-back we cited in our transaction announcement this past May,” stated Mr. Gipple. Significant One-Time Gain Used to Further Restructure Balance Sheet And Strengthen Net Interest Margin This quarter, the Company had the opportunity to sell an investment and recognize a gain of approximately $4.0 million. This gain was utilized to further reduce wholesale borrowings by $60 million at a blended rate of 3.24% and further de-lever the balance sheet with the sale of $28 million in securities yielding 1.48%. The remaining funding was replaced by a mix of core deposits and overnight borrowings. These transactions were recorded near the end of the quarter. The positive impact on future earnings will be an increase in net interest income of approximately $1.3 million annually, increasing NIM by approximately 10 basis points. The Company today filed a universal shelf registration statement on Form S-3 with the Securities and Exchange Commission ("SEC"). When declared effective by the SEC, the registration statement will allow QCR Holdings, Inc. to offer and sell various types of securities, including common stock, preferred stock, debt securities and/or warrants, from time to time up to an aggregate amount of $100 million. The Company utilized $30.1 million of its previous shelf registration filing through the offer and sale of its common stock in the second quarter of 2016 to help fund the acquisition of CSB. This Form S-3 filing will replenish the amount available to the previous $100 million.
