MONTREAL, QUEBEC – (NEWSFILE – March 12, 2020) – Peak Positioning Technologies Inc. (CSE: PKK) (“Peak” or the “Company”) today announced that the Shanghai branch of Jiu Dong Ltd. (“Jiu Dong”), the Company’s strategic partner and minority owner of its Asia Synergy Financial Capital (“ASFC”) subsidiary, has officially become a Jinxiaoer Service Center.
Peak recently acquired the Jinxiaoer loan brokerage platform partly because of Jinxiaoer’s established relationships with loan brokers and their affiliated sales reps in cities across China. Peak plans to integrate Jinxiaoer to the Company’s Cubeler Lending Hub commercial loan platform and convert many of the Jinxiaoer loan broker partners into Jinxiaoer Service Centers. While the Jinxiaoer platform will provide the technological means for loan sales reps to submit a steady stream of loan leads to the Lending Hub ecosystem, the Jinxiaoer Service Centers will give Peak the physical presence it needs to expand its services to new cities and further establish itself in the Chinese commercial credit space.
Jiu Dong operates as a loan broker in Wuxi, Changzhou and Shanghai. The Shanghai branch counts approximately 40 affiliated sales reps dedicated to helping consumers and small business owners obtain loans that are secured by their vehicles. The use of vehicles as loan collateral has exploded in China over the past few years and today represents one of the most popular ways used by Chinese lenders to secure both consumer and small business loans. Jiu Dong thus becomes the first Jinxiaoer Service Center in Shanghai dedicated to facilitating loans secured by vehicles.
Change to Peak Board of Directors
Peak also announced that Mr. Laval Bolduc, who retired in 2017 after serving as the Company’s CFO for six years but continued to serve as a Director and part-time managing consultant of Peak, has stepped aside from those role as of February 29, 2020 to focus on his retirement. The Company would like to thank Mr. Bolduc for his dedication and valuable contributions over the years that have helped make Peak the company it is today and wish him the very best in his retirement years and future endeavors. Peak intends to appoint Mr. Bolduc’s replacement on its Board of Directors at the Company’s next Annual General Meeting of shareholders.
