MONTREAL, QUEBEC – (NEWSFILE – April 30, 2021) – Peak Fintech Group Inc. (CSE: PKK) (OTCQX: PKKFF) (“Peak” or the “Company”), an innovative Fintech service provider to the Chinese commercial lending sector, today announced that is has filed amended financial statements for the three-month and nine-month periods ended September 30, 2020 and September 30, 2019.
The main reason for the amendment has to do with payments made in shares to certain capital markets advisors and consultants during the third quarter of 2020. The services provided by these advisors and consultants helped develop and implement capital markets strategies that greatly contributed to the appreciation of Peak’s market cap in 2020. As the Company’s stock price appreciated during the quarter, the deemed price at which shares were being issued as compensation to the advisors and consultants should have been adjusted to remain in compliance with the Canadian Securities Exchange’s maximum allowable discount for the issuance of the shares. Since the Company unknowingly failed to make that adjustment, consulting expenses were understated in the third quarter 2020 financial statements originally filed in November 2020. This has now been corrected in the amended financial statements.
There was no change in the Company’s reported revenue for the period. Full details of the Company’s third quarter 2020 financial results can be found in the Unaudited Condensed Interim Consolidated Financial Statements (Amended) and Management’s Discussion and Analysis (MD&A) for the three-month and nine-month periods ended September 30, 2020 and 2019, which are available at www.sedar.com.
The Company’s year-end 2020 audited financial statements, due on April 30, 2021, will now be incorporated by reference in the Company’s short form prospectus dated March 11, 2021, replacing the September 30, 2020 interim financial statements.
