All figures are reported in Canadian dollars unless otherwise noted.

For the three months ended June 30, 2022 , the Company had the following highlights:

  • Record income from the settlement of loans and transaction and other fees increased from $0.7 million in the prior year period to $1.4 million in the three months ending June 30, 2022 ,
  • Total assets of $138.3 million as at June 30, 2022 compared to $125.1 million at December 31, 2021 . Cash balance, as part of assets, for the second quarter was $3.4 million compared to $9.3 million as at December 31, 2021 , and
  • TIMIA's loan investment portfolio (loans receivable) increased to $126.9 million in the second quarter 2022 compared to $106.1 million as of December 31, 2021 .

On a comprehensive basis:

  • Reported record net comprehensive income of $2.4 million for the three months ended June 30, 2022 , compared to consolidated net comprehensive loss of $0.4 million for the three months ending May 31, 2021 .

"With record revenue and record net comprehensive income we continue to see opportunities to fund strong organic growth in our technology and asset backed businesses," said Mike Walkinshaw , CEO of Montfort Capital Corporation. "Having recently announced the completion of our acquisition of Brightpath Capital, one of Canada's leading private providers of residential mortgages, we look to leverage the technical strength of our loan origination platform and the expertise of our personnel to expand into additional market verticals."

"The general market backdrop and related uncertainty has created opportunities for capital providers that can think outside the box and bring creative financing solutions,'' added Walkinshaw. "Given this backdrop, I remain positive about the continued growth in private credit and feel that we have the right team and processes in place to successfully execute on our business strategy."

Detailed Financial Review

The Company utilizes a proprietary loan origination platform to originate, underwrite and service private-market, high-yield loan opportunities through two operating divisions: TIMIA Capital technology lending which offers revenue-based investment to fast growing, business-to-business Software-as-a-Service (or SaaS) businesses in North America , and Pivot Financial which specializes in asset-backed private credit targeting mid-market borrowers in Canada .

TIMIA technology loan portfolio includes 29 unique deals with current disbursements extended under those facilities totaling $46.0 million . During the second quarter 2022 TIMIA continued to expand its loan portfolio completing 2 new and 7 follow-on loan transactions, disbursing funds of $18 million .

Loans on Pivot's balance sheet include 14 unique deals with a value of $80.2 million . The most significant investment was a loan due from a related party in the amount of $60.5 million .

Total consolidated revenue for the three months ended June 30, 2022 , increased $3.2 million or 174% to $5.3 million from $1.8 million in the three months ended May 31, 2021 .

Interest income for the 3 months ended June 30, 2022 , was $3.7 million compared to $1.2 million in the three months ended May 31, 2021 ; income from transaction and other fees was $0.6 million in the second quarter 2022 compared to $0.1 million in the prior fiscal quarter; income from the settlement of loans and performance fee income was $0.8 million versus $0.5 million in the prior period, resulting in total revenue of $5.3 million .

During the second quarter ended June 30, 2022 , TIMIA benefited from increased payments (combined principal and interest) as a result of the continued revenue growth of its underlying portfolio and the acquisition of Pivot in the third quarter of 2021.

Total expenses for the 3 months ended June 30, 2022 , were $3.6 million compared with $0.9 million for the prior year. The majority of the increase in total expenses is due to additional headcount, interest expense related to the loans payable, and other related fees attributable to the acquisition of Pivot.

During the three months ended June 30, 2022 , the Company posted net income of $1.4 million compared with $0.6 million for the three months ended May 31, 2021 .

Lake Resources NL  Updates Kachi Demonstration Plant Activity

Lake Resources NL Updates Kachi Demonstration Plant Activity

Sydney, Australia (ABN Newswire) - Lake Resources NL (ASX:LKE) (FRA:LK1) (OTCMKTS:LLKKF) advises that work proceeds with Lilac Solutions, Inc. (Lilac) on site at the Kachi Project in Argentina, with commissioning now underway on the demonstration plant.

Whilst on 14 September 2022 Lake issued a Notice of Dispute under its agreement with Lilac, in respect of certain performance timelines (Dispute), Lake wishes to advise that ongoing work is being done by Lilac at the Kachi Project and all parties are confident on-site operations will be successful.

Lake confirms that construction of the facility to house the Lilac demonstration plant is now complete.

Dry commissioning of the demonstration plant commenced on Wednesday September 14.

Lilac has advised Lake that, subject to completion of dry commissioning, it expects to begin wet commissioning of the plant on September 22; once wet commissioning is complete, Lilac expects to begin onsite processing of Kachi brines in the first week of October.

Whilst the test program is based on operating the demonstration plant for 1000 hours it is anticipated that the first 2000 litres of lithium concentrate produced from the demonstration plant will be sent for conversion into Lithium Carbonate once delivered. Lake proposes that this final Lithium product will then be qualified by a tier 1 battery maker to validate product specifications.

Lake will continue to update the market on the Kachi Project, the Dispute, and, as the demonstration test work continues, on the progress, the timelines, milestones and outcomes.

Lake confirms offtake discussions continue to advance and new appointments to the Lake board are in final stages of consideration.



About Lake Resources NL:

Lake Resources NL (ASX:LKE) (OTCMKTS:LLKKF) is a clean lithium developer utilising clean, direct extraction technology for the development of sustainable, high purity lithium from its flagship Kachi Project, as well as three other lithium brine projects in Argentina. The projects are in a prime location within the Lithium Triangle, where 40% of the world's lithium is produced at the lowest cost.

This method will enable Lake Resources to be an efficient, responsibly-sourced, environmentally friendly and cost competitive supplier of high-purity lithium, which is readily scalable, and in demand from Tier 1 electric vehicle makers and battery makers.
