TORONTO, ONTARIO – GC-Global Capital Corp. (“Global Capital”) (TSX Venture Exchange “GDE.A”) announces its financial results for the year ended December 31, 2013. Fiscal 2013 was a year of major transition for the Company.
We recapitalized the Company in late 2013 (gross proceeds of $3.07 million) and early 2014 (gross proceeds of $1.0 million) for a total of $4.0 million of new capital financings. “Our financial statements reflect deliberate changes made in virtually every aspect of our business. Despite the net losses, the majority of which resulted from the equity loss from the investment in Marathon Mortgage Corp. and the bankruptcy of Tanenbaum Landscape and Design Inc., we feel that we are prepared to become a profitable and relevant merchant bank in the Canadian marketplace in 2014,” said Jason Ewart, CEO of GC Global Capital Corp. He added “The new capital raised in late 2013 and 2014 has been deployed into previously announced transactions that we believe will begin to show positive results in the second quarter of 2014, which we look forward to announcing in a timely manner.”
The new funds were deployed into previously announced transactions in late 2013 and early 2014 such as Poydras Specialty Finance Corp (October, 2013), Advantagewon Inc. (December, 2013) and Advantagewon Oil Corp. (January, 2014).
In 2013, the Company announced its intention to spin-out a wholly-owned subsidiary real estate investment company, GC Marathon Financial Corp. (“GCMFC”) in the form of a return of capital share distribution to the Company’s shareholders. The spin-out is intended to give the shareholders a direct interest in GCMFC’s Canadian real estate market focused investments which includes Marathon Mortgage Corporation (“MMC”). In early 2013, Marathon Mortgage Corporation (“MMC”) received its CMHC (Canada Mortgage and Housing Corporation) and Genworth Canada lenders status.
