Third Quarter Financial and Operating Results Summary

“When looking at today’s results, it’s easy to notice the quarter over quarter revenue growth,” commented Johnson Joseph, President and CEO of Peak. “But I think it’s important to point out that what’s behind this growth is the tangible impact that our services are having on both lenders and on the SMEs and micro businesses who benefit from them in Wuxi, Jiangyin and Xian. Our growing influence on commercial lending at the grass-roots level in China is what we’re most excited about at Peak as we now look to expand our service offering beyond those three cities,” concluded Mr. Joseph.

Revenue generated from services provided to supply-chain participants by the Company’s ASDS and ASSC subsidiaries represented the largest segment of the Company’s revenue in Q3, combining to account for about 72% of its revenue during the quarter. The Company’s ASFC subsidiary saw another slight increase in the average annual interest rate of its loan portfolio during the period, going from 17.1% to 17.5%, which helped boost its revenue by about 10% in Q3. ASFC and the Company’s ASCS subsidiary collectively accounted for the remaining 28% of the Company’s revenue for the quarter.

In summary, the Company generated revenue of $4,499,953 for the three-month period and $7,351,186 for the nine-month period ended September 30, 2019, compared to $709,739 for the three-month period and $939,496 for the nine-month period ended September 30, 2018.
