  • Announces that at March 31, 2021, its unaudited net asset value per share (“NAV”) was $1.25.

TORONTO, April 15, 2021 — ThreeD Capital Inc. (“ThreeD” or the “Company”) (CSE:IDK / OTCQB:IDKFF) a Canadian-based venture capital firm focused on opportunistic investments in companies in the junior resources and disruptive technologies sectors, announces that at March 31, 2021, its unaudited net asset value per share (“NAV”) was $1.25.

This announcement is made based on ThreeD’s newly established practice of releasing NAV on a monthly basis as part of the Company’s ongoing response to shareholder interest in receiving periodic information. NAV is calculated based on unaudited month-end financial information.

Use of Non-GAAP Financial Measures:

This press release contains references to NAV or “net asset value per share” which is a non-GAAP financial measure. NAV is calculated as the value of total assets less the value of total liabilities divided by the total number of common shares outstanding as at a specific date. The term NAV does not have any standardized meaning according to GAAP and therefore may not be comparable to similar measures presented by other companies. There is no comparable GAAP financial measure presented in ThreeD’s consolidated financial statements and thus no applicable quantitative reconciliation for such non-GAAP financial measure. The Company believes that the measure provides information useful to its shareholders in understanding the Company’s performance, and may assist in the evaluation of the Company’s business relative to that of its peers. This data is furnished to provide additional information and does not have any standardized meaning prescribed by GAAP. Accordingly, it should not be considered in isolation or as a substitute for measures of performance prepared in accordance with GAAP, and is not necessarily indicative of other metrics presented in accordance with GAAP. Existing NAV of the Company is not necessarily predictive of the Company’s future performance or the NAV of the Company as at any future date.

About ThreeD Capital Inc.

ThreeD is a publicly-traded Canadian-based venture capital firm focused on opportunistic investments in companies in the junior resources and disruptive technologies sectors.  ThreeD’s investment strategy is to invest in multiple private and public companies across a variety of sectors globally. ThreeD seeks to invest in early stage, promising companies where it may be the lead investor and can additionally provide investees with advisory services and access to the Company’s ecosystem.

  • Engaged international investor relations specialists MZ Group (MZ) to lead a comprehensive strategic investor relations and financial communications program across all key markets.
  • MZ Group will work closely with Peak management to develop and implement a comprehensive capital markets strategy designed to increase the Company’s visibility throughout the investment community ahead of Peak’s anticipated listing on the Nasdaq Stock Market and thereafter.

Montreal, Quebec–(March 26, 2021) – Peak Fintech Group Inc.

MZ Group will work closely with Peak management to develop and implement a comprehensive capital markets strategy designed to increase the Company’s visibility throughout the investment community ahead of Peak’s anticipated listing on the Nasdaq Stock Market and thereafter. The campaign will highlight how Peak is leveraging the Cubeler Lending Hub platform in China to automate the commercial lending process as well as how Peak plans to deploy the Lending Hub ecosystem concept in North America by the end of 2021.

Leveraging artificial intelligence to analyze lending criteria allows Peak to match small businesses with multiple lending institutions, and therefore, increase the likelihood of funding while also minimizing risk for lenders by providing pre-qualified leads. The Company has seen wide adoption of its platform in China, and we look forward to sharing Peak’s solid position and aggressive expansion plan with our wide network of institutional investors and family offices.”

“2021 is an important inflection point for Peak, as we focus on executing our development roadmap over the coming year and prepare for an eventual Nasdaq listing,” said Johnson Joseph, President and CEO of Peak Fintech Group. “We look forward to working with Mark and the entire team at MZ Group to communicate with and introduce the Company to a whole new audience who may not yet be familiar with Peak as we continue to build long-term value for our shareholders,” concluded Johnson.

The agreement is for a term of twelve (12) months with a review after six (6) months.

AGORACOM Small Cap 60: Sheldon Inwentash of ThreeD Capital $IDK $IDKFF Thinks Peak Fintech $PKK.ca $PKKFF Could Be A Moonshot $UPST

VIDEO – ThreeD Capital $IDK $IDKFF NAV Climbs To $1.27 But Much More Expected To Come As “Teenage” and “Cub” Investments In The Portfolio Are Just Starting To Hunt $IP $IPNFF $MTRX $RACMF $PKK.ca $PKKFF $GMBL

A lion pride grows by continually nurturing new blood.  While new cubs are born every year and are nurtured for growth, the teenagers are groomed to prepare to take over leadership from the old guard. 

In the case of ThreeD Capital (IDK:CSE / IDKFF:OTCQB), the company’s portfolio might be too young for any old guards just yet …. but teenagers like Esports Entertainment Group (NASDAQ), Peak Fintech Group (Imminent NASDAQ), Loop Insights (Global Partnerships) and ImagineAR (Global Partnerships) are maturing very nicely with their long leadership years still ahead of them according to Chairman Sheldon Inwentash. 

ThreeD Capital prides (pardon the pun) itself on discovering great companies before everyone else … and it casts a wide net to find the best of the best ranging from completely disruptive companies to junior resources and mining companies .  

More importantly, Inwentash’s championship investment style has netted billion dollar exits in the past simply because he isn’t afraid to invest and be patient for markets to catch up to his great early ideas.  Case in point, he points out how he was early into Esports Entertainment Group on the OTC, with the market only now catching up to it as an $18 NASDAQ stock …. that is set to go much higher in the next 2 -3 years. 

As such, it’s like and ETF for ground floor investments that small cap investors would either be unable to find (private) or unable to participate in (early round accredited investors) 

More than just lip service, his last company commanded a market cap north of $1 Billion at its peak and now he’s looking to recreate the same success with IDK – only faster given the great and fast growing technology companies he is investing in. 

Will he do it?  He’s off to a good start so far by quietly making investments over the past couple of years that are now starting to pay off, as seen by his recently reported NAV (Net Asset Value) of $1.27.   

But that NAV is just scratching the surface when you consider the fact his teens have just barely started their hunting phase and he’s adding new cubs just about every week as of late. 

Watch this great interview … because when the king of the jungle roars, every small cap investor should be listening.
