The Company's loan and convertible debenture portfolio amounted to $5.9 million, a decrease of 39% as compared to $9.6 million at December 31, 2009. The decrease of the loan and convertible debenture portfolio was due to the repayment of bridge loans outstanding during the period as well as a partial conversion of the Company's outstanding convertible debentures.

Total assets as at June 30, 2010 were $16.6 million compared to $16.5 million as at December 31, 2009. Included in total assets are $4.7 million in cash and short term investments.

Chief Executive Officer, Jason Ewart commented, "Operations were essentially break-even during the first half of the year. During the quarter the company received repayments from several bridge loans and we ended the quarter with a significant amount of cash that may be deployed into new transactions."

The Company is pleased to announce the appointment of Mr. Andrew Hilton to the position of Chief Financial Officer effective August 27, 2010.
