Blackhawk Files Third Quarter Financial Results

CALGARY, ALBERTA--(Marketwired - May 24, 2016) - Blackhawk Resource Corp. ("Blackhawk" or the "Corporation") (TSX VENTURE:BLR) is pleased to announce that the unaudited financial statements and MD&A for the period ended March 31, 2016 have been filed on Sedar.

Highlights for the period ended March 31, 2016 include:

  • Interest income of $87,091 on its debt portfolio for the three month period.
  • As at March 31, 2016, Blackhawk had $3,726,597 in working capital.

  • As at March 31, 2016, NAV per share was $0.10.

During the three month period ended March 31, 2016 the Corporation continued to refocus its investment portfolio in debt type instruments. This increased focus in debt instruments has allowed the Corporation to earn over $87,000 in interest income during this three month period, and over $331,000 in the first nine months of its fiscal year. Blackhawk continues to hold numerous equity investments, and has begun to strategically focus its equity investments in the area of e-sports and fantasy sports. With the current state of the junior resource equity markets it feels this focus in its equity investments is a manner to obtain a significant return on its investable capital. The Corporation continues to review both equity and debt investment opportunities, and has continued with this industry focus in the current quarter. The goal of this strategy is to develop a portfolio of investments, which is expected to include equity, debt instruments and direct asset investments in certain situations which will continue to provide positive cash flow returns. To date the Corporation has paid four dividends.
