Peak Positioning Files First Quarter 2013 Results

MONTREAL, QUEBEC--(Marketwired - May 31, 2013) - Peak Positioning Technologies Inc. ("Peak") (TSX VENTURE:PKK) today announced its financial results and reviewed highlights for the three-month period ended March 31, 2013.

Highlights:

  • Net royalties of $195,000 up from $112,000 in previous quarter
  • R&D expenditures of $99,000 before tax credits
  • Total expenses of $275,000
  • Net loss of $79,000
  • $450,000 of new equity capital and debt financing raised in the first five months of 2013
  • Agreement reached on terms for acquisition of LongKey

Larger than anticipated investments in China created liquidity issues for the Company in the fourth quarter of 2012. Therefore the Company's efforts in the first three months of fiscal 2013 were largely devoted to arranging for short and longer-term financing. Four short-term financings have been completed as of the date of this release for gross proceeds of $450,000. Peak also announced on May 13, 2013 that it has given a mandate to US-based Newfield Partners LLC to raise between $250,000 and $500,000 in additional financing.

From an operating standpoint, Peak's strategy of developing its business in China in partnership with LongKey-Hong Kong Ltd. ("LongKey") continued to progress in the first three months of the year. Net revenues from royalties are growing steadily from quarter to quarter and the growth is expected to accelerate as a result of LongKey's supply contract with China Unicom. On April 17, 2013, the Company announced that an agreement had been reached on the terms whereby Peak will acquire LongKey. Peak's acquisition of LongKey is one of the conditions to complete the previously announced US$6 million financing agreement with Essence International Capital.

"Peak's main focus in the coming quarters will be to complete the acquisition of LongKey and close the related US$6 million financing", said Johnson Joseph, President and Chief Executive Officer. "Peak and LongKey will then be in a position to open sales support offices in several provinces and expand the rollout of AiNi™ on China Unicom 3G devices. All of this in turn, is expected to have a significant positive impact on the Company's revenues in 2013", he stated.
