"Our growth trajectory continues with another quarter of record revenue and record comprehensive net income," said Mike Walkinshaw, CEO of Montfort Capital Corporation. "During the third quarter we announced the completion of our Brightpath Capital acquisition, one of Canada's leading private providers of residential mortgages, and more recently, after the quarter end, the Langhaus Financial acquisition, a leading provider of insurance policy backed loans, which together has increased our total assets by $150 million. The acquisitions of Brightpath and Langhaus adds to our financial strength and provides diversification across the private credit sector as we look for additional growth opportunities into 2023."

During the third quarter ended September 30, 2022, Montfort benefited from increased payments (combined principal and interest) as a result of the continued revenue growth of TIMIA's and Pivot's underlying portfolio and the acquisition of Brightpath in the third quarter of 2022.

Total expenses for the 3 months ended September 30, 2022, were $7.2 million compared with $1.0 million for the prior year.
