Fountain Asset Corp. Announces Its Financial Results for the Quarter Ended March 31, 2022


TORONTO, May 26, 2022 (GLOBE NEWSWIRE) -- Fountain Asset Corp. (TSXV:FA) ("Fountain" or the "Company") would like to announce its financial results for the three months ended March 31, 2022 ("Q1/22").

Highlights from Q1/22:

During Q1/22, the company saw an increase from its portfolio of publicly traded companies which included increases from Filo Mining. These were offset by decreases in Kwesst Micro Systems and Cansortium Inc.

The decrease in operating expenses to $0.18 million for Q1/22 compared to $0.19 million in the comparative quarter was driven by lower general and administrative costs.

The Company saw net comprehensive loss of $2.03 million for Q1/22 compared to net comprehensive income of $4.84 million for Q1/21. As at March 31, 2022, the Company's adjusted net assets were valued at $22.42 million or $0.36 per share compared to $24.44 million or $0.40 per share at December 31, 2021.

"The Company posted a revenue and profit decline during Q1/22 due to losses in several publicly traded companies. Fountain saw some of its private investments go public during the quarter which led to an increase in net realized losses." said Andrew Parks, CEO of Fountain.

A full set of the Q1/22 unaudited financial statements and the management discussion & analysis are available on SEDAR.
