About Second Quarter Financial and Operating Results Summary

Second quarter growth was fueled by the business development initiatives which began in the fourth quarter of 2020 and continued in the first quarter of 2021 including Peak’s partnership with Rongbang Technology Ltd. and the arrival of large national distributors to Peak’s Business Hub. The Company’s retailer and distributor financing programs, the Business Hub’s ability to leverage the China UnionPay network to provide fund transfer and payment processing services, and the Gold River platform’s impact on reducing the costs related to the Company’s supply chain services, combined to bring Peak into profitability territory for the first time in the Company’s history.

In summary, the Company generated revenue of $30,649,179 for the three-month period and $44,888,955 for the six-month period ended June 30, 2021, compared to $7,263,504 for the three-month period and $11,212,899 for the six-month period ended June 30, 2020.

Total expenses before taxes for the quarter amounted to $29,411,980, compared to $7,578,644 for the same period in 2020. Net income for the second quarter of 2021 was $296,071 compared to a net loss of $538,903 for the same period of 2020.

Peak has kept its outlook for 2021 at $104M in revenue, $12.5M in EBITDA and $5.6M in net income for the time being. However, the Company expects to revise guidance, as previously stated, following the closing of its pending acquisition of Cubeler, Inc.
