About First Quarter Financial and Operating Results Summary

As the Chinese government sought to get the economy re-started through various credit initiatives following the COVID-19 lockdown, Peak's subsidiaries, which generally help facilitate commercial credit transactions between lenders and SMEs, were able to ride some of those initiatives to have a strong finish to the quarter. A considerable amount of credit was allocated to helping stimulate local supply-chains in March, which allowed the Company's Asia Synergy Supply Chain and Asia Synergy Data Solutions subsidiaries' combined revenue to account for almost 70% of Peak's total revenue for the quarter.

In summary, the Company generated $3,949,395 in revenue for the quarter ended March 31, 2020 compared to $949,511 for the same period in 2019. Total expenses for the quarter amounted to $4,755,090, compared to $1,518,290 for the same period in 2019.

The net loss for the the three-month period ending March 31, 2020 was $805,695 compared to $568,779 for the same period of 2019.
