Calgary, Alberta – August 1, 2017 – Founders Advantage Capital Corp. (TSX-V: FCF) (the “Corporation”) is pleased to announce that its investee entity Dominion Lending Centres (“DLC”) has completed a sale of its 20% shareholdings in Canadiana Financial Corp. (“Canadiana”) to an arm’s length purchaser for $2.5 million cash. DLC sought to liquidate its minority interest in Canadiana as Canadiana was not part of DLC’s core mortgage brokerage business.
Gary Mauris, President of DLC commented: “While we believe Canadiana is on track to become a successful non-traditional mortgage lender, we prefer to focus solely on our core mortgage brokerage business and to direct additional capital to acquiring additional mortgage brokers and franchisees.”
The Corporation owns a 60% interest in DLC.
