Denis Laviolette, President and Chief Executive Officer, commented: “2018 was a pivotal year for Goldspot. We significantly increased our staff from 10 to 23 persons, allowing us to provide our services to more clients and to expand upon the research and development of our Resource Quantamental platform. Despite the increase in operational costs, 2018 was a record year for us in terms of revenue and innovation.”
In February 2019, Goldspot Holdings Inc., completed a brokered private placement financing, raising gross proceeds of $7.56 million and subsequently completed an RTO and commenced trading on the TSX Venture Exchange. As a result of the completion of these transactions, the share capital of the Company increased significantly, which will be reflected in the Company’s interim financial statements for the first quarter of 2019, however, Goldspot now has the bandwidth to further increase consulting revenue, and more importantly, provide our services to the exploration companies in which the Company has a vested interest.
To date, the Company has invested in two mineral exploration companies and will continue to do so with a view to assemble a sizeable portfolio of equities and royalties. The Company’s junior mining investment strategy has attracted prolific mining and technology investor, Frank Holmes, to join Goldspot as an independent director and Chairman, and Triple Flag Mining Finance which invested $2.9 million in the Company’s most recent private placement financing, representing approximately 8% of the Company’s issued and outstanding share capital.
