("Lendified" or the "Company") announces it has filed its interim financial report for the three and nine months ended September 30, 2020 (the "Q3 Financial Report") and related management and discussion (the "MD&A").

- The Company entered into a definitive agreement in respect of the sale of its subsidiary, Lendified Technologies Inc. ("JUDI.AI") and subsequent to the end of the third quarter completed the sale of JUDI.AI, as disclosed in the Company's press release dated October 16, 2020.
- In August, the Company completed a private placement of units of the Company for aggregate gross proceeds of $956,071.
- The Company appointed John Gillberry as the new CEO and a Director of the Company, as well as appointed Guy Charette as Chair of the Board of Directors and Peter Ostapchuk as Chair of the Audit Committee.
- The Company continued to rationalize and restructure operations to position the Company to continue to operate under the unprecedented circumstances of the COVID-19 pandemic, as well as being positioned to take advantage of unique market conditions which should result post-pandemic.
As the COVID-19 pandemic continues to impact the global economy, the Company has continued to take active steps to protect the health and safety of its employees, stakeholders and business. The Company continues to employ proactive measures such as providing for work from home, eliminating travel and closely following the guidelines issued by the applicable health and regulatory authorities. Given the economic effects of COVID-19, the Company has been undertaking reductions in its expenses by reducing staffing, streamlining operations and lowering its marketing and sales expenses, resulting in lower overall operating costs for the Company. During the third quarter, the Company also experienced a reduction of demand for small business loans partially as a result of the loan and subsidy programs introduced by the Canadian Federal Government for small businesses, as well as due to uncertainty in the future of the Canadian economy as a result of the impact of COVID-19.
