Callidus Capital, 2017
Callidus Capital Corporation (the “Company” or “Callidus”) today provided the statement below in response to media reports containing allegations regarding the Company and its majority shareholder, The Catalyst Capital Group Inc. (“Catalyst”).
The Wall Street Journal today published allegations about Callidus and Catalyst that are completely false. Callidus is particularly concerned that the Wall Street Journal chose to publish these allegations after a comprehensive briefing held with them on August 8, 2017. For example, as part of that meeting it was made clear that the treatment of the Catalyst guarantee for Callidus loans made to Xchange Technology Group was in accordance with all applicable accounting requirements. As well, full disclosure was contained in both Catalyst’s financial reports to its limited partners and through Callidus’ public disclosures on an ongoing basis. The accounting treatment and disclosure were entirely appropriate and there is no basis for allegations to the contrary, facts the Wall Street Journal chose to ignore.
