Montréal – On October 15, 2021, the Superior Court allowed a request by the Autorité des marchés financiers (“AMF”) for a receiver to be appointed for Silvermont Finance Inc., Silvermont Capital Inc., MarDi.Info Income Trust, MarDi.Info Operating Trust, Exempt Market L.P., General Partner Inc., 9428-5855 Québec inc., Green River Investments Inc., Green River Finance Canada Inc., and 9129-6004 Québec inc. (operating as Green River Financing).

In the course of its investigation into the registered firm Cape Cove Financial Management Inc., the AMF noted inexplicable movements of funds between the companies covered by the receivership order issued on July 8, 2021 and the defendants referred to in this news release, including their officers and related companies. The AMF also noted the undisclosed involvement of Efstratios Gavriil (also known as Strato Gavriil and Sean Gabriel) (“Gavriil”) with some of the corporate defendants through Calixa Capital Partners Inc. (“Calixa”).

Raymond Chabot Administrateur Provisoire inc. has been appointed by the Superior Court as receiver for the companies. Investors who have any questions are asked to contact Mr. Emmanuel Phaneuf by e-mail at [email protected]. The AMF is continuing its parallel investigation.

On July 22, 2021, the Financial Markets Administrative Tribunal issued cease trade orders on an interim basis against Gavriil and Calixa.

The parties have 10 days from the date of the decision to contest it.
