During the quarter, Halmont purchased a leasehold interest in a downtown commercial office building located at 221 Yonge Street in Toronto, Ontario for $5.5 million.

Subsequent to June 30, 2018, Halmont acquired a $14 million participating mortgage maturing July 2021.

At the Company's June 27, 2018 shareholder meeting, shareholders approved a proposed consolidation of the Company's outstanding Class A and Class B common shares on a one-for-five basis. Since this would result in our board lots falling below those required by the Toronto Venture Exchange, the implementation of the share consolidation is being deferred until a broader distribution is achieved.

The book value of each common share, based on the Company's December 31, 2017 IFRS appraisals and including the net income earned in the second quarter, was 48¢ per share as at June 30, 2018.

Halmont Properties Corporation invests directly in real estate and securities of companies holding property, energy and infrastructure assets.
