Financial Group ("MCAN" or the "Company") (TSX: MKP), a leading

identity and announced that it will now be doing business as MCAN

with more than 30 years of experience delivering value to
shareholders, partners, and clients," said Karen Weaver, President and CEO. "This rebrand
not only reflects the scope and breadth of all that we do, it also
represents a new phase for our Company - one defined by continued
focus on growth, fueled by ingenuity, backed by real estate
expertise and manifested by collaborative, fulfilling partnerships
both internally and externally."
MCAN, a federally regulated mortgage investment corporation
since 1991, offers investment opportunities across many types of
Canadian real estate, primarily focused on residential development
and home ownership, by leveraging its real estate expertise. MCAN's
lines of business include MCAN Home, MCAN Capital and MCAN
- MCAN Home is a single-family residential mortgage lender that
partners exclusively with accredited mortgage professionals to
offer both insured and uninsured mortgage solutions across
Canada. This line of business
operates through MCAN's wholly owned subsidiary, XMC Mortgage
Corporation, which has legally changed its name to MCAN Home
- MCAN Capital is the business channel through which the Company
focuses on unique financing and investment opportunities in the
construction and commercial markets, REIT investing and private
investment funds focused on lending to and developing Canadian
communities, as well as through its 13.94% equity interest in MCAP,
a privately-owned limited partnership and Canada's largest mortgage financing
- MCAN Wealth offers investors Canada Deposit Insurance
Corporation ("CDIC") insured investment solutions.
MCAN Financial Group recently reported total assets of
$3.8 billion at December 31, 2021, an increase of 40% from
December 31, 2020 and an increase of
78% from December 31, 2018. This
level of growth has been achieved across all asset classes. MCAN
also reported total shareholder return CAGR (Compound Annual Growth
Rate) of 14% over the past five years.
"In 2021, we achieved our best results not only financially, but
also from a cultural perspective, growing as a team dedicated to
diversity and excellence," said Weaver.
MCAN Financial Group recently earned certification as a Great
Place to Work®, in addition to recognition for service
and product innovation in its MCAN Home business channel.
MCAN has also been placed on the ROB Magazine Women Lead Here
benchmark list for gender diversity in corporate Canada for the last three years.
"We're a diverse team with many unique stories. Our culture has
never been stronger, and our team has never functioned better,"
said Weaver. "That level of experience and efficiency helps us
approach every deal with the goal of mutual success. We value the
trust our partners place in us to help build the right solution for
their clients whether they are home owners, residential builders,
or investors in our company who are seeking their opportunity to
invest in their own slice of the Canadian real estate market. We
look forward to reporting on our further successes as we continue
to build the business."
