In March, 2017, AIM1 Ventures sold two million escrowed shares at five cents. Mr. Sontrop, 45, a chartered financial analyst, holds 400,000 escrowed shares. He has not yet been a public company director. He is the president and chief compliance officer of Interward Asset Management Ltd., an investment management company in Toronto. Before settling down and joining Interward Asset as a portfolio manager in 2006, Mr. Sontrop was an equity research analyst with BMO Capital Markets for a year and an associate director at Scotia Capital for more than three years.
Last month, AIM1 Ventures sold 3.2 million shares at the non-discounted price of 10 cents. Of these shares, 1.7 million will remain in escrow, along with the five-cent seed shares. Interward Asset controls these 1.7 million escrowed shares of the shell, through Interward Capital Corp. and Rockhaven Holdings Ltd. Mr. Sontrop is a director of both Interward Capital and Rockhaven Holdings. The Interward Asset group was founded by Kim Ward, a former pilot. He is a son of Max Ward, the founder of charter airline Wardair Canada Ltd.
