When the leader of the Recirculating Aquaculture System (RAS) movement speaks, it makes sense to listen. So, recently, when Atlantic Sapphire shared its interest in growing steelhead trout on a 2Q21 earnings call, our team was compelled to learn more.

RAS: Steelhead vs. Salmon

The world's largest corporations are under attack and frequently at that. Using ransomware, a type of malicious software that blocks users from accessing their own data, digital extortionists are encrypting files, adding extensions to attacked data and holding it "hostage" until the demanded ransom is paid.

Companies we've worked with

Bridge Executive Energy Solutions

Bridge Executive Group is focused on designing, developing, and delivering innovative energy solutions to the North American and European markets. Bridge offers strategy and business development, engineering, financing and project management solutions to its clients. The company offers technologies in solar, wind, and hydro power generation as well as electrical energy storage.


Peritus Group provided a multi-stage term loan to finance Bridge Executive's replacement of three hydroelectric turbines at New Brunswick Power. NB Power is a Canadian crown company with over CAD 1.5bn in revenues and is the primary electric utility to the province of New Brunswick.

Cooke Aquaculture

Cooke Aquaculture's humble beginning was in 1985 with one farm and 5,000 salmon. Over three decades later, the Cooke family still owns and operates the business but has grown it into one of the largest innovative, fully integrated, diversified global seafood companies in the world. Its operations span North America, Europe, and Latin America, comprised of a deep value chain in Atlantic salmon, sea bass, sea bream, shrimp, and wild-caught fish.

Peritus Capital supports Cooke Aquaculture's global efforts with unique local and cross-border asset finance strategies. We help provide the capital that allows Cooke to acquire major industrial assets across the value chain and including feed mills, feed barges, processing equipment, and Recirculating Aquaculture Systems.

GIS Ventures, Inc.

GIS Ventures is pioneering the application of aqueous concentrated dissolved oxygen solutions into medical and critical animal fields. The company’s base IP is a mass gas transfer system that can exchange nitrogen for oxygen in an aquatic environment increasing oxygen levels by 4 times and with zero change in total pressure.


GIS Ventures has identified dozens of potential applications that could benefit from super saturated oxygen solutions including areas such as wound care, organ transplants, and equine wounds. Peritus Group invested in and financed the R&D capital for the development of these new applications.

Gas Infusion Systems Inc.

Gas Infusion Systems Inc. (GIS) is a St. Andrews, New Brunswick-based innovator of unique aquaculture and transportation applications for fish health and welfare. GIS has partnered with a top aquaculture and pharmaceutical company in the commercialization of its solutions.


The company’s key technology is an aqueous gas exchange system that can extract nitrogen and replace it with oxygen in a 1-for-1 molecule exchange. The solution is bubble-less, super saturating fluids with oxygen while maintaining a constant total gas pressure. This creates an ideal environment for rearing and transporting fish.


Peritus Group has directly invested in and financed the development of GIS. We continue to support the founders in the expansion of their innovative solutions across the seafood sector.

Rype Office

Rype Office returns high quality used furniture to as-new condition and makes innovative furniture from waste materials. They also offer award-winning sustainable office design assistance.

Furniture is the biggest source of carbon emissions in a commercial building. Rype Office reduces this by 80% while saving clients money and creating jobs for those with disabilities.

Peritus Capital supported the growth of Rype Office by financing its working capital with an equity private placement.

Topolytics

Topolytics is a data aggregation and analytics business that makes the world’s waste visible, verifiable, and valuable. The company provides mapping and machine learning tools for private, government, and non-profit organizations that generate waste through their operations and products, allowing for greater resource recovery.

Peritus Capital made a seed investment into Topolytics to support the company's data science hires and working capital needs as it begins to scale a significant pipeline of opportunities.

Where we started


Prior to Peritus, the Founders launched a small business lender using proprietary software to source lending opportunities, later exiting its loan portfolio at a profit and producing attractive returns for investors. This was followed by an investment in Lighthouse Finance, an aquaculture focused asset finance firm headquartered in Norway. The Founders were instrumental in rebranding the business, expanding it into North America, Europe, and Asia, significantly growing its portfolio, and resulting in a 8x return to the Founders in less than three years.

While Peritus expands its investment mandate to other sectors and financial instruments, it continues to guide and support the development of Lighthouse.

The Founders have held key executive roles and contributed to the transformation of a venture capital-backed start-up to a billion-dollar business. The business continues to be a critical provider of business intelligence and research to a broad audience of hedge funds, financial advisors, and institutional investors.
