~LP III is TIMIA’s first limited partnership to be available through FundSERV~
VANCOUVER, BC – March 8, 2022 – TIMIA Capital Corporation (“TIMIA” or the “Company”) (TSX-V:TCA/OTCQB:TIMCF), a leading innovator of technology in private credit, today announced it has received approximately $6.3 million (US$5 million) in subscription agreements towards its third Limited Partnership (“LP III”).
LP III builds on the successful closing of the first limited partnership (“LP I”) in 2019 which raised $18.4 million and the second limited partnership (“LP II”) which raised $21.6 million. TIMIA will have approximately $6.3 million of new capital to invest in software-as-a-service (“SaaS”) companies in North America. LP III is denominated in US dollars, reflecting the intention to invest a majority of proceeds into US based recurring revenue technology companies with loan terms generally varying from 2 to 6 years.
“The world of private credit as an alternative asset class has largely been reserved for institutional investors,” said Mike Walkinshaw, CEO of TIMIA. “With our third limited partnership we have made investments in private credit available to accredited investors through approved dealers on FundSERV Inc. and directly through Belco Private Capital Inc. We have been very successful at deploying the capital of our previous two limited partnerships. The LP structure has allowed us to materially grow TIMIA’s technology lending division through investments in growing SaaS companies. We are able to provide growth capital to tech entrepreneurs while offering the opportunity for superior returns to accredited investors. Our technology lending experienced considerable growth in 2021 and we look to continue that trajectory throughout 2022.”
LP III Transaction Highlights:
- TIMIA Capital III Preferred Return Fund Trust is available directly through Belco Private Capital Inc. the exempt market dealer of the Trust, as well as IIROC and other approved dealers on FundSERV,
- Denominated in US dollars, the primary business of the Trust is to invest in units of LP III,
- Accretive to the Company with no dilution to the shareholders,
- TIMIA will receive a 1.5% servicing fee to manage LP III as its general partner,
- TIMIA will receive a performance fee based upon the profit of LP III for the life of the fund, subject to investors achieving their preferred return first, and
- Open to follow-on closes on a continuous basis to a maximum of $50 million.
