~Two growing SaaS companies exit TIMIA’s financing facilities generating over $400,000 in gains~
VANCOUVER, BC – May 4, 2021 – TIMIA Capital Corporation (“TIMIA” or the “Company”) (TSX-V:TCA/OTC: TIMCF) announced today that two previously reported non-dilutive financing facilities for two growing US-based software-as-a-service (SaaS) companies have been paid out. The exit of these two financings are expected to generate a combined gain of approximately $400,000 which will positively impact the Company’s Q2 2021 consolidated results.
“These two exits reflect the robust nature of the SaaS industry in 2021 and the value of our investment facilities to early stage growing technology companies,” said Mike Walkinshaw, CEO of TIMIA. “Early exits are also great indicators of how our origination platform can successfully identify worthy candidates for our innovative non-dilutionary financing. We continue to see strength in the software sector with SaaS companies requiring growth capital. Entrepreneurs recognize the value of our investments and as a result we expect financing activity in our target marketplace to continue to grow.”
TIMIA also reports that a total of 1,000,000 common share purchase warrants of the Company (“the Warrants”) have been exercised at a price of $0.20 per common share. Proceeds from the exercise of the Warrants were $200,000 and 1,000,000 common shares have been issued from the Company’s treasury. The Warrants were issued in conjunction with a debenture offering in August 2017.
The funds raised strengthen the Company’s balance sheet and allow for further investments to be made in private software companies, in pursuit of generating income for TIMIA and its shareholders.
TIMIA invites growing technology companies, seeking innovative and non-dilutive financing, to register through the TIMIA fintech platform. Under a revenue-based origination model, TIMIA matches non-dilutive capital to technology businesses with recurring revenue streams, allowing the company to make monthly payments, made up of a combination of principal and interest, with a repayment schedule sculpted to its revenue streams. The amounts advanced are secured and may be repaid early.
