~Financing for California-based software company becomes third transaction in two weeks for TIMIA~
VANCOUVER, BC – May 10, 2019 – TIMIA Capital Corporation (“TIMIA” or the “Company”) (TSX-V:TCA/OTC: TIMCF) announced that it has entered into a US$2 million investment facility for Los Gatos, California, based software company Metazoa, Inc. (“Metazoa”). The financing facility includes an initial disbursement of US$600,000 which has been advanced, and a further US$1,400,000 to be disbursed upon certain milestones being met over the term of the agreement.
“We’ve increased our pace of investment, penning three transactions in the last two weeks,” said Greg Smith, CIO of TIMIA. “We look for great companies, like Metazoa, who continue to grow their business and see the benefit of non-dilutive capital as a funding mechanism for this growth.”
“Metazoa has been growing due to the clear market need for Salesforce release and Org management solutions,” said Jennifer Mercer, CEO at Metazoa. “We were seeking non-dilutive investment options to help fuel our growth and TIMIA’s revenue financing approach was the perfect fit for us. The team was a pleasure to work with and the deal was done within weeks.”
