“We expanded our family of specialty private credit companies with the acquisition of Pivot Financial in September 2021 bringing TIMIA another strong quarter for revenue,” said Mike Walkinshaw, CEO of TIMIA Capital Corporation. “With our proposed acquisitions representing even more growth, we’re at a key position to leverage our platform to expand into new vertical markets.
