“The Company continues to deliver good results, posting near record revenue for the second quarter,” said Mike Walkinshaw, CEO of TIMIA Capital Corporation. “Our origination platform continues to show its value of originating successful software companies as we distribute growth capital into new and follow-on investments. Our interest income is growing plus we recorded two exits during the second quarter adding to the revenue from settlement of loans. Our marketing team is actively pursuing Canadian and U.S. opportunities through our fintech platform to expand our influence with leading recurring revenue software companies.”

Detailed Financial Review
During the quarter ended May 31, 2021, the Company continued to grow its revenue by distributing growth capital of $4.3 million in new and follow-on investments and exiting from loans totalling $5.1 million.

The Company’s revenue is primarily interest income. As the Company makes new investments, the amount of monthly payments derived from the portfolio grows. Interest income in the three months ended May 31, 2021 was $1.2 million compared to $869,793 in the same period last year, a 33% increase. Combined income from the settlement of loans and transaction and other fees was $682,514 in the three months ended May 31, 2021 compared to $21,393 in the same period last year. The increase in transaction and other fees reflects an increase in total number of new transactions and income from successful exits made during the quarter. Total revenue for the three months ended May 31, 2021 increased 106% to $1.8 million compared to $891,186 for the three months ended May 31, 2020.

TIMIA continues to build the value and size of its portfolio by making new investments and follow-on investments in existing portfolio companies, and actively assisting portfolio companies with their growth plans. At the same time, the Company is investing to support its future growth and the continued development of its fintech platform. Total expenses, including interest expense, for the quarter ended May 31, 2021 were $929,907 compared with $813,794 for the same period last year. The change reflects a decrease in interest expense, share-based payments, and expected credit loss provision, offset by increases in accounting and legal, administrative, management, and director fees, regulatory, investor relations and communications costs, office, travel, systems, and miscellaneous expenses, year over year.

US dollar denominated investments and subsidiaries are required to be converted to Canadian dollars quarterly at the then prevailing quarter end exchange rates. At the start of the Company’s fiscal year, December 1, 2020, the US dollar was trading at 1.30 Canadian Dollars, by the end of the second quarter the US dollar had fallen to 1.21 Canadian dollars. This drop in foreign currency adversely impacts income in several ways including the recognition of unrealised losses on US denominated assets owned directly by TIMIA, and also through the reduction in carried interest income earned by the Company in its capacity as manager of the limited partnerships.

During the quarter ended May 31, 2021, the Company posted net income of $602,034 compared with net income of $478,611 in the same period last year. The year-over-year improvement of $123,423 is primarily due to the continued growth in size of the portfolio and the resulting interest income increase plus the impact of loan exits, offset by the negative impact of a $441,073 foreign exchange loss in quarter ended May 31, 2021 compared with a $354,219 foreign exchange gain reported in 2020.

As at May 31, 2021, the Company’s cash balance was $11.4 million and working capital was $12.1 million, compared with $12.9 million and $11.1 million, respectively, as of November 30, 2020.
