Detailed Financial Review

During the quarter ended May 31, 2018, the Company continued to grow its revenue-based financing (“RBF”) business by completing two new investments as well as successfully exiting an existing investment. The Company’s revenue is principally interest income generated under the Company’s RBF model. Interest income in the quarter ended May 31, 2018 was a record $428,940 compared with $228,246 in the same period last year, an increase of 88%.  As TIMIA makes new investments, the number of monthly payments derived from the portfolio grows. Consulting revenue was $48,000 in the quarter ended May 31, 2018 compared to $40,000 consulting revenue in the same period last year, resulting in total revenue of $476,940. The increase in total revenue, compared to the same period last year, is primarily due to the increase in scale and improved performance of TIMIA’s portfolio of investments.

The chart below highlights the Company’s revenue growth since Q2 of 2016.

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 the portfolio companies with their growth plans. At the same time, the Company is investing to support its future growth.

Total expenses for the quarter ended May 31, 2018 were $704,677 compared with $372,691 for the same period last year. the Company invested in the business to build a scalable investment platform and attract key personnel, with the following key items being highlighted:

  • Administrative, management and directors’ wages and fees has increased due to a team headcount increase as the organization scales,
  • Office, promotion and miscellaneous has increased as the Company invests in its deal origination engine and its public market activities, and
  • the interest expense is associated with the issuance of convertible debentures and debentures with warrants. Interest expense and share-based payments were higher in the three and six months ended May 31, 2018 because the Company had issued further debentures with warrants to fund additional investments in comparison to the previous year.

Adjusted EBITDA increased $871,247 to $974,275 for the quarter ended May 31, 2018 compared with an Adjusted EBITDA of $103,028 for the same period last year. The increase in Adjusted EBITDA is largely due to the significant gain on investment recognized on the QuickMobile exit.

During the quarter ended May 31, 2018, the Company posted a net income of $769,371 compared with a net loss of $104,462 in the same period last year. The increase in net income is primarily due to the Company recognizing a gain on investments of $1,036,104 on the successful exit of QuickMobile Inc.

As at May 31, 2018, the Company’s cash balance was approximately $4.9 million and working capital was approximately $4.8 million compared with $713,792 and $1,160,034 respectively, as of November 30, 2017.

TIMIA’s business model is delivering two distinct returns that help drive shareholder value:

  1. High yield interest income, as a result of the successful performance of TIMIA’s underlying investments, delivers a stream of profitable cash flow that has been growing, as TIMIA’s asset base grows.
  2. TIMIA is investing in high-quality companies in an active industry. As a result, we’ve seen successful early exits in investee companies such as Lambda, iCompass, Rise, and QuickMobile delivering periodic gains manifesting in profitable quarters. At the same time, TIMIA is focused on investing in new and exciting opportunities to support longer term profitability.

*Non-GAAP Measures and Other Financial Measures

In managing our business and assessing our financial performance, we supplement the information provided by the GAAP-based financial statements with metrics and non-GAAP financial measures which are utilized by our management to evaluate our performance. Although we believe these measures are widely used in the specialty finance industry, some may not be defined by us in precisely the same way as by other companies in the specialty finance industry, so there may not be reliable ways to compare us to other companies. Adjusted EBITDA represents net loss and comprehensive loss from continuing operations (the most directly comparable GAAP measure) excluding amounts for: income tax expense; interest expense; depreciation and amortization; non-cash revenue; non-cash gains; equity-based compensation; and all other non-cash expenses. We believe Adjusted EBITDA is a helpful measure because it allows us to evaluate our performance by removing from our operating results items that do not relate to our core operating performance. Adjusted EBITDA is not a measure of financial performance under GAAP and should not be considered in isolation or as a substitute for net loss and comprehensive loss from continuing operations, the most directly comparable GAAP financial measure. Adjusted EBITDA is not defined in the same manner by all companies and may not be comparable to other similarly titled measures of other companies unless the definition is the same.
