~ Fintech platform identifies two SaaS companies as candidates
for non-dilutive investments from Limited Partnership II ~
VANCOUVER, BC – January 29, 2021 – TIMIA Capital Corporation (“TIMIA” or the “Company”) (TSX-V:TCA/OTCQB:TIMCF) today announces that it has originated two investment facilities for growing software companies for an aggregate value of approximately $4.8 million.
One investment facility is in the amount of US$2.5 million (C$3.2 million) made to a US-based software-as-a-service (SaaS) company and includes an initial disbursement of US$1.1 million (C$1.4 million), which has been advanced. The second investment facility of US$1.25 million (C$1.6 million) has been extended to a US-based software company which is an existing client of TIMIA’s that wanted to modify their existing facility. The initial disbursement of US$750,000 (C$960,000) has been advanced and is in addition to retaining their existing fully disbursed facility of US$750,000. In both cases, additional disbursements will be made upon certain milestones being met over the term of the agreement. The source of non-dilutive capital for the two investment facilities is the Company’s Limited Partnership II (“LP II”).
“TIMIA creates value for shareholders by originating and servicing high quality loans for yield investors, thereby generating fees and keeping a share of the profit,” said Mike Walkinshaw, CEO of TIMIA. “Our automated loan origination platform turns an old business model on its head by creating scalability while at the same time lowering transaction costs and increasing credit quality. This value is demonstrated in our revenue growth in Q3 2020 of more than 50% on a year-over-year basis, despite a global pandemic. We look forward to continued growth into 2021.”
TIMIA has developed a proprietary, scalable, technology-driven fintech platform to originate investments and earn higher risk-adjusted returns. The Company is driving growth by identifying revenue producing SaaS growth companies for investment by TIMIA’s LP II through non-dilutive investment facilities.
TIMIA invites growing SaaS 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 SaaS 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.
The Company also announces that its Board of Directors has approved the grant of 490,000 stock options to staff and officers which are exercisable into common shares of TIMIA at a price of $0.19 per common share in accordance with TSX Policy 4.4, subject to the rules of the TSX Venture Exchange and the Corporation’s Stock Option Plan. Of the 490,000 options, Officers received 200,000 with the staff receiving the remainder. The options have a term of five years and will expire on January 18th, 2026.
