VANCOUVER, BC – TIMIA Capital Corporation (TSX-V:TCA) (“TIMIA” or the “Company”) is pleased to announce that one of its revenue finance investments, iCompass Technologies Inc. (“iCompass”), has executed the early exit provisions of its revenue finance contract with TIMIA.
TIMIA, which had invested $1,250,000 in Kamloops, British Columbia-based iCompass, received an exit payment of $1,606,000, in addition to cumulative monthly payments received to the end of November 30, 2017 of $338,000, for a total of $1,944,000 received over the life of the facility. As a result of this payout, TIMIA will record a realized gain of approximately $300,000 during fiscal Q1, 2018.
TIMIA’s investment strategy is to earn significant returns for its shareholders via a combination of steady monthly payments and intermittent capital gains. These capital gains occur as investee companies are sold or otherwise exit the financing facilities prior to the end of the term. As TIMIA’s sole focus is software technology companies, which are subject to a high rate of mergers and acquisition activity, the management of TIMIA expects further exits to occur in the portfolio over the term of the underlying revenue finance facilities. This forward looking statement is subject to the forward looking disclaimer contained below.
“TIMIA is proud to have been a key investment partner for iCompass over the past 2 years,” says Mike Walkinshaw, CEO of TIMIA. “Our investment capital helped the company expand revenue and access new markets, while allowing the management and investors of iCompass to retain a greater share of their company.”
