~Manitou Total Return Yield Fund Returns for Third Investment in 2018~
VANCOUVER, BC, October 31, 2018 – TIMIA Capital Corporation (TSX-V:TCA /OTC:TIMCF) (“TIMIA” or the “Company”) today announced the closing of $1 Million in non-dilutive capital through the Company’s Co-Investor platform. The Toronto-based Manitou Investment Management Ltd via its Total Return Yield Fund (“Manitou”) had previously invested $2.5 million in TIMIA’s underlying portfolio of private software companies bringing their total commitment as a Co-Investor to $3.5 Million since January of this year.
TIMIA’s Co-Investor platform allows qualified investors to purchase a specified percentage of future cash flows from TIMIA’s current portfolio companies, thereby increasing the amount of non-dilutive capital available to the Company, and creating accretive value for shareholders. As part of TIMIA’s active management process, TIMIA will retain control, title and security position over the underlying portfolio investments.
“We appreciate Manitou’s support and have been happy to generate positive returns for them through the combination of payments from our underlying portfolio and successful exits from a portion of our investments,” said Mike Walkinshaw, CEO of TIMIA. “This capital allows us to maintain the increased pace of investments into SaaS companies in North America, driving further growth in our assets and revenue.”
The Co-Investor’s yield will fluctuate relative to the performance of the underlying investments. TIMIA has made fifteen investments into private software companies or software as a service (or SaaS) companies since inception in 2015, and has successfully exited four of them, providing a combination of monthly yield and periodic gains. The Company’s assets have grown 65% to more than $13.1 million in the last twelve months, both deployed in investments and in cash.
