“We continue to deliver record growth as we scale the Company through innovative and non-dilutive means,” said Mike Walkinshaw, CEO of TIMIA. “We’ve been able to increase the pace of our investments as a direct result of investments made in our fintech platform.

Detailed Financial Review
During the quarter ended May 31, 2019, the Company continued to grow its revenue financing business by completing three new investments. The majority of the Company’s consolidated direct and LP revenue is interest income generated under its revenue financing business model. Interest income in the quarter ended May 31, 2019 was a record $680,260, an increase of 59%, compared with $428,940 in the same period last year. As TIMIA makes new investments, the number of monthly payments derived from the portfolio grows. Income from transaction and other fees was $154,778 in the three months ended May 31, 2019 compared to $48,000 in the same period last year. This increase is the result of a greater number of signed termed sheets and an increase in the associated upfront fees. 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.

During the quarter ended May 31, 2019, the Company posted a net loss of $493,316 compared with a net income of $769,371 in the same period last year. As noted above, the difference reflects the exit in Quickmobile last year as well as costs incurred with the launch of the new LP. The Company reported an Adjusted EBITDA of $112,091 for the quarter ended May 31, 2019 compared with an Adjusted EBITDA of $974,275 for the same period last year, reflecting similar effects from the gain last year and expenses setting up the LP this year.
As at May 31, 2019, the Company’s cash balance was approximately $5.1 million and working capital was approximately $4.8 million compared with $3.8 million and $3.6 million respectively, as of November 30, 2018.

*Non-GAAP Measures and Other Financial Measures
In managing the business and assessing the Company’s financial performance, it supplements the information provided by the GAAP-based financial statements with metrics and non-GAAP financial measures which are utilized by management to evaluate performance. Although the Company believes these measures are widely used in the specialty finance industry, some may not be defined by the Company in precisely the same way as by other companies in the specialty finance industry, so there may not be reliable ways to compare TIMIA to other companies. Adjusted EBITDA represents a 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, and costs relating to fund structuring that are periodic in nature. TIMIA believes Adjusted EBITDA is a helpful measure because it allows us to evaluate performance by removing from operating results items that do not relate to its 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.
