~Exit from Paltech Solutions, dba 7Geese, generates another successful outcome for a TIMIA portfolio company and highlights effectiveness of TIMIA’s fintech platform~
VANCOUVER, BC – September 28, 2020 – TIMIA Capital Corporation (“TIMIA” or the “Company”) (TSX-V:TCA/OTC: TIMCF) today announced its successful exit from a previously announced financing made with Paltech Solutions, dba 7Geese Inc, of Vancouver, BC. (“7Geese”).
In May 2018, TIMIA provided a $1.75 million investment facility to 7Geese, advanced in three tranches beginning in September 2018. Over the term of the financing 7Geese has paid TIMIA $2,261,650 in a combination of return of principal and interest.
“We can add 7Geese to a growing list of technology entrepreneurs who have benefited from TIMIA’s non-dilutive financing model,” said Mike Walkinshaw, CEO of TIMIA. “7Geese was able to use the financing facility provided by TIMIA to continue expanding their performance management platform, without subjecting themselves to costly and dilutive equity financing. There are many SaaS companies in Canada with similar growth and revenue attributes which are seeking financing and TIMIA is in a position to help without impacting ownership structure to the benefit of entrepreneurs.“
TIMIA’s fintech platform produces periodic gains from early redemption of investment financings, like 7Geese, which can have a meaningful impact on the Company’s EPS.
Over its five year history, TIMIA has exited 11 revenue finance investments, out of the total of 30 investments it has made, generating total gains of over $2.8 million in its consolidated income statement. Furthermore, from the inception of the revenue financing model to date, TIMIA has never realized a loss of capital on any of its investments.
TIMIA is continuously seeking new and exciting investments in the technology industry with recurring revenue and invites those companies requiring financing to register on timiacapital.com. Under TIMIA’s revenue-based financing model, TIMIA advances capital to technology businesses with a recurring revenue stream that allows the portfolio company to make monthly payments on a repayment schedule sculpted to the portfolio company’s revenue streams.
The Company expects to make further investments in the coming months, in the pursuit of its business model, which is to earn a combination of monthly payments and periodic gains on investments.
