VANCOUVER, BRITISH COLUMBIA, Oct 26, 2015 (Marketwired via COMTEX) — TIMIA Capital Corp. (“TIMIA” or the “Company”) (TCA) is pleased to announce that it has raised a further $1.0 million under its convertible debenture offering (“Debentures”) as initially announced by TIMIA on April 13, 2015. This raise is in addition to the $522,500 first close on the Debentures announced on August 4th, 2015, bringing the total amount raised under the Debentures to $1.52 million.
The Company continues to raise the remaining $477,500 of the originally authorized $2 Million Debenture.
The Debentures are unsecured, pay 8% interest with semi-annual compounding, paid monthly and will mature five (5) years from the date of issuance with an option for early redemption by the Company after three (3) years. The Debentures are convertible at the option of the holder into common shares of the company at a conversion price of $0.14 per share. The Debentures, and any common shares issuable upon conversion thereof, will be subject to a four-month hold period in accordance with applicable securities laws. The offering is subject to the approval of the TSX Venture Exchange.
The proceeds of this offering will be used only to make investments in Revenue-Based Financing (“RBF”) instruments and will not be used to fund operations. RBF is financing provided to early revenue stage companies that is paid back via a royalty on sales as opposed to a fixed payment.
RBF is attractive to companies that are not yet qualified for traditional bank debt but do not want to suffer the dilution and control issues associated with equity issuances. Revenue growth and high gross margins are key attributes required by applicants in order for the successful application of RBF.
