Limited Partnership II Highlights:
- Accretive to the Company with no dilution to the shareholders,
- TIMIA has previously provided $1 Million of the capital in LP II, continuing to earn interest revenue from the current investment portfolio while aligning interests with the limited partners,
- TIMIA will increase its consolidated cash position to approximately $10 million,
- TIMIA, through a wholly-owned subsidiary, receives a 1.5% servicing fee to manage LP II as its general partner,
- TIMIA also receives a performance fee based upon the profit of LP II for the life of the fund, subject to investors achieving their preferred return first,
- LP II is denominated in US dollars, reflecting the expected allocation of the majority of LP proceeds into US based companies, and
- LP II can hold follow-on closes over the next 4 months, increasing the non-dilutive capital and assets under management.
TIMIA’S common shareholders are expected to benefit from the non-dilutive capital via the generation of fee income and profit share from the Limited Partnerships, without having to issue dilutive common shares.
TIMIA invites growing technology companies, seeking innovative and non-dilutive financing, to register through the TIMIA fintech platform. Under a revenue-based origination model, TIMIA matches non-dilutive capital to technology businesses with recurring revenue streams, allowing the company to make monthly payments, made up of a combination of principal and interest, with a repayment schedule sculpted to its revenue streams. The amounts advanced are secured and may be repaid early.
