~TIMIA announces letter of intent to acquire a controlling interest in a second specialty finance company in 2022; Combined company pro forma assets surpass $450 million~

Timia Capital Corporation ("TIMIA" or the "Company") (TSXV: TCA) (OTCQB: TIMCF) a leading innovator in specialty private credit, is pleased to announce it has agreed to acquire approximately 77% of a Canadian-based leading provider of specialty finance lending (the "Target"), for a purchase price of approximately $9.24 million . The total common share valuation of the specialty finance company is $12 million . The vendors of the Target (the "Vendors") and the Target's board and management are at arm's length to the Company.

The proposed acquisition is currently subject to a non-binding letter of intent dated March 24, 2022 . Since signing the non-binding letter of intent, the Company has undertaken due diligence and has recently determined to proceed with negotiation of definitive transaction agreements. Due to competitive issues related to the acquisition, the name of the Target will only be disclosed after closing of the transaction, which is expected on or around June 30, 2022 .

The acquisition will complete by way of $7.7 million cash payment to the Vendors upon closing, plus a $1.54 million unsecured promissory note, bearing interest at 5% per annum payable in 12 months. The Company expects to finance the acquisition through the issuance of debt, and does not contemplate issuing common or preferred stock as part of the purchase price.

For fiscal 2021, the Target had approximately $250 million in assets at year end and generated $6.5 million in revenue with an approximate net loss of $954,445 . The Target has seen 35% revenue growth during calendar year 2021 and is expecting continued strong growth over the next 12 months as it moves toward profitability. During the first quarter of 2022, the Target achieved breakeven and generated approximately $14,000 in net income. The Target had approximately $123.4 million in long-term debt at year-end.

Taking into account the recently announced letter of intent for Brightpath Capital Corporation and Brightpath Residential Mortgage LP I ("Brightpath" - see the Company's news release dated May 5, 2022 ), highlights of the combined company and related financial metrics after giving effect to the contemplated acquisitions include:

  • Pro forma combined assets of approximately $450 million
  • For the year ended December 31, 2021 , key pro forma full year amounts for the combined entity include:
    • Revenue of approximately $29.7 million , an increase over TIMIA's consolidated revenue of $9.7 million for Fiscal 2021
    • Operating expenses of approximately $23.5 million , an increase over TIMIA's consolidated operating expenses of $6.7 million for Fiscal 2021
    • Net income after taxes of $4.5 million , an increase over TIMIA's consolidated net income of $2.4 million .
  • The acquisition is expected to be accretive for TIMIA shareholders within one year of the closing of the transaction based upon forecasted growth and financing costs incurred.

"We are aggressively growing our business through the acquisition of specialty finance companies like the Brightpath acquisition announced last week and this specialty finance company announced today," said Mike Walkinshaw , CEO of TIMIA. "Through these acquisitions we will have materially increased our market size and diversified our scope while improving profitability. Once completed, we will have grown to over $450 million of assets. Our goal is to be the leading provider of specialized private credit to owners, entrepreneurs and other organizations throughout North America while providing unique investment opportunities to Canadian investors."

Completion of the transaction is subject to the following conditions;

  • Execution of definitive transaction agreements,
  • If required, receipt of approval of the TSX Venture Exchange (the "TSXV") for the transaction,
  • Receipt of all necessary third-party consents, and
  • Other customary closing conditions.

The transaction is also subject to a break fee of $200,000 payable by Timia Capital if the transaction does not close before June 30, 2022 . No finder's fees are payable in connection with the proposed transaction.
