Detailed Financial Review
During the year ended November 30, 2019, the Company continued to grow its revenue-financing (“RF”) business by completing 9 RF investments as well as successfully exiting 1 investment from its loan portfolio. The Company’s revenue is primarily interest income generated under the Company’s RF model. Interest income in the year ended November 30, 2019 was a record $3,046,608 compared to $1,521,999 in the prior fiscal year.
The 100% increase in interest income is driven from two sources:
- As the Company makes new investments, the number of monthly payments derived from the portfolio grows.
- Under the RF structure, as the revenue of the underlying portfolio grows, the investees make larger blended interest and principal payments to the Company.
Income from transaction and other fees was $241,655 in the year ended November 30, 2019 compared to $216,240 in the prior fiscal year, resulting in a record total revenue of $3,288,263.
TIMIA continues to build the value and size of its portfolio by making new investments and follow-on investments in existing portfolio companies, and actively assisting in their growth plans. Furthermore, management expects the payment amounts to increase over time as both new and follow-on investments are made and as payments increase from the underlying portfolio. During the year ended November 30, 2019, TIMIA benefited from increased payments (combined principal and interest) as a result of the strong revenue growth of its underlying portfolio. At the same time, the Company increased its investments in infrastructure, including key staff and brand awareness.
Total expenses for the year ended November 30, 2019 were $3,461,837 compared with $2,873,167 for the prior year. The increase in expenses reflect TIMIA’s investment in infrastructure, increase in interest expense resulting from the issuance of debentures with warrants, marketing and related deal origination expenses and brand awareness.
During the year ended November 30, 2019, the Company posted net loss of $1,087,567 compared with net income of $18,838 for the last fiscal year. The year over year change is primarily due to the Company recognizing intermittent investment gains from loan buyouts of $1,582,906 in 2018 but no material gains in 2019.
As at November 30, 2019, the Company’s cash balance was $4,662,156 and working capital was $4,571,341 compared to $3,749,949 and $3,614,268 respectively as at November 30, 2018.
