1) Secure Financing – As Trilennium has large capital requirements for its acquisitions, it has pursued a non-traditional debt financing path. Trilennium has entered an agreement with FH Global Group Ltd to create an Asset Backed Stock Offering and supply $1B (USD) in collateral, in the form stocks in a publicly traded company . These shares, when transferred into Trilennium’s treasury, will allow Trilennium to borrow funds from an Accredited Institutional Buyer, like a bank, hedge fund, pension fund or similar. Trilennium anticipates being able to borrow 75% LTV or $750m.
These funds are fully secured, as Trilennium will use part of the proceeds of the loan to purchase a portfolio of whole life insurance policies, making the lender the beneficiary of the portfolio. This Senior Life Settlement (SLS) program returns 150% to the lender, after 10 years, or $1.5B. The SLS proceeds are used to retire the original loan, making the loan, non-recourse to Trilennium. Trilennium will net approximately $350m USD from this transaction, which will be deployed as acquisition capital.
Subsequent to the FH Global agreement Trilennium has entered into a further agreement with 2NG Holdings Ltd to assist in securing Funding-Loan/Credit facility in the amount of a planned aggregated total $50.2 Million (USD) for the purpose of initial software platform launch the Trilennium Social Purpose Outcome Engine (“SPOE”) and subsequent acquisition of developed enterprises and as per negotiated merger and acquisitions service delivery process.
2) Build Platform – Trilennium intends to build a Platform as a Service (PaaS) to create an industry wide integration architecture. This platform will have differentiated services for acquired companies vs. non-acquired companies, but will serve to create industry software development standards, amalgamate the “cottage industry” software offerings, and create the big data sets required to do systemic analysis. Trilennium will create and foster an ecosystem of applications, in an “app store” and provide standards, integration and orchestration of services enabling the apps to work together across the same information, processes, and the industry.
3) Source Companies – Trilennium is currently analyzing SaaS Philanthropy universe to identify potential target companies. This is a first level screening. Prospect companies will be engaged in an Acquisition process using Trilennium’s custom built Acquisition Platform, which is a staged due diligence process. Trilennium has contracted Future Innovate to build the Acquisition Platform. Future Innovate. All Prospect Companies will be plotted on a grid of Financial Value vs. Strategic Value, with those of the higher combined values being pursued through the complete 5 stages of due diligence to acquisition. Trilennium also plans to retain TEC of Montreal to complete the technical analysis of all prospective acquisitions.
4) Secure Buy-Side Advisory Firm – Trilennium plans to recruit a global and experienced buy-side acquisition advisory firm, capable of working with Trilennium’s data and processes to screen, qualify and assist to close prospective companies.
5) Secure Integration Team – the art and science of M&A is in the integration of acquired companies, technology, and personnel. Trilennium plans to recruit and retain an experienced integration partner to assist to establish and facilitate corporate integration in the first 3 years of operation.
6) Recruit Talent – Trilennium is collaborating with a Toronto based technology recruiting firm to build out its skill set matrix and professional profiles for its Board recruits and additional C-suite talent. Trilennium intends to have its full management team in place prior the launch.
7) Lean Operations – Trilennium anticipates operating a lean shop, with each acquisition bringing cash flow, customers, technology, management, and sales teams to be integrated into the corporation
