1) Secure Financing – As Trilennium has large capital requirements to finance its acquisitions, it has pursued the alternative debt financing path. Trilennium has successfully negotiated a substantial loan, on favourable terms, from an international partner. These funds will be used to finance ongoing operations and the first round of acquisitions. Trilennium will be eligible for additional loans from the same source, on a going forward basis. Subsequent to this engagement, Trilennium is in the process of securing a significant loan from a major Hedge Fund. This transaction should be completed by November 30th, 2018. The majority of these funds will be used to purchase additional target companies.
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
