Trinity Capital Investment Announces Third Quarter 2016 Results

Leading venture debt provider Trinity Capital Investment (Trinity) today announced results for the third quarter 2016. The company committed $32.6 million of equity and debt capital and funded seven portfolio companies for a total of $30.6 million. Financial results for the third quarter ended September 30, 2016 and reflect Trinity’s unique ability to meet the debt financing needs of portfolio companies across a wide range of industries. Trinity also recently released “The Value of Venture Debt Explained,” a video that communicates the value of venture debt to fast-growing companies and their investors.

Third Quarter 2016 Loan/Lease Highlights:

  • $3 million to new portfolio company Everalbum, the No. 1 productivity app in over 75 countries. Everalbum automatically backs up photos and videos so they can be accessed at any time across multiple devices.

    “I was thoroughly impressed with Trinity from the very first call. Due to their systematic approach, the entire process was transparent and surprisingly smooth,” said Andrew Dudum, COO of Everalbum. “Trinity has a world-class team of incredibly talented people; they all contributed to make this transaction an unbelievably positive experience.”
  • $8 million to new portfolio company Vertical Communications, a leading provider of unified communications and IP telephony solutions for enterprise and SMB customers.

    “Trinity took the time to understand our business and tailored a financing package to specifically meet our needs,” said David Krietzberg, CFO of Vertical Communications. “Throughout the process their team was engaged, available, and pleasant to work with at all times.”
  • $10 million to new portfolio company Localytics, the mobile engagement platform developed to improve mobile app acquisition, engagement and retention efforts.
  • $8.5 million of follow-on investments and $1.1 million of equity investments to existing portfolio companies.

Trinity’s recently released video, “The Value of Venture Debt Explained,” is based on a complex realistic model developed by the company. “The value of venture debt can be misunderstood. We hope this video helps to educate entrepreneurs on the benefit of capitalizing their business with both equity and debt financing,” said David Erhart, partner at Trinity Capital Investment. “As a complement to equity financing, venture debt provides growth capital to extend the cash runway of a startup company in order to achieve the next milestone while minimizing equity dilution for both employees and investors.”

Trinity has funded nearly $100 million of debt capital per year the past few years and expects to nearly double investment activities beginning in 2017. The company recently announced the addition of a third fund, Trinity Capital Fund III, L.P., which is expected to provide an estimated $600 million of additional capital for deployment into high-growth venture capital-backed companies over the next few years.

Trinity provides $2-$15 million of senior and subordinated venture loans as well as equipment lease financing solutions to growing venture capital-backed companies. The company has existing inter-creditor and subordination agreements in place with all of the major technology bank lenders and can quickly provide incremental debt capital to an existing senior debt facility.

DevOps is under attack because developers don’t want to mess with infrastructure. They will happily own their code into production, but want to use platforms instead of raw automation. That’s changing the landscape that we understand as DevOps with both architecture concepts (CloudNative) and process redefinition (SRE). Rob Hirschfeld’s recent work in Kubernetes operations has led to the conclusion that containers and related platforms have changed the way we should be thinking about DevOps and...
