“The new funding will enable the Galway-based innovator to expand its North American footprint and accelerate the global adoption of its Transformation Accelerator platform”
Galway, Ireland – February. 23, 2022 – Tr3Dent Limited. (the “Company” or “Tr3dent”), a leading global provider of an intuitive, end-to-end strategic planning and structured collaboration platform announced that it has successfully closed a private placement of senior secured convertible debentures (the “Debentures”) of CAD $942,500 on December 13, 2021 (the “Offering”) led by Canadian institutional and individual investors. The closing of the Offering follows prior investments into the Company including the initial investment round led by Enterprise Ireland 2017 and brings the Company’s total capital raised to date to just over CAD $2.5M. The Debentures will automatically convert to ordinary shares of the Company upon the closing of a subsequent financing associated with the company seeking a listing on a Canadian stock exchange (the “Go Public”).
With a Go Public event targeted for later this year, this Offering was a critical milestone in executing Tr3Dent’s public listing roadmap. Facilitated by Toronto-based investment and merchant bank Foundation Markets, net proceeds from the Offering will be utilized to expand the company’s sales and business development teams and strengthen its footprint in the North American markets. The closing of the Offering also is expected to allow Tr3Dent to significantly increase its product development team, accelerating the continued growth, innovation and adoption of Tr3Dent’s flagship platform, “Transformation Accelerator,” globally.
The Company has appointed Foundation Markets Inc. as its exclusive financing agent and its affiliate, FMI Capital Advisory Inc., as its exclusive financial advisor (collectively “Foundation Markets”). Foundation Markets intends to lead a subsequent financing for Tr3dent and execute its Go Public initiative in 2022 by way of a reverse take-over. Irish legal advice in connection with the Offering was provided to Tr3dent by Gavin Bluett of MacSweeney & Company Solicitors in Galway.
“This new financing validates our commitment to pioneering cutting-edge, collaborative technology that streamlines the strategic planning process and helps organizations of all sizes intelligently transform ecosystems and unlock new opportunities,” said Kevin McCaffrey, CEO and founder of Tr3Dent. “As we move toward a digital-everything world, it’s becoming increasingly more important to have an intelligent tool that can cut through the noise, visualize complex data, achieve stakeholder buy-in in record time and power the evolution of a business – even in the most tumultuous of times.”
“Backed by a seasoned executive team and innovative technology that meets a critical demand in the market, Tr3Dent has a unique perspective and clear vision for how to effectively cut across different ecosystems and bring all types of development plans to life,” said Mike Durance, CEO and managing director of technology venture capital firm xiVentures Fund and head of corporate development at Tr3Dent. “I’m thrilled to see Tr3Dent capturing the eye of North American investors and look forward to the future of its products.”
Founded and headquartered in Galway, Ireland, Tr3Dent has been an integral part of GMIT (Galway Mayo Institute of Technology) Innovation Hubs (iHubs) since 2015.
“Over the years, Tr3Dent has experienced rapid growth and became a standout innovator in our incubation units,” said George McCourt, head of innovation and enterprise at GMIT Innovation Hubs. “Though laser-focused on the company’s future, Kevin and the Tr3Dent team also became very active in GMIT community. This would be the first GMIT iHubs’ client to raise funding in connection with a anticipated Canadian stock exchange listing, and we are delighted to have supported Kevin and Tr3Dent on this journey.”
