Timios National Corporation Enters Into Agreement With Institutional Investor To Limit Economics And Voting Control

ARLINGTON, Va., May  23, 2013 /PRNewswire/ --  Timios National Corporation ("Timios") (OTCBB: HOMS), a national provider of real estate services to banks, financial institutions and mortgage lenders announced that it has entered into a transaction with its institutional investor, Yorkville Global Investments,  L.P. ("Yorkville"), that will give Timios the ability to limit Yorkville's economics and voting control and preserve the value of its federal net operating loss tax carryforwards ("NOL's").

As part of the transaction, Timios and Yorkville have entered into a loan and collar arrangement ("Loan and Collar Arrangement") in which Timios loaned Yorkville $500,000, secured by 253,434 shares of Series J Preferred held by Yorkville (833,333 common shares as converted). The loan bears interest at 1.09% per annum and matures in 4 years, unless earlier accelerated by Timios. As part of the Loan and Collar Arrangement, Timios will retain the economics of the secured Series J Preferred shares below $.60 per share or greater than $.78 per share, on an as-converted basis. Yorkville has also agreed to give the Company the right over a 6 month period to advance additional sums, not less than $3,274,000, under the same terms and secured by the remaining shares of Series J Preferred held by them. During the 6 month period, Yorkville has also agreed not to sell, transfer or convert any of its Series J Preferred shares in an amount greater than 250,000 common shares, on an as-converted basis.

The transaction with Yorkville was structured in order to preserve the value of Company's NOLs  under Section 382 of the Internal Revenue Code . United States federal income tax rules and Section 382 of the Internal Revenue Code in particular, could substantially limit the use of net operating losses and other tax assets if Timios experiences an "ownership change" (as defined in Section 382 of the Internal Revenue Code). In general, an ownership change occurs if there is a cumulative change in the ownership of Timios by "5 percent shareholders" that increases by more than 50 percent over the lowest percentage owned by such shareholders at any time during the prior three years on a rolling basis. As of March 31, 2013, Timios had an NOL carryforward of approximately $46.7 million.

"These transactions accomplish a number of objectives for Timios. They give Timios the ability over the next 6 months to further limit Yorkville's voting control to 9.9% as well as its economic benefits and they should protect the Company's valuable tax assets by reducing the likelihood of an ownership change under technical IRS rules," said C. Thomas McMillen, the Company's Chairman and Chief Executive Officer
