FirePower Capital Advises Omnimed.com in Connection with New Expansion Capital
FirePower Capital (“FirePower”), Canada’s entrepreneurial investment bank for the lower mid-market, is pleased to announce that it acted as the exclusive advisor to Omnimed.com (“Omnimed”), with regards to its recent debt capital raise completed with the Business Development Bank of Canada (“BDC”).
Xavier Boilard, CEO of Omnimed, engaged FirePower to raise the necessary capital to expand the functionality of its next-generation electronic medical records (EMR) software platform, in a bid to improve on its already impressive 25% market share in Quebec and make gains elsewhere.
“When we started working together, Omnimed was in the final stages of the transition of our platform from licensed to SaaS; as well, we were entering new, fast-growing business lines. This made it difficult for lenders to wrap their heads around our file. The FirePower team helped ‘translate’ our context into language that lenders understood, and got the deal done,” said Mr. Boilard.
FirePower arranged a subordinated debt structure that the Montreal office of the BDC financed.

One of three equal shareholders of Corrosion Service, an infrastructure services company, approached FirePower, seeking to buy out the other two. Although this was a highly sensitive situation, we were able to raise the debt financing necessary for a successful close.
