Net Asset Value as of April 30, 2020
As of April 30, 2020, the Net Asset Value (NAV) per share of Private Equity Holding AG, stood at EUR 87.35 (CHF 92.38), representing a decrease of 1.8% in EUR (-2.0% in CHF) since March 31, 2020.
The portfolio showed a mixed performance during the month with both positive and negative valuation adjustments. However, lower valuations for several direct co-investments, including Shawbrook, a UK challenger bank, and Dupont Sustainable Solutions, an independent global operations management consulting firm, as well as listed stock adjustments on Aston Martin and Enanta Pharmaceuticals resulted in the overall negative NAV development.
PEH's portfolio was significantly cash flow positive. Noteworthy distributions were received from Clarus Lifesciences III from the sale of Forty Seven Inc., a clinical-stage immuno-oncology company, focusing on developing cancer therapies, and from Mid Europa Partners IV, distributing proceeds from a partial sale of Profi Rom Food, a leading Romanian convenience supermarket chain. Further distributions were received from Warburg Pincus X related to the investment in CrowdStrike, a leading next-generation, cloud-delivered end-point security platform.
