Net Asset Value as of April 30, 2022
As of April 30, 2022, the Net Asset Value (NAV) per share of Private Equity Holding AG (PEH) stood at EUR 155.74 (CHF 159.69), representing an increase of 1.5% in EUR (1.8% in CHF) since March 31, 2022.
PEH’s positive performance in April was largely driven by the favourable strengthening of the USD versus the EUR and a positive valuation adjustment of dss+, a co-investment alongside Gyrus Capital and global leader in health, safety and environmental consulting and operation risk management. dss+ had a good first quarter of the year and forecasts significant growth in revenues and profitability for the year. On the other side, there have been negative adjustments as well, mainly in respect of listed technology shares held by funds and PEH’s indirect exposure to non-listed investments in Russia.
PEH received noteworthy distributions from Abry Heritage, completing the sale of Aftermath, a trauma and biohazard remediation firm and from Abry VIII, distributing proceeds from the sale of MobileHelp, a medical alert service provider with telehealth capabilities. On balance, however, the portfolio cash-flow was negative in April. Notwithstanding, PEH reduced its bank debt by 38% using excess cash.
The Annual General Meeting will take place on June 2, 2022, and the invitation has been published on PEH’s website.
