Net Asset Value as of April 30, 2023

As of April 30, 2023, the Net Asset Value (NAV) per share of Private Equity Holding AG (PEH) stood at EUR 150.18 (CHF 147.59), representing a change of -1.0% in EUR (-1.9% in CHF) since March 31, 2023.

PEH's portfolio performance was negative in April. Positive valuation adjustments for several portfolio funds including ALPHA CEE Opportunity IV, Mid Europa Fund IV and Clarus Lifesciences III could not fully compensate the adverse FX movements.

The portfolio was cash-flow negative with total distributions amounting to EUR 1.0m vs. EUR 2.7m paid into the portfolio. The biggest distribution was received from Sycamore III, distributing proceeds from a recapitalisation of RONA, a Canadian retailer of home improvement and construction products and services. Clarus Lifesciences III distributed proceeds from various transactions including the sale of shares in Praxis Precision Medicines, a clinical-stage biopharmaceutical company translating insights from genetic epilepsies into the development of therapies for central nervous system (CNS) disorders. The biggest drawdown came from Procuritas VII to fund three transactions, namely investments in Werksta, a leading independent car damage repair chain in the Nordics, We Select, a digital talent acquisition platform on social media, and Nordic Biomarker, a Swedish supplier of advanced reagents for IVD coagulation analysers. 

In the reporting period, PEH committed USD 7.0m to TA XV, a fund targeting growth capital investments in the middle market in the US and Europe.

The NAV of Private Equity Holding AG is calculated at the end of each month under a going concern assumption and usually published within six trading days after the cut-off date.
