Net Asset Value as of May 31, 2023

As of May 31, 2023, the Net Asset Value (NAV) per share of Private Equity Holding AG (PEH) stood at EUR 155.95 (CHF 151.84), representing an increase of 3.8% in EUR (2.9% in CHF) since April 30, 2023.

PEH's portfolio performance was positive in May. The strong NAV increase results from both favourable FX developments and positive valuation adjustments for several portfolio funds including Pelion VI and Abry IX and the direct co-investments in dss+, a specialized consulting company, Guala Closures, a market leader in the production of aluminium and “non-refillable” closures, and Earnix, an artificial intelligence software provider for the insurance industry.

The portfolio was cash-flow positive with total distributions amounting to EUR 2.6m vs. EUR 2.0m paid into the portfolio. PEH received noteworthy distributions from Abry IX, distributing proceeds from the fund's exit of Reward Gateway, a SaaS based employee engagement platform, as well as from Evolution Technology, distributing proceeds from the sale of LogPoint, a cybersecurity platform.

In early June, PEH received a significant distribution of USD 20.7m from the sale of 80% of its direct co-investment in dss+, in which PEH co-invested USD 4.2m in 2019 alongside Gyrus Capital. The partial realisation strengthens PEH's liquidity base and allows PEH to pay back a large tranche of the outstanding credit facility and to pay the dividend, which was approved by shareholders at the Annual General Meeting which took place in Zug, on June 5, 2023.

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.
