Business review (at 30 June 2022)

NAV decrease of 2% during June 2022

  • 1.9% NAV decline ($26 million) during the month of June as a result of a decline in value of quoted holdings
  • 0.6% NAV decrease ($8 million) from negative FX movements, primarily attributable to changes in the EUR/USD rate
  • The monthly NAV estimate does not incorporate any Q2 private valuation information; Q2 valuation information will be incorporated as received in future monthly NAV updates. NBPE expects to issue its interim financial report in September 2022

$119 million of announced realisations in 2022

  • 2022 year to date announced realisations of $119 milllion1
    • Five full or partial sales announced in 2022 include: the remaining assets of Telxius, the announced full sales of Leaseplan and Omega Environmental Technologies, the partial realisation of MHS Global and the sale of an additional unannounced transaction which was signed in June but has not yet closed2
    • These five announced full or partial sales are expected to generate a 2.9x gross multiple of capital and an 8% uplift from 31 December 2021 valuations

Investment Activity

  • NBPE is well placed to make new investments and is continuing to evaluate new opportunities as the market develops
