Company news

Investment summary

AUM grew more than 10% in 2017, to c €11.7bn, while further progress was made with re-cycling capital from mature direct and fund investments, with the private equity investment portfolio reduced to c €250m (FY16: c €282m) despite €33m of new SPAC investment (Crescita and IDeaMI). The holding company's net financial position increased to €92.3m (FY16: €48.5m), or c 19% of NAV. NAV per share was lower at €1.91, but the underlying NAV total return (adjusted for the €0.12 per share dividend paid in the year and goodwill impairment of €0.09) was 4.6%. The impairment of historical goodwill had no effect on our sum-of-the-parts (SOP) value, which has increased to €1.92 per share. A distribution of €0.12 per share will be made May 2018, representing a dividend yield of more than 8% and although the discount to our SOP has recently narrowed, it remains above 20%.

Industry outlook

Low interest rates support demand for alternative assets, while fund maturities and other divestments are supporting cash flow for reinvestment in new fund launches, new investments or distributions to shareholders, even after meeting outstanding investment commitments.
