Investment summary

DeA will report Q217 results on 8 September. Q117 NAV/share was €1.96 (pro forma ex-div May 2017) and total AUM rose to €11.4bn. DeA continues to be active in its direct investment portfolio, resuming investment in Q1 by taking a 5.8% stake in a newly created and recently listed special purpose acquisition company (‘Crescita’, meaning growth) at a cost of €7.8m, which was followed by partial divestment from Migros and the agreed sale of its Sigla holding, expected to close by year end. The former raised an immediate €17.8m and Sigla proceeds of €11.8m are expected, slightly ahead of the Q1 book value. Despite these positive developments, DeA trades at a significant discount to both NAV and our last published sum-of-the-parts valuation of €1.88/share (based on a Migros price of TRY26.2, lower than the current price). This seems conservative given the new momentum in asset management and the diversity of the investment portfolio.

Industry outlook

Low interest rates support investor demand for alternative asset management, while expected maturities from private equity fund investments should support cash flows over coming years for reinvestment in new fund launches, new investments or distributions to shareholders, even after meeting outstanding investment commitments.
