Company news

Investment summary

Alternative assets under management increased to €11.4bn in Q318, driven by new fund launches, with fees up 3.4% ytd. The holding company net financial position was very strong at €140.3m (€0.55 per share, or more than 40% of the share price), continuing to increase with net distributions from private equity fund co-investments. NAV per share was €1.84, up from €1.80 (adjusted for dividends subsequently paid) at the start of the year, but down from €1.87 at end-Q218. We view positively DeA’s plans to cancel 40m of the 52.9m treasury shares acquired through its share repurchase programme, although this will not impact NAV or EPS. DeA has also increased its ownership of its main real estate management subsidiary to 94% from 64.3%, at book value, using cash resources. We believe the transaction strengthens the AAM platform and increases its earnings contribution, at an attractive price, while simplifying the group structure.

Industry outlook

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