Net asset value as of October 31, 2022
As of October 31, 2022, the net asset value (NAV) per share of Private Equity Holding AG (PEH) amounted to EUR 156.83 (CHF 155.23), an increase of 0.2% in EUR ( 3.1% in CHF) since September 30, 2022.
Portfolio performance was positive in October despite unfavorable currency movements. The increase in net asset value resulted from positive valuation adjustments for several portfolio funds, including ALPHA CEE Opportunity IV, Eagletree IV and Mid Europa Fund IV, which benefited from positive movements in certain listed investments, e.g., Allegro, a Polish online e-commerce platform, Kaspi. kz, the largest payments, marketplace and fintech ecosystem in Central Asia, and Corsair, a global brand of high-performance peripherals and computing hardware focused on the PC gamer market.
PEH received notable distribution from Highland Europe II, distributing proceeds from the sale of Threads Styling, a luxury fashion and jewelry retailer.
Notable capital calls were received from Investindustrial VII, to fund follow-on investments for Parker Food Group, a North American-based specialty food ingredient developer and manufacturer and Italcanditi, an ingredient and cream supplier fruit-based based in Italy.
