NBPE Announces Financial Results for the Period...





26 August 2009

NB Private Equity  Partners Limited ("NBPE"  or "the Company")  today
released its Interim  Report and unaudited  financial statements  for
the  period  ending  30  June  2009.   NBPE  will  host  an  investor
conference call  on  10  September  2009  in  order  to  discuss  the
Company's recent performance.

As of 30  June 2009,  NBPE's unaudited  net asset  value ("NAV")  per
share increased  to  $8.35.   This represents  an  increase  of  7.2%
compared to the unaudited NAV per share of $7.79 at 31 March 2009 and
an increase of 1.9% compared to the audited NAV per share of $8.20 at
31 December 2008.

During the second quarter of  2009, NBPE's private equity  investment
portfolio had net realized gains of $1.6 million. The portfolio  also
experienced net  unrealized gains  of $20.6  million associated  with
credit-related fund investments and public equity securities and  net
unrealized  gains  of   $8.6  million  related   to  privately   held
investments.  Interest   and   dividend  income,   foreign   exchange
translation, operating expenses and treasury stock adjustments in the
second quarter  resulted in  a  $2.9 million  decrease in  net  asset
value.

The fair value of NBPE's private equity portfolio as presented in the
Interim Report was based on the following information:

  * 50% of the private equity fair value was held in private equity
    funds using valuation information through 30 June 2009
  * 17% of the private equity fair value was held in credit related
    fund investments that were re-valued as of 30 June 2009
  * 16% of the private equity fair value was held in private
    co-investments using valuation information through 30 June 2009
  * 9% of the private equity fair value was held in publicly traded
    securities that were re-valued as of 30 June 2009
  * 8% of the private equity fair value was held in private equity
    funds using valuation information through 31 March 2009
