22 October 2009

NB Private  Equity  Partners Limited  ("NBPE"  or "the  Company"),  a
closed-end private  equity fund  of funds  investment company,  today
announces the publication of a Circular (the "Circular") in  relation
to its  proposed  issue  of  zero  divided  preference  shares  ("ZDP
Shares"). The indicative terms of the Company's ZDP Share issue  were
announced on 7 October 2009.

In relation to the ZDP Share  issue, the Company is required to  seek
certain  shareholder  consents,  including  shareholder  approval  of
certain changes  to  the  Company's Articles  of  Incorporation  (the
"Articles") in  order  to establish  the  rights (summarised  in  the
Circular) which will attach  to the new ZDP  Shares. The adoption  of
the Company's new Articles will  require the approval of the  Company
by special resolution (which  will involve the  passing of a  written
resolution by the holder of the Company's Class B Shares) and of  the
Company's Class  A Shareholders  by ordinary  resolution at  a  class
meeting of the Class A Shareholders (the "Class Meeting").

The Class Meeting will take place  at 10.30am on 13 November 2009  at
Heritage Hall, Le Marchant Street, St. Peter Port, Guernsey GY1  4HY,
and Forms of Proxy must be  returned in the manner indicated  thereon
by 10.30am on 11 November 2009.

It is expected that the final terms of the ZDP Shares and the  target
size of the issue will be announced in due course. Capitalized  terms
used but not defined in  this announcement shall, unless the  context
requires otherwise, have the same meaning as in the Circular.
