NB Private Equity Partners Monthly Net Asset Va...






12 May 2010

NB  Private  Equity  Partners  Limited  ("NBPE"  or "the Company"), a closed-end
private  equity fund of funds investment company, today announced an updated Net
Asset Value ("NAV").

As  of 30 April 2010, the unaudited NAV per share was $9.58, which represents an
increase  of 0.2% compared to the  unaudited NAV per share  of $9.55 at 31 March
2010.

The  value of NBPE's  private equity portfolio  as presented in  the April 2010
monthly report was based on the following information:
  * 23% of the private equity fair value was held in credit-related fund
    investments that were re-valued as of 30 April 2010
  * 9% of the private equity fair value was held in publicly traded securities
    that were re-valued as of 30 April 2010
  * 42% of the private equity fair value was held in private equity funds and
    private co-investments using valuation information through 31 March 2010
  * 26% of the private equity fair value was held in private equity funds and
    private co-investments using valuation information through 31 December 2009


During April, NBPE's portfolio value increased due to $2.2 million of unrealized
gains  on  public  equity  securities  and  $1.7  million of unrealized gains on
credit-related  fund investments.  These gains  were offset  by $0.2  million of
negative  foreign exchange  adjustments. In  addition, net  unrealized losses of
$1.6  million were attributable to the  receipt of Q1 2010 valuation information
for  certain  fund  investments  and  private  co-investments.  The Company also
completed  the previously announced sale of  its remaining interest in a certain
large-cap  buyout fund.  The Company received the  proceeds of the final sale in
April,  and  the  sales  of  this  interest  reduced  unfunded commitments by an
aggregate  $13.9  million.  NBPE's  Investment  Manager believes the Company can
generate more attractive risk-adjusted returns by re-deploying this capital into
other private equity investments.

NBPE  expects to issue its  interim management report for  the quarter ended 31
March  2010 in mid to  late May. The  Company is required  to consider, and will
consider,  all known  material information  in preparing  such financial report,
including  information that may become known  subsequent to the issuance of this
monthly  NAV  update.  Accordingly,  amounts  included in the interim management
report may differ from the amounts published in the monthly report.

NBPE  expects to continue  to provide regular  NAV updates within seven business
days of each month's end.

A  breakdown of  NBPE's NAV  can be  obtained in  the April 2010 monthly report,
which  is published on the  Company's website at www.nbprivateequitypartners.com
