Performance Update at 30 April 2018


Month to 30 April 2018


PIP announced an unaudited net asset value ("NAV") per share at 30 April 2018 of 2,299.7p, an increase of 35.9p (1.6%) from the NAV per share as at 31 March 2018. Valuation gains (10.5p, 0.5%), investment income (0.9p, 0.0%) and foreign exchange movements (35.1p, 1.6%) were offset by Asset Linked Note* ("ALN") financing** (-4.0p, -0.2%) and expenses and taxes*** (-6.6p, -0.3%).

PIP's valuation policy for private equity funds is based on the latest valuations reported by the managers of the funds in which PIP has holdings. In the case of PIP's valuation at 30 April 2018, 100% of reported valuations are dated 31 December 2017 or later.

At 30 April 2018, PIP's private equity assets stood at £1,229m, whilst cash balances were £158m. The ALN outstanding as at month-end amounted to £140m. Undrawn commitments to investments stood at £436m as at 30 April 2018, calculated using exchange rates at that date. PIP's multi-currency revolving credit facilities comprise a US$138.8m facility and a €66.6m facility, which remained completely undrawn as at 30 April 2018.


PIP's portfolio generated net cash of £21.9m during the month, with distributions of £27.4m relative to £5.5m of calls from existing commitments to private equity funds.


PIP completed two new investments during the month, amounting to £12.6m in new commitments. This included a £2.6m secondary investment in an Asian growth equity fund and a £10.0m primary commitment to HgCapital Saturn I, a large buyout fund that will focus on investments in the European software sector.


*Unlisted 10-year note issued on 31 October 2017 whose cost and repayments are linked to a reference portfolio consisting of older vintage funds.


**Reflects movements in the value of the ALN, as a result of the reference portfolio's share of valuation gains, investment income and foreign exchange movements.  A negative ALN financing figure shows financing costs associated with an increase in the value of the ALN, and vice versa.


***Withholding taxes on investment distributions.
