Month to 31 January 2024


PIP announced an unaudited net asset value ("NAV") per share of 474.7p as at 31 January 2024, a decrease of 2.7p (-0.6%) from the NAV per share as at 31 December 2023.

In the month to January 2024, valuation losses* were -1.1p (-0.2%), foreign exchange movements* were -1.3p (-0.3%), share buybacks added +0.5p (+0.1%) and expenses and taxes**** were -0.8p (-0.2%).

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 as at 31 January 2024, 9% of reported valuations are dated 31 January 2024 or later, 6% are dated 31 December 2023, 79% are dated 30 September 2023, 6% are dated 30 June 2023. Of the 9% of valuations dated 31 January 2024 or later, 7.2% reflect the mark-to-market fair value adjustment for PIP's listed company holdings.

At 31 January 2024, PIP's private equity assets stood at £2,404m, whilst net available cash balances^ were £13m. The Asset Linked Note^^ ("ALN") outstanding as at 31 January 2024 amounted to £29m. Undrawn commitments to investments stood at £755m as at 31 January 2024, calculated using exchange rates at that date. PIP maintains a five-year £500m^^^ multi-tranche, multi-currency revolving credit facility. As at 31 January 2024, £136m was drawn down under the loan facility, resulting in a net debt to NAV ratio of 5.5%.^^^^

On 12 January 2024, PIP agreed a private placement of $150m (£118m) of loan notes. The transaction provides PIP with access to long-term funding at a US$ coupon rate of 6.49%, which is cheaper than the all-in cost of the credit facility. Proceeds from the loan notes were received on 1 February 2024 and were used to repay the RCF shortly thereafter.


New Investments


PIP made a £6.7m co-investment in a US-based provider of outsourced healthcare communications, clinical trial recruitment and medical affairs services to biopharma clients.


During the month, PIP also invested £4.5m in share buybacks, acquiring 1,435,000 shares at a weighted average price of 310.5p per share. This price represented an average discount of 34.9% to the prevailing NAV per share at the time of the transactions.


*Figures are stated net of movements associated with the ALN share of the reference portfolio. Valuation movement includes the mark-to-market fair value adjustment of listed company holdings.

** Ratio of net available cash, portfolio value and undrawn loan facility to outstanding commitments. Outstanding commitments relating to funds outside their investment period (>13 years old) were excluded from the calculation as there is a low likelihood of these being drawn. This amounted to £42.7m as at 31 January 2024.

***Based on the change in the ordinary share price over the period.

****Operating expenses, financing costs and withholding taxes on investment distributions.

^Net available cash calculated as cash and net current assets / (liabilities) less undistributed net cashflows associated with the ALN.  

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

^^^PIP maintains a £500m multi-currency credit facility. The overall loan facility comprises facilities of US$487.7m and €115.7m and had a sterling equivalent value of £481.7m as at 31 January 2024. As at 31 January 2024, PIP had drawn down £135.6m of the loan facility.

^^^^Net debt calculated as borrowings (excluding the outstanding balance of the Asset Linked Note) less net available cash. The ALN is not considered in the calculation of gross borrowings or the loan-to-value ratio, as defined in PIP's credit facility and note agreements. If the ALN is included, net debt to NAV was 6.7% as at 31 January 2024.
