Investment Update


BMO Private Equity Trust PLC announces that the software company Dotmatics, in which the Company has a holding, has entered an agreement for its sale to US based company Insightful Science. The transaction is expected to complete early in Q2.


The investment is led by Scotland based growth equity investor Scottish Equity Partners (SEP) and the company is also held in SEP Fund V. Taking both the co-investment and the holding through the fund together, the transaction values BMO Private Equity Trust's position at £37.7 million or 51 pence per share. This compares with the last published valuation (as at 30 September 2020) of £9.5 million or 13 pence per share.


There is a small rollover into the new combined entity of 12% of the value with the remaining 88% of the value being paid in cash.


The Company expects to release its preliminary results for the year ended 31 December 2020 shortly.
