This announcement contains inside information for the purposes of Article 7 of the Market Abuse Regulations (EU Regulation 596/2014).



Unaudited NAV per Share at 31 December 2020


The Board are pleased to report the unaudited NAV per share of the Company as at 31 December 2020 increased by 9.19 pence (12.7%) over the final quarter of 2020 from 72.30 pence to 81.50 pence per share, principally due to an uplift in the unrealised portfolio valuations and two profitable disposals . Subject to the finalisation of the Company's Annual Report and Accounts, the audited NAV per share as at 31 December 2020 will be announced before the end of March. 


Admission to AIM of Virgin Wines UK plc

The Board is also pleased to announce that, this morning, Virgin Wines UK plc ("Virgin Wines"), an existing portfolio company, was admitted to trading on the Alternative Investment Market ("AIM") of the London Stock Exchange, alongside a placing of new and existing shares. The Placing Price of these shares was £1.97 per share, valuing Virgin Wines at a market capitalisation of £110m. The Board and Mobeus Equity Partners LLP have been proud to partner the management of Virgin Wines in growing this business. We continue to support Virgin Wines and its future development and are pleased to be retaining the Company's entire equity holding.


The Company holds 4,627,424 shares in Virgin Wines. Based upon the Placing Price of £1.97 per share, the Company's equity investment in Virgin Wines is valued at £9.12 million. This represents an uplift in valuation of £4.64 million, compared to that included in the Company's unaudited Net Asset Value ("NAV") per share at 31 December 2020 as above. In isolation, the impact of this uplift in valuation upon the Company's unaudited NAV per share as at 31 December 2020 is an increase of 5.53 pence per share. The Company emphasises that this increase in unaudited NAV per share is in isolation from other changes in the Company's balance sheet, including valuation and other transaction movements in the Company's investment portfolio, that may also have affected the NAV per share since 31 December 2020.


As part of this transaction, the Company will receive payment of its remaining loan stock of £1.09 million, leaving Virgin Wines ungeared at that point.
