|SEP changed its name at the end of January and is now Standard Life Private Equity Trust (SLPE). I have accordingly started a new thread:
Sorry RAM, just noticed that this Header was yours, so if you want to post your own revised Header I will of course delete mine...|
|Time to sell SEP as the £ recovery takes the discount below 15%:
14 December 2016 - Estimated NAV
At 30 November 2016, SLEPET's estimated NAV was 342.3 pence per share (estimated net assets GBP526.3 million), representing a 4.6% per share decrease from the estimated NAV at 31 October 2016 of 358.9 pence per share (estimated net assets GBP551.8 million). The 16.6 pence decrease in NAV primarily reflected unrealised foreign exchange losses arising from a 5.7% depreciation in the euro versus sterling during November.|
|Opening para of a new Research Report by Edison:
Standard Life European Private Equity Trust (SEP) aims to achieve capital growth through investing in a focused portfolio of European (including UK) private equity funds that also give some underlying US exposure. SEP’s NAV total return has outperformed the LPX Europe index, representing a European private equity (PE) peer group, and the FTSE All-Share index over one, three, five and 10 years, with recent returns enhanced by sterling weakness following the UK’s vote to leave the EU. The manager sees anticipated slower UK economic growth as an opportunity for private equity fund managers to generate higher returns, and believes SEP is well positioned to provide investors with access to the countercyclical strategy of actively investing during a recessionary period and exiting as economies recover.

|Note that 3i increased value of Action ( http://uk.advfn.com/stock-market/london/3i-group-III/share-news/3i-Group-PLC-Update-on-Action-valuation/71855421 ) by approx 50% a few days ago. Previously (see below link) was 4% of nav, so...
At 30 April 2016, SLEPET's estimated NAV was 306.7 pence per share (estimated net assets GBP474.7 million), representing a 1.1% per share decrease from the actual NAV at 31 March 2016 of 310.2 pence per share (actual net assets GBP480.2 million). The 3.5 pence movement in NAV reflected unrealised foreign exchange losses arising from a 1.4% decline in the euro versus sterling during April.
Euro down 2.6% since end April.|
|ESTIMATED NAV AT 31 MARCH 2016 WAS 304.9 PENCE PER SHARE (ESTIMATED NAV AT 29 FEBRUARY 2016 WAS 301.5 PENCE PER SHARE)|
The Company is expecting to announce its estimated NAV at 31 March 2016 on 14 April 2016.|
|Kenmitch posted this on the Mike Walters site:
The excellent John Barron who runs a very successful Investment Trust portfolio in Investors Chronicle has just bought SEP for his Growth portfolio.
He points out the very focused portfolio, with 11 investments making up around 80% of NAV. He claims large holdings like this enable the Managers to get to know these companies well. He also notes that the portfolio is mature and that the NAV is conservatively valued and could be nearer to 340p than the quoted 301p.
He reckons the outlook both for the sector and SEP is good.
This was obviously the reason for Friday's rise; and it would be normal for a further follow through next week.|
|TRANSACTION IN OWN SHARES
On 31 March 2016 Standard Life European Private Equity Trust plc (the "Company") purchased for cancellation 1,000,000 ordinary shares of 0.2p each at a price of 204.00p per share.
Therefore, the total number of shares with voting rights in the Company is 154,776,294.|
|picked up a small number, and getting the ducks in a row to pick up some more next week. I am very underweight Europe, so happy to pick them up.|
|Yes, € rise v £ helping out nicely. With around 50% of port from 2005 and earlier, there should be plenty of (non Sterling) cash flowing out over next couple of years. And note that 100% of port is at 31/12 valuations, so fairly up with events. All in all, I can't see anything that justifies the current discount.
|NAV announced to end Feb'16 as 301.5p! Still available to BUY @ 194p for an anomalous 35.7% Discount. Get a few in whilst you can...|
|This is hovering around a 25% discount, based on 30 sept nav. Seems a bit cheap compared to historical norm. Portfolio has been doing ok after taking into account euro effect. Board and management not over sleepy types and finals due in dec. I think prob a buy at current price of 209-213p, the same price that two senior management bought £52k and £110k of shares at in july. imho

-- SLEPET RECEIVED GBP6.8 MILLION OF DISTRIBUTIONS AND PAID GBP5.8 MILLION OF DRAW DOWNS DURING THE MONTH OF SEPTEMBER
-- OUTSTANDING COMMITMENTS OF GBP245.8 MILLION AT 30 SEPTEMBER 2015
SLEPET's valuation policy for private equity funds is based on the latest valuations reported by the managers of the funds in which the Company has holdings. In the case of SLEPET's valuation at 30 September 2015, 100% of the reported portfolio valuations were dated 30 June 2015.
At 30 September 2015, SLEPET's estimated NAV was 278.7 pence per share (estimated net assets GBP434.2 million), representing a 0.5% per share increase from the estimated NAV at 31 August 2015 of 277.2 pence per share (net assets GBP432.0 million). The 1.5 pence movement in NAV primarily reflected unrealised foreign exchange gains arising from a 1.1% appreciation in the euro during September.
