Annual financial report


Not sure how relevant the key headline NAV figures are when the results are already 4 months behind the clock.

The outlook is equally a mixed bag - "both the Board and the Manager expect this tough environment to persist in the short to medium term, which will continue to have an impact on the performance of APEO as inflationary pressures persist in the underlying portfolio companies and private equity valuations continue to experience headwinds."

on the plus side this will through up attractive opportunities which APEO can access with its credit "I believe that the quality and diversification of the existing portfolio, and its strong balance sheet, will help to position APEO well during these challenging market conditions and will allow APEO to continue to generate attractive long-term returns to shareholders in the coming years."

FX reverses. Cash in, cash out, still balancing:

At 31 October 2022, APEO's estimated NAV was 725.8 pence per share (estimated net assets GBP1,115.8 million), representing a 2.9% per share decrease from the estimated NAV at 30 September 2022 of 747.2 pence per share (estimated net assets GBP1,148.9 million). The 21.4 pence decrease in NAV per share reflected losses arising primarily from a 2.2% depreciation in the euro versus sterling during October, a 3.1% depreciation in the dollar versus sterling during October, and the third interim dividend payment of 3.6 pence per share on 28 October 2022. The cash cost of the third interim dividend was GBP5.5 million.

Drawdowns and distributions

APEO received GBP29.7 million of distributions and paid GBP26.1 million of drawdowns during the month of October. The distributions received generated realised gains and income of GBP20.0 million.

FX doing its job:

At 30 September 2022, APEO's estimated NAV was 747.2 pence per share (estimated net assets GBP1,148.9 million), representing a 1.8% per share increase from the estimated NAV at 31 August 2022 of 734.1 pence per share (estimated net assets GBP1,128.6 million). The 13.1 pence increase in NAV per share reflected gains arising primarily from a 1.5% appreciation in the euro versus sterling during September, and a 4.1% appreciation in the dollar versus sterling during September.

I bought a few today. Must be on approx 45% discount. But only approx 19% of nav is US$, so not had the same currency boost as most of the others:

14 September 2022

abrdn Private Equity Opportunities Trust plc ("APEO" or "the Company") announces its estimated net asset value ("NAV") at 31 August 2022

-- Estimated NAV at 31 August 2022 was 734.1 pence per share (estimated NAV at 31 July 2022 was 710.4 pence per share)

-- Excluding new investments, 99.0% by value of portfolio dated 30 June 2022 (estimated NAV at 31 July 2022 was 98.2% dated 31 March 2022)

-- APEO received GBP18.9 million of distributions and paid GBP6.1 million of drawdowns during the month of August

"abrdn Private Equity Opportunities (APEO) has recently been trading at discounts to NAV in excess of 40%, way above its long-term average of around 16-17%, suggesting that the market is pricing in an NAV fall comparable to that seen during the GFC. Alan Gauld, APEO’s lead portfolio manager, thinks this is nonsensical, and we agree."

APEO NAV as at Jun'22 up again to 727.3p At 406p the discount = 44.2%.

Currency risk with the Euro; nevertheless this joins HVPE & PIN as the highest discount plays; and at least APEO pays a dividend. Yield = 3.55%.

No nav slippage as move to end March valuations:

Estimated NAV at 31 May 2022 was 715.2 pence per share (estimated NAV at 30 April 2022 was 704.3 pence per share)

APEO's valuation policy for private equity funds and co-investments is based on the latest valuations reported by the managers of the funds and co-investments in which the Company has interests. In the case of APEO's valuation at 31 May 2022, excluding new investments, 90.6% by value of the portfolio valuations were dated 31 March 2022. The value of the portfolio is therefore calculated as the 31 March 2022 valuation, adjusted for subsequent cashflows over the period to 31 May 2022.

This is an update from the estimated NAV at 30 April 2022, whereby 97.0% of the portfolio valuations, excluding new investments, were dated 31 December 2021, adjusted for subsequent cashflows over the period to 30 April 2022.

Estimated NAV

At 31 May 2022, APEO's estimated NAV was 715.2 pence per share (estimated net assets GBP1,099.6 million), representing a 1.5% per share increase from the estimated NAV at 30 April 2022 of 704.3 pence per share (estimated net assets GBP1,082.9 million). The 10.9 pence increase in NAV per share reflected gains arising from a 0.9% uplift in the valuation of investments as at 31 March 2022, in addition to a 1.1% appreciation in the euro versus sterling during May.

The change of name was approved by the Company's shareholders at the Annual General Meeting on 22 March 2022, and the Company has today received final approval from Companies House to effect the change.

In line with the change in name, the Company's ticker will change to APEO with effect from 5 April 2022. The Company's SEDOL and ISIN are unchanged.
