abrdn Private Equity Opportunities Trust — Resilient NAV and stable balance sheet

abrdn Private Equity Opportunities Trust (APEO) posted a 12-month NAV TR of 5.1% to end-September 2023 amid persistently muted exit activity across PE markets and FX headwinds from stronger sterling. APEO’s drawdowns continue to outpace distributions, but the 12-month net capital calls were more than offset by the proceeds APEO received from the partial sale of its co-investment in non-food discount retailer Action. As a result, APEO’s balance sheet headroom, as measured by its commitment coverage ratio, remained broadly stable versus end-2022. Its discount to NAV of 44% is wider than its 10-year average of 23% and the c 10% average discount for buyout portfolios traded in the secondary markets in H123.

APEO on a 43% discount surely vulnerable to some sort of corporate activity after today's news.

Outlook from the Manager

"We are delighted with the constant currency growth in the portfolio during the quarter to 30 June 2023. This means that the APEO portfolio has experienced quarter on quarter valuation growth in constant currency across the first three quarters of FY23.

In spite of the relatively low levels of private equity M&A activity in 2023 to date, APEO's cumulative distributions have remained resilient in FY23 at GBP162.0 million, with one month of the financial year remaining. This compares with GBP210.2 million in the whole of FY22, which was a record year for APEO distributions.

As we look forward, there are indications in the market that private equity M&A activity could begin to pick up over the next 6 months from the relatively low levels seen in 2023 thus far. If this happens, APEO stands to benefit from increased exit activity in its portfolio, both in terms of distributions and NAV growth (given the valuation uplifts that are typically seen on exits).

However, the Manager remains cautious and continues to plan for a more challenging market backdrop. In that context, we take comfort in APEO's balance sheet position, with liquid resources of GBP214.6m available to help navigate any adverse market conditions that may lie ahead."

Might be a good move. Personally sticking with PIN as the buy back should help support the share price or nudge up the NAV if it doesn't.

Suspect APEO stuck with the Phoenix holding (like UKCM) so will try to duck buybacks for as long as possible. (Although could be susceptible to a cheeky bid if Phoenix see the benefit?)

Report to end March 2023

"show resilient NAV performance, with a NAV per share total return of 3.0% and net assets at £1,181.4 million. This performance is testament to APEO's core investment strategy, which has remained focused on partnering with a relatively small cohort of high-quality private equity firms, predominately in the European mid-market.

APEO's underlying portfolio of private companies is made up of businesses that are often amongst the market leaders in resilient sub-sectors and are profitable and cash generative. On the whole, these businesses have continued to grow in spite of the more difficult market conditions.

For example, the top 50 portfolio companies by value in APEO, which equate to 41.1% of portfolio NAV, experienced average earning growth over the last twelve-month ("LTM") of 29.7% at 31 March 2023."

So, good historic news

The Company announces the payment of the second interim dividend in respect of the year ended 30 September 2023 of 4.0 pence per ordinary share (2022: 3.6 pence per ordinary share).

The dividend will be paid on 28 July 2023 to all shareholders on the register on 23 June 2023. The ex-dividend date is 22 June 2023.

The Board expects that, in the absence of any adverse market event, the third and fourth interim dividends will also be 4.0 pence per Ordinary Share, payable in October 2023 and January 2024 respectively, which would make a total dividend payment for the year ending 30 September 2023 of 16.0 pence per ordinary share.

Based on the share price at 12 June 2023, this would represent a 3.5% dividend yield and is an overall increase of 11.1% on the total dividend payment for the financial year ended 30 September 2022 of 14.4 pence per ordinary share.

Nav static for the month, but worth noting this I thought:

"During April, APEO undertook a partial realisation of its holding in Action, the European non-food discount retailer, for portfolio construction reasons, realising EUR20.8 million of cash proceeds at a value equivalent to 100% of 31 December 2022 NAV. The realisation was executed through transactions with existing investors in the 3i 2020 Co-investment Programme. As a reminder, APEO has been an investor in Action since 2011, initially through 3i Eurofund V and then as a co-investor alongside 3i, Action's lead investor. Following the partial realisation, Action remains the largest underlying portfolio company in APEO's portfolio with a remaining value of GBP50.0 million, equivalent to 4.2% of total portfolio NAV."

Increase in dividend confirmed

The Company announces the payment of the first interim dividend in respect of the year ended 30 September 2023 of 4.0 pence per ordinary share (2022: 3.6 pence per ordinary share). The dividend will be paid on 21 April 2023 to all shareholders on the register on 17 March 2023. The ex- dividend date is 16 March 2023.


Based on the share price at 8 March 2023, this would represent a 3.5% dividend yield and is an overall increase of 11.1% on the total dividend payment for the financial year ended 30 September 2022 of 14.4 pence per ordinary share.

Steady as she goes:

This is an update from the estimated NAV at 31 December 2022, whereby 98.8% of the portfolio valuations, excluding new investments, were dated 30 September 2022, adjusted for subsequent cashflows over the period to 31 December 2022.

Estimated NAV

At 31 January 2023, APEO's estimated NAV was 731.5 pence per share (estimated net assets GBP1,124.6 million), representing a 1.4% per share decrease from the estimated NAV at 31 December 2022 of 742.0 pence per share (estimated net assets GBP1,140.7 million). The 10.5 pence decrease in NAV per share reflected losses arising primarily from a 0.6% depreciation in the euro versus sterling during January, a 2.3% depreciation in the dollar versus sterling during January and the fourth interim dividend payment of 3.6 pence per share on 27 January 2023. The cash cost of the fourth interim dividend was GBP5.5 million.

Drawdowns and distributions

APEO paid GBP20.8 million of drawdowns and received GBP18.3 million of distributions during the month of January. The distributions received generated realised gains and income of GBP10.3 million.

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."
