These H1 results look pretty sound given the events during the period: https://www.investegate.co.uk/apax-global-alpha-ld--apax-/rns/2020-interim-results-highlights/202008250700050183X/ 20% discount to NAV of 196p looks excessive. (And Duck uplift not included. They're also expecting more exits in H2.) (IC had an article last week about PE companies. There's no consistency in the distribution of premiums/discounts.)

Excellent presentation by the company in their online "Investor Update" at lunchtime today. It gave a very good insight into the way the company operates and how it is coping with the Covid 19 crisis. Slides from the presentation have now uploaded onto their website: www.apaxglobalalpha.com/media/2157/aga-2020-combined.pdf

hope so! 2 of the best performing trusts underlying editda growth wise (their holdings) and nav wise - ICG and Oakley are on huge discounts - oakley especially looks like a great buy here given the director buys.

These have been well bid for following the recent Q3 results but there could still be more to come when compared to the other equally decent private equity trust, BMO (ticker BPET). APAX disc. 8%, BMO disc. 4%. APAX div 5.4%, BMO div 4%.

Hi Jonwig, i agree the increase in NAV here looks appealing and reading the report some of their portfolio appears to have significant traction. The discount although widened by historical standards for APAX isn't actually that large compared to the sector NBPE, SLPE. The funds which don't pay a dividend seem to have less of a discount HVPE for example.

Half-year report: https://www.investegate.co.uk/apax-global-alpha-ld--apax-/rns/2019-interim-report-and-accounts/201908140700049417I/ Nav at 30/06 was €1.88 which would now be 194p. A 20% discount looks far too high even in these markets. Div would annualise to ~9.7p if 5% of NAV.
