every little helps, and I think the 23% uplift is more significant than the 1p it represents. The question is can you apply such a % uplift across the portfolio? This is a sale to KKR Asia, so its a more specialist fund within the PE family. Better than an internal sale to other Apax funds, but not as strong as a trade sale or IPO in terms of market pricing.

Any realisation is to be welcomed while we continue to trade at such a discount

Profitable exit from Healthium investment which adds [wait for it...] c.£0.01 to Adjusted NAV at 31/3/2024. Not exactly an excuse for cracking open the champagne but every little helps I suppose.

From today's update:
"Following materially deteriorating trading at Vyaire during Q1, AGA has taken a €24m writedown on its value across the Private Equity and Debt portfolios, reducing AGA's Private Equity exposure to Vyaire to c.€5m and Debt exposure to Vyaire's first lien loan to €12m."

Vyaire Medical -

APAX valuation of Vyaire equity holding at 31/12/23 was EUR 27.0m; debt was EUR 14.0m. Combined valuation was thererfore EUR 41.0m.

From Q1 factsheet Vyaire debt has been written down to EUR 11.8m (-2.2m). From today's update we know that combined valuation of equity/debt has been written down to EUR 24m so looks like the equity has been written down from EUR 27.0m to c. EUR 12.2m (-55%).

NAV per share down 16% in both EUR/GBP since its peak in Q3/Q4 2021.

Share price down approx. 37% over same time period.

Has moved from low single digit discount to the current 34% discount.

Opportunity for the patient who are happy to wait for the NAV to return to growth & discount to narrow? To be fair you could probably buy the sector at present and make a decent return over the medium term.

~ Q1 adjusted NAV per share EUR 2.54; -3.1% (GBP 2.17; -4.4%)
~ Total NAV return -0.5% (-1.9% constant currency)
* Total return private equity -1.7% (-3.2% constant currency)
* Total return debt investments +3.5% (+1.8% constant currency)
* Total return derived equity +13.6% (+11.8% constant currency)

Quarterly Results to 31 March 2024 -

Ralf Gruss, Partner at Apax and a member of the AGA investment committee, said:
"While Q1 performance was negatively impacted by developments in one of the Private Equity portfolio companies, we believe AGA's overall portfolio remains in good shape, offering solid value growth for shareholders. We are seeing continued momentum with several new private equity investments since the beginning of the year and there is a good pipeline of both new investments and exits. We believe the current share price significantly undervalues the Company's Private Equity holdings."

Estimated Adjusted NAV as at 31 December 2023 -

AGA estimates its Adjusted NAV2 as at 31 December 2023 to be c.€1,288m (FY22 c.€1,299m) or €2.62 cents per share / £2.27 pence per share. Income from the portfolio and gains were largely offset by c.€65m paid in dividends to shareholders during the year and the impact of FX due to the EUR strengthening against the USD.

FY23 Total Adjusted NAV Return was 4.1% (6.1% constant currency) with Q4 Total Return of 1.9% (4.5% constant currency).

Details on the composition and valuation of the AGA portfolio as at 31 December 2023 (which may differ to those shown in the table below due to the various holding structures through which AGA invests) will be included in AGA's 2023 Annual Results, being released on 5 March 2024.

Commenting on the performance, Ralf Gruss, Partner at Apax and a member of the AGA Investment Committee, said: "Despite weaker economic activity in 2023, there was good momentum across the Private Equity portfolio with deal activity picking up in the second half of the year as more compelling investment opportunities emerged. The Apax Funds' strategy is not predicated on continued market tailwinds and its foundation focuses on buying right at entry and accelerating business performance during the funds' ownership to generate alpha. We believe it is a strategy well suited for the current environment."

Still very poor relative performance vs peers limiting the downside despite technicals showing "sell". I continue to add. Only a matter of time. APAX will eventually be an retirement income trust due to its dividend being taken from NAV and not share price.

@speedsgh From
"(12 Jul 2022) - Matches confirms Nick Beighton as its new CEO,[6] Following this Matches received £60m from Apax[7] to power it's turnaround."

1. Looking through APAX PEIT's December 2022 AR, and the 2023 09 Q3 presentation, Matches is not listed in the top 30 PE investments. The investment quantum in the 30th holding is <1% of reported NAV.
2. APAX PEIT has not released an RNS regarding investment in Matches.

Unless you know any different I can only conclude that the APAX PEIT has an insignificant interest, if any, in Matches.

While APEO is a strong buy contender, APAX has the advantage of investing directly in the underlying holdings, which removes a layer of fees.

Additionally, APAX can opt out of fundraising "commitments" if the return is not as good in today's higher rate environment.

As mentioned, the discount on the actual equity is similar because of the credit business. PE credit is in fashion and is making APAX and other PE companies lots of money. It may be a secular shift or trend going forward.

Rest assured APAX is the better buy for 2024, but as usual, the share price in the short term is unpredictable and personal investors have the opportunity to build a position while there is a institutional seller. The selling usually does not last too long in these types of trusts. I add a little every day under 155p. No stamp duty. Buy and hold through 2024, or as a small allocation to a pension, or trade it to recovery, the choice is yours.

Apax Funds acquire Bazooka Candy Brands -

Apax Global Alpha, the closed-ended investment company providing access to the Apax Private Equity Funds, today announced that it has invested approximately €16.6m in Bazooka Candy Brands ("Bazooka") on a look-through basis1.

On 10th October 2023, the Apax XI Fund ("Apax XI"), in which AGA is a limited partner, announced that it had acquired Bazooka, a portfolio of leading non-chocolate confectionary ("NCC") brands, from Michael D. Eisner's Tornante Company and funds affiliated with Madison Dearborn Partners ("MDP").

Bazooka produces, markets, and distributes a range of iconic confectionary brands, including Ring Pop®, Push Pop®, Baby Bottle Pop®, Juicy Drop®, and Bazooka Bubble Gum®. The Company's portfolio spans lollipops, gummies, chewy candy, and gum, packed in highly unique formats to deliver Edible Entertainment® experiences to generations of customers since 1947. Within the US, Bazooka is a top-10 manufacturer in the NCC category and holds a leading share position in 'front of store sales', a coveted, high margin segment for retailers2. Products are distributed worldwide with c.80% of sales in the US across a broad network of channels, with the remaining c.20% of sales occurring internationally in over 40 countries. Over the past several years, Bazooka's U.S. retail sales growth has significantly outpaced the overall confectionary category, and in the year-to-date period through August 2023, retail sales have grown approximately 29% year-over-year2.


Apax's Internet/Consumer sector team, working in partnership with Bazooka's management team, will look to stand the company up as an independent business and build on the success of Bazooka's global portfolio of beloved confectionery brands. In support of its growth efforts, the team will focus on distribution growth, product innovation, geographic expansion, and the strategic acquisition of brands in complementary categories...
