HarbourVest Global Private Equity Limited ("HVPE" or the "Company"), a closed-end investment company, today announces its estimated Net Asset Value ("NAV") at 31 March 2021.

HVPE provides a complete private equity solution for public investors, managing the portfolio through four phases of the private equity cycle to create value: Commitments, Investment, Growth, and Realisation.

Commitments

During March, HVPE made one commitment of $25.0 million to HarbourVest's most recent global direct co-investment fund. However, HVPE's Investment Pipeline (unfunded commitments) decreased on a net basis by $47.2 million during the month based on capital funded and foreign exchange rate movements. At 31 March 2021, HVPE's Investment Pipeline totalled $1.51 billion.

Investment

During March, HVPE invested $71.7 million into HarbourVest funds (compared to $17.8 million in February 2021). The largest individual investment during the month was made to a HarbourVest real assets vehicle.

Growth

At 31 March 2021, HVPE's estimated NAV per share was $35.38 (GBP25.67), compared to the 28 February 2021 estimate of $32.44 (GBP23.28). This represents an uplift of 9.1% in US dollar terms over the previous month.

It is important to note that the 31 March 2021 NAV per share is based predominantly on 31 December 2020 marks (see breakdown below). The increase in the March NAV per share over the previous month resulted mainly from year-end 2020 valuation gains.

The valuation breakdown of the HVPE portfolio as reported here is as follows: 14% actual 31 March 2021 (representing the public companies in the portfolio); 72% actual 31 December 2020; and 14% actual 30 September 2020. Consistent with previous estimated NAV reports, valuations are also adjusted for foreign exchange movements, cashflows, and any known material events to 31 March 2021.

At 31 March 2021, the 10-year compound annual growth rate in HVPE's NAV per share in dollar terms was 13.1%, equivalent to a multiple of 3.4x the 31 March 2011 estimate.

Realisation

HVPE received $75.7 million of distributions from HarbourVest funds during March 2021 (compared to $29.2 million in February 2021). The largest source of distributions came from a 2016 vintage global direct co-investment fund. During March, there were a total of 64 liquidity events across HVPE's underlying portfolio compared to February's 37 events, and a last 12-month average of 22.

Balance Sheet and Credit Facility

During March, in anticipation of some larger calls, HVPE drew down a further $30.0 million on its credit facility, taking it to $150.0 million drawn. Borrowing at the HarbourVest fund level amounted to $357.1 million, a decrease of $21.0 million from the previous month. HVPE's cash and cash equivalents ($142.3 million) and available credit ($450.0 million) totalled $592.3 million.

Epidemics, Pandemics and Other Health Risks - Many countries have experienced infectious illnesses in recent decades, including swine flu, avian influenza, SARS and 2019-nCoV (the "Coronavirus"). In December 2019, an initial outbreak of the Coronavirus was reported in Hubei, China. Since then, a large and growing number of cases have been confirmed around the world. The Coronavirus outbreak has resulted in numerous deaths and the imposition of both local and more widespread "work from home" and other quarantine measures, border closures and other travel restrictions causing social unrest and commercial disruption on a global scale. The World Health Organization has declared the Coronavirus outbreak a pandemic. The ongoing spread of the Coronavirus has had and will continue to have a material adverse impact on local economies in the affected jurisdictions and also on the global economy as cross-border commercial activity and market sentiment are increasingly impacted by the outbreak and government and other measures seeking to contain its spread. In addition to these developments having potentially adverse consequences for underlying portfolio investments of the HarbourVest funds and the value of the investments therein, the operations of HVPE, the Investment Manager, and HVPE's portfolio of HarbourVest funds have been, and could continue to be, adversely impacted, including through quarantine measures and travel restrictions imposed on personnel or service providers based around the world, and any related health issues of such personnel or service providers. Any of the foregoing events could materially and adversely affect the Investment Manager's ability to source, manage and divest its investments and its ability to fulfil its investment objectives. Similar consequences could arise with respect to other comparable infectious diseases.

Other than as required by applicable laws, the Company gives no undertaking to update this announcement or any additional information, or to correct any inaccuracies in it which may become apparent and the distribution of this announcement. The information contained in this announcement is given at the date of its publication and is subject to updating, revision and amendment.
