                                                                                  2020

                        (net asset value basis) 
                      per share since inception 
 

The NAV per share has increased by 13.23 pence in the quarter (an increase of 19.7% upon the opening NAV per share). This strong performance is principally due to a further rise in unrealised portfolio valuations as well as gains on realisations. The admission to AIM of two portfolio companies (further details below) made a significant contribution.

Since 31 March 2020, the first quarter to reflect the initial outbreak of the COVID 19 pandemic, NAV return per share has increased by 55.3%, a very pleasing performance, reflecting a series of profitable realisations and strong, resilient performance by the majority of portfolio companies in response to the pandemic, particularly by those with direct-to-consumer models.

INVESTMENT ACTIVITY DURING THE PERIOD

Virgin Wines admission to AIM

On 2 March 2021, Virgin Wines UK plc ("Virgin Wines"), an existing portfolio company, was admitted to trading on the Alternative Investment Market ("AIM") of the London Stock Exchange, alongside a placing of new and existing shares, at a Placing Price of GBP1.97 per share.

As part of this transaction, the Company received repayment of its remaining loan stock, generating net proceeds of GBP2.31 million (net of IPO transaction costs of GBP0.07 million).

At the date of the unaudited NAV per share above, being 31 March 2021, and based upon a bid price of GBP2.23 per share, the value of the Company's equity investment in Virgin Wines was valued at GBP13.04 million, an increase in value of this equity investment over the quarter of GBP7.45 million.

Parsley Box admission to AIM

On 31 March 2021, Parsley Box Group plc ("Parsley Box"), an existing portfolio company, was admitted to trading on the Alternative Investment Market ("AIM") of the London Stock Exchange, alongside a placing of new and existing shares. The Placing Price of these shares was GBP2.00 per share, valuing Parsley Box at a market capitalisation of GBP83.8 million.

Following a further investment into Parsley Box on 7 January 2021 of GBP0.33 million (as noted below), the Company now holds 1,667,896 shares in Parsley Box after also acquiring 7,120 new ordinary shares at the Placing Price of GBP2.00 and a top-slicing sale of 830,388 shares to new investors. The sale realised net proceeds of GBP1.59 million for the Company (net of transaction costs), and generated a 4.0x return on the shares sold, as well as securing an overall return of 1.3x on the Company's entire investment to date.

At the date of the unaudited NAV per share above, being 31 March 2021, and based upon a closing bid price of GBP1.80 per share, the value of the Company's investment in Parsley Box was valued at GBP3.00 million. With the net sale proceeds of GBP1.59 million above, this represents a total uplift of GBP1.77 million over the valuation at 31 December 2020 of this investment.

Partial realisation during the period

On 31 March 2021, the Company partially realised its investment in MPB Group Limited as part of a GBP49.8 million primary and secondary funding round.
