riverman77: Yes Rik has the the correct figures - by my calculation there has been a hit of around £20m from the further fall in share prices since March - so less than 2% impact on NAV per share, although would have been easier if they'd provided this detail in the headlines rather than having to dig into the accounts.

llef: posted this on the other board, but I'm so fed up, I'm going to post it here too are unlisted valuations mark to market, or mark to fantasy? from the report "At 31 March 2022, we held interests in three listed companies - Trustpilot, UiPath, and Cazoo. Their valuations are based on their quoted share price on 31 March 2022. Their value using the closing quoted share price on 8 June 2022 was £43.9 million." so what was the value at period end then? why don't they tell us explicitly? well, deep breath trustpilot 85m Uipath 100m Cazoo 25m so thats 210m down to..... 44m since report end Its pretty clear why they don't make it explicit isn't it!

mike the mechanic: Yes, I noticed that. Interestingly the share price was 800p on both 31st March 2021 and 2022 which reflects a very different market attitude to GROW's investment prospects (from premium to discount). I guess we should also assume that the NAV today is less than on 31st March 2022 so a lower discount but still more than 10%

qvg: Riverman, Thanks for that. The RNS on 9/3 assured us that "The increase in fair value supports the previously announced year-end guidance of fair value growth in the region of 35%." Trustpilot and Cazoo share price seems to be flat since then, Uipath is down around 20% - so most of the fall that you mention should be already recognised in their 35% uplift?

km18: ...from last year... Company overview: Draper Esprit is a venture capital investment firm, focused in disruptive, high growth technology companies. The company aims to be recognised as the go-to VC for “visionaries inventing our world”. As at the end of March they were managing £1.3bn of assets and surpassed the target of £120m per annum threshold they set earlier in 2020 for investments. We would spare the usual growth analysis, due to the nature of the business, and would instead mention that the investments the company has made over the years have generated a healthy 51% growth in gross portfolio value. The fundamentals look solid, with growth in revenue skyrocketing last year, making the stock a clear growth story and distorting the CAGR, which currently stands at 159%. Net profit CAGR is even more astonishing at 337%. In addition, ROCE has been growing at 17.6% and the year-end figure reached 26.4%. Return on equity is also very strong for the industry at 31.6%, so is the return on capital of 26.4%.  Gearing is negative, which is to be expected, given the nature of the business and valuation is not too stretched, with P/E for 2021 at 4.52, which is in the top quartile of the industry. Latest communique from the company is in the form of an “Investment update”. Draper Esprit has managed to invest £130m in a number of growth opportunities from the start of the year. They are also mentioning their lucrative investment in Cazoo, the listing of which has generated more than $1bn before expenses.... ...from WealthOracleAM https://wealthoracle.co.uk/detailed-result-full/GROW/194

w13ken: A positive, fairly in-depth analysis of GROW published by Moneyweek today. Also rated as a Share tip. Note GROW's 35 Seed funds are invested in an amazing 530 companies. How many big winners are in there? GROW gets early sight of them and can help lead/fund later rounds. "...Molten’s share price can be volatile and its growth depends on finding more high-growth venture investments which it can help develop and exit at a good profit. Its record so far has been excellent. Big-name investments include Revolut, Cazoo, Aircall (the cloud-based call centre company) and Freetrade. Molten’s three-channel deal-finding technique, its record and its encouraging interim results suggest there is more growth to come. Given earnings per share (EPS) of 206p, the 2020-2021 p/e is 4.5; the forward p/e depends on the value of 2021-2022 exits but, encouragingly, the first half saw a strong eps of 148p. The company could be a useful addition to portfolios for those with a reasonable risk appetite." hTTps://moneyweek.com/investments/stocks-and-shares/share-tips/604267/molten-ventures-invest-in-digital-technology-with

cordwainer: I also added a few more at around 893p. But since becoming a FT250 constituent maybe GROW is now a bit less immune to the general outlook this winter for the UK economy and passive index investor sentiment. Also trying to keep a bit of cash ready. Hard nav currently at approx 820p with historic annualised portfolio growth potentially lifting that to approx. 885p, but portfolio companies not entirely immune to general supply issues and a more fearful market could take the share price to a discount. Quite hopeful for a bounce back to £10+ but at this point I feel my target for 2021 of £12 is looking optimistic... cordwainer - 21 Jan 2021 - 09:52:50 - 288 of 472 Draper Esprit - VC Firm - GROW Based on analyst estimates, my conservative target price here for 2021 is £12. Among my largest portfolio holdings.

brexitplus: Draper Esprit plc ("Draper Esprit", "the Group" or the "Company") Investment update Draper Esprit (LSE: GROW, Euronext Dublin: GRW), a leading venture capital firm investing in and developing high growth digital technology businesses, today provides an update on recent developments in its portfolio. Key highlights are as follows: · Continued capital deployment in the increasing number of growth opportunities in the European venture capital market, investing a total of £130 million during the year to date including 8 new, and 6 follow-on, investments. · Additional investments of £25m and £15m in existing portfolio companies Form3 and CoachHub, respectively. · Existing portfolio company Cazoo lists on the New York Stock Exchange, receiving proceeds of over $1bn before expenses. FORM3 Draper Esprit participated with a further £25m in a $160m Series C round in platform payment technology provider Form3. The round was led by new investor Goldman Sachs and also included existing investors Lloyds Banking Group, Nationwide Building Society, Barclays, Mastercard and 83North. Founded In 2016, Form3 is the leading platform payment technology provider and offers an alternative to the traditional payment infrastructure model, providing an always-on, cloud-native, Payments-as-a-Service platform. Form3 is trusted by some of the UK and Europe's biggest Tier 1 banks and fastest-growing Fintechs to handle their critical payments architecture. Based on the valuation implied by the fundraising, the Company's gross fair value holding (before carry deductions) is approximately £58 million. Excluding the £25 million of newly invested capital, this is an uplift of approximately £23 million to the March 2021 gross fair value of £10 million. COACHHUB In September, Draper Esprit participated with a further £15 million investment in an $80 million Series B extension round in CoachHub, supported by existing investors RTP Global, HV Capital, Signals Venture Capital, Partech and Speedinvest. CoachHub is the leading global talent development platform and enables organisations to create a personalised, measurable and scalable coaching program for the entire workforce, regardless of department and seniority level. CoachHub uses artificial intelligence to match individuals with more than 2,500 certified business and well-being coaches in 70 countries across six continents, with coaching sessions available in more than 60 languages. CAZOO In August, Draper Esprit portfolio company Cazoo announced its business combination with AJAX I and its listing on the New York Stock Exchange. Cazoo (NYSE: CZOO) received $1bn in proceeds before expenses from the transaction, which will be used to further build out its brand and infrastructure. Cazoo is an online car retailer which, since being founded in 2018, has delivered over 35,000 cars to customers across the UK and mainland Europe. Following its recent acquisitions, Cazoo is also now Europe's leading car subscription player with thousands of subscribers across the UK, Germany and France. Based on the share price of $9/share the Company's gross fair value holding (before carry deductions) is approximately £37 million, which is an uplift of approximately £11 million to the March 2021 gross fair value of £26 million. Martin Davis, Chief Executive Officer of Draper Esprit, commented: "Our recent activity has demonstrated the strength of our portfolio and our investment team, and we have been able to participate in follow-on rounds in some of the more established businesses in our portfolio, such as CoachHub and Form3. Cazoo's IPO is further evidence of this, as in only three years, it has established itself as one of the most significant players in the European used car market. As we recover from the pandemic, the technology sector continues to go from strength to strength and we are well positioned to continue to support the most promising companies."
