   Portfolio Commentary 
   During January, NBPE completed one new direct equity investment in 
Agiliti, a provider of healthcare technology management and services. 
NBPE also funded an additional investment in GFL Environmental, an 
environmental services company. In terms of distributions, NBPE received 
$7.8 million from direct equity investments, consisting primarily of 
proceeds received as a result of the exit of Berlin Packaging. Income 
investments distributed $4.4 million, which consisted of $3.6 million of 
principal repayment and interest received from the exit of Epic 
Insurance, and $0.8 million in other principal and interest receipts. 
   Prior to the accrual of the declared dividend, the increase in NAV per 
Share was driven by changes in public positions, which increased by 
$10.1 million during the month. On 8 January 2019, NBPE declared the 
first 2019 semi-annual dividend of $0.28 per Share, which yields 
approximately 3.2% based on NAV and 3.9% based on the closing share 
price of GBP10.90 as of 31 January 2019. In addition, during January 
2019, the Company began repurchasing shares under the new share buyback 
agreement with Jefferies International Limited. During the month, NBPE 
repurchased 137,296 shares at a weighted average discount to NAV of 21%. 
The shares bought back will be canceled.
