      (but due to the accretive nature of share buybacks NAV per Share 
      increased by approximately $0.11 per Share), driven by: 
          -- $19.1 million of cash outflow related to share buybacks, which 
             resulted in NAV per Share accretion of approximately $0.11 per 
          -- $6.9 million of unrealised gains attributable to the receipt of 
             new valuation information, or $0.14 per share 
          -- $2.9 million of other unrealised gains, or $0.06 per share, 
             attributable to gains from public securities, realisation 
             adjustments and mark-to-market adjustments 
          -- $4.7 million decrease in NAV primarily attributable to ZDP 
             interest, management fee, carried interest accrual and other fee 
          -- $1.1 million of accrued cash and PIK interest from the income 
             portfolio, or $0.02 per share 
          -- $0.6 million, or $0.01 per share, of unrealised negative foreign 
             exchange adjustments on non-USD investments

   Portfolio Commentary 
   During April, NBPE received $45.5 million of proceeds, of which $30.6 
million was received from the realisation of the PIK preferred equity 
and common equity of Standard Aero as a result of its sale to a 
financial buyer. In addition, NBPE received $11.4 million from further 
sales of shares in the public market of Aruhi (TYO: 7198) and Assurant 
(NYSE: AIZ). Following these sales, NBPE has fully exited Assurant and 
has only a small remaining position in Aruhi. In addition to the sale of 
the PIK preferred equity in Standard Aero, other income investments 
distributed $1.1 million to NBPE, consisting of interest and principal 
receipts. The only significant investment cash flow during the month was 
$3.8 million to the NB Credit Opportunities Program. 
   On 24 and 25 April, NBPE repurchased a total 1,358,000 million shares, 
at a weighted average discount to NAV of 20% and a total cost of $19.1 
million. This resulted in NAV per Share accretion of approximately $0.11 
per Share during April. The shares bought back will be canceled.
