   NB Private Equity Partners Publishes 31 August 2020 NAV Update and 2020 
Interim Financial Report 
   14 September 2020 
   NB Private Equity Partners Limited ("NBPE" or the "Company"), a 
closed-end private equity investment company, today releases its 31 
August 2020 monthly NAV update and the 2020 Interim Financial Report. 
Key highlights and commentary are below and the complete report can be 
found on the Company's website at 
   Key Highlights 
   NBPE's year to date NAV performance as of 31st August reflects a strong 
recovery in valuations from the Q1 2020 NAV per share of $16.84. This 
has been driven by a recovery in public market comparable companies used 
in valuations, but importantly, NBPE's portfolio has generally proven to 
be resilient to the economic shock of the Coronavirus crisis to date and 
LTM Revenue and EBITDA of the direct equity portfolio grew by 1.8% and 
2.4%, respectively, as of 30 June 2020 relative to the prior year(1) . 
The Manager believes that this reflects the overall quality of the 
companies in the portfolio, the quick actions of underlying General 
Partners at the beginning of the crisis and the weighting of the 
portfolio to companies that were expected to be relatively resilient to 
a downturn. 
   -- After incorporating Q2 private company financial information and the 
      payment of the August dividend of $0.29 per Share, 31 August 2020 NAV per 
      Share is $18.40 
          -- $53.5 million of total private valuation increases from Q1 2020 
             attributable to new Q2 private valuation information, or $1.14 per 
             share; additional gains of $20.2 million in the second quarter as 
             a result of changes in FX and public share prices vs Q1 2020 
          -- Additional portfolio gains of $26.5 million or $0.57 per Share 
             during the month of July and August attributable to increases in 
             public valuations, changes in FX rates and interest accruals 
          -- Portfolio gains offset by $10.1 million of management and other 
             fee accruals, ZDP accrual (net of FX hedge) and credit facility 
             expenses during July and August 
          -- Relative to Q1 2020 private valuations, Q2 2020 private valuation 
             net increase was experienced broadly across the portfolio: direct 
             equity investments (+$47.2 million increase) income investment 
             (+$4.8 million increase) and legacy fund investments (+$1.7 
             million increase) 
   -- As of 31 August 2020 NAV per Share total return year to date is (0.7%) 
          -- One year LTM NAV per Share total return is 1.8% 
   -- Portfolio continues to generate cash from sales and partial realisations; 
      $110.0 million of total realisations and $91.5 million of realisations 
      from the direct equity portfolio through 31 August 2020 year to date 
          -- 2.8x gross realised multiple (inclusive of prior realisations) 
             from the exits of Engineering, LGC, Evoqua and Galco; $70.3 
             million of proceeds from the sale of four equity investments in 
          -- $21.2 million received from dividends, the partial sales of public 
             stock and other realisations 
   -- Investment level is 128% as of 31 August 2020 
          -- 31 August 2020 adjusted commitments are $109.8 million (vs $142.0 
             million at 31 March 2020) and the adjusted commitment coverage is 
             now 184% 
          -- Balance sheet remains strong with significant access to liquidity 
             through the credit facility should it be needed

   (1) Analysis based on 77 private companies, representing 84% of direct 
equity investment fair value and excludes public companies, equity 
invested alongside healthcare credits, financial services companies 
valued on a multiple of book value or other income metrics, E&P 
companies valued on acreage or reserves and escrow value (ie companies 
valued on metrics other than EBITDA). Revenue and EBITDA of companies 
denominated in foreign currency are converted to US Dollars at the 
average US Dollar exchange rate for the 12 month period from 30/6/20 
through 30/6/19; leverage and enterprise value is converted to US 
Dollars at the year end exchange rate. Companies valued on a revenue 
multiple are excluded from EV/EBITDA metrics. Portfolio company 
operating and valuation metrics are based on the most recently available 
(unaudited) financial information for each company. Where necessary, 
estimates were used, which include pro forma adjusted EBITDA and revenue, 
annualised quarterly operating metrics and LTM periods as of 31/3/20 and 
30/6/20. EV/EBITDA and Net Debt/EBITDA weighted by private equity fair 
value as of 30 June 2020; LTM Revenue and LTM EBITDA growth statistics 
based on NBPE's ownership of these metrics on an underlying basis. 
   (2) Please refer to the valuation methodology section of the monthly and 
interim financial report for a description of the Manager's valuation 
methodology. 84% of underlying valuation data is as of 30 June 2020. 
Given the current market / economic environment the Manager notes that 
while this valuation data may be stale, it remains the best estimate we 
are currently able to provide but may not accurately reflect the fair 
value at 31 August 2020.
