12 April 2019

STANDARD LIFE PRIVATE EQUITY TRUST PLC ("SLPET" OR "THE COMPANY") ANNOUNCES ITS ESTIMATED NET ASSET VALUE ("NAV") AT 31 MARCH 2019

-- ESTIMATED NAV AT 31 MARCH 2019 WAS 410.7 PENCE PER SHARE (ESTIMATED NAV AT 28 FEBRUARY 2019 WAS 408.4 PENCE PER SHARE)

-- SLPET PAID GBP16.7 MILLION OF DRAW DOWNS AND RECEIVED GBP10.1 MILLION OF DISTRIBUTIONS DURING THE MONTH OF MARCH

   --      OUTSTANDING COMMITMENTS OF GBP382.7 MILLION AT 31 MARCH 2019 

SLPET's valuation policy for private equity funds and co-investments is based on the latest valuations reported by the managers of the funds and co-investments in which the Company has interests. In the case of SLPET's valuation at 31 March 2019, 99.0% by value of the portfolio valuations were dated 31 December 2018.

Estimated NAV

At 31 March 2019, SLPET's estimated NAV was 410.7 pence per share (estimated net assets GBP631.5 million), representing a 0.6% per share increase from the estimated NAV at 28 February 2019 of 408.4 pence per share (estimated net assets GBP627.9 million). The 2.3 pence increase in NAV per share reflected unrealised foreign exchange gains arising primarily from a 0.7% appreciation in the euro versus sterling during March.

Draw downs and distributions

SLPET paid GBP16.7 million of drawdowns and received GBP10.1 million of distributions during the month of March. The distributions received generated realised gains and income of GBP5.0 million.

Commitments

The Company had GBP382.7 million of outstanding commitments at 31 March 2019. After undertaking a detailed review, the Manager continues to believe that around GBP60.0 million of the Company's existing outstanding commitments are unlikely to be drawn.

Balance sheet and credit facility

The Company had resources available for investment of GBP84.7 million at 31 March 2019. In addition, the Company has an undrawn GBP80 million syndicated revolving credit facility, provided by Citibank and Societe Generale that expires in December 2020.

Future announcements

The Company is expecting to announce its estimated NAV at 30 April 2019 on 15 May 2019.

Valuation Methodology

Unquoted investments are stated at the directors' estimate of fair value and follow the recommendations of EVCA and BVCA. The estimate of fair value is normally the latest valuation placed on a fund by its manager at the balance sheet date. The valuation policies used by the manager in undertaking that valuation will generally be in line with the joint publication from EVCA and BVCA, 'International Private Equity and Venture Capital Valuation guidelines'. Where formal valuations are not completed at the balance sheet date the last available valuation from the fund or co-investment lead manager is adjusted for any subsequent cashflows occurring between the valuation date and the balance sheet date. The Company's Manager may further adjust such valuations to reflect any changes in circumstances from the last manager's formal valuation date to arrive at the estimate of fair value. Quoted investments are valued based on quoted prices as of the last day of the relevant period.

The Company intends to release regular estimated NAV updates around ten business days after each month end, while continuing to issue quarterly trading statements. A breakdown of SLPET's portfolio can be obtained in the latest factsheet, which is published on SLPET's website at
