  • Earnings per share amounted to SEK -5.47 (1.25).
  • Net asset value amounted to MSEK 618 (SEK 55.42 per share) at June 30, 2020, compared to MSEK 710 (SEK 63.63 per share) at December 31, 2019.
  • Net cash amounted to MSEK 207 (SEK 18.60 per share) at June 30, 2020, compared to MSEK 230 (SEK 20.60 per share) at December 31, 2019.
  • The 2020 Annual General Meeting resolved to pay a dividend of 3.00 SEK per share for FY 2019.

Comments by the CEO

The net asset value per share decreased by 12.2% during the second quarter, with nearly half of the decrease stemming from a single portfolio company. The lower net asset value per share reflects the first valuation adjustments made by underlying funds after the Covid-19 outbreak.
At the end of the second quarter, NAXS had in excess of 30% of cash on its balance sheet, which leaves the Company well-positioned to take advantage of potential opportunities that might arise in what we expect to be a volatile environment.
