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.
