Kinnevik: Interim report 1 January – 31 March 2021
“Kinnevik started 2021 from a position of strength across our portfolio, and we continued to build on that platform during the first quarter. Our planned distribution of our shares in Zalando will enable Kinnevik to take a step-change in our strategic transformation, further increasing our focus on our younger growth portfolio.”
Georgi Ganev, CEO of Kinnevik
Key Strategic Highlights
- We proposed distributing Zalando to Kinnevik’s shareholders
- We participated with USD 30m in Cityblock's funding round
- Material uplift in the valuation of Cedar in connection with the company's USD 200m fundraise
- Material uplift in the valuation of VillageMD as a result of strong operational performance and expanding multiples
- We invested USD 70m into Vivino, the leading online wine marketplace and wine app
- Our NAV was negatively impacted by lower valuations in emerging markets and soft share price performance in Zalando
- Kinnevik ranked as #1 in Sweden and #62 globally in Equileap’s Global Report on Gender Equality, and we published our TCFD Report including a scenario analysis on climate change
Investment Management Activities
- We invested SEK 1,006m in the quarter, including:
- SEK 586m into Vivino
- SEK 255m into Cityblock
- SEK 66m into TravelPerk
- Further, we released SEK 196m from the divestment of shares in Alliance Data that was received as part of the sale of Bread in Q4 2020, generating a realized IRR in excess of 30 percent
- NAV of SEK 117.8bn (SEK 424 per share), up SEK 6.1bn or 5% in the quarter
- Net cash position of SEK 3.9bn, corresponding to 3.4% of portfolio value by quarter-end
Events After the Quarter
- In April, Kinnevik announced its participation with NOK 200m in a funding round by Kolonial.no / Oda, emerging as the largest shareholder and introducing new partners Softbank and Prosus
Annual General Meeting
