Kinnevik:Interim Report 1 January - 30 June 2019
”It was an eventful second quarter, during which we focused our efforts on continuing the shift in our portfolio towards growth companies. These efforts included supporting high-performers in our private portfolio, evaluating our Millicom stake and supporting the IPO of Global Fashion Group.”
Georgi Ganev, CEO of Kinnevik
KEY PORTFOLIO DEVELOPMENTS
- Global Fashion Group began trading on the Frankfurt Stock Exchange on 2 July. The company raised a total of c. EUR 200m, of which EUR 60m from Kinnevik, to fuel continued growth
- Livongo announced its intention to go public at a proposed price range corresponding to a fully diluted pre-money valuation of USD 2.1-2.4bn. Kinnevik has agreed to purchase additional shares at the IPO price from one of Livongo’s investors, and we have also indicated our interest in purchasing newly issued shares in the IPO
INVESTMENT MANAGEMENT ACTIVITIES
- Total investments of SEK 1,367m during the quarter, whereof SEK 632m in GFG, SEK 336m in Kolonial, SEK 156m in Monese, SEK 85m in Pleo and SEK 157m in other existing assets
- During the quarter Kinnevik announced an intention to divest and distribute the shareholding in Millicom. While the two-step divestment could not be concluded at terms we found agreeable, Kinnevik remains firmly committed to continuing to strengthen our financial position and evolve the portfolio towards a higher proportion of growth companies. Consequently, we continue to evaluate potential next steps in relation to our shareholding in Millicom
- Net asset value of SEK 89.0bn (SEK 323 per share), up SEK 4.7bn or 6% during the quarter, primarily driven by positive share price development in Zalando and Tele2, furthered by upwards revisions of the fair values of both Livongo and Babylon, partially offset by the decline in value of Global Fashion Group
- Net debt position increased by SEK 1.7bn to SEK 5.7bn, resulting in leverage of 6.0% of Portfolio Value
