Comments by the CEO

After the second quarter’s dip, NAXS’s net asset value per share recovered during the third quarter, increasing by 9.3% during the period. The increase in net asset value reflects the general valuation uplift of fund investments, based on improved trading conditions for portfolio companies and positive developments of comparative multiples.
During the third quarter, NAXS allocated some of the cash on its balance sheet, making a new commitment to Nordic Capital Fund X, the latest fund launched by Nordic Capital. The fund will focus on majority investments in companies in the Healthcare, Technology & Payments and Financial Services sectors.
