News Release


Guernsey, 28 July 2021


NAV increases by 4.8% in June


· Princess Private Equity Holding Limited's (Princess or the Company) net asset value increased by 4.8%   to EUR 15.24 per share

· Portfolio developments (+4.8%) and currency movements (+0.1%) were positive

· Princess invested EUR 6.4 million and received distributions of EUR 34.2 million


In June, Princess' NAV increased by 4.8%, bring performance for the first half-year to +16.7%. The positive performance was driven by a number of portfolio companies. Amongst the largest value drivers was Foncia, a property management and real estate services provider in France. The company continues to strengthen its position in the French market via M&A, with close to 50 acquisitions closed in FY2021. Foncia has also hired new country heads to lead the company's expansion in the German and Belgian markets. SPi Global, a content and data solutions provider, was positively revalued. Performance has been strong across all divisions: the edtech solutions business unit has achieved strong growth on the back of robust e-learning tailwinds continuing in 2021; the data solutions business has seen robust sales momentum with several new account wins; and research content services continues to outperform budget. SPi has been rebranded to 'Straive', which reflects the company's transformation from a content services provider to a content, data, and edtech solutions player.


Princess received distributions of EUR 34.2 million, including proceeds of EUR 26.8 million following the exit of Cerba HealthCare, a leading player in medical diagnostics. Over its four-year period of ownership, Partners Group worked alongside Cerba's management team to enhance its operations in new markets and expand its international footprint . Further, Princess received distributions of EUR 6.1 million which stemmed from SRS Distribution, a US distributor of roofing products, supported by strong same-store-sales growth. SRS remains highly acquisitive and recently expanded its regional presence in Chicago with acquisitions of three additional distributors, bringing the number of locations to 460 across 44 states.


Princess invested EUR 6.4 million in Axia Women's Health, a leading women's healthcare provider in the US. Axia provides a highly integrated platform of non-clinical business and administrative support services to its network of physician practices across the US. Axia has partnered with more than 80 care centers comprising 150 locations, which offer a wide range of care, including obstetrics, gynecology, laboratory, mammography, urogynecology, fertility, and other sub-specialties. Partners Group will work closely with Axia's management team on a range of value creation initiatives such as expanding in-demand ancillary services; improving patient experience, outcomes, and engagement; and continued accretive M&A in both its existing geographical footprint and new regions.
