Trading Update for the six months ended 30 June 2017

 

Oakley Capital Investments Limited1 (AIM:OCI, the "Company") the AIM-listed company established to provide investors with access to the investment strategy of Oakley Capital Private Equity2, today announces a trading update for the six months ended 30 June 2017.

 

The Company's net asset value is estimated to be in the range £2.29 - £2.31 per share, compared to £2.31 per share reported at 31 December 2016.

 

A strong underlying performance from the Oakley Funds portfolio companies was mainly offset by dilution from the treasury share sale announced in January. The Company now holds no treasury shares. Going forward the Board does not intend to issue equity or sell stock from treasury at a discount to NAV.

 

Since the start of the year Oakley Fund III has invested €174.1 million, acquiring Casa.it & atHome.lu, Plesk and TechInsights. The Company's interest in Fund III at 30 June 2017 is £61.6 million. Post period end, Oakley Fund III has also completed a €85.9 million investment in the leading German tutoring business, Schülerhilfe.

 

OCI has received proceeds of £12.5m during the period, relating to the realisation of Host Europe Group in the sale to GoDaddy Inc.
