Edge Performance VCT plc (the "Company")
Investee Company Corporate Action
The Company announces that one of its investee companies, Coolabi Group Limited ("Coolabi"), has finalised with its management team a revised management incentive scheme, which will become effective only upon the sale of Coolabi. While disappointed by the negative impact this has on the valuation of the Company's holding in Coolabi, the Company's board of directors notes that the implementation of a revised management scheme was a condition of further investment from an existing investor in Coolabi.
As a result of this agreement, the Company's net asset value has decreased from £37,569k (the revised NAV following the sale of its holding in deltaDNA Limited, as per RNS Number 2774N of 23 September 2019) to £34,056k, a reduction of 9.4%, where both NAVs are stated prior to any other revaluation of assets as at 31 August 2019 for the Company's half-yearly report.
Coolabi was held in both the H and I share classes of the Company. The effect of the revised Coolabi management incentive scheme is to decrease the H share class NAV from £9,299k to £9,126k, a reduction of 1.9%, and the I share class NAV from £28,269k to £24,930k, a reduction of 11.8%. In the case of the H share class, the NAV reduction is based upon the revised NAV following the sale of its holding in deltaDNA Limited, as per RNS Number 2774N of 23 September 2019, and in both cases these NAVs are prior to any other revaluation of assets as at 31 August 2019 for the Company's half-yearly report.
