VinaCapital Vietnam Opportunity Fund Limited


(the "Company" or "VOF")


LEI Number: 2138007UD8FBBVAX9469


Estimated Weekly Net Asset Value ("NAV") - 25 January 2019


The Company announces that, as at the close of business on 25 January 2019, its unaudited, estimated NAV was USD 931 million or USD 5.01 per share. The Sterling equivalent as at that same date was GBP 709 million or GBP 3.82 per share.


On a per share basis, this figure represents a week on week increase of 0.81% in USD terms.


Please note that the Company will not release an estimated NAV for the week ending 1 February 2019 because of the upcoming Lunar New Year public holiday. Vietnam's stock exchanges will be closed between Monday, 4 February 2019 to Friday, 8 February 2019, with trading resuming on Monday, 11 February 2019. The next weekly estimated NAV announcement will be published on Monday, 11 February 2019.


Disclaimers: The estimated weekly NAV stated in this announcement has been prepared by the Administrator and reviewed by the Investment Manager, and is based on estimated valuations and, accordingly, the Company accepts no responsibility for the accuracy of the estimated weekly NAV. The actual month end NAV in any month may vary from the estimated weekly NAVs provided in the relevant month. Accordingly, no reliance should be placed on the estimated weekly NAV and it has been provided for indicative purposes only. The Company's unaudited NAV as at the end of each month is published on or around the 10th of each month.


The estimated weekly NAV is prepared based on the following valuation guidelines:


·      Listed equities are marked-to-market, based on the closing price of the last trading day of the prior week, provided by the Vietnam stock exchanges (the Ho Chi Minh Stock Exchange and the Hanoi Stock Exchange).


·      Unlisted securities include over-the-counter (OTC) traded securities and unlisted securities publicly traded on the Unlisted Public Companies Market (UPCOM) of the Hanoi Stock Exchange. These holdings are marked-to-market on the same basis as listed equities. Where this valuation approach is not available, unlisted securities valuations are based on the average of up to three independent broker quotes for the last trading day of the prior month, or where these are unavailable, the last available price.


·      Non-publicly traded investments, including private equity and direct real estate investments are valued based on the last available valuation as approved by the Audit Committee, which may be adjusted for any impairment, loss or disposal.


·      The valuation of cash positions is based on cash in the Company's bank accounts at the close of the prior week and is adjusted for receivables and accruals.


·      The Vietnam Dong (VND) foreign exchange rate is the daily reference rate provided by Vietcombank as of the date of the weekly NAV. The British Sterling (GBP) and US Dollar (USD) exchange rates are based on the Reuters reference rate of the same day.
