We reviewed NBPE’s business model in our initiation, Co-investments generating superior performance. We noted the high-secular-growth and downside-resilience of portfolio companies, the value added by GPs, the positive co-investing cashflow and return profile, along with the value added by the manager, NB. The 26 September results confirmed all these trends. The key theme running through the October CMD was the superior EBITDA growth of its portfolio companies. In 2006, this was 63% of expected value creation, but it has risen to 93% in recent deals. Critically, target IRRs (20%+ net) are unchanged despite higher interest rates.
