New €1bn buyout fund launched
26 Aug 16
Deutsche Beteiligungs (DBAG) reported a 9.1% dividend-adjusted NAV return for the first nine months of FY16, despite the sharp market drop following the Brexit vote, which reduced the valuation multiples applied to portfolio investments at the end of the third quarter. In July 2016, DBAG closed the fundraising for DBAG Fund VII with €1bn in commitments, which will significantly increase DBAG’s fee income from FY17. DBAG’s €200m commitment to this new fund provides scope for its investment portfolio to grow significantly over the medium term. These factors support the change in DBAG’s dividend policy to the payment of a stable or rising single annual dividend from FY16.
On track to meet FY16 guidance
24 May 16
Deutsche Beteiligungs (DBAG) reported a strong performance in the first half of FY16 with an 11.1% increase in NAV supporting management’s guidance for a c 14% return on NAV for the full year. While macroeconomic conditions are reported to have become more demanding, portfolio companies have diverse exposures to market and economic cycles and the majority continue to budget for higher revenues and earnings in 2016. DBAG invested €21m during the half year including €19m in two new companies and three divestments were agreed. Although it made a negative value contribution, the sale of Clyde Bergemann Power Group has brought DBAG Fund IV to a successful close.
Disposal adds to strong Q116 performance
16 Feb 16
Deutsche Beteiligungs (DBAG) reported a strong performance in the first quarter of FY16 with a 10.6% increase in NAV underpinned by robust earnings and budgets across the carried portfolio. The combined c €10m contribution from the Spheros divestment and a buyout fund realisation roughly balanced the effect of declining market valuations. Investment activity continued at an elevated pace with €21m committed to two new investments. DBAG management has confirmed its FY16 guidance suggesting at least €40m net income, while we note that realised capital gains may provide scope for an increase in the FY16 surplus dividend.
Continuing high level of investment activity
18 Jan 16
Deutsche Beteiligungs (DBAG) reported results ahead of guidance for FY15 with NAV per share increasing 10%, driven by strong valuation gains for the carried portfolio. New investment reached the highest level in 10 years and the pace of investment activity has continued into the current financial year. FY16 is expected to see a significant increase in net income and management projects NAV to grow at more than 10% pa over the next three years. Based on the proposed FY15 total dividend, the shares yield 3.7% and the disposal of Spheros Group provides scope for an increased total dividend in FY16.
New investments at highest level in 10 years
28 Sep 15
Deutsche Beteiligungs (DBAG) achieved its FY15 financial targets during Q315, although recent market volatility and lower market valuation levels have led to full-year guidance being broadened. The high rate of new investment continued in the quarter, adding to medium-term value creation potential. Total new investment of €72m in FY15 has left financial resources at c €55m, which appears an appropriate level to maintain DBAG’s target €50m pa investment rate over the next 12 months.
Positive momentum continues in Q215
07 Jul 15
Deutsche Beteiligungs (DBAG) saw strong valuation gains in Q215, helped by a positive market performance. Even after absorbing a €20m profit-sharing provision triggered by the strong performance of DBAG Fund V, NAV increased by 7.9% in H115, ahead of the 12.3% pa 10-year NAV growth rate. New investments totalling €51m in the half year add potential for value creation in the medium term and DBAG retains sufficient funds to maintain its target €50m pa investment rate over the next 12 months.
Making Mobiles Better
17 Jan 17
Mobile phones are increasingly the key connection for the modern world. This means that the performance of mobile phones, and their networks, is going to become more critical for all the apps and businesses that rely on them. New technologies such as VR, AR, and AV will need better, more reliable connections to really move into the mainstream. In this thematic piece we attempt to identify some of the most important issues facing mobile phone networks and their users, and start to identify solutions and enablers that will solve these problems and create value by doing so.

N+1 Singer - Northern lights - Shining prospects for 2017
16 Jan 17
As the birthplace of Stephenson, Armstrong and Swan, the North East of England has a proud history of industrial and technological innovation. Despite local economic challenges, the region’s industrial heritage lives on through continuing success in high end engineering and technology. The recent takeovers of private equity backed SMD (subsea robotics) and Nomad Digital (wi-fi on the railways) are testament to this. The North East has also emerged as a leader in genetics and genomics with an enviable life sciences and healthcare infrastructure. Against this backdrop, we expect the region to continue to throw up attractive IPO candidates to build on the six new listings in the past three years. We expect 2017 to be far kinder to the existing portfolio of North East plcs than 2016 (a year to forget) with recent management changes one important theme for the new year. Our top picks are Hargreaves Services, Quantum Pharma and Zytronic (all N+1 Singer Corporate clients) and we are Buyers of Northgate and Grainger.
