          • Required for captives in a listed group
          • Listed funds with consolidated accounts (Investment
            Trust structures)
          • Reporting to Limited Partners
          • Transactions: Exits and acquisitions
          • New BVCA valuation guidelines

 What is meant by
 Fair Value in IFRS?
           The amount for which an asset could be exchanged between
           knowledgeable, willing parties in an arm’s length transaction

   IAS 39 is not prescriptive but recommends the following
   “estimation techniques”
    • When a quoted market price is available:“Current bid price”
    • When a quoted market price is not available

             • “Reference to the current market value of another instrument that is
               substantially the same”

             • “Discounted cash flow analysis”

             • “Option pricing models”

 The new BVCA guidelines
 are broadly consistent
  Recommends a number of different methodologies:
          •    Earnings multiple
          •    Price of recent investment
          •    Net assets
          •    Discounted cash flows (of the underlying business or
          •    Industry valuation benchmarks

 Increase in transparency – for
 better or for worse
• Investors have called for greater transparency

• Change to a fair value environment

• Will it give the desired results to investors?

• Will it impact on exit values?

 Methods of Calculating

 There are a number of methods in the market place, mostly based
 around an Internal Rate of Return Calculation.
 •     Net IRR
 •     Gross IRR
 •     Time Zero IRR
 •     Arithmetical Average IRR
 •     Weighted Average IRR

 Problems arising with no
 industry performance standard
 • Private Equity houses can mix and match return calculations
   methodologies to present their returns in the best light.
 • Disclosures can be obscured or absent, creating difficulty in
   knowing what is being compared.

 GIPS Standards

 • The Global Investment Performance Standards (“GIPS” or
   the “Standards”) provide a set of ethical guidelines for the
   measurement and presentation of investment performance.
 • The aim is to provide investors with information that is
   relevant, complete and not misleading – the underlying
   principle is one of full and fair disclosure.
 • They are not compulsory, but they have become widely
   accepted as best practice, certainly in the institutional arena,
   where compliance has come to be demanded of managers
   by the institutions themselves.

 The benefits of compliance

 • Boosts the credibility of investment performance reports
 • May meet an increasing demand amongst clients (as the
   institutional managers have found)
 • Improved controls and procedures over the investment
   measurement and reporting areas
