Comments by the CEO
NAXS experience a flat NAV development during the first quarter with the NAV/share increasing by 0.1%. Over 12 months, the NAV/share has increased by 0,1%, including the FY 2022 dividend paid in April 2023.

Rising stock indices and the prospect of interest rate cuts have provided a supportive macroeconomic background during the first quarter, although this has yet to translate into a material increase in private equity activity.

During the quarter, NAXS’s underlying funds signed 1 new acquisition and 1 exit, while the co-investment in Reledo continued to grow through add-on acquisitions.

After the end of the quarter, the Company’s 2024 AGM approved on April 4 the payment of the dividend of SEK 4.25/share for FY 2023.
