EQT AB (publ) Q1 Announcement 2024

STOCKHOLM, April 18, 2024 /PRNewswire/ -- A promising start to 2024 - and to EQT's fourth decade
"EQT started the year with the successful completion of two fundraises, EQT X and EQT Future, with total commitments of more than EUR 25 billion. Investment activity continued at a good pace and, with transactions such as the IPO of Galderma, we expect a gradual increase in exit activity. Whilst the macroeconomic environment, financing conditions, and capital markets activity have improved, we continue to monitor geopolitical risks and macro developments, including interest rates, and maintain our focus on performance."

Highlights for the period Jan-Mar 2024 (Jan-Mar 2023)

Strategic

  • EQT X closed at EUR 22bn in total commitments, of which EUR 21.7bn are fee-generating assets under management, hitting the hard cap
  • EQT Future1 closed at EUR 3bn in total fund commitments, with total fee-generating commitments to the strategy, which includes co-investments, totaling EUR 3.6bn
  • EQT hosted a Capital Markets Day, re-confirming its revenue growth and adjusted EBITDA margin targets, providing further color on its fee-related EBITDA margin ambition, and refining its dividend growth target to be on a per share basis
  • Preparation continued for a transition infrastructure strategy, as well as further products targeting the Private Wealth segment
  • Preparations also continued for BPEA IX

Fundraising

  • Fee-generating assets under management (FAUM) ?increased? to EUR ??132?bn (EUR ?119?bn). Total AUM was EUR ???242?bn (EUR ??216?bn). Gross inflows amounted to EUR ??5?bn and were primarily driven by closed out commitments from EQT X and EQT Infrastructure VI
  • Fundraisings are generally taking longer in the current fundraising environment, and we expect the fundraising market to meaningfully improve only once realizations pick up materially across private markets
  • EQT Infrastructure VI had fee-generating commitments of EUR ?15.1?bn. Fundraising is expected to continue at least throughout 2024, and the fund is expected to reach its target fund size
  • EQT launched EQT Healthcare Growth, a dedicated healthcare buyout strategy
  • Fundraising continued for EQT Exeter US Multifamily Value II, EQT Exeter Europe Logistics Core-Plus II, EQT Active Core Infrastructure and EQT Exeter Asia Pacific Logistics II

  • The transaction with Wind Tre (EQT Infrastructure VI) was terminated

Exit activity2

  • Total gross fund exits during the quarter amounted to EUR ?1?bn (EUR ??2?bn). Exits include the sale of CMS Info Systems, India's largest cash management company; Shinhan Financial Group, the largest financial group in Korea; and RBL Bank, one of India's leading private sector banks (BPEA VII)
  • Other exits include Ottobock, the global leader in wearable human bionics (EQT VII); and Cardior Pharmaceuticals, a leader in RNA-targeted therapies for people with cardiovascular diseases (EQT Life Sciences)
  • Galderma, a leader in dermatology, priced its IPO on the SIX Swiss Exchange gaining >20% on the day of the IPO, with a total offering of USD 2.6bn. The offering comprised mainly of primary shares, to raise capital for Galderma, with only a minimal sale by EQT VIII

Investment performance

  • All ten Key funds are performing On or Above plan, meaning they are on track to deliver on or exceed the return targets communicated to our clients
  • In the first quarter, Key fund valuations increased by almost 3%, as underlying performance remained healthy and valuation references were supportive. The portfolio remains robust, albeit with certain pockets of underperformance
  • Strategies focused on earlier-stage investments, such as EQT Ventures and EQT Growth, saw a meaningful value uplift in certain portfolio companies

People and future-proofing

  • The number of full-time employees and on-site consultants (FTE+) amounted to ?1,859? (??1,792?), of which ?1,802? (???1,687?) were FTEs. Hiring was primarily to support new strategic initiatives such as Private Wealth and prioritized regions such as Asia and the US

Information on EQT AB's financial reporting

The EQT AB Group has a long-term business model founded on a promise to its fund investors to invest capital, drive value creation and create consistent attractive returns over a 5 to 10-year horizon. The Group's financial model is primarily affected by the size of its fee-generating assets under management, the performance of the EQT funds and its ability to recruit and retain top talent.

The Group operates in a market driven by long-term trends and thus believes quarterly financial statements are less relevant for investors. However, in order to provide the market with relevant and suitable information about the Group's development, EQT publishes quarterly announcements with key operating numbers that are relevant for the business performance (taking Nasdaq's guidance note for preparing interim management statements into consideration). In addition, a half-year report and a year-end report including financial statements and further information relevant for investors is published. Finally, EQT also publishes an annual report including sustainability reporting.
