Realisation of investment
Mobeus Income & Growth 4 VCT plc
Realisation of investment in ASL Technology Holdings Limited
The Company is pleased to announce the sale of its investment in ASL Technology Holdings Limited ("ASL") to a trade purchaser on a debt free and cash free basis. The Company received £3.40 million in cash from the sale, and generated a realised gain over cost over the life of the investment of £2.29 million, being the equivalent of 3.38 pence per share.
In isolation, the impact of this sale on the Company's latest announced NAV per share of 83.59 pence at 31 March 2019 (adjusted for the subsequent payment of a dividend of 4 pence per share on 28 May 2019), would be an increase of 0.67 pence per share.
All four Mobeus-advised VCTs realised their investment in ASL. Total cash proceeds received by the four Mobeus-advised VCTs over the life of their investment in ASL are £21.15 million, against an original investment cost of £9.69 million. This represents a return of 2.18 times the original investment cost and an IRR of over 12.6% for each VCT in the eight and a half years that this investment was held.
