Australian Private Equity Outperformed S&P/ASX 300 Index by 10% for the 12 Months to Q2 2012

BOSTON, MA and SYDNEY, AUSTRALIA -- (Marketwire) -- 11/06/12 -- The Cambridge Associates LLC Australia Private Equity and Venture Capital Index (C|A Australia Index) rose by 2.95% (net of fees) in the twelve months leading to 30 June 2012, according to the latest quarterly report released by The Australian Private Equity and Venture Capital Association Ltd (AVCAL) today.

The C|A Australia Index outperformed the S&P/ASX 300 Accumulation Index (ASX 300) by 10% over the same period.

For the quarter ending 30 June 2012, the C|A Australia Index dipped by 0.28%, breaking five consecutive quarters of positive returns. Nevertheless, this was still 4.74% in excess of the ASX 300 Index's return of -5.02%.

The C|A Australia Index's medium to long term results remained steady, with annualised returns of 9.08%, 1.76% and 6.60% over the 3-, 5- and 10-year horizons respectively. In contrast, the ASX 300's returns fluctuated between 5.56%, -4.15% and 6.94% over the corresponding horizons.

In the twelve months leading to 30 June 2012, a total of AU$2.3B was distributed back to LPs while $1.6B was drawn down. Over this period, distributions peaked in Q4 2011, followed by a deceleration in Q1 2012, before picking up again in Q2 2012.

Australian Private Equity & Venture Capital Association (AVCAL) CEO Dr Katherine Woodthorpe said, "We are really pleased to see how the numbers demonstrate the stable, long term value generated by private equity in their investors' portfolios."

"And, contrary to the idea that private equity performance numbers were artificially stabilised during the global financial crisis by 'stale' prices carried forward in private equity portfolios, we now have several years' worth of post-crisis exits data, and it can be seen that private equity returns as a whole have consistently done well over the years compared to listed markets on a net cash-on-cash basis."

Eugene Snyman, Managing Director at Cambridge Associates' office in Sydney, Australia, said: "Following the slight decrease in distributions to LPs in the first quarter of 2012, the increase in Q2 will likely come as good news to investors. That said, this minor volatility in distributions is not a concern as Australian private equity continues to deliver steady long-term value."

The report is published on the AVCAL website www.avcal.com.au.
