Managing Director, Koen Dejonckheere, on the past quarter: "The intensive investment and divestment activities continued in recent months. Realised capital gains on exits and the sustained value creation processes at our portfolio companies again resulted in a strong portfolio return and further growth in equity. This confirmed the positive trend of the first semester."
In the third quarter, the value of equity increased from EUR 48.5 to EUR 49.5 per share as at 31 December 2017.

Total investments (on balance sheet) for the first nine months amounted to EUR 132.5 million (EUR 54.9 million in the third quarter).
Total divestment (on balance sheet) for the first nine months amounted to EUR 283.6 million (EUR 196.6 million in the third quarter).
