Management Commentary

“Georgia Capital has delivered an excellent performance in the first half of 2019, as our NAV per share increased by 21.6% to GEL 54 at 30 June 2019. This strong growth was a result of a 14.8% increase in NAV to GEL 1.9 billion and a 5.6% reduction in outstanding shares during 1H19. The NAV growth reflects GEL 347 million value creation across the portfolio businesses, where GEL 246 million value was generated by the listed portfolio businesses and GEL 101 million value was provided by our private portfolio businesses. The decrease in share count was driven by our share buyback programme and the subsequent cancellation of 2 million Georgia Capital shares and transfer of 0.7 million shares to the management trust. At 30 June 2019, our firepower available for deployment remained high at GEL 556 million.“
