A Compelling Story at an Attractive Discount
Molten Ventures continues to deliver strong returns, fully meeting its guidance for FY22, though the current environment is clearly more challenging than the buoyant conditions seen in 2021. The group is in the process of raising its growth fund and is also looking to extend its debt facilities to ensure that it can take advantage of new investment opportunities in FY23. Underlying portfolio performance remains strong (averaging above 65% y-o-y revenue growth for the core portfolio). At the closing price of 704p (28 April), the shares were trading on 0.76x FY22 NAV. Molten Ventures is a London-based venture capital (VC) firm that invests in the European technology sector.
