- CapMan is considering divesting its real estate consulting operations while staying committed to the further development of real estate fund management business.

CEO Lennart Simonsen comments on events during the review period and the company's future prospects:

"The first nine months of the year were active in terms of both new investments and exits. We made a total of eight new investments and completed 11 exits. We continued to work on developing the value of our portfolio companies, both in the Nordic region and Russia, and they recorded largely good financial performance.

Much of the uncertainty that has characterised the M&A market recently has disappeared and the level of deal flow is good in all the areas that we invest in. Bank financing for mergers and acquisitions and real estate investments is at a good level. Our funds are working on a number of exits and we expect some of these to take place over the next six months.

As anticipated the fundraising market continued to be difficult during the third quarter. We are satisfied with the EUR 60 million raised during the first round of fundraising for the CapMan Mezzanine V fund.

We launched during the third quarter a strategic review on which we will report in due course. In developing CapMan the key targets that also support each other are to improve our profitability and to simplify our operations.

Our profit after taxes, EUR 7.0 million, was satisfactory."

Business operations

CapMan is an alternative asset manager, which also makes investments in its own funds. The guiding principle for the investment activities of the funds managed by the Group is to work actively and directly towards increasing the value of investments. The Group has two operating segments: the Management Company business and the Fund Investment business.

Income from the Management Company business is derived from management fees paid by funds, carried interest received from funds, and income generated by real estate consulting. Management fees and real estate consulting income normally cover the company's operating costs and generally represent a steady and very predictable source of income.

Income from the Fund Investment business comes from changes in the fair value of investments and realised returns on CapMan's own fund investments, and these can have a significant positive or negative impact on the Group's result, depending on the development of the funds' investments and the general market situation.

As there may be considerable quarterly fluctuations in carried interest and the fair value of fund investments, the Group's financial performance should be analysed over a longer time span than the quarterly cycle.

Group turnover and result during January-September 2010

The Group's turnover increased compared to the equivalent period last year and totalled MEUR 29.7 (January-September 2009: MEUR 26.3). Operating expenses totalled MEUR 25.4 (MEUR 24.4).

The Group's operating profit rose to MEUR 6.0 (MEUR -2.2). Financial income and expenses amounted to MEUR 0.2 (MEUR -0.4). CapMan's share of the profit of its associated companies increased clearly compared to the equivalent period last year and totalled MEUR 2.5 (MEUR -0.8). Profit before taxes was MEUR 8.6 (MEUR -3.4) and profit after taxes was MEUR 7.0 (MEUR -3.0).

Profit attributable to the owners of the parent company was MEUR 6.8 (MEUR -3.2). Earnings per share were 5.9 cents (-6.6 cents).

A quarterly breakdown of turnover and profit, together with turnover, operating profit/loss, and profit/loss by segment for the review period, can be found in the tables section of this report.

Management Company business

Turnover generated by the Management Company business during the review period totalled MEUR 29.7 (MEUR 26.3). Management fees increased compared to the equivalent period last year and amounted to MEUR 25.2 (MEUR 24.6).

Income from real estate consulting totalled MEUR 1.2 (MEUR 1.3). The aggregate total of management fees and income from real estate consulting was MEUR 26.4 (MEUR 25.9).

Carried interest income totalled MEUR 2.6 (MEUR 0.0) and came mainly from the Finnventure V fund following its exit from the financial administration services company Pretax and its sale of the shares in the American company, On2 Technologies, that the fund received when exiting Hantro Products Oy in 2007.

The Management Company business recorded an operating profit of MEUR 4.6 (MEUR 2.1) and a profit of MEUR 4.0 (MEUR 3.4).

The status of the funds managed by CapMan is presented in more detail in Appendix 1.

Fund Investment business

Fair value changes related to fund investments during the review period were MEUR 1.7 (MEUR -4.2) and represented a 2.7% increase in value over the period. Changes during the third quarter were MEUR 1.3 (MEUR 0.4), equivalent to a 2.1% increase in value over this period. The development of individual portfolio companies, as well as changes in the market capitalisation of their listed peers, impacted fair value development. The aggregate fair value of fund investments as of 30 September 2010 was MEUR 62.7 (30 September 2009: MEUR 53.9).

Operating profit for the Fund Investment business was MEUR 1.3 (MEUR -4.4) and the profit for the period was MEUR 3.0 (MEUR -6.3). Profit performance benefited from CapMan's share of the result of its Maneq associated companies. Changes in the fair value of fund investments made by Maneq companies contributed here.

CapMan made new investments in its funds totalling MEUR 7.8 (MEUR 9.2) during the period. Investments were made in funds including CapMan Buyout IX, CapMan Buyout VIII, CapMan Russia, and CapMan Technology 2007. CapMan received distributions from funds totalling MEUR 5.9 (MEUR 0.4). The majority of this capital was received following exits made by the CapMan Equity VII, CapMan Buyout VIII, CapMan Mezzanine IV, and CapMan Public Market funds. CapMan gave a new MEUR 5 commitment to the CapMan Mezzanine V fund in the third quarter.

The amount of remaining commitments totalled MEUR 39.7 as of 30 September 2010 (30.9.2009: MEUR 47.6). The aggregate fair value of existing investments and remaining commitments as of 30 September was MEUR 102.4 (MEUR 101.6). CapMan's objective is to invest 1-5% of the original capital in the new funds that it manages, depending on fund size, fund demand, and CapMan's own investment capacity.

Investments in portfolio companies are valued at fair value in accordance with the International Private Equity and Venture Capital Valuation Guidelines (IPEVG), while real estate assets are valued in accordance with the value appraisals of external experts, as detailed in Appendix 1. Fair value changes have no impact on the Group's cash flows.

Investments at fair value and remaining investment capacity by investment area are presented in the tables section.

Balance sheet and financial position as of 30 September 2010

No substantial changes took place in CapMan's balance sheet total during the review period, which stood at MEUR 146.4 as of 30 September (30.9.2009: MEUR 142.9). Non-current assets amounted to MEUR 117.4 (30.9.2009: MEUR 101.6). No changes took place in goodwill during the review period, which stood at MEUR 10.2 as of 30 September (30.9.2009: MEUR 10.2).

Fund investments booked at fair value rose to MEUR 62.7 (MEUR 53.9). Long-term receivables amounted to MEUR 26.1 (MEUR 24.0), of which MEUR 25.4 (MEUR 22.0) were loan receivables from Maneq funds. In addition to CapMan Plc, CapMan personnel are investors in Maneq funds. The expected returns from CapMan's Maneq investments are broadly in line with the return expectations for CapMan's other investments in its own funds, and these funds pay market rate interest on loans they receive from CapMan Plc.

Current assets amounted to MEUR 29.0 (MEUR 41.3). Liquid assets (cash in hand and at banks, plus other financial assets at fair value through profit and loss) amounted to MEUR 22.1 (MEUR 30.7).

The size of CapMan's hybrid bond stands at MEUR 29.0. Due to dividend payments, the interest on the bond for the financial year is deducted from equity in line with the terms of the loan and is payable semi-annually. Interest on the hybrid bond totalling MEUR 1.6 was paid in June. CapMan Plc had a bank financing package of MEUR 50.6 (MEUR 56.9) available as of 30 September, of which MEUR 40.6 (MEUR 46.9) was utilised. There were no significant changes in the amount of interest-bearing liabilities. Trade and other payables totalled MEUR 21.4 (MEUR 17.7). Outstanding interest on the hybrid bond for this year is included in current liabilities. The Group's interest-bearing net debts amounted to MEUR 19.8 (MEUR 16.2).

The Group's cash flow from operations totalled MEUR 12.3 (MEUR 2.6). Income from management fees paid by funds is paid semi-annually, in January and July, and is shown under working capital in the cash flow statement. Cash flow from investments totalled MEUR -1.4 (MEUR -8.8) and was primarily related to fund investments and repaid capital received by the company. Cash flow before financing totalled MEUR 10.9 (MEUR -6.2), while cash flow from financing was MEUR -7.7 (MEUR 10.0). Cash flow from financing includes the MEUR 3.4 dividend paid in April.

Key figures as of 30 September 2010

CapMan's equity ratio as of 30 September 2010 was 57.3% (30.9.2009: 55.3%). Return on equity was 11.9% (-5.5%) and return on investment was 10.6% (-2.0%). The target level for the company's equity ratio is at least 50% and for return on equity at least 25%.

Fundraising in January-September and capital under management as of 30 September 2010

Capital under management refers to the remaining investment capacity of funds and capital already invested at acquisition cost. CapMan's target is to increase its capital under management by an average of 15% a year. Capital increases as fundraising for new funds progresses and declines as exits are made.

The fundraising market continued to be challenging during the review period. According to a recent study by Preqin*), worldwide fundraising during the third quarter of 2010 increased by 20% from the previous quarter, which saw the least amount of capital raised for seven years. Despite this, fundraising fell short of the capital raised in the first quarter and the fundraising time frame lengthened to an average of over 20 months.

The CapMan Mezzanine V fund held its first closing at MEUR 60 on 23 September 2010. CapMan's commitment to the fund is MEUR 5. The target size of the new fund is MEUR 150, or approximately half the size of the CapMan Buyout IX fund. The two funds will invest mainly in the same companies.

The CapMan Buyout IX fund held its final closing on 30 June 2010 and reached a final size of MEUR 294.6. In addition, the investment capacity of the CapMan Hotels RE fund rose during the first quarter from MEUR 872.5 to MEUR 950.0 when debt financing was increased to the maximum amount allowed under the fund's terms.

The operations of the Finnventure Rahasto II Ky, Finnventure Rahasto III Ky, and Finnventure Rahasto III G funds ended during the review period when the funds in question exited their last remaining portfolio company, Oy Turo Tailor Ab.

CapMan is continuing to investigate new opportunities in the real estate market, including the potential for taking an active role on the housing property market in the Greater Helsinki region.

Capital under management totalled MEUR 3,578.3 as of 30 September 2010 (30.9.2009: MEUR 3,504.1). Of this, MEUR 1,850.5 (MEUR 1,845.0) was in funds making investments in portfolio companies and MEUR 1,727.8 (MEUR 1,659.1) in real estate funds.

Funds under management and their investment activities are presented in more detail in Appendices 1 and 2.

Changes in the company's management

Niko Haavisto was appointed CapMan Plc's CFO and a member of the Management Group on 28 January 2010 and took up these positions on 26 April 2010. Lennart Simonsen was appointed CapMan Plc's CEO and a Senior Partner on 30 March 2010 and took up these positions as of 1 June 2010. These appointments are covered in greater detail in the stock exchange releases issued on 28 January and 30 March this year.

CapMan Group's HR Director and member of the Management Group, Hilkka-Maija Katajisto, resigned in September and her employment with the company will end on 31 December 2010.

Authorisations held by the Board of Directors

Following a decision by the Annual General Meeting, CapMan Plc's Board of Directors is authorised to purchase CapMan shares and accept them as pledges, and decide on a share issue and the issuance of stock option rights and other entitlements related to CapMan shares. These authorisations will remain in force until 30 June 2011 and their content is covered in more detail in the stock exchange release on the decisions adopted by the Annual General Meeting issued on 30 March 2010.

Personnel

CapMan employed a total of 149 people as of 30 September 2010 (30.9.2009: 147), of whom 102 (106) worked in Finland and the remainder in the other Nordic countries, Russia, and Luxembourg. A breakdown of personnel by country and team is presented in the tables section.

Shares and share capital

There were no changes in either CapMan Plc's share capital or the number of shares during the review period. Share capital as of 30 September 2010 totalled EUR 771,586.98. B shares totalled 78,281,766 and A shares 6,000,000. B shares entitle holders to one vote per share and A shares to 10 votes per share.

Shareholders

CapMan Plc had 4,928 shareholders as of 30 September 2010 (30.9.2009: 4,729). No significant changes took place in the company's ownership during the review period and no flagging notices were issued.

Company shares

As of 30 September 2010, CapMan Plc held a total of 26,299 CapMan Plc B shares and made no purchases of company shares during the review period.

Stock option programmes

As of 30 September 2010, CapMan Plc had one stock option programme in place - Option Programme 2008 - as part of incentive and commitment arrangements for key personnel. The maximum number of stock options issued under Option Programme 2008 will be 4,270,000, which will carry an entitlement to subscribe to a maximum of 4,270,000 new B shares. The programme is divided into A and B series, both of which cover a maximum of 2,135,000 option entitlements. The subscription period for 2008A options will start on 1 May 2011 and for 2008B options on 1 May 2012. Receivables from shares subscribed using these options will be entered in the company's invested unrestricted shareholders' equity. As of the end of the review period, 2,068,250 of 2008A stock option entitlements and 1,855,000 of 2008B stock option entitlements were allocated.

Trading and market capitalisation

CapMan Plc's B shares closed at EUR 1.42 on 30 September 2010 (30.9.2009: EUR 1.31). The average price during the review period was EUR 1.60 (EUR 1.02). The highest price paid was EUR 1.98 (EUR 1.63) and the lowest EUR 1.28 (EUR 0.77). A total of 9.0 million (12.9 million) CapMan Plc B shares were traded, valued at MEUR 14.4 (MEUR 14.1).

The market capitalisation of CapMan Plc B shares as of 30 September 2010 was MEUR 111.2 (MEUR 101.8). The market capitalisation of all company shares, including A shares valued at the closing price of B shares, was MEUR 119.7 (MEUR 109.6).

Significant risks and short-term uncertainties

CapMan's Management Company business is profitable on an annual basis, but a major element of uncertainty is associated with forecasting the company's overall financial performance because of the timing of revenue generated from possible carried interest and the development of the fair value of portfolio companies. Structural changes in the Nordic region's export industries could have a negative impact on the operations of some portfolio companies and their profitability. The fundraising environment is expected to remain challenging, for the next 12 months at least, which could impact the outcome of fundraising during this period, and the amount of capital under management, and any new management fees that CapMan could receive.

Business environment

The prospects for growth in the demand for alternative assets continue to remain good over the long term. The financial recession and its impacts have clearly slowed growth in the alternative asset class. A recent study by Preqin*) indicates that the fundraising market improved slightly during the third quarter of the year, but the market is expected to remain difficult over the short term. Around a fifth of the institutional investors that took part in the study expect to increase their investments in private equity funds over the next 12 months, which, if it realises, would signal a gradual improvement next year. A more dynamic buyout and M&A market, together with capital repaid through exits, would support this development. The interest of international investors is currently focused primarily on small and mid-cap buyout funds, while real estate properties are also the subject of interest among Nordic pension funds.

Private equity has consolidated its position in financing M&A activities and growth, and continues to focus typically on sector consolidation, family successions, the privatisation of public services and functions, and the commercialisation of R&D in the technology and life science sectors. Increased entrepreneurial activity has also boosted growth. Real estate funds, for their part, have gained an established share of institutional investors' investment allocations.

CapMan funds investing in portfolio companies will continue to implement their investment strategies. Bank financing for mergers and acquisitions and real estate investments is at a good level, and the volume of deal flow has remained good across all our investment areas. The portfolios of our funds contain a number of investments where the value creation process has been completed and which CapMan is now ready to exit from.

The development of our portfolio companies during the review period was largely good, and profit and growth projections for 2010 as a whole are positive. In accordance with IPEVG criteria, the fair value development of portfolio companies will also be impacted by how well listed companies are able to deliver on their profit projections and by how the exchange rates of currencies used in our areas of operations perform against the euro. We plan to keep sufficient reserves in our funds to support the growth and financing of our companies. Long-term cooperation with the Nordic banks is particularly important for us, and has worked well.

Finnish insurance companies investing solely their own equity have been active on the property investment market, and international investors have also returned to the market. The combined trend of weakening property demand and rising yield expectations has tailed off and property valuation levels have stabilised or even risen in respect of properties with a low level of lease-related cash flow risk. Demand for real estate with long leases is good. We expect the number of real estate transactions to increase during the winter of 2010-2011. Occupancy rates and demand for office and retail premises have continued to be satisfactory. The vacancy rates for office premises are expected to rise in Greater Helsinki, however, putting a downward pressure on rents. The demand for real estate consulting has remained stable. The portfolios of CapMan's real estate funds include a number of properties from which funds are now ready to exit.

CapMan funds investing in portfolio companies have some MEUR 790 available for making new and add-on investments, while real estate funds have approximately MEUR 360 of investment capacity, mainly for developing their existing portfolios.

The European Parliament is expected to vote on the European Directive on Alternative Investment Fund Managers (AIFM directive) on 10 November 2010. As and when passed, the directive will stipulate an operating license for participants, as well as other significant requirements, including fund investor and authority reporting. Thanks to its organisation and operating model, CapMan is in a good position to meet the challenge these new regulations represent.

Future outlook

Guidance in the Interim Report published on 6 August 2010:

Management fees and income from real estate consulting will cover CapMan's fixed costs and interest expenses in 2010. Exit negotiations are under way in respect of a number of companies in the portfolios of CapMan funds, but the cautious atmosphere in the marketplace could well continue to postpone the exits from portfolio companies planned by our funds. We expect the CapMan Equity VII A, B, and Sweden funds, as well as the Finnmezzanine III A and B funds, to transfer to carry during 2011. The development of the fair value of fund investments will depend on the development of portfolio companies and the general market situation; we expect fair value development to be at least neutral for the rest of this year.

We expect the overall result for 2010 to exceed the previous year's result.

Revised guidance on 5 November 2010:

Management fees and income from real estate consulting will cover CapMan's fixed costs and interest expenses in 2010. Exit negotiations are under way in respect of a number of companies in the portfolios of CapMan funds. We expect the CapMan Equity VII A, B, and Sweden funds, as well as the Finnmezzanine III A and B funds, to transfer to carry during 2011. The development of the fair value of fund investments will depend on the development of portfolio companies and the general market situation; we expect fair value development to be at least neutral for the rest of this year.

We expect the overall result for 2010 to exceed the previous year's result.

APPENDIX 1: CAPMAN PLC GROUP'S FUNDS UNDER MANAGEMENT AS OF 30 SEPTEMBER 2010, MEUR

The tables below show the status of funds managed by CapMan as of 30 September 2010. When analysing the schedule for funds to start generating carried interest, the relationship between the cumulative cash flows already distributed to investors and paid-in capital should be compared. When a fund starts generating carried interest the capital must be returned and an annual preferential return paid on it. The fair value of a portfolio, including any of the fund's net cash assets, represents the capital distributable to investors at the end of the review period.

When assessing the cash flow a fund needs in order to start generating carried interest, it should be noted that the capital of some funds has not yet been called and paid in. The percentage figure in the last column on the right of the tables below shows CapMan's share of cash flows if the fund is generating carried interest. After the previous distribution of profits, any new capital paid in, as well as the preferential annual return on it, must be returned to investors before further carried interest income can be paid. Of the funds already generating carried interest, the Finnventure V fund can still make follow-on investments in its current portfolio companies.

The definitions for column headings are presented below the tables.

Explanation of the terminology used in the fund tables

Size/Original investment capacity:

Total capital committed to a fund by investors, i.e. the original size of the fund. For real estate funds, investment capacity also includes the share of debt financing used by the fund.

Capital under management by Access Capital Partners is presented separately in Appendix 3.

Paid-in capital:

Total capital paid into a fund by investors at the end of the review period.

Fund's current portfolio at fair value:

Fund investments in portfolio companies are valued at fair value in accordance with the International Private Equity and Venture Capital Valuation Guidelines (IPEVG, www.privateequityvaluation.com), and investments in real estate assets are valued in accordance with the appraisals of external experts.

Fair value is the amount for which an asset could be exchanged between knowledgeable, willing parties in an arm's length transaction. Due to the nature of private equity investment activities, fund portfolios contain investments with a fair value that exceeds their acquisition cost, as well as investments with a fair value less than the acquisition cost.

Net cash assets:

When calculating the investors' share, a fund's net cash assets must be taken into account in addition to the portfolio at fair value. The proportion of debt financing in real estate funds is presented separately in the table.

CapMan's share of cash flow if a fund generates carried interest:

When a fund has generated the cumulative preferential return for investors specified in the fund agreements, the management company is entitled to an agreed share of future cash flows from the fund, known as carried interest.

Cash flow, in this context, includes both profit distributed by funds and repayments of capital. After the previous distribution of profits, any new capital called in, as well as any annual preferential returns on it, must be returned to investors before any new distribution of profits can be paid.

Footnotes to the table

1) The Fenno Rahasto, Skandia I, and Skandia II funds comprise the Fenno Program, which is managed jointly with Fenno Management Oy.

2) The fund is comprised of two or more legal entities (parallel funds are presented separately only if the focus of their investment or portfolios differ significantly).

3) Currency items are valued at the average exchange rates quoted on 30 September 2010.

4) CapMan Mezzanine IV: The paid-in commitment includes a MEUR 192 bond issued by Leverator Plc. Distributed cash flow includes payments to both bond subscribers and to the fund's partners.

5) CapMan Real Estate I: Distributed cash flow includes repayment of the bonds and cash flow to the fund's partners. Following previous distribution of profits, paid-in capital totalling MEUR 56.8 has yet to be returned to investors.

This capital, together with the preferential annual income payable on it, must be paid to investors before any new distribution of profits can be paid. Based on the market situation, CapMan's management considers it unlikely that the CapMan Real Estate I fund will generate any new distribution of profits in the future. As a result, the fund has been transferred out of the category of funds generating carried interest. A total of some MEUR 6 million from the profit distributed by the fund in 2007 was not booked as revenue because of concerns that the money in question would have to be returned at some point in the future.

APPENDIX 2: OPERATIONS OF CAPMAN'S FUNDS UNDER MANAGEMENT, 1 JANUARY - 30 SEPTEMBER 2010

The operations of private equity funds managed by CapMan during the review period comprised direct investments in portfolio companies, mainly in the Nordic countries and Russia (CapMan Private Equity), as well as real estate investments, mainly in Finland (CapMan Real Estate). The investment activities of funds making direct investments in portfolio companies include mid-sized buyout investments in manufacturing industry and the service and retail sectors in the Nordic countries, technology investments in growth-stage and later growth-stage technology companies in the Nordic countries, life science investments in companies specialising in medical technology and healthcare services in the Nordic countries, investments in mid-sized companies operating in Russia, and investments in significant minority holdings in listed companies in the Nordic countries.

Significant add-on investments were made in Walki Group Oy, Komas Group Oy, Northern Alliance Oy, Proxima AB, Affecto Oyj, Papa John's, and Avelon Group Oy.

The Farmos transaction was a partial exit for the funds from their investment in Orion's Noiro cosmetics unit (now Lumene) made in 2003. The funds made also a partial exit from MQ Sweden AB. Exits made during the review period had a combined acquisition cost of MEUR 99.7.
