CapMan Plc Group's Interim Report 1 January - 31 March 2011

Performance and main events during the review period:

- Group turnover totalled MEUR 8.2 (January-March 2010: MEUR 11.4).
- The Group's operating profit was MEUR 4.0 (MEUR 4.3).
- The Management Company business recorded an operating result of MEUR 0.0 (MEUR 3.2) and the Fund Investment business an operating profit of MEUR 4.0 (MEUR 1.1).
- Profit before taxes was MEUR 4.8 (MEUR 5.0) and profit after taxes was MEUR 3.7 (MEUR 3.5).
- Profit attributable to the owners of the parent company was MEUR 3.6 (MEUR 3.4). Earnings per share were 3.5 cents (3.3 cents).
- Capital under management as of 31 March 2011 was MEUR 3,415.6 (31.3.2010: MEUR 3,556.8).
- CapMan published its updated strategy, new vision and new financial targets on 4 February 2011.
- We have specified our guidance for 2011 and expect operating profit for 2011 to exceed the 2010 operating profit, mainly as a result of positive development in CapMan's own fund investments. Operating profit in 2010 was MEUR 6.3 excluding non-recurring items. In February CapMan's operating profit for 2011 was expected to slightly exceed the 2010 operating profit.


CEO Lennart Simonsen:
"We published our updated strategy and new vision during the first quarter of this year. We have now moved to the execution phase, where our focus will be on improving performance and simplifying operations to create the agility needed to operate in complex market space.

In terms of performance, the start of the year has been marked by a good level of activity in our investment operations. I am pleased with our result in the first quarter, which mainly resulted from the positive fair value development of our own fund investments. The OneMed exit, closed in March, returned a significant amount of paid-in capital to investors in the CapMan Buyout VIII fund and further strengthened CapMan's cash position. The positive trend in the M&A market continued during the first quarter. Bank financing for mergers and acquisitions and real estate investments is at a good level in the Nordic countries, and we are seeing high-quality deal flow in all key investment partnerships. Exit negotiations are under way in respect of a number of companies and properties in the portfolios of CapMan funds. We always aim to exit our investment targets at the best possible valuation, which might impact the timing of the exits. As anticipated, the fundraising market has remained challenging, although we see some signs of the market picking up during 2011. CapMan's significant new fundraising rounds will take place primarily in 2012.

Our latest decision related to simplifying our operations is to close our office in Denmark. We expect the results of the simplification measures already taken and currently under way to begin to show fully in our results from 2012 onwards."

Business operations

CapMan is a private equity fund manager operating in the Nordic countries and Russia. CapMan 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. Depending on the development of funds' investments and the general market situation, these can have a significant positive or negative impact on the Group's result.

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.

Significant events in Q1 2011

CapMan published its updated strategy and new vision on 4 February 2011. CapMan's vision is to be the best-performing European private equity firm, and its strategy is to combine the strengths of entrepreneurial partnerships and all capabilities within CapMan to provide excellent returns to its investors. CapMan also published new financial targets that relate particularly to profitability and the company's balance sheet. CapMan's target for return on equity is over 20% p.a.; its target for equity ratio is over 60%, and its dividend pay-out ratio (as before) at least 50% of the net profit. The amount of future dividends will be subject to CapMan's future earnings, financial position, and cash flows. Although CapMan does not have a separate target for growth, it will continue to exploit growth opportunities, particularly in its key investment partnerships.

CapMan signed a letter of intent on 4 February to divest its real estate consulting business. The transaction will not have a substantial impact on CapMan's result for 2011, and is expected to be closed during the third quarter of 2011, at the latest.

Group turnover and result in Q1 2011

The Group's turnover decreased in Q1 2011 compared to Q1 2010 and totalled MEUR 8.2 (MEUR 11.4). This was attributable to lower carried interest income and lower management fees than in the first quarter of 2010. Operating expenses were MEUR 8.3 (MEUR 8.3).

The Group's operating profit totalled MEUR 4.0 (MEUR 4.3). Financial income and expenses amounted to MEUR 0.4 (MEUR -0.1). CapMan's share of the profit of its associated companies was MEUR 0.5 (MEUR 0.8). Profit before taxes was MEUR 4.8 (MEUR 5.0) and profit after taxes was MEUR 3.7 (MEUR 3.5).

Profit attributable to the owners of the parent company was MEUR 3.6 (MEUR 3.4). Earnings per share were 3.5 cents (3.3 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 8.2 (MEUR 11.4). Management fees decreased, as expected, compared to the comparable period last year and totalled MEUR 7.1 (MEUR 8.4). This was attributable to exits made after the comparable period in question and the decision made in Q4 2010 to reduce the size of the CapMan Technology 2007 fund.

Income from real estate consulting remained similar to that in the same period last year and totalled MEUR 0.5 (MEUR 0.4). The aggregate total of management fees and income from real estate consulting was MEUR 7.6 (MEUR 8.8).

Carried interest income totalled MEUR 0.4 (MEUR 2.4) and came mainly from the Finnmezzanine III B fund following its transfer to carry after its exit from the OneMed Group.

The Management Company business recorded an operating result of MEUR 0.0 (MEUR 3.2) and a profit of MEUR 0.2 (MEUR 2.7).

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 in Q1 2011 were MEUR 4.1 (MEUR 1.1) and represented a 6.7% increase in value over the period (Q1 2010 saw a 1.9% increase in value). 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 31 March 2011 was MEUR 64.4 (31 March 2010: MEUR 59.4).

Operating profit for the Fund Investment business was MEUR 4.0 (MEUR 1.1) and the profit for the period was MEUR 3.4 (MEUR 0.8). CapMan's share of the result of its Maneq associated companies impacted profit performance. The performance of Maneq companies depends on the changes in the fair value of investments made by Maneq funds.

CapMan made new investments in its funds totalling MEUR 4.4 (MEUR 1.4) during the review period. The majority of these were made in the CapMan Buyout IX and CapMan Public Market funds. CapMan received distributions from funds totalling MEUR 10.1 (MEUR 2.4). The majority of this capital was received from the CapMan Buyout VIII following its exit from the OneMed Group. CapMan did not make any new commitments to funds in Q1 2011.

The amount of remaining commitments totalled MEUR 30.3 as of 31 March 2011 (31.3.2010: MEUR 41.2). The aggregate fair value of existing investments and remaining commitments as of 31 March 2011 was MEUR 94.7 (MEUR 100.6). 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 31 March 2011

CapMan's balance sheet totalled MEUR 156.0 as of 31 March 2011 (31.3.2010: MEUR 151.1). Non-current assets amounted to MEUR 105.6 (MEUR 112.5), of which the carrying amount of goodwill totalled MEUR 6.4 (MEUR 10.2). The decrease in goodwill resulted from the write-down on the reorganisation of technology operations in the last quarter of 2010.

Fund investments booked at fair value totalled MEUR 64.4 (MEUR 59.4). Long-term receivables amounted to MEUR 19.7 (MEUR 24.8), of which MEUR 19.0 (MEUR 23.8) 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 Maneq funds pay market rate interest on loans they receive from CapMan Plc.

Current assets amounted to MEUR 46.9 (MEUR 38.6). Liquid assets (cash in hand and at banks, plus other financial assets at fair value through profit and loss) increased as a result of the Access transaction closed in Q4 2010 and the OneMed exit closed in February 2011, and amounted to MEUR 42.9 (MEUR 30.2).

The size of CapMan's hybrid bond stands at MEUR 29.0. Due to the dividends paid, the interest on the bond for the financial year is deducted from equity in line with the terms of the loan. The interest on the bond is payable semi-annually. CapMan Plc had a bank financing package of MEUR 44.4 (MEUR 53.8) available as of 31 March 2011, of which MEUR 34.4 (MEUR 43.8) was utilised. Trade and other payables totalled MEUR 37.2 (MEUR 32.7). The Group's interest-bearing net debts amounted to MEUR -7.8 (MEUR 13.5).

The Group's cash flow from operations totalled MEUR 2.4 (MEUR 11.8). Income from fund management fees 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 12.3 (MEUR 0.3) and is related to fund investments and repaid capital received by the company. Cash flow before financing totalled MEUR 14.7 (MEUR 12.2), while cash flow from financing was MEUR -6.3 (MEUR -2.8).

Key figures as of 31 March 2011

CapMan's equity ratio as of 31 March 2011 was 54.7% (31.3.2010: 52.6%). Return on equity was 16.9% (18.1%) and return on investment was 16.6% (18.0%). The target level for the company's equity ratio is at least 60% and at least 20% for return on equity.

Fundraising in Q1 2011 and capital under management as of 31 March 2011

Capital under management refers to the remaining investment capacity of funds and capital already invested at acquisition cost. Capital increases as fundraising for new funds progresses and declines as exits are made.

As expected, the fundraising market remained challenging during the review period. CapMan continued fundraising for its CapMan Mezzanine V fund.

Capital under management decreased following the exits made after the comparable period last year and the decision made in Q4 2010 to reduce the size of the CapMan Technology 2007 fund. Capital under management totalled MEUR 3,415.6 as of 31 March 2011 (31.3. 2010: MEUR 3,556.8). Of this, MEUR 1,686.6 (MEUR 1,829.0) was held in funds making investments in portfolio companies and MEUR 1,729.0 (MEUR 1,727.8) in real estate funds.

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

Decisions adopted by the Annual General Meeting

CapMan Plc held its Annual General Meeting in Helsinki on 30 March 2011. The AGM confirmed the 2010 financial statements and discharged the Board of Directors and the CEOs from liability for the 2010 financial year. The meeting approved the Board of Directors' proposals un-amended. The AGM decided that a dividend of EUR 0.12 per share should be paid to shareholders, in line with the Board's proposal, and this was paid to shareholders on 11 April 2011.

The AGM confirmed that the Board of Directors shall consist of six members and that their term of office shall run until the end of the next AGM. Mr. Koen Dejonckheere, Mr. Conny Karlsson, Mr. Teuvo Salminen, and Mr. Heikki Westerlund were re-elected to the Board; and Mrs. Nora Kerppola and Mr. Claes de Neergaard were elected as new members.

PricewaterhouseCoopers Oy, Authorised Public Accountants, were elected as the company's auditors, with Mikko Nieminen, APA, as Lead Auditor. Terja Artimo, APA, of the same company, was elected as his deputy.

Authorisations granted to the Board by the AGM

The AGM authorised the Board to purchase CapMan B shares and accept them as pledges. The authorisation covers a maximum of 8,000,000 B shares and will remain in force until 30 June 2012. The AGM also authorised the Board to decide on a share issue, as well as the issuance of special rights entitling holders to shares. The authorisation covers a maximum of 12,000,000 B shares and will remain in force until 30 June 2012. The content of these authorisations is covered in more detail in the stock exchange release related to the decisions adopted by the AGM issued on 30 March 2011.

Organisation of the Board of Directors

At its organising meeting held on 30 March 2011, the Board of Directors elected Heikki Westerlund as Chairman and Teuvo Salminen as Vice Chairman. The Board established an Audit Committee comprising Teuvo Salminen (Chairman) and Conny Karlsson, a Remuneration Committee comprising Nora Kerppola (Chairman), Koen Dejonckheere, and Claes de Neergaard, and a Nomination Committee comprising Heikki Westerlund (Chairman), Koen Dejonckheere, and Teuvo Salminen.

Personnel

CapMan employed a total of 137 people as of 31 March 2011 (31.3.2010: 148), of whom 93 (102) 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 31 March 2011 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

The number of CapMan Plc shareholders increased by approximately 10% during the review period and totalled 5,329 as of 31 March 2011 (31.3.2010: 4,789). CapMan Plc did not issue any flagging notices during the review period.

Company shares

As of 31 March 2011, CapMan Plc held a total of 26,299 CapMan Plc B shares. There were no changes in the number of shares held by CapMan Plc in Q1 2011.

Stock option programmes

As of 31 March 2011, CapMan Plc had one stock option programme in place - Option Programme 2008 - as part of incentive and commitment arrangements for 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 share subscription price of the 2008A options is EUR 2.53 and of the 2008B option EUR 0.96. The subscription period for 2008A options started on 1 May 2011 and for 2008B options will start on 1 May 2012. Receivables from shares subscribed using these options will be entered in the company's invested unrestricted shareholders' equity. At the end of March 2011, 1,811,500 of 2008A stock option entitlements and 1,630,000 2008B stock option entitlements were allocated.

Trading and market capitalisation

CapMan Plc's B shares closed at EUR 1.60 on 31 March 2011 (31.3. 2010: EUR 1.74). The average price during the review period was EUR 1.72 (EUR 1.66). The highest price paid was EUR 1.84 (EUR 1.89) and the lowest EUR 1.58 (EUR 1.34). The number of CapMan Plc B shares traded in the first quarter of 2011 was clearly higher than in the same quarter in 2010. A total of 7.8 million (3.2 million) shares were traded, valued at MEUR 13.4 (MEUR 5.4).

CapMan Plc's market cap segment in NASDAQ OMX Helsinki was changed from mid cap to small cap on 1 January 2011. The market capitalisation of CapMan Plc B shares as of 31 March 2011 was MEUR 125.3 (MEUR 136.2). The market capitalisation of all company shares, including A shares valued at the closing price of B shares, was MEUR 134.9 (MEUR 146.7).

Events after the review period

In line with its strategy to focus on performance and simplification, CapMan has decided to close its office in Denmark.

Significant risks and short-term uncertainties

CapMan's Management Company business is generally 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 fund investments. 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. The EU's Basel III and Solvency II legislative initiatives will limit the ability of especially European banks and insurance companies to invest in private equity funds. This could also impact CapMan's fundraising, the amount of capital it has under management, and any new management fees that CapMan could receive.

Business environment

The prospects for growth in the demand for private equity continue to remain good over the long term. The financial recession and its impact have clearly slowed growth in the private equity industry, however. The fundraising market is expected to remain difficult in 2011. A recent study by Preqin* indicates that over half of the institutional investors that took part in the study expect to increase their investments in private equity funds in 2011 compared to 2010, which indicates that a gradual improvement could take place in 2011. A more dynamic buyout and M&A market, together with capital repaid through exits, will support this development. International investor interest is currently focused primarily on small and mid-cap buyout funds.

Private equity has consolidated its position in financing M&A activities and growth, and continues to focus typically on sector consolidation, family successions, and the privatisation of public services and functions. 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 both mergers and acquisitions and real estate investments is at a good level in the Nordic countries, and the volume of deal flow has remained good across all our investment areas. The portfolios of our funds contain a number of investments that 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 2011 as a whole are positive. In accordance with IPEVG criteria, the fair value development of portfolio companies will be impacted by how well listed companies are able to deliver on their profit projections and by how the 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.

In the real estate market, a significant proportion of transactions in recent years has taken place between Finnish investors, mainly institutional ones. International investor interest in the Finnish real estate market is clearly increasing, however. For the present, international interest has mainly focused on prime properties with a lower risk ratio; despite the relatively limited availability of this type of property on the market. Along with increased demand, rising yield expectations have tailed off and property valuation levels have risen slightly, particularly in the case of properties with a low level of lease-related cash flow risk. We expect the number of real estate transactions to increase during 2011. Occupancy rates for office premises have continued to be satisfactory and there have been signs of a recovery in demand. The retail sector grew by approximately 6% during the first two months of 2011, which had a positive effect on shopper number and the sales of large shopping centres. The positive development in shopping centres is expected to continue.

CapMan funds investing in portfolio companies have some MEUR 635 available for making new and add-on investments, while real estate funds have approximately MEUR 310 of investment capacity, mainly for developing their existing portfolios.

The European Parliament adopted the European Directive on Alternative Investment Fund Managers (AIFM directive) in November 2010. The directive is expected to come into force in summer 2011, after which member states will have 24 months to integrate it into national legislation. The directive stipulates 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

Management fees are expected to fall behind 2010 levels in 2011 as a result of exits reducing the management fee base and significant new fundraising rounds taking place primarily in 2012. Following restructuring carried out in 2010, operating expenses will decrease, but proportionally less than management fees. CapMan will continue to develop its organisation during 2011 to ensure growth in key investment partnerships. Management fees will not fully cover our operating expenses in 2011.

Exit negotiations are under way in respect of a number of companies and properties in the portfolios of CapMan funds. We expect the CapMan Equity VII A, B, and Sweden funds, as well as the Finnmezzanine III A fund, to transfer to carry during 2011-2012. The development of the fair value of fund investments will depend on the development of portfolio companies and the general market situation; we expect positive fair value development to continue in 2011.

We have specified our guidance and expect our operating profit for 2011 to exceed our 2010 operating profit, mainly as a result of positive development in CapMan's own fund investments. Operating profit in 2010 was MEUR 6.3 excluding non-recurring items.

In February CapMan's operating profit for 2011 was expected to slightly exceed the 2010 operating profit.

CapMan Plc Group will publish its Interim Report for 1 January - 30 June 2011 on Thursday, 11 August 2011.

APPENDIX 1: CAPMAN PLC GROUP'S FUNDS UNDER MANAGEMENT AS OF 31 MARCH 2011, MEUR

The tables below show the status of funds managed by CapMan as of 31 March 2011. 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 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 a 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.

The definitions of 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.

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) So-called "Old funds": Finnmezzanine Fund II B (established 1998, transferred to carry 2006). Fenno Fund (established in 1997, transferred to carry in 2005), Skandia I (established in 1997, transferred to carry in 2005) and Skandia II (established in 1997, transferred to carry in 2004) together form the Fenno Program, which is jointly managed with Fenno Management Oy.

2) The fund comprises 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 31 March 2011.

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 the previous payment of carried interest, a total of MEUR 54.9 in paid-in capital had not yet been returned to investors. This capital, together with the annual income entitlement payable on it, must be paid to investors before further carried interest can be distributed.

CapMan's management considers it unlikely that further carried interest will be provided by the CapMan Real Estate I fund. As a result, the fund is no longer included in the category of funds in carry. A total of some MEUR 6 of carried interest was not entered in CapMan's profit in 2007 but instead left in reserve in case that some of the carried interest would have to be returned to investors in future.

6) CapMan Technology 2007: Further to the reorganisation of technology investment operations announced in November 2010, the size of CapMan Technology 2007 was decreased by 30% at the end of December 2010.

APPENDIX 2: OPERATIONS OF CAPMAN'S FUNDS UNDER MANAGEMENT, 1 JANUARY - 31 MARCH 2011
During the review period, the operations of private equity funds managed by CapMan comprised direct investments in portfolio companies in the Nordic countries and Russia (CapMan Private Equity), as well as real estate investments (CapMan Real Estate). Investments by CapMan funds investing in portfolio companies focus on two key investment areas in the Nordic countries and on one investment area in Russia. The investment areas are middle market buyouts (CapMan Buyout), investments in mid-sized companies operating in Russia (CapMan Russia), and significant minority shareholdings in listed small and mid-cap companies (CapMan Public Market). The investment focus of CapMan's real estate funds is on real estate properties, principally in Finland. CapMan also has two other investment areas (CapMan Technology and CapMan Life Science), these do not make new investments, but focus instead on developing the value of their existing portfolio companies. These two investments areas are reported under Private Equity in the category "Other".
