New Venturetec result expectation for the fiscal year 2017/18


New Venturetec: Result expectation for the fiscal year 2017/2018 ended September 30, 2018


Zug, October 4, 2018. New Venturetec ended its fiscal year 2017/18 on September 30, 2018. Based on the current valuations of the portfolio companies New Venturetec expects a net profit of approximately USD 26,000,000 or USD 5.20 per share. The main reason for the result is the increase of the traded share price of Myriad Genetics, from USD 36.18 to USD 46.00 (+27.14%) and the increase of the traded share price of Osiris Therapeutics, from USD 4.60 per share to USD 11.10 (+141.30%) per share. The estimated numbers could change materially during the course of the end year valuation process of the portfolio, which will be done in the coming weeks. The final annual financials, together with the annual report of New Venturetec 2017/18 will be published on November 5, 2018.

New Venturetec did not give any guidance on its performance for the fiscal year 2017/18 and has never done so in the past.
