1 Performance Benchmarks 2007 European Private Equity Conducted by Thomson Financial on behalf of EVCA

2 Methodology for Performance Benchmarks  All calculations are done at the fund level by Thomson Financial based on cash flows and NAVs reported by participating LPs and GPs  Returns are net of management fees and carried interest  Returns are calculated with cash flows in Euros  Cash flow database contains altogether 1,215 European funds  Definitions:  Pooled IRR: IRR of a group of funds where their cash flows have been aggregated together before IRR calculation  Investment Horizon Return: IRR calculated with Net Asset Value as capital outflow at beginning of period, Net Asset Value at end of period, and actual cash flows in between

3 Background  More difficult market conditions for GPs in the last 6 months  Leverage  Refinancing options  Pressure to invest  IPO market  Deal pipeline quality  Increased importance of reporting, benchmarking and analytics

13 Private Equity and Public Market Comparators 10-Year Rolling IRR for *Comparators are Internal Rates of Return (IRR). IRRs for public market indices are calculated by investing the equivalent cash flows that were invested in private equity into the public market index. Then an equivalent IRR is calculated for each index. Calculations based on methodology proposed by J Coller and published by A Long and C Nickles. Source: Thomson Financial on behalf of EVCA

14 Conclusion  Long-term performance  Stays constant at around 12% net IRR, with top quarter average IRR of 23.5%  5-year rolling average is steadily increasing for both venture and buyout funds  Shorter-term performance  3-year IRR remains very strong for buyout at 21.9% IRR, and decreases slightly to 4.4% IRR for venture funds
