2 AICPA PE-VC Task Force Update Tim Curt, Warburg Pincus (NVCA Board Member) David Larsen, Duff & Phelps

3 Task Force Mission Task Force objectives are — Harmonize the diverse views of industry participants, auditors and valuation specialists Produce a more user friendly guide with examples that can be used to reason through real situations faced by valuation specialists and auditors Working title: Determining Fair Value of Portfolio Company Investments of Venture Capital and Private Equity Firms and other Investment Companies

4 Why a New Accounting & Valuation Guide? Concerns Diversity in practice contributes to fair value measurements that are not consistent or comparable between investment companies year-over-year Increased PCAOB and SEC scrutiny have put pressure on the industry and the audit firms to provide better support for valuation conclusions Industry Assumptions vs. U.S. GAAP/IFRS Fair Value Investors typically are most focused on the ultimate exit for an investment; however, fair value focuses on market participant assumptions in an assumed transaction on the measurement date Conceptually challenging to reconcile market participant assumptions and investment objectives

5 Current Resources Cheap Stock Guide (June 2013), focused on equity securities issued as compensation IPEV Valuation Guidelines (December 2012), focused on later stage controlling investments; deferred discussion of enterprise-value allocations AICPA Audit and Accounting Guide: Investment Companies, which is focused primarily on accounting and auditing AICPA Investment Companies TPAs (TIS 6910) PEIGG – U.S. Private Equity Valuation Guidelines

12 Determining the Unit of Account and the Assumed Transaction for Measuring the Fair Value of Investments ASC 820 “assumed transaction” for measuring fair value is an exit from the investment on the measurement date –But transactions at intermediate dates rarely happen! Establish a framework that makes sense for the industry –How does the requirement under FASB ASC 820 to measure fair value based on an assumed sale or transfer of the Fund’s investment on the measurement date consider market participant assumptions regarding the way that value is expected to be realized from the investment? –How does the fair value measurement under FASB ASC 820 take into account the strategy that market participants would use to maximize value from the investment, considering their economic best interest? Status –TF established principles and applied them to examples –Draft chapter submitted to FinREC for review

13 Market Participant Assumptions Set context for measuring fair value – frame conversations considering the industry perspective: –What characteristics do market participants consider when evaluating portfolio company investments? –How do market participants establish their required rate of return, considering the risks and illiquidity of the investment? –How do market participants consider the expected holding period and the possible ultimate exit strategies for the investment? –What information do market participants require when evaluating an investment? How do investors make decisions when less than perfect information is available? Status –Several case studies based on real-world examples developed to ensure coverage of many different industries, types of investments, investment and exit strategies – follow each investment from issuance to exit –Primary topic of recent in-person TF meeting (May 2014)

14 Summary AICPA PE/VC Task Force mission is to promote consistency and build consensus among stakeholders from industry, audit and valuation –Leverage existing guidance to the extent possible, but recognize the gaps –Provide industry participants, auditors and valuations specialists with a one ‑ stop resource Looking to issue a working draft for comments in 2016
