21/02/2013 - 06:30 | Financial

As well as publishing annual and semi-annual results, Gimv has opted to provide quarterly business updates without publishing full results.

The figures given below cover the period from 1 April 2012 to 31 December 2012. All figures refer to the 'limited consolidation' of Gimv (non-audited figures).

Managing Director Koen Dejonckheere, on the activities of the past quarter: "The positive quarterly results and the favourable development of Gimv's equity position are directly attributable to a number of divestments with nice capital gains. The positive result was achieved in spite of the fact that the market valuation of our portfolio was negatively impacted in the third quarter – as in previous quarters – from the ongoing difficult economic situation."
