Kinnevik’s Interim Report 1 January – 31 March 2022

21 April 2022, 8:00 AMRegulatory information

”The first quarter of 2022 was turbulent. Russia’s invasion of Ukraine, which Kinnevik strongly condemns, is causing massive human suffering and dislocation and will have long lasting effects on human lives and global relations. Kinnevik has limited exposure to the directly affected areas, and our focus is on ensuring the safety of our investee’s employees in the region. In the private markets, we see a a pressure on valuations having an impact on our portfolio. However, despite the new macropolitical and financial reality, it is our firm belief that quality companies with innovative customer propositions will continue to grow and create value.”

Georgi Ganev, CEO of Kinnevik

Key Strategic Highlights

  • We doubled-down on our investment theme ’the future of work’ through two new investments – Omnipresent, a SaaS-based employment partner, and SafetyWing, a workforce insurance provider
  • Transcarent, the first comprehensive health and care experience company for self-insured employers, was added to the portfolio
  • We led a funding round in Agreena, supporting farmers’ transition to regenerative agriculture practices through the voluntary carbon offset market
  • Follow-on investments were concluded in Lunar, Common and Joint Academy
  • Private market valuations are increasingly coming in line with public market levels, putting short-term pressure on our net asset value but creating long-term opportunities as the pendulum shifts in favor of active, hands-on investors with long investment horizons
