Performance of All Alumni Ventures Funds, as of March 31, 2022

NOTES

  1. Fund Vintage is defined as the year in which a fund’s first investment was made.
  2. Total Investable Capital is the capital available to invest after management fees for the 10-year life of the funds have been removed.
  3. Invested Capital is the capital that the AV funds invested through the end of the period.
  4. Current Valuation includes uninvested cash and reflects the fair value of the investments as determined in good faith by AV according to its valuation policy. Unrealized investments are priced at cost and then re-priced upon consummation of an arm’s length transaction or written off as a total loss. Relating to Exits, it represents the market value as of the last day of the period of any owned publicly traded investments, escrow(s), and/or estimated proceeds receivable at a future date. Current Valuation of Exits does not reflect any potential contingent consideration that could increase gains received on the investment.
  5. MOIC (Multiple on Invested Capital) is equivalent to the multiple of return realized gross of fees and equals (Current Valuation + Amounts Returned) / Investable Capital. Total Investable Capital equals Invested Capital plus uninvested cash. Reported performance would be lower if the impact of fees were reflected.
  6. Cash-on-Cash Return is equivalent to the multiple of return realized by an investor on their investment after the impact of management fees has been taken into account and equals (Current Valuation + Amounts Returned) / Total Paid-in Capital. Reported performance would be lower if the impact of potential performance fees was reflected.
  7. 2021: Partial year; data does not yet reflect capital deployed by Funds launched in 2021 but deploying still in 2022.
  8. 2022: Partial year.
Interpreting the Data

Considerations for you as you evaluate these numbers: This annual performance data reflects the aggregated performance of every AV fund which began investing in each year. Individual fund returns may be higher or lower than the aggregated performance. All AV funds are materially different from one another, whether due to investment focus, alumni connection, vintage, investor base, or other factors.

Current Valuation, MOIC (Multiple on Investable Capital), and Cash-on-Cash Return are metrics describing the total “paper valuation” of the portfolio. This includes realized distributions already paid out and unrealized changes to a company’s valuation based upon a closed round of financing. Except for Amounts Returned there is no assurance that any additional value can be obtained in the future. 

Often, one can expect the MOIC to be around one and the Cash-on-Cash Return to be less than one in the early years. Winning companies typically take some time to shine, while losing companies usually struggle to scale and fail early. All funds are 10-year funds, and most need 6+ years to mature before a clear view of performance can be seen.

According to Cambridge Associates, fund performance takes quite some time to become meaningful: Based on analysis of over 2,000 private investment funds raised between 1995 and 2005, “most funds require about six years before they ‘settle’ into their ultimate quartile rankings as measured by IRR.”

A Note About Valuation

Valuations reflect the total fair value of the portfolio as determined in good faith by AV according to its valuation policy.

Unrealized investments are recorded at cost, and are only re-valued upon consummation of an arm’s-length transaction, either an Up-round or Down-round in a portfolio company, in accordance with this policy, or written off as a total loss if AV so determines. Up-round generally means a financing subsequent to AV’s investment has occurred at a higher per-share valuation (more favorable) than AV’s original investment. Down-round generally means a subsequent financing has occurred at a lower per-share valuation (less favorable) than AV’s original investment. Amounts Returned is based upon an amount received in the event of an Exit (such as an acquisition by an acquirer) or an initial public offering (IPO), or similar proceeds. Exits include escrows and amounts receivable at a future date but do not include contingent compensation that may not be realized. Public holdings are publicly traded securities priced at market value as of the last day of the period.

Recent Exits in the Alumni Ventures Portfolio

The table below reflects each Exit of a portfolio company investment from an Alumni Ventures Fund from 04/01/21 to 03/31/22. Only certain AV funds invested in any particular investment appear in this table. This table, or any portion of it, does not represent the investment experience of any specific investor. This table does not include the many AV fund investments that have not yet experienced an Exit, and those investments may fare better or worse than those in the table. The names of the portfolio companies and the exact dates of investments and exits have been hidden due to confidentiality requirements of the companies.

  2. MOIC (Multiple on Invested Capital) is equivalent to the multiple of return realized gross of fees and equals (Current Valuation + Amounts Returned) / Invested Capital. Reported performance would be lower if the impact of fees were reflected.
  3. Cash-on-Cash Return is equivalent to the multiple of return realized by an investor on their investment after the impact of management fees has been taken into account and equals (Current Valuation + Amounts Returned) / Total Paid-in Capital. For these charts, Invested Capital has been grossed up to determine Total Paid-in Capital to reflect the impact of an imposition of 20% management fee on committed capital.
