Venture Capital Performance Declines Slightly as of 2Q2008

Thomson Reuters and National Venture Capital Association

November 2008

 

Venture capital performance showed positive returns across all investment horizons ending 30 June 2008, according to Thomson Reuters and the National Venture Capital Association (NVCA).

The one-year all venture private equity performance index (PEPI) showed the greatest change from 1Q2008, falling 8.2% to 5.1% in 2Q2008. Historically, short-term horizons show significant fluctuations quarter–over-quarter based on current exit market conditions. Overall, the closed IPO window in the second quarter did drive lower one-year return numbers. The next largest consecutive quarterly change occurred in the three-year time horizon where all venture PEPI decreased by 1.1% quarter-over-quarter. Five-year and ten-year performance also posted modest declines from the previous quarter, decreasing 0.2% and 0.6% percentage respectively. Twenty-year performance figures showed a small quarter-over-quarter increase to 16.9% from 16.8% in the first quarter.

“We have yet to see the full impact of the capital markets crisis in the venture capital performance numbers,” said Mark Heesen, president of the NVCA. “We will likely begin to see pressure on both short and long term returns in the next several years as the highly prosperous years of 1998 and 1999 fall out of the ten-year numbers and are replaced with most recent years when the IPO window has been sealed shut.”

Venture returns across all horizons outperformed public market indices, NASDAQ and the S&P 500, through 30 June 2008.
