180 Degree Capital Corp. Reports +14.2% Growth in Q1 2021, $10.60 Net Asset Value Per Share as of March 31, 2021, and Developments From Q2 2021

Montclair, NJ | Posted on May 11th, 2021

“I am pleased to report continued growth in our net asset value per share (NAV) as of March 31, 2021, to $10.60, the highest level in over six years,” said Kevin M. Rendino, Chief Executive Officer of 180. “This growth was powered by our continued strong performance in our public market investment strategy that generated a gross total return of +28.3% in the first quarter of 2021.1 Our separately managed account (SMA) had strong performance as well, generating a gross total return of +20.7%. If this were the end of 2021, we would generate approximately $2 million in carried interest from the SMA, and net performance for the SMA would be 14.5%.2 I remind investors that this potential carried interest is not included in our reported NAV as of the end of the first quarter of 2021. We ended the quarter with approximately $114 million in assets under management in aggregate in 180 and our SMA, available to be deployed in our public market investment strategy. I am proud of this 5.5x increase in scale we have built at 180 since starting in 2017. We continue to believe our Graham and Dodd investment philosophy, coupled with our activist approach, will lead to enhanced shareholder value creation for all of our TURN shareholders.”

“Q2 2021 has started off positive for 180 and our SMA,” added Daniel B. Wolfe, President of 180. As of May 10, 2021, 180’s cash3 and securities of publicly traded companies increased to approximately $77.0 million, or $7.42 per share, and our SMA increased to approximately $41.5 million in asset value. These increases bring our current assets to be deployed in our public market investment strategy to approximately $118.5 million. We remind investors that it remains too early to know where 180’s NAV and the net assets of our SMA will end up as of the end of Q2 2021 or the end of 2021.”

The table below summarizes 180’s performance over periods of time through the end of Q1 2021:
