Core portfolio thriving

Tern hosted an investor presentation and Q&A session on 26 March. Each of the four presentations from the portfolio companies highlighted increased commercial traction, with configuration work turning to repeat licencing through the SaaS models, a growing high-profile customer base and important strategic partnerships. The presentations reinforced the chairman’s statement that Tern has created, and continues to support, a portfolio of businesses where 80% are not just surviving but thriving, compared with the industry venture capital norm of a 40% success rate. Operating costs have been cut by 40% but Tern remains focused on supporting the companies to grow, which ultimately should create significant shareholder value when there is a liquidity event.
