What is Exor Net Asset Value? How do you calculate it?

Net Asset Value (NAV) corresponds to the total value of assets net of the Gross Debt of the Exor holdings system as defined below. 

In determining the total value of assets, listed equity investments and other securities are valued at official market trading prices, unlisted equity investments are valued at fair value, determined annually by independent experts, and unlisted other investments (funds and similar instruments) are valued by reference to the most recent available fair value. 

Treasury shares are valued at the official stock exchange price, except for the part designated to service stock option plans (measured at the option exercise price under the plan if this is less than the stock exchange price).

The sum of the aforesaid values constitutes the total value of assets (Gross Asset Value). Gross Debt corresponds to the total amount of the financial debt of the Holdings System.

Net Asset Value (NAV) is presented with the aim of aiding financial analysts and investors in forming their own assessments.

Please refer to Net Asset Value for more information.
