DURBAN - PROSUS shares rose more than 5 percent on the JSE on Friday after the Dutch technology giant said it intended to buy back up to $5 billion (about R81bn) in its own and Naspers’ shares, in an effort to reduce the discount between the companies’ share prices and their underlying assets. The decision around index inclusion is usually in September, but can happen earlier if one an existing Euro Stoxx 50 member disappears through corporate action.

Basil Sgourdos, CFO of Prosus and Naspers, comments: “Over the years, our group has achieved improved financial flexibility. Prosus shares closed 2.97 percent up at R1 626.93, while Naspers shares closed 3.98 percent higher at R3 152.32.

It is expected that the Naspers shares acquired will be held in treasury and will thus be excluded from Naspers per share financial metrics. It’s hard to apply much from a fundamental perspective to predict where this discount should be and hence where it goes from here.

Prosus said it intended to buy back up to $1.37bn of its own shares and up to $3.63bn of Naspers shares after the release of its half-year results, which were expected on November 23. The purchase of Naspers and Prosus shares also represents a meaningful investment in the group’s strong Internet portfolio, says Prosus, adding that it is regarded as a good use of capital, given full market valuations evident in consumer Internet mergers and acquisitions (M&A) and the group’s sizeable consolidated discount to net-asset-value (NAV). Prosus and Naspers chief executive Bob van Dijk said they had found several large merger and acquisitions opportunities in their sector to be fully priced and had stayed disciplined.

“A direct investment in Tencent gives you a small yield and the ability to redeploy capital elsewhere.

Prosus intends not to vote the Naspers shares acquired. SA investors being forced sellers of Naspers might explain why the discount has widened recently for Naspers, but what we find interesting is that Prosus has seen a similar widening in its discount and does not have the same problem. In total, up to $5 billion in shares in Naspers and Prosus will be purchased on the open market on a pro-rata (72.5%/27.5%) basis in line with the economic stakes of both companies in the Prosus/Naspers asset base.

“Utilising cash to own more of our current portfolio through a purchase of our own shares – when the discount to net asset value (NAV) is sizeable – is a sensible use of capital,” Van Dijk said.
