#### Example: Calculating Management Fees, Carried Interest, NAV, DPI, RVPI, and TVPI Calculation

Consider the following information:

• Management fee: 2%
• Carried interest: 20%
• Committed capital: 200
• The first total return method is applied.

All amounts are given in $millions. Calculate: 1. Management fees. 2. Carried interest. 3. NAV before distributions. 4. NAV after distributions. 5. Distributed to paid in (DPI). 6. Residual value to paid-in (RVPI). 7. Total value to paid-in (TVPI). $$\small{\begin{array}{c|c|c|c|c|c}\textbf{Year}&{\textbf{Capital Called Down}\\ }&{\textbf{Paid-in Capital}\\ }&{\textbf{Management Fees}\\ }&{\textbf{Operating Results}\\}&{\textbf{NAV Before Distributions}\\ }&{\textbf{Carried Interest}\\}&{\textbf{Distributions}\\}&{\textbf{NAV After Distributions}\\}\\ \hline\text{2015} & 80 & 80 & 1.6 & -8 & 70.4&0&&70.4 \\ \hline \text{2016} & 25 & 105 & 2.1 & -24 & 69.3&0&&69.3 \\ \hline \text{2017} & 20 & 125 & 2.5 & 41 & 127.8&0&&127.8 \\ \hline\text{2018} & 40 & 165 & 3.3 & 73 & 237.5&7.5&40&190\\ \hline \text{2019} & 25& 190& 3.8& 89 & 300.2&12.5&75&212.7 \\ \hline\text{2020} & 10 &200 &4 & 170 & 388.7&17.7&125&246\\ \end{array}}$$ #### Solution Paid-in capital is the cumulative total of all capital called down. $$\text{Paid-in capital in 2017}=80+25+20=125 \text{ million}$$ #### Management Fees $$\text{Management fees}=\text{Management fee (%)}\times \text{Paid-in capital for each year.}$$ For 2020, management fee is $$2\text{%}\times 200 \text{ million} = 4 \text{ million}$$. Carried interest is paid when the NAV before distributions is greater than the committed capital. In 2018, the NAV before distributions exceeded the committed capital for the first time and was calculated as follows: $$\text{2018 carried interest}=20\text{%}\times(237.5-200)=7.5 \text{ million}$$ In subsequent years, it is calculated using the increase in the NAV before distributions as follows: $$\text{2019 carried interest}=20\text{%}\times(300.2-237.5)=12.5 \text{ million}$$ $$\text{NAV before distributions =NAV after distribution in prior years+Capital called down}-\text{Management fees+Operating results}$$ $$\text{NAV after distribution in 2018}=(127.8+40-3.3+73)=237.50 \text{ million}$$ $$\text{NAV after distributions =NAV before distribution}-\text{Carried interest}-\text{Distributions}$$ E.g.. $$\text{NAV after distribution in 2018}=(237.5-7.5-40)=190 \text{ million}$$ #### DPI Multiple $$\text{DPI}=\frac{\text{Cumulative distributions pasid to the LPs}}{\text{Cumulative capital invested}}=\frac{(40+75+125)}{200}=1.2X$$ #### RVPI Multiple $$\text{RVPI}=\frac{\text{Value of LP’ s holdings in the fund}}{\text{Cumulative capital invested}}=\frac{246}{200}=1.23X$$ The NAV after distributions is the net non-distributed value of the fund. #### TVPI Multiple $$\text{TVPI}=\text{DPI}+\text{RVPI}= 1.2+1.23=2.43X$$ ## Question Gatsby LTD is interested in verifying carried interest, management fees, and the NAV of EVP. The following information is provided about yearly capital class, annual distribution, and operating results. • Management fee: 3% • Carried Interest: 15% • Committed cap: 105 $$\small{\begin{array}{l|c|c|c}\textbf{Calls, Operating Results, and Distributions (Millions)}&{\textbf{}\\ }&{\textbf{}\\ }&{\textbf{}\\ }&{\textbf{}\\}\\ \hline & \bf{2011}& \bf{2012}& \bf{2013}& \bf{2014} \\ \hline\textbf{Called down} & 40 & 20 & 15 & 30 \\ \hline \textbf{Realized Results} & 0 & 5 & 15& 20 \\ \hline \textbf{Unrealized Results} & -2 & -5 & 10& 15 \\ \hline\textbf{Distributions} & 0 & 0 & 15 & 35 \end{array}}$$ The carried interest in 2012 is closest to: 1.$0.
2. $7,440,00. 3.$7.44.

#### Solution

$$\small{\begin{array}{l|c|c|c|c|c|c}\textbf{Year}&{\textbf{Capital Called Down}\\ }&{\textbf{Paid-in Capital}\\ }&{\textbf{Management Fees}\\ }&{\textbf{Operating Results}\\}&{\textbf{NAV Before Distributions}\\ }&{\textbf{Carried Interest}\\}&{\textbf{Distributions}\\}&{\textbf{NAV After Distributions}\\}\\ \hline\text{2011} & 40 & 40 & 1.2 & -2 & 36.8&0&&36.8 \\ \hline \text{2012} & 20 & 60 & 1.8& 0& 55&0&&55 \\ \hline \text{2013} & 15 & 75 & 2.25& 25 & 92.75&0&15&77.75 \\ \hline\text{2014} & 20 & 105 & 3.15 & 35 & 154.6&7.44&35&112.16 \end{array}}$$

In 2012 the carried interest was 0 because interest is only paid when NAV before distribution is more than the committed cap of 105.

B is incorrect. This is the credit interest of the year 2014.

C is incorrect. \$7.44 should be expressed in millions since the entire calculation is in millions.

I have finished my FRM1 thanks to AnalystPrep. And now using AnalystPrep for my FRM2 preparation. Professor Forjan is brilliant. He gives such good explanations and analogies. And more than anything makes learning fun. A big thank you to Analystprep and Professor Forjan. 5 stars all the way! michael walshe

Professor James' videos are excellent for understanding the underlying theories behind financial engineering / financial analysis. The AnalystPrep videos were better than any of the others that I searched through on YouTube for providing a clear explanation of some concepts, such as Portfolio theory, CAPM, and Arbitrage Pricing theory. Watching these cleared up many of the unclarities I had in my head. Highly recommended. Nyka Smith
