6 Annual Report P. 3/159 A word from our Chairman and CEO Difficult circumstances stimulate creativity, the driver of all growth. After two years of financial and economic crisis, the investment market is reviving and gathering speed. With its solid capital base, conservative investment policy and longterm investment horizon, Gimv has withstood the financial and economic crisis. It has also guided its portfolio companies some of them in hardhit sectors relatively unscathed through this difficult period. In the words of a wellknown Chinese proverb, Gimv has converted the crisis into an opportunity. It comes out of the crisis with strong resources, ready to invest in growing industries of the future, and in companies with profitable niche positions in traditional sectors. By contributing to the success of our portfolio companies, we secure our own progress and the creation of value for our shareholders. Growthoriented culture in an international network Gimv continues to partner with promising businesses both in Europe and wider afield. In Europe, the French private equity market grew faster last year than elsewhere. Our Paris office did a number of attractive deals, such as Inside Secure, Private Outlet, Onedirect and Brunel. Gimv also made a number of attractive investments in Belgium, the Netherlands and Germany, including RES Software, Square Melon, McPhy Energy and PE International. The crisis years have led Gimv to pay growing attention to being adequately diversified in terms of geography and end markets. Looking for growth, both Gimv and its portfolio companies are keen to move into new areas, and in particular the increasingly important Asian growth market. Barco, Punch Powertrain, VCST and Eden Chocolates among others have set foot in China. In particular through its Gimv Asia Advisory Council (GAAC), Gimv is proving its value as a provider of advice to our companies that see the Asian market as growth potential. Careful selection criteria remain essential in deciding whether or not to make an investment. In certain transactions price expectations are too high. But high prices also provide exit opportunities, as is clearly the case right now in Venture Capital. The considerable interest shown by industrial partners in innovative companies has enabled us to divest a number of shareholdings over the past year at attractive prices. These include Plexxikon, Movetis, Liquavista and CoreOptics from our Venture Capital portfolio, as well as ANP and Scana Noliko in Buyouts & Growth.
7 Annual Report P. 4/159 Funds up to speed Despite the difficult economic and financial times, Gimv has raised more than EUR 600 million from institutional investors for Gimvmanaged coinvestment funds. In the hands of specialised teams, supported by Gimv's extensive knowledge network, these funds create good opportunities for future investments in highpotential areas. In 2010 we successfully launched the GimvAgri+ Investment Fund and DG Infra Yield, in conjunction with leading Belgian financial players. Both funds have got off to a flying start: GimvAgri+ has invested growth capital in Belgian company Eden Chocolates and DG Infra Yield has invested in the Belwind wind farm off the coast of Zeebrugge. The other two main coinvestment funds, GimvXL and DG Infra+ are up to cruising speed. DG Infra+ has some highly promising projects on the table, which will strengthen its market position. GimvXL is keen to invest in Flemish growth stories, as demonstrated by its recent decision to invest in PinguinLutosa, one of the largest vegetable processors in Europe. "Powering companies for growth: the central theme of all our activities." Attractive profit growth Our conclusion on FY is unambiguous. Gimv achieved a good result. First because of the number of successful divestments, with realised capital gains providing nearly half our net profit, and second thanks to the better operating results reported by the majority of our portfolio companies, which has a knockon effect on their portfolio value. The gross return on our portfolio was a very creditable 23.5 percent. This global result, together with our strong cash position, means that we can sustain our internal growth, that we can continue building a diversified portfolio and that we can maintain our existing dividend policy. It is right to thank our investors here for the confidence they have placed in us over the last year. And to ensure them of our ambition and commitment to continue to shape Gimv with unreduced momentum and the same growthoriented approach. Herman Daems and Koen Dejonckheere

16 Annual Report P. 13/159 Results and key figures Net profit of EUR million For FY Gimv posted a net profit of EUR million. This is 15 percent higher than the previous net profit of EUR million. This result is mainly determined by the gains on disposal of a number of portfolio companies. The rest of the portfolio also grew nicely in value, with the continuing recovery of these companies' results and the increased share prices of a number of listed companies. Realised net capital gains during FY amounted to EUR 75.8 million. These capital gains come mainly from the Venture Capital activities (EUR 54.9 million). Another EUR 17.6 million derive from the Buyouts & Growth activities and the remaining EUR 3.3 million from the coinvestment funds. Besides an attractive profit, Gimv also achieved an aboveaverage return on equity. Unrealised net capital gains totalled EUR 57.8 million. These gains came entirely from the Buyouts & Growth activities: EUR 74.2 million, partly offset by negative contributions of EUR 15.2 million from the Venture Capital activities and EUR 1.3 million from the coinvestment funds. The net unrealised capital gains are a direct consequence of the application of the prevailing international private equity valuation rules. You can find a breakdown of the investment portfolio per valuation method and details of the unrealised capital gains and losses further on. For more information on our valuation methodologies, take a look at point 5 of the statutory consolidations. The other operating result for FY came out at EUR 3.8 million and the net financial result for the financial year is EUR 5.0 million positive. Hence, after deducting taxes (EUR 2.8 million) and noncontrolling interests (EUR 4.3 million), Gimv realised for the financial year a net profit of EUR million. Investment pace maintained In FY , Gimv invested a total of EUR million on balance sheet. Another EUR 20.0 million was invested (third party share) by funds managed by Gimv. The main investments by business unit during the past financial year were in Acertys, Square Melon (Bananas) and Eden Chocolates (Buyouts & Growth Belgium), BMC (Buyouts & Growth Netherlands), and Onedirect and Brunel (Buyouts & Growth France). During this same period Technology invested in, among others, Inside Secure, Luma, Private Outlet, RES Software, Ubidyne and Virtensys. Life Sciences invested in Ceres and Devgen. McPhy Energy and PE International were the major investments in Cleantech. There were also the investments in DataContact (CEE), Belwind (DG Infra Yield) and the increase in the shareholding in listed Scandinavian fund manager Capman. Continued strong interest from industrial buyers In FY , Gimv sold among others its shareholdings in ADA Cosmetics, ANP, Claymount, CoreOptics, Liquavista, Microtherm, Mondi Foods, Movetis, Nuance Technologies, Plexxikon, Polymer Insulation Products (PIP), Prolyte, Psytechnics, Santhera Pharmaceuticals, Thrombogenics and 3Mensio. In all Gimv divested for an amount of EUR million. On top of this come another EUR 19.9 million of divestments by the coinvestment funds (third party share). On 31 March 2010 these divestments represented a total value of EUR 59.1 million. In addition the divestments in generated EUR 3.0 million of dividends, interest and management fees. This means that these divestments produced a total of EUR million, or percent (EUR 74.6 million) more than their carrying value at 31 March 2010 (valued at fair value in the limited consolidation) and 55.5 percent (EUR 47.7 million) above their original acquisition cost of EUR 86.0 million, or a multiple of approximately 1.6x.
17 Annual Report P. 14/159 Solid balance sheet The balance sheet total amounted at 31 March 2011 to EUR million. The portfolio is valued at EUR million compared with EUR million at 31 March 2010 (+ 24 percent). Gimv's net cash position at 31 March 2011 was EUR million compared with EUR million at 31 March The decrease is mainly due to the payment of the dividend for FY (EUR 55.6 million), to the excess of investments (EUR million) over divestments (EUR million), and the fact that the proceeds of a number of major divestments were received only after the financial year end. Equity (= net asset value) amounted at 31 March 2011 to EUR million (EUR per share), compared with EUR million (EUR per share) at 31 March 2010 (both figures prior to dividend payment). The increase in equity during FY , plus the dividends of EUR 55.6 million paid out during the financial year, represent a return on equity for the financial year of 13.2 percent, which is slightly above Gimv's longterm return. HIGHLIGHT EUR million investments (incl. funds under management) EUR million divestments (incl. funds under management) Portfolio value amounts to EUR million Net cash position of EUR million Equity rises further to EUR million or EUR per share Gross dividend rises to EUR 2.45 per share (EUR 1.84 net)

21 Annual Report P. 18/159 Buyouts & Growth With its many years of experience, Buyouts & Growth is a major player in the private equity market. The team has a detailed knowledge of local markets and it can rely on a regional presence with offices in Belgium, the Netherlands and France and an extensive international network of expertise. Buyouts & Growth investment focus family businesses with succession issues; financial shareholders seeking liquidity; companies wishing to divest assets or divisions; companies needing fresh capital to accelerate their growth. small to mediumsized companies in varying sectors with enterprise values of up to EUR 125 million; investments from EUR 5 million to 100 million; minority or majority shareholdings; equity and mezzanine instruments.
22 Annual Report P. 19/159 Growth with a solid investor With its ability to commit longterm with its own funds, Gimv presents itself to potential portfolio companies as a solid investor and an ideal partner in the development of growth strategies. Two examples that illustrate this are De Groot International and Onedirect. Over a period of 50 years, De Groot International has grown from small fruit trader to an international importer, distributor and exporter of fruit and vegetables. Gimv entered the company in 2005 and since then has supported its international expansion. During this period De Groot International has undertaken five successful acquisitions. Onedirect is a European B2B etrading specialist in telephony equipment. Gimv believes in the growth potential of this niche player. The fact that Gimv has its own international network and its own expertise in the online environment enhances Onedirect's growth prospects. Network of capital, knowledge and skills Gimv is a reliable and experienced coach and a strategic advisor for checking insights both formally and informally. In short, it is much more than a provider of capital. On the basis of this vision the buyout team is composed of people with financial, strategic and operational backgrounds. Each complements the other so that the whole is greater than the sum of its parts. This is reinforced by the use of industry partners. They act as a sounding board for the portfolio companies and provide advice to management where requested. Bringing people together creates added value. Therefore Gimv attaches great importance to this exchange of ideas and tries to bring all those involved into regular contact with each other. Automotive industry supplier VCST is a perfect example. In 2009, Gimv took the initiative of restructuring this company's debt, allowing VCST to once again focus on growth. As a result at the end of 2011 the company will be opening a new facility in growth market China. In the process, VCST received advice from sector colleague Punch Powertrain, another Gimv portfolio company which has already been operating for some time in China. Across all borders International, multidisciplinary and local presence are three key concepts which make Gimv unique. This is proven by companies like Easyvoyage and XDC. Gimv's international operating context, its knowledge of markets and local situations, plus interaction between the venture capital and the buyout teams put Gimv well ahead of the competition. RELATED Gimv helps Scana Noliko grow by 60 percent Scana Noliko is a private label manufacturer of canned and bottled fruit and vegetables, pasta and sauces. Gimv entered the company in Between the time of entry and the planned exit, the company's sales and cash flow have grown by 60 percent. Scana Noliko's success is a shared success, made possible by the dedication of its management team and the involvement of Gimv as both investor and experienced coach. Scana Noliko used Gimv's expertise in taking over the fruit operations of Bonduelle. Gimv's planned exit from Scana Noliko one of the largest Buyouts & Growth portfolio companies will provide significant added value to its shareholders.

30 Annual Report P. 27/159 Venture Capital Venture capital is of vital importance for companies active in sectors as technology, life sciences and cleantech. Gimv is a solid partner in these areas, offering promising companies resources for developing and marketing their groundbreaking products and technologies. Venture Capital investment focus young firms with strong growth ambitions and established companies looking for fresh capital; companies operating in technology, cleantech and life sciences; investments from EUR 0.5 million to 25 million; focus on Europe; preferably investment round leader.
31 Annual Report P. 28/159 PanEuropean player Internationalisation is very important for companies in these sectors of the future. It is equally important for venture capital providers. Gimv more than fulfills this requirement with offices in Belgium, the Netherlands, France and Germany, a dedicated team consisting of five different nationalities and portfolio companies with offices in ten countries. All this makes Gimv Venture Capital a key paneuropean player. Expertise The multidisciplinary nature of the teams, each with its own focus and expertise in specific areas like agribusiness, biotech, cleantech, telecoms, internet, software and electronics, is invaluable. The venture capital team consists of a mix of experienced professionals with technological and financial backgrounds, complemented by a network of entrepreneurs, industry experts and other international venture capitalists as coinvestors Synergy between the various teams, including Buyouts & Growth, often reveals into unsuspected veins of added value. Examples of this are Made in Design and XDC. Partner of companies Gimv invests people and resources into its portfolio companies. The investment managers bring their accumulated expertise, experience and knowledge to the portfolio company. In this way Gimv goes beyond its role as financier. By serving on the board of portfolio companies, Venture Capital can contribute to strong business plans and help design strategies for growth, but without stepping in management's shoes. Solid investor As an independent investment company Gimv presents itself as a stable and longterm partner. This strategy, coupled with its financial strength and flexibility as an investor, is clearly reflected in the investment in Inside Secure. In 2010 Gimv doubled its stake in this French technology company, which is the market leader in contactless smart cards for secure transactions. Gimv has been a shareholder in this company for more than 13 years and made extra capital available to enable the company to realise its buyandbuild strategy. Gimv's expertise ensured the smooth acquisition of Atmel Corporation's Secure Microcontroller Solutions division. Track record Since its inception in 1980, Venture Capital has had a successful track record and it has created considerable added value. In recent years, the team has brought 16 companies to the stock market and carried out many exits. IPOs and exits include Movetis, Telenet, Devgen, Mobistar, Business Architects, Filepool and, recently, Plexxikon. RELATED Plexxikon exit delivers high added value In March 2011 Plexxikon was sold to Japan's Daiichi Sankyo for USD 805 million. Subsequent milestones may provide an additional USD 130 million. With this sale, Venture Capital adds a new successful dossier to its CV. It provides considerable added value for shareholders. In 2002 Gimv was the only European investment company that took a capital holding, together with an international group of biotech investors, in US company Plexxikon. This company has since risen to market leader in the development of small molecule pharmaceuticals.
