  • 25 Top-down Approach Value / Growth Risk Mitigation Cash AFC Asia Frontier Fund CONFIDENTIAL INVESTMENT STRATEGY
  • • Invest in target countries large cap and liquid stocks (core portfolio) and mid- to small caps (satellite portfolio) • Focus on free cash flow, growth potential and undervalued stocks as key drivers for returns • Top – Down Approach  Strategic country and currency allocation • Combination of Value and Growth  Gain exposure to domestic and structural growth by investing in companies with sound business performance and management, coupled with good expansion strategies  Company visits and research (primary and secondary) either by the fund manager or team members 26 CONFIDENTIALAFC Asia Frontier Fund INVESTMENT STRATEGY
  • Vinasun (Vietnam Sun Corp), Bloomberg Code: VNS VN • Vinasun is the largest taxi operator in Vietnam with a market share of 42% in Ho Chi Minh City and a fleet size of ~4,000 taxis. • Recently, the company has entered into new cities such as Dong Nai and Binh Duong where it is the market leader. VNS is further expanding into new cities such as Nha Trang and Can Tho and could also be looking at smaller acquisitions to gain market share. • Vinasun’s competitive advantage is the ease of access to its taxis through a 24 hour call centre as well as online and on the ground presence at airports, hotels and commercial centres which reduces waiting time relative to competition. • Increasing urbanisation is a demand driver for taxi services with urban population at 32% of total population in 2012 as compared to 26% in 2002 • Revenue and net income have grown at a CAGR of 26.8% and 22.1% respectively between 2008 and 2012 • 2012 Return on Equity at 18.4%, operating margin of 10.9% and not heavily levered with net debt of 0.6x and EBITDA/Interest expense of 5.2x • Currently valued at a 2013 Forward P/E of 9.9x and a P/B of 1.7x. Similar peer, Indonesia based Express Transindo (TAXI IJ) trades at 2013 Forward P/E of 29.6x and a P/B of 5.3x • With further growth in fleet size and profits we expect Vinasun to achieve comparable valuations to its regional peers which leaves room for further upside 27 CONFIDENTIALAFC Asia Frontier Fund INVESTMENT STRATEGY – GROWTH PICK
  • United Motors Lanka PLC, Bloomberg Code: UML SL • The leading auto industry distributor in Sri Lanka with a strategic network across the country • UML is the sole distributor in Sri Lanka for • Mitsubishi passenger vehicles from Japan • Fuso commercial vehicles from Japan • TVS Motors two and three wheelers from India • Perodua compact cars from Malaysia • JMC commercial vehicles from China • Zotye compact SUV’s from China • Yokohama Tyres from Japan • Valvoline Lubricants from USA • Revenues and net income for the company have grown at a CAGR of 16.2% and 30.7% respectively between FY2008 and FY2013 • 2013 Return on Equity at 30.5%, operating margin of 14.7% and unlevered balance sheet with minimal debt • Currently valued very attractively at 3.7x Trailing 12 Months P/E and at a P/B of 1.0x • The fund entered this stock when valuations were even more compelling with a P/E of 1.97x and P/B of 0.77x • The stock has appreciated by 68% since purchase but we believe it is still attractively valued given the growth prospects for the Sri Lankan economy and it also offers a dividend yield of 8.7%. 28 CONFIDENTIALAFC Asia Frontier Fund INVESTMENT STRATEGY – VALUE PICK
  • 29 CONFIDENTIAL Country/Sector Approach In addition to AFC Frontier Fund’s core investment themes (Consumption, Infrastructure, and Financials), the fund is also targeting country-specific sectors that are poised for rapid growth  Agriculture in Cambodia, Laos, Myanmar and Vietnam  Textiles in Bangladesh and Pakistan  Travel & Tourism in Cambodia and Sri Lanka  Power generation in Laos  Energy in Iraq and Papua New Guinea  Mining in Mongolia and Papua New Guinea AFC Asia Frontier Fund INVESTMENT STRATEGY
  • 30 CONFIDENTIALAFC Asia Frontier Fund ASIAN FRONTIER THEME – CONSUMER STOCKS AFC Asia Frontier Fund’s key sector allocation – Consumer Stocks Why we like Consumer Stocks: • Demographics of Frontier Markets – Young Population • Increasing disposable income will shift demand for consumer goods • Attractive valuations, free cash flow generation, consistent earnings growth and dividend payout • Is not subject to political interference or heavy government regulation unlike other industries such as Utilities or Infrastructure • Professional Management as these firms compete with Multi National Companies • Not as significantly impacted by political and social issues • Asian Consumer companies could be attractive acquisition/investment targets; Heineken acquired Asia Pacific Breweries at a P/E ratio of 38.0x, KKR invested US$ 359 million into Vietnam based Masan Group at 44.0x earnings

  • 32 CONFIDENTIAL Risk Mitigation  Focus on earnings growth, free cash flow and value as the key driver for high returns  In-depth due diligence of investment opportunities  Diversify across sectors and countries to reduce non systematic risk  Avoid investing in countries / currencies / sectors of which we strategically disapprove  No leverage Cash  Not fully invested in uncertain times and/or excessive valuations  Holding cash will allow the fund to take advantage of opportunistic investments when they arise (momentum / news driven) AFC Asia Frontier Fund INVESTMENT STRATEGY
