Monthly update SCFI February 2024

Scandinavian Credit Fund I AB (publ) reports a NAV rate for February of NAV 72.71. It is down by 0.85%.  

No new lending took place either to external borrowers or to the majority-owned companies during February. 

During February, the fund closed the remaining currency hedges. This means that the fund lowers the running costs. Volatility in the fund's NAV will increase somewhat in the future, depending on the development of the Swedish krona. The fund has, in descending order, assets in USD, NOK, EUR, GBP and DKK. During February, the Swedish krona strengthened against all these currencies and the NAV was negatively affected by SEK 11 million, corresponding to 0.56%. 

During February, a loan of approximately SEK 10 million was amortized in line with NAV.  

Cash and cash equivalents increased from 5% of NAV at the end of January to 6% at the end of February. 

During February, the fund assessed that a claim of SEK 9 million has no value and it has therefore been written off.

Pledged assets 
The three majority-owned companies managed without liquidity additions during February and the assessment is that they will also do so during March. The fund works in close collaboration with the respective company management to develop the businesses and thereby increase their value. 

In Global Scanning, a new CEO was appointed and a new position, Chief Operating Officer, was established. This is to improve operational operations and create additional opportunities for increased growth. The company has developed positively so far this year, with both sales and profit above last year's. 

Three of the cottages in Björnrike have now been sold and there will therefore not be a need for further lifting to finance the operation. A cabin is now fully equipped for rent via Skistar. The fund will evaluate the rental income to assess whether more cabins should be equipped for rental. The sale takes place via Idetfjallby | Mountain cabins in Björnrike/Vemdalen. The rental takes place via MOSIPPEVÄGEN 3A, VFM03A – Björnrike – Vemdalen ( Read more at

The distribution of the portfolio
The distribution of the portfolio regarding the mortgaged assets looks according to the table below. The rest of the portfolio is loans that have not been mortgaged and are running as before. It is important to point out that the pledged assets consist of companies in category 1-3, i.e. category 1 are companies that pay their interest and amortization according to agreements and here are the largest holdings.

Management strategy
The fund works actively to manage and refine the assets. Hans Westerberg is now chairman of the board of the three shareholdings. What these companies have in common is to lower the cost mass to get a lower break-even level and thus become less sensitive to loss of revenue. 

The fund receives many questions regarding when the next repayment will take place. The fund now assesses that no repayment will take place during Q1 2024. The fund will return when repayment becomes relevant. 

Repayments are made via Euroclear as repayment of capital. No withholding tax is therefore deducted. Taxation of the shares is done according to current taxation rules, depending on which form of savings was used. The fund cannot answer questions regarding taxation as the fund does not have insight into individual investors' savings, but it is a matter between the investor and its advisors and custodian institutions. 

Repayment takes place when the fund has accumulated enough cash for the repayment to be meaningful. This is because the repayments are associated with administrative work and costs.  

The record date for repayments will henceforth take place on the same day as the monthly NAV, i.e. the last day of the month and published on the first working day of the month. The refund is made five working days later. More information about the payment is communicated on the Fund's website:
