Hi and welcome back to our regular early morning look at personal companies, public markets and the gray area in between.
Today we’re digging into SoftBank’s most current earnings slides. Not just do they include a wealth of updates and other useful info, however a few of them are gosh-darn-freaking amusing. All of us should have a little bit of levity after the last couple of months.
The visual aspects we estimate below come from SoftBank’s reporting of its own arise from its fiscal year ending March 31, 2020. Much of the deck is comprised of monetary reporting tables and other littles things you do not wish to read. We have actually cut all that out and left the fun parts.
Prior to we dive in, please note that we are mostly laughing at some slide design choices and just rather at the outcomes themselves. We are certainly not making fun of people who have actually been affected by layoffs and other such things that these slides’ results include.

Sure, this post will inform you things like the fact that there are 88 business in the Vision Fund portfolio, and that when it comes to unrealized gains and losses, the portfolio has actually seen $13.4 billion in gains and $14.2 billion in losses. $4.9 billion of gains have actually been realized, mind you, while simply $200 million of losses have actually had the exact same honor.
And this post will tell you that the “net mixed [internal rate of return] for SoftBank Vision Fund investors is -1%.”
Hell, you probably likewise would like to know that Uber was detailed as Vision Fund’s worst-performing public company, generating a $1.46 billion loss for the group. On the other hand, Guardant Health benefits a $1.67 billion gain, while 2019 IPO Slack has actually benefited $605 million in profits. Those were the two best business in the Vision Fund’s public portfolio.
But what you truly desire is the excellent stuff. So, shared by slide number, here you go:
