What is the Tern model?
I thought it would be helpful to start by briefly setting out the Tern model and what we are doing to increase the portfolio value for our shareholders.
Over the past eight years Tern has transitioned from acquiring over 100% of a company (e.g., Cryptosoft) to a model that has the risk characteristics of a Private Equity Fund and the aggressive returns model of a Venture Capital Fund. Our model is a hybrid of how VC and PE funds operate overlaid by the fact that we are a public company.
How does the Tern model compare to VC and PE models?
As with the Tern model, both VC and PE models vigorously protect the performance data of their specific investments and report in the aggregate, key metrics to their limited partners.
