“We sold our remaining investment in Teladoc Health, Inc., one of our most successful investments ever. Our view was that the company’s valuation felt a bit extended, and its market capitalization at over $19 billion was too large for the Fund to hold. Moreover, we believe that, on a pro-forma basis, the market cap will be around $40 billion after its recent bid to merge with Livongo Health, Inc., a transaction expected to be completed in the fourth quarter. We hold Teladoc’s management in the highest regard and admire the incredible company it has built over the last few years.”
