Guernsey, Channel Islands, November 16, 2006 KKR Private Equity Investors, L.P.

    (Euronext Amsterdam: KPE), a Guernsey limited partnership that invests its assets primarily in private equity investments sponsored by Kohlberg Kravis Roberts & Co. L.P. (―KKR‖), today reported its financial results for the quarterly period ended September 30,

    2006. KPE commenced operations on May 10, 2006 with $4,830.1 million of investable capital, which has grown to $4,959.4 million in net asset value (―NAV‖) as of September 30, 2006.

    KPE invests its capital as the sole limited partner of KKR PEI Investments, L.P. (the ―Investment Partnership‖). As of November 10, 2006, investments and investment commitments totaled $3.6 billion, excluding temporary investments.

Henry R. Kravis, Co-Founder of KKR and Co-Chairman of KPE’s Managing General

    Partner’s Board of Directors, commented, ―Since our initial offering six months ago, we are pleased with both the pace and quality of the investments we have made and have committed to make. We continue to see many large and attractive investment opportunities on a global basis."

Results of Operations

    As of September 30, 2006, KPE’s NAV per unit was $24.25 compared to $23.77 at June 30, 2006 and $23.61 immediately subsequent to the initial offering of KPE’s common units and related transactions. On an annualized basis, KPE’s total return for the quarter

    period ended September 30, 2006 was 8.0 percent and for the period from the date of commencement of operations, on May 10, 2006, to September 30, 2006 was 6.9 percent.

    The Investment Partnership reported an increase in net assets resulting from operations of $100.6 million and $132.1 million during the quarter and year-to-date periods ended September 30, 2006, respectively, due to interest income on cash management activities and unrealized appreciation on investments, primarily related to opportunistic investments.


    As of September 30, 2006, the Investment Partnership held $3.6 billion of temporary investments and the portfolio of the Investment Partnership consisted of investments totaling $1.3 billion, as follows:

    ; Co-investments of $585.0 million in portfolio companies of KKR-sponsored

    private equity funds, as follows:

    - a $250.0 million co-investment in NXP B.V., the semiconductors business

    formerly of Royal Philips Electronics;

    - a $200.0 million co-investment in VNU Group B.V., a global information

    and media company; and

    - a $135.0 million co-investment in Capmark Financial Group Inc., a

    leading commercial real estate finance company.

    ; Investments of $499.3 million in KKR-sponsored private equity funds:

    - $281.1 million in KKR European Fund, Limited Partnership;

    - $155.3 million in KKR Millennium Fund L.P.;

    - $35.2 million in KKR European Fund II, Limited Partnership; and

    - $27.7 million in KKR 2006 Fund L.P.

    ; Opportunistic investments of $235.4 million in publicly traded securities.

    Subsequent to September 30, 2006 and through November 10, 2006, the Investment Partnership made additional investments, which totaled $121.8 million, consisting of the following:

    ; An investment of $58.3 million in KKR Strategic Capital Institutional Fund, Ltd.,

    a KKR-sponsored opportunistic credit fund principally investing in debt securities

    alongside funds managed by investment professionals affiliated with KKR

    Financial LLC, with further commitments of $116.7 million expected to be

    funded in early 2007.

    ; Opportunistic investments of $48.2 million in a publicly traded security.

    ; Capital contributions of $15.3 million with respect to limited partner interests in

    KKR-sponsored private equity funds related to an investment in PagesJaunes, the

    leading publisher of directories in France and the leading online directory portal

    in Europe.

    As of November 10, 2006, the Investment Partnership was committed to another $2.4 billion of investments, as follows:

    ; Co-investments of $250.0 million, as well as related capital contributions

    of approximately $100.0 million to certain KKR-sponsored private equity

    funds, with respect to the following companies:

    - HCA, Inc., a leading health care services company, which has

    signed a definitive merger agreement with an investor group that

    includes KKR;

    - Tarkett SA, the France-based floormaker, in respect of which KKR

    acquired 50% of its controlling majority stockholder, Société

    d'Investissement Familiale SA; and


    - KION Group, the forklift business of Linde AG, which has signed

    a definitive agreement with an investor group that includes KKR.

    ; Capital commitments of $2.0 billion primarily related to a limited partner

    interest in KKR 2006 Fund L.P. to which subscription documents have

    been submitted.

    Whether these commitments will be consummated depends on the satisfaction or waiver of a number of conditions, some or all of which may not be in the control of KPE, the Investment Partnership or KKR. No assurances can be made as to whether or when, or the actual amounts at which, these commitments will be consummated.

    In addition, during October 2006, the Investment Partnership sold an opportunistic position in a publicly traded security resulting in net proceeds of $227.7 million, including a gain on foreign currency transactions, against an original cost of $194.4 million, which produced an annualized net internal rate of return of 93.7 percent.

    The aggregate amount of the Investment Partnership’s investments or investment commitments, excluding temporary investments, totaled $3.6 billion as of November 10, 2006.

    KPE has posted its unaudited financial statements and the unaudited consolidated financial statements of the Investment Partnership, as well as an interim operating and financial review, to its website ( KPE encourages investors to

    carefully read these documents in conjunction with this news release.


    On November 15, 2006, the Board of Directors of KPE’s general partner declared a

    distribution of $0.19 per unit payable on or about December 15, 2006 to unitholders of record immediately prior to the opening of business in Amsterdam on December 1, 2006. Because the distribution was declared subsequent to September 30, 2006, the aggregate distribution payable of $38.9 million is not reflected in KPE’s net asset value as of September 30, 2006.
