Restatement of dividends following capital reorganisation

Dividend Investment Scheme
Please note that the Company has suspended its Dividend Investment Scheme (“the Scheme’’) as of 14 August 2018 until further notice. Please see the Chairman's Statement in the Half-Year Report for the six months ended 30 June 2019 for further details.
The Scheme provided shareholders with the opportunity to reinvest their cash dividends into new shares in the Company.
New VCT shares attract the same tax reliefs as shares purchased through an Offer for Subscription. The Scheme allows shareholders to re-invest at an advantageous price, being the greater of (i) 70% of the last published net asset value per existing ordinary share and (ii) the average market price of the shares for the five business days prior to the dividend being paid. This price (ii) is likely to be at a discount of 10% to the underlying net asset value.
The terms and conditions for the Scheme and a mandate form can be downloaded by by clicking the following links.
Shareholders cannot currently elect to join the Scheme but can alter their mandate instruction by post to Link Asset Services, The Registry, 34 Beckenham Road, Beckenham, Kent BR3 4TU telephone: 0371 664 0324. Calls are charged at the standard geographic rate and will vary by provider. Calls from outside the United Kingdom are charged at the applicable international rate. Lines are open 9.00 am – 5.30 pm Mon – Fri, excluding public holidays in England and Wales.
