Issue of Equity and Total Voting Rights

5 APRIL 2022



Further to the announcement made by Northern Venture Trust PLC (“the Company”) on 1 April 2022, whereby the Company announced that it had allotted 8,449,994 ordinary shares of 25p each (the “Shares”) at prices between 70.74 pence per share and 73.55 pence per share for an aggregate consideration of £5,872,934.24, the Company announces, by way of clarification, that of those Shares, 8,125,894 have been allotted and issued pursuant to the prospectus published by the Company on 10 January 2022 (the “Prospectus”).   A further 324,100 Ordinary Shares have been issued outside the terms of the offer set out in the Prospectus.

Following the above allotments, there are 169,023,860 ordinary shares in issue.   The Company does not hold any ordinary shares in treasury.

Application will be made for the new ordinary shares, which will rank pari passu with the existing ordinary shares, to be admitted to the Official List of the Financial Conduct Authority and to trading on the London Stock Exchange’s main market for listed securities, and dealings are expected to commence on or around 12 April 2022.

In conformity with the Financial Conduct Authority’s Disclosure Guidance and Transparency Rules (the “DTRs”), the Company notifies the market that the capital of the Company consists of 169,023,860 ordinary shares with a nominal value of 25p each. All the ordinary shares have voting rights. The Company does not hold any ordinary shares in treasury. The total number of voting rights in the Company is therefore 169,023,860 (“the Figure”). The Figure may be used by a shareholder or other person as the denominator for the calculations by which he will determine if he is required to notify the voting rights he holds in relation to the Company, or a change to those voting rights, under the DTRs.

Defined terms in this announcement have the same meaning as in the Prospectus.
