7 DECEMBER 2023
NORTHERN VENTURE TRUST PLC
ISSUE OF EQUITY AND TOTAL VOTING RIGHTS
Northern Venture Trust PLC (“the Company”) announces that on 7 December 2023 it allotted 19,211,579 ordinary shares of 25p each in respect of the offer of new ordinary shares for subscription in the 2023/24 tax year, pursuant to the prospectus published on 18 September 2023 (the “Prospectus”). In accordance with the Pricing Formula set out in the Prospectus, the new ordinary shares were issued at prices between 62.65 pence per share and 66.04 pence per share depending on the level of Promoter’s Fee and Adviser Charge (if applicable) pertaining to each application. The aggregate of the subscription amounts paid to the Company pursuant to the Offer is £11,796,240.42. Following the above allotment, there are 191,489,134 ordinary shares in issue.
An application will be made at the earliest practicable opportunity 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 (“the FCA”) and to trading on the London Stock Exchange’s market for listed securities, and dealings are expected to commence on or around 14 December 2023.
In conformity with the FCA’s Disclosure Guidance and Transparency Rules (the “DTRs”), the Company notifies the market that the capital of the Company consists of 191,489,134 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 191,489,134 (“the Figure”). The Figure may be used by a shareholder or other person as the denominator for the calculations by which they will determine if they are required to notify the voting rights they hold 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.
