Each VCT has allotted shares in respect of successful 2019/2020 tax year applications, on 5 February 2020 for Maven VCT 3, and on 11 February 2020 for Maven VCT 4.
In respect of 2020/2021 tax year applications, the original intention was that an allotment would take place by each VCT as soon as practicable after 6 April 2020. However, on 26 March 2020, in view of the uncertainty around the potential impact of the COVID-19 outbreak on the trading performance of underlying portfolio companies, the Boards of both VCTs announced an intention to delay the allotment date to no earlier than 30 April 2020. This was to allow the Board and the Manager time to review the portfolio to ensure that the issue price reflects the valuation of the underlying portfolio. This review is still ongoing, and an announcement on the intended allotment date will be made as soon as possible.
A combined tax and share certificate (or a standalone tax voucher for Offer Shares credited to CREST accounts) will be issued by Link, together with a summary of allotment details, within ten Business Days following an allotment. Therefore, Shareholders should expect to receive certificates within 14 Business Days following an allotment.
