NAV Total Return per share
Decisions on distributions take into consideration the availability of surplus revenue, the realisation of capital gains, the adequacy of distributable reserves and the VCT qualifying level, all of which are kept under close and regular review by the Board and the Manager. As the portfolio continues to expand and a greater proportion of holdings are invested in young companies, future distributions will be more closely linked to realisation activity, whilst also reflecting the Company’s requirement to maintain its VCT qualifying level. If larger distributions are required as a consequence of exits, this could result in a corresponding reduction in NAV per share.

Recommendations of non-mainstream investment products
The Company currently conducts its affairs so that the shares issued by it can be recommended by independent financial advisers to ordinary retail investors in accordance with the FCA’s rules in relation to non-mainstream investment products and intends to continue to do so for the foreseeable future. The Company’s shares are excluded from the FCA’s restrictions which apply to non-mainstream investment products because they are shares in a venture capital trust and the returns to investors are predominantly based on investments in private companies or publicly quoted securities.
