Dividend Investment Scheme
The Company operates a Dividend Investment Scheme (“the Scheme’’), providing 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 can also elect to join or leave the Scheme 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.
