Intention to utilise remaining Over-Allotment Facility

On 11 January 2022, ProVen VCT plc and ProVen Growth and Income VCT plc (the “Companies”) launched offers for subscription (the “Offer”) to raise up to £40.0 million by way of an issue of new ordinary shares (“New Ordinary Shares”) in the Companies, with each of the Companies raising up to £20.0 million, together with an over-allotment facility of up to a further £40.0 million (being up to £20.0 million for each of the Companies). Full details of the Offer are contained in a prospectus (comprising a Securities Note, Registration Document and Summary (the “Prospectus”)), which was published by the Companies on 11 January 2022.

Under the terms and conditions of the Offer, as set out in the Prospectus, the directors of the Companies have the ability (at their discretion) to utilise the over-allotment facility and increase the number of New Ordinary Shares available for subscription in order to raise further amounts under the Offer of up to £20.0 million in each of the Companies. On 9 March 2022, the Companies announced the utilisation of part of the over-allotment facility of up to £10 million for each of the Companies.

Each of the Companies expects to reach the increased £30.0 million capacity under their respective Offer shortly. Accordingly, the directors of both Companies are pleased to announce that they intend to utilise their respective remaining over-allotment facility at this time, in the amount of £10.0 million for each Company.
