Albion Development VCT PLC - Ordinary Shares : ...

            Albion Development VCT PLC Interim Management Statement

I  am  pleased  to  present  Albion  Development  VCT  PLC's  interim management
statement  for the period from 1 July to  10 November 2011 as required by the UK
Listing Authority's Disclosure and Transparency Rule 4.3.

Performance and dividends
The  Company's  Ordinary  shares'  unaudited  net  asset  value  (NAV), based on
management  accounts, as at 30 September 2011 was  £22.6 million (30 June 2011:
£22.4  million) or  73.5 pence per  share (excluding  treasury shares)  (30 June
2011: 72.3 pence per share).

The  Company's D  shares' unaudited  net asset  value (NAV), based on management
accounts,  as at 30 September 2011 was £5.7 million (30 June 2011: £5.7 million)
or  90.1 pence per share  (excluding treasury shares)  (30 June 2011: 90.4 pence
per share).

The current NAVs and comparative figures are calculated after accounting for the
second dividend for the year to 31 December 2011 of 2.5 pence per Ordinary share
(total cost: £775,000) and 1.25 pence per D share (total cost £79,000) which was
paid  on 30 September  2011 to shareholders  on the  register as  at 2 September

The  Company's Ordinary shares' net asset value has risen by 1.2 pence per share
or  1.6 per cent. since 30 June 2011 as a  result of an increase in the Ordinary
shares'  investment valuations, and the D shares'  net asset value has fallen by
0.3 pence per share or 0.3 per cent. as a result of the costs of the business.
