The Board of Singer & Friedlander AIM 3 VCT PLC ('the Company') announces that
the net proceeds of the offers of C Shares of 5 pence each ('the C Shares') in
the Company have been substantially invested in accordance with the Company's
investment policy, with qualifying investments representing 77.11% of the
portfolio as at 31st October 2005.
In accordance with the Articles of Association of the Company and after taking
relevant advice, the Board announces its intention to convert all 402,023 C
Shares in issue into ordinary shares of 5 pence each ('the Ordinary Shares').

they will cease to trade on the main market for listed securities of London
Stock Exchange plc.
As prescribed in the Articles of Association of the Company the number of
Ordinary Shares to which each holder of C Shares will be entitled on conversion
will be based upon the ratio of the net asset value of the asset pool of the
Company attributable to the C Shares to the net asset value of the asset pool of
the Company attributable to the Ordinary Shares as at 5.30 p.m. on 17th
November, the date on which the Board resolved that the net proceeds of the
offers of C Shares had been substantially invested in accordance with the
Company's investment policy.
In accordance with the Articles of Association of the Company, notices will be
sent to the holders of C Shares before the date on which conversion becomes
effective informing them of the number of Ordinary Shares to which they will
become entitled on conversion (assuming no intervening changes in their holdings
of C Shares).
The record time for calculating the individual entitlements of C Shareholders to
Ordinary Shares will be 5.30 p.m. on Friday 9th December.
