Henderson Smaller Cos Inv Tst PLC

2 December 2008


Transactions in a Close Period - Listing Rule 15.5.1 (4)

The Henderson Smaller Companies Investment Trust plc ('the Company') hereby confirms that:

a)    there is no unpublished information which constitutes price sensitive information in respect of the Company's securities;

b)    the Company's net asset value per share is calculated and announced through a Regulated Information Service ('RIS') on a daily basis; 

c)    the Company has no reason to believe that there will be any material difference between the net asset value announced on 1 December 2008 (as at close of business on 28 November 2008) and the financial information to be published in the announcement of its financial report for the half year ended 30 November 2008;

d)    the Company has some investments that are no longer quoted, the directors' valuations of which have been included in the net asset values published on a daily basis.

The Company is therefore exempt during the close period from the provisions of the Model Code in respect of dealings by persons discharging managerial responsibilities and purchases of its own securities.  If, in the period leading up to the announcement of the results, the directors or the Company come into possession of any inside information, this will be notified to a RIS before any such transactions are undertaken.

The close period to which this notification relates is in respect of the financial half year ended 30 November 2008.
