The World Trust Fund (the “Company”) announces that on 18th March 2011 the Company purchased 113,586 ordinary shares of USD 0.20 each, to be held in treasury, at a price of 183p per share.

Following this purchase the Company's issued share capital consists of 60,217,350 ordinary shares with voting rights (including 5,075,932 ordinary shares which are held in treasury).

The above figure (60,217,350) may be used by shareholders as the denominator for the calculations by which they will determine if they are required to notify their interest in, or a change to their interests in, the Company in accordance with the Luxembourg Transparency Law of 11 January 2008 on transparency requirements for issuers of securities.

For the purposes of determining whether shareholders are required to notify their interest in, or a change to their interests in the Company under the FSA's Disclosure and Transparency Rules, the figure of 55,141,418 may be used as the denominator (being the total number of shares in issue excluding treasury shares in respect of which voting rights have been suspended).
