ViCTory VCT plc

Interim Management Statement

For the period 31 July 2009 to 16 December 2009


This is the Interim Management Statement from the Board under the Disclosure and Transparency Rules. 

Investment Strategy


The objective of the Company is to provide shareholders with an attractive and competitive investment return from a portfolio of companies whose shares are primarily traded on the Alternative Investment Market (AIM). Returns will be enhanced as a consequence of dividends and capital gains being free of tax for private investors.

Material Events plus financial implications

The performance of the portfolio continues to disappoint. The Board has therefore decided to appoint a new fund manager. Further details will be provided as soon as possible. 

The Board does not consider that there are any other material events giving rise to financial implications that are not covered in the following sections.

Material transactions plus financial implications

Since our Interim Report for the period to 31 July 2009 the market generally has made further progress although the impact on our portfolio has been tempered by a number of factors including our significant cash and fixed interest balances, the performance of VCT non-qualifying sectors such as natural resources and the failure of Aero Inventory, one of our largest investments, due to the withdrawal of banking support

On the positive side there has been a further increase in the number of companies seeking to raise VCT qualifying funds enabling us to make further investments, as listed below, thereby reducing our cash and fixed interest balances. 

The new investments made since our interim report total some £1.5m. The Company still maintains good liquidity with cash and UK Government securities totalling some £4.6m representing in total about 25% (33.6% as at 31 July) by value of the portfolio.

We have purchased 669,312 of the Trust's own shares during this period. The current discount to net asset value at which we are prepared to repurchase shares is 20%.

Change in Net Asset Value

The company's NAV per share has decreased from 45.09 pence at 31 July 2009 to 43.97 pence as at 30 November, a decrease of 2.4%, compared with an increase in the AIM Index of some 21.2%. This decrease reflects the factors referred to above. 

The Trust's NAV is calculated weekly and reported in the Financial Times.
