Interim Management Statement

Octopus Titan VCT 1 plc
Interim Management Statement

16 September 2011

In accordance with Rule 4.3 of the UK Listing Authority's Disclosure and
Transparency rules, Octopus Titan VCT 1 plc ('Titan 1' or 'VCT') presents an
Interim Management Statement for the period 1 May 2011 to 31 July 2011.  The
statement also includes relevant financial information between the end of the
period and the date of this statement.

Financial Summary
                                              As at 30 April    As at 31 October
                       As at 31 July 2011               2011                2010

Net assets (£'000s)                14,867             14,963              15,523

Return after tax                    (305)              (341)                  18

Net asset value per                 91.6p             92.10p               94.9p
share (NAV)

Cumulative dividends                 3.5p              2.75p                2.0p
paid since launch

Total return (NAV plus              95.1p             94.85p               96.9p
dividends paid)

Investment performance
At 31 July 2011 the Total Return of the VCT, being the Net Asset Value (NAV)
plus cumulative dividends, was 95.1p compared to 94.85p at 30 April 2011. The
performance of the VCT has been relatively stable in the period under review and
your Manager has not made any valuation movements in the unquoted portfolio of
investments.   The unquoted portfolio is bedding down and it is expected there
will be individual variations to the valuations of these businesses as their
respective trading performance becomes clear.

During this three month period there was a slight increase in the value of the
VCT's investments in the Open Ended Investment Companies ('OEICs'). There was an
uplift in value of 3.5% in the CF Octopus UK Micro Cap Growth Fund and a small
profit was realised on the sale of the remaining investment in the CF Octopus
Absolute UK Equity Fund. At 31 July 2011, 21.7% of the Company's net assets were
held in liquid resources in the form of OEICs, cash and cash equivalents.

We have continued to focus on monitoring existing portfolio companies, alongside
giving them support with advice and new funding needs. During the period under
review, Titan 1 made follow-on investments into GetOptics (£37,000), MiPay
(£73,000) and True Knowledge (£84,000).

Since the period end there have been a number of events that have affected the
stock market and in turn the valuations of the OEIC and AiM investments.  At 12
September 2011 the bid value of these investments had decreased by £380,000
since 31 July 2011 which represents a reduction in NAV of 2.3p per share.

A full update will be provided in the Annual Report for the year ending 31
October 2011.
