Octopus Titan VCT 5 PLC : Interim Management Statement

Octopus Titan VCT 5 plc
Interim Management Statement

16 March 2012

In accordance with Rule 4.3 of the UK Listing Authority's Disclosure and Transparency rules, Octopus Titan VCT 5 plc ('Titan 5' or 'VCT') presents an Interim Management Statement for the period 1 November 2011 to 31 January 2012.  The statement also includes relevant financial information between the end of the period and the date of this statement.

Financial Summary

3 months to 31 January 2012Year to 31 October 2011
Net assets (£'000s) 12,592 12,660
Return on ordinary activities before tax (£'000s) (68)  (267)
Net asset value per share ('NAV') 92.1p 92.6p

Investment performance
As at 31 January 2012 the NAV of the VCT was 92.1p, which compares to 92.6p at 31 October 2011. Titan 5's investments in the Open Ended Investment Companies ('OEICs') have seen an overall uplift in value of £38,000 over the three months to 31 January 2012 which has contributed to an increase in the net asset value of 0.3p. This has, however, been offset by the VCT's standard running costs in the period exceeding income generated from its cash holdings awaiting investment in suitable qualifying companies. Over the longer term, as the underlying portfolio of investments is created, the VCT's NAV will be linked increasingly to the value of the investments in the portfolio.

Titan 5 has continued to see a good deal flow over the last four months. Since 31 October 2011, the VCT has invested into three companies including £400,000 into Rangespan, a supply chain management company, £350,000 into Artesian Solutions, a business software company and £383,000 into Curlet (UK) Limited (trading as 10CMS), an interactive merchandising platform. This has brought the total portfolio to 4 current trading businesses.

The total value of the investment portfolio at 31 January 2012 was £1.4 million. By value, 11.4% of the Company's net assets were in unquoted investments, 28.9% in Octopus OEICs, leaving 59.7% in cash or cash equivalents.

Qualifying Investment Portfolio as at 31 January 2012

CompanySectorCarrying value £'000% of total net assets
Rangespan Limited Technology             400 3.2%
Curlet (UK) Limited Technology             383 3.0%
Artesian Limited Technology             350 2.8%
Michelson Diagnostics Limited Consumer lifestyle & wellbeing             305 2.4%

Material events and transactions
Titan 5, in conjunction with the other Titan funds, is raising a total of £6.25 million with a view to allot on 5 April 2012 immediately preceded by a publication of the NAV at that date.

Titan 5's Board is not aware of any other significant event which has occurred between 31 January 2012 and the date of publication of this statement which would have a material impact on the financial position of the VCT.
