SHAREHOLDER MEETING - proposed REDUCTION IN SHARE PREMIUM ACCOUNT

Northern 2 VCT PLC ("the Company") announces that a circular has today been posted to shareholders giving notice of a shareholder general meeting to be held on 23 November 2011 to consider a resolution to reduce the share premium account of the Company by £25 million.  Subject to shareholder approval of the resolution, the Company intends to apply to the High Court to seek its confirmation of the reduction in the share premium account, whereupon a corresponding amount will be credited to a distributable reserve which will, together with the Company's existing distributable reserves, be available to be used by the Company inter alia to re-purchase Shares for cancellation (including those proposed to be re-purchased in the tender offer announced on 23 September 2011) and to pay dividends to shareholders.  The result of the proposal, if implemented, will be to effect a transfer between two categories of reserves in the Company's balance sheet and there will be no impact on the assets and liabilities of the Company.

A copy of the circular has been submitted to the National Storage Mechanism and will shortly be available for inspection at www.Hemscott.com/nsm.do and is also available on the NVM Private Equity website at www.nvm.co.uk/n2vctgmnov2011
