NORTHERN 3 VCT PLC

CORRECTION:  TRANSACTION IN OWN SHARES AND TOTAL VOTING RIGHTS

In the announcement issued on 22 May 2012 (reference HUG1613972), the capital of Northern 3 VCT PLC ("the Company") was incorrectly stated as consisting of 45,145,591 ordinary shares with a nominal value of 5p, with voting rights, whereas the correct figure was 49,145,591 ordinary shares with a nominal value of 5p, with voting rights.

The corrected announcement is as follows:

Northern 3 VCT PLC ("the Company") announces that on 21 May 2012 it purchased for cancellation under an existing authority granted by shareholders 258,661 ordinary shares of 5p each in the market at a price of 82.19p, representing approximately 0.53 per cent of the Company's issued ordinary share capital.  There remain 49,145,591 ordinary shares in issue.

In conformity with the Transparency Directive, the Company notifies the market that the capital of the Company consists of 49,145,591 ordinary shares with a nominal value of 5p, with voting rights.

The Company does not hold any ordinary shares in treasury.

Therefore, the total number of voting rights in the Company is 49,145,591 (the "Figure").

The Figure may be used by a shareholder or other person as the denominator for the calculations by which he will determine if he is required to notify the voting rights he holds in relation to the Company, or a change to those voting rights, under the FSA's Disclosure Rules and Transparency Rules.
