NORTHERN VENTURE TRUST PLC ("The Company")

Issue of Shares AND TOTAL VOTING RIGHTS

The Company announces that on 17 December 2010 it allotted 427,137 ordinary
shares of 25p each to shareholders who agreed to subscribe for shares under the
terms of the Company's Dividend Investment Scheme. The subscription price was
80.7p per share. Following the above allotment, there are 59,566,555 ordinary
shares in issue.

Application will be made at the earliest practicable opportunity for these
shares, which will rank pari passu with existing ordinary shares, to be admitted
to the Official List of the UK Listing Authority and to trading on the London
Stock Exchange's market for listed securities.

In conformity with the Transparency Directive, the Company notifies the market
that the capital of the Company consists of 59,566,555 ordinary shares with a
nominal value of 25p each. All the shares have voting rights.

The Company does not hold any ordinary shares in treasury.

Therefore, the total number of voting rights in the Company is 59,566,555 (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 and Transparency Rules.
