Northern Venture Trust PLC (“the Company”) announces that on 21 December 2018 it purchased for cancellation under an existing authority granted by shareholders 623,783 ordinary shares of 25p each in the market at a price of 65.4p, representing approximately 0.47 per cent of the Company's issued ordinary share capital.  There remain 131,911,641 ordinary shares in issue.

In conformity with the Financial Conduct Authority’s Disclosure Guidance and Transparency Rules (the “DTRs”), the Company notifies the market that the capital of the Company consists of 131,911,641 ordinary shares with a nominal value of 25p each.  All the ordinary shares have voting rights.  The Company does not hold any ordinary shares in treasury.  The total number of voting rights in the Company is therefore 131,911,641 (“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 DTRs.
