Northern VCTs' share offers fully subscribed in less than two weeks

Northern Venture Trust and Northern 2 VCT – Venture Capital Trusts managed by NVM Private Equity – launched linked top-up offers of new ordinary shares on 10 January 2013 to raise up to £4 million for each fund. Both offers were fully subscribed by 22 January – some ten weeks before the end of the current tax year.

Tim Levett, Chairman of NVM Private Equity, said:
“There was overwhelming demand for our share offers. Northern Venture Trust sold out eight days after we launched and Northern 2 VCT four days thereafter. This demonstrates the strong market demand for VCTs with a consistent track record of returns and a mature portfolio of private equity investments. The latest fundraising will provide additional funds for investment into small-to-medium sized businesses with high growth potential. We are currently considering plans for another VCT share offer for the 2013/14 tax year.”
