Octopus Apollo VCT plc (“the “Company”)

30 September 2021

Publication of Prospectus and Circular

The Company has issued a prospectus and circular, both dated 30 September 2021, relating to a proposed offer for subscription for ordinary shares of 10p each in the Company (“New Shares”) to raise up to £50 million with an over-allotment of up to a further £25 million (the “Offer”), following the approval of the prospectus from the Financial Conduct Authority.

Pursuant to an agreement dated 30 September 2021 relating to the Offer between, inter alia, the Company and Octopus Investments Limited, the Company’s investment manager (the “Manager”), which constitutes a smaller related party transaction within Listing Rule 11.1.10 R, the Manager will receive:

  • an initial charge of 3 per cent of the gross funds raised under the Offer by the Company; and

  • a further charge of up to 2.5 per cent of gross funds raised under the Offer by the Company from investors who have not invested their money through a financial intermediary (“Direct Investors”); and

  • an additional ongoing charge of 0.5% of the net asset value of the investment amount received by the Company under the Offer from Direct Investors, payable for up to nine years, provided the Direct Investors continue to hold the New Shares.

The Offer is now open and will close at noon on 5 April 2021 for the 2021/2022 tax year and noon on 29 September 2022 for the 2022/2023 tax year, or earlier if the Offer is fully subscribed. The board of the Company reserves the right to close the Offer earlier.

The prospectus and circular will shortly be available for inspection at the National Storage Mechanism, which is located at:
