The Board of Oxford Technology 2 VCT Plc (OT2) is pleased to announce that all of the resolutions proposed at the General Meeting held today, 20 June 2022, were duly passed on a show of hands. 

Shareholders of OT2 have now passed all the resolutions to enable the Merger, the issue of Consideration Shares and Leisure Shares, as set out in the Circular dated 18 May 2022. The Board of OT2 notes that the shareholders of each of Oxford Technology VCT Plc (OT1), Oxford Technology 3 VCT Plc (OT3) and Oxford Technology 4 VCT Plc (OT4) have also today approved the resolutions to enable the merger of their companies with OT2. Provided OT1, OT3 and OT4 shareholders also approve the placing of OT1, OT3 and OT4 into Members Voluntary Liquidation at the Second General Meetings of their companies on 30 June 2022, it is expected that the Merger will complete on the same day. Admission of and dealings in Consideration Shares is expected to be 1 July 2022 when OT2 will have four separate share classes, the Ordinary Shares representing the pool of assets linked to the existing OT2 share pool, and 3 new share pools incorporating the assets and liabilities transferred from OT1, OT3 and OT4.  A further announcement will be made at that time.

Proxy votes were received in respect of 1,744,361 Ordinary Shares, representing 32.7% of the issued share capital as at 16 June 2022.
