Allotment of Shares under Offer for Subscription

Further to an offer for subscription of ordinary shares of 1p each in Hargreave Hale AIM VCT 1 to raise up to £10,000,000 and ordinary shares of 1p each in Hargreave Hale Aim VCT 2 to raise up to £10,000,000 pursuant to a prospectus dated 1 November 2013 and a supplementary prospectus dated 14 January 2014, the Company announces an allotment on 25 March 2014 of 463,437 Ordinary Shares in the Company pursuant to the Offer.

The offer price at which the Ordinary Shares were allotted was 89.55p per Ordinary Share, which was calculated by reference to the net asset value of an Ordinary Share in the Company on 21 March 2014 (as announced on 24 March 2014), divided by 0.965 (to allow for issue costs of the Offer).

Following this allotment the total number of Ordinary Shares in issue is 33,986,599. This figure may be used by shareholders in the Company as the denominator for the calculations by which they will determine if they are required to notify their interest in, or a change to their interest in, the share capital of the Company under the Disclosure and Transparency Rules.

Application will shortly be made for the Ordinary Shares so allotted 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, and dealings are expected to commence on or around the 26 March 2014. Definitive documents of title are expected to be despatched within 15 business days of allotment.
