I too spread my VCT investments around. I wait for a tender (Rensburg in this case) or winding up etc then reinvest. 15 year VCT veteran.

Rahosi - yes, I think Apollo is a decent choice from the huge VCT universe. I've made two investments there and have now a big exposure, plus getting dividends in shares - a useful thing to consider since you get the 30% tax rebate, though keeping a track of the 5-yr rule is a bind! Useful to register with Apollo via their website to keep track your holding. For 2015-16, I'm maybe looking to go elsewhere, and the ProVen top-up might be my choice.

Thanks Jon As I thought - ADVFN error! The 20 Aug 2015 NAV on hxxp://www.octopusinvestments.com/investors/shareholder-information/apollo-vct/ is 80.9p Application in post.

Rahosi - the NAV issued by OAP3 is, as you say, the 83.4p of 21/08. The NAV used in the merger appears to be the one I posted in #10, above. On 11 Dec they announced: Octopus Apollo VCT plc (the "Company") announces that 2,328,139 Ordinary Shares of 10p each have been issued and allotted today at a price of 85.2p per share equivalent to the current NAV of 80.9p grossed up by up to 5.0% (as set out in the Prospectus dated 2 November 2015). These shares were issued pursuant to the Offer for Subscription ... It's all a bit confusing, and I can't account for the rather large drop to 80.9p above, unless costs are a factor on top of the dividend. What I would suggest is: never trust numbers given by third parties such as ADVFN. If they have a number, it should be verifiable by going back to a company announcement.

Am considering buying some in the offer. What I don't understand is the difference in NAV between 21 August 2015 - 83.4p and the current NAV - 95.46p (published by ADVFN) Especially as there was an 2.5p XD on 12 November 2015; thus an increase of 14.56p = 17½%! Yet the share price has dropped ½p over the same period. Can someone please enlighten me? I can only assume ADVFN has it wrong.

OK, thanks for the clarification, our FA was unsure as to whether you qualified for the 30% relief if shares were bought in the open market. Interesting regarding the relief from divi tax though. :)

jbarker - for the 30% relief, purchase has to be by a new issue of shares from the company. They then send you a Certificate which you can present to HMRC if required. You enter the purchase on your tax return. If it's your first one, they'll want to see it, otherwise probably not. A purchase in the open market doesn't qualify for the 30% tax rebate, but your shares are independent of CGT or additional dividend tax - ie. leave them off your return. The 30% tax relief is dependent on you holding the shares for five years.

jonwig - Just a question re OAP3, I`m aware of a scheme where one can use the purchase of these shares to offset against tax on your tax return but I don`t know if this has to be done through an FA or whether this can be done one`s self by just buying the shares in the open market and doing the necessary calculations yourself. :)

New shares offer price should be pitched at latest NAV of 89.7p plus costs, ie. 94.5p. Intermediaries such as H-L should rebate much of that, so price to pay will be between 62.8p and 66.1p. Target dividend is 5p pa for next five years, hence a yield on cost of some 7% to 8%.
