CHAIRMAN'S UPDATE

I am pleased to present your Company's results for the 6 months to 31 August 2019.

Performance summary

The NAV showed a 3.6p per share decrease in the 6 months to 31 August 2019. Of this decrease in value, 3.4 pence per share is attributable to the dividend that was paid in July 2019. The further movement is attributable to the performance of qualifying investments.

I am delighted to report that during the period, the Company's holding in Synpromics Limited was sold achieving an impressive return for investors. Whilst the financial terms of the acquisition are undisclosed, the return achieved significantly exceeds target returns. The deal is further enhanced by the potential to benefit from future licensing fees on Synpromics existing portfolio of licences.

AnTech has performed well in the period, increasing 30% in value since 28 February 2019. This is predominantly due to the growth of its directional drilling tools division. Money Dashboard has increased in value by 20% in the period as it has improved its market position following a funding round in July 2019.

Although many companies in the portfolio showed strong growth, the Company's NAV was hit by the write down of some investments. Terrain Energy was written down by GBP265,000 due to the disappointing results of the Brockham well test. Solab's equity was written down in full losing GBP180,000 of NAV value when the company was put in administration in June 2019. The value of Pico's (Benito's Hat) has also been written down as the company is continuing to experience difficult trading conditions. In addition, the current economic and political uncertainty in the UK which has led to weak performance of the public markets has also impacted the few AIM quoted holdings in the portfolio.

The NAV also suffered from the low return earned on cash and near cash balances held by the Company awaiting investment. The Company has an active investment programme and funds are now being put to work.

In the period to 31 August 2019, six new investments were made on behalf of the qualifying portfolio:

   -     March 2019: the Company invested an additional GBP100,000 in WheelRright Limited 
   -     April 2019: GBP300,000 was invested in Wazoku Limited 

- April 2019: GBP300,000 was invested in existing portfolio company Blu Wireless Technologies Limited

   -     May 2019: the Company invested GBP340,000 in IPV Limited 
   -     May 2019: the Company invested a further GBP200,000 in Every1Mobile Limited 
   -     July 2019: the Company invested a further GBP150,000 in Quai Administration Services Limited 

Further information can be found on new investee companies Wazoku Limited and IPV Limited in the Investment Manager's Report.

Buybacks

During the period, the Company bought back and cancelled 78,279 Ordinary shares. The Company continues to review opportunities to carry out share buybacks at a discount of no greater than 10% to NAV.

Dividends

As mentioned above, a dividend was paid on 26 July 2019 of 3.4 pence per eligible Ordinary share.

Board composition

Michael O'Higgins stepped down from the board following the AGM in July 2019 and I was appointed Chairman from that date. I would like to thank Michael for his contribution to the VCT over the past 10 years.

Change of auditor

The Company appointed BDO LLP to take over from Grant Thornton in May 2019 after carrying out a tender process. BDO LLP were then elected by shareholders at the Annual General Meeting on 4 July 2019.

Ordinary share issue

The offer for subscription for Ordinary Shares that opened on 13 September 2018 and closed on 31 August 2019 received aggregate subscriptions from the issue of Ordinary shares of GBP5.9 million.

On 24 September 2019 a new prospectus was launched for a further offer for subscription for Ordinary Shares, with the shares to be issued in the 2019/20 and 2020/21 tax years.

Developments since the period end

On 6 September 2019, the Company issued 1,334,399 Ordinary Shares under the prospectus approved on 13 September 2019. The Company subsequently launched a new offer 24 September 2019.

Other than mentioned above, there have been no material developments since the period end.

INTERIM MANAGEMENT REPORT

Venture Capital Investments

Portfolio developments

Calculus Capital Limited manages the Company's portfolio of venture capital investments. In general, Calculus Capital prefers investments to be of a sufficient size to enable them to play an influential role in helping the investee companies develop. Investments by the Company may be by way of equity, and also by way of loan stock and/or preference shares which provide income to assist in paying dividends and provide a measure of risk mitigation.

As at 31 August 2019, the portfolio had 31 Qualifying Investments. An update on some of the portfolio companies has been provided below.

AnTech Limited

AnTech is a specialist engineering company in the oil and gas market, manufacturing products for use in oil and gas production, as well as providing directional coiled tube drilling services. The Products Division supplies high specification customised and standard products. The division is on track for a record year, with current sales and the order book bolstered by continued oil price stabilisation. AnTech's Services Division has developed a new generation of directional drilling tools, which transforms the manner and efficiency with which oil and gas wells can be drilled with coiled tubing. Following a period of slowly gaining market acceptance, the division is showing promising signs of growth, with a bigger and better pipeline than previously. AnTech has managed its resources, including cash, well and is optimistic about the prospects for both its divisions.

Arcis Biotechnology Holdings Limited

Arcis has developed an innovative way of extracting DNA and potentially RNA which has significant advantages over other techniques. Arcis' patented sample preparation system simply and rapidly opens up human cells, microorganisms, viruses and fungi to release the DNA / RNA and, unlike competitor processes, the Arcis chemistry more effectively protects the DNA / RNA from degradation. Arcis has signed its first commercial license agreement providing its technology in the development of a rapid diagnostic test. The initial progress of this collaboration has been positive. In July 2019 Arcis received a GBP1.2m investment from new and existing investors. The funds will be used to further support the company's product development and commercialization efforts.

Arecor Limited

Arecor, with a proprietary technology platform, partners with major global pharmaceutical and biotech companies in a licencing model to deliver superior reformulations of their proprietary products, which would not be possible using conventional formulation science. Arecor is also leveraging its platform to develop its own portfolio of products, initially focused on improving the treatment of diabetes. Since the investment by Calculus VCT, as part of a GBP6m round, the company has appointed a new CFO, Susan Lowther, who has significant experience across both private and public fast-growing life science companies. In March 2019, in line with its plan, Arecor announced that its Phase I clinical trial application for its ultra-rapid acting insulin product has been approved by the Austrian regulator. The trial is being conducted in Austria at an internationally recognised centre of excellence in the field of diabetes research and results are expected later in 2019.

Blu Wireless Technology Limited

The Company invested GBP300,000 in Blu Wireless Technology (BWT) in April 2019. BWT is a key player in the development of high frequency (mmWave) wireless communication, which allows for multi-gigabit per second data transfer with low latency has been heralded as the future for ultra-fast wireless technology. Key market applications include: reducing the cost of building dense 5G networks by providing backhaul through fixed wireless access (FWA); and reliable high-speed connectivity for high speed trains and vehicles. BWT is a key part of two UK government contracts as part of the UK's 5G Strategy, including in Liverpool to support the NHS and its high-speed transport technology is being used in the Auto Air Testbed. In February 2019, BWT announced a partnership with FirstGroup, to deliver high speed internet to trains both in the UK and overseas. In April 2019, BWT completed a GBP12.6m funding round, in which Calculus VCT participated alongside ARM (formerly Arm Holdings) and other new institutional investors.

Cloud Trade Technologies Limited

Cloud Trade is a software company providing technology that allows businesses to automate the invoice handling process in a way that is completely invisible to the supplier. Invoices are simply directed to a new email address, allowing Cloud Trade's patented software to automatically extract the relevant data and inject it directly into the accounting system. Today, Cloud Trade's software is primarily used to automate the accounts payable process, but the technology is applicable to any computer-generated document. With the rise of robotic process automation (RPA) systems, Cloud Trade's addressable market is expected to expand significantly. Since the investment by Calculus, the company has appointed a new Chairman, Philip Padfield, and a new Chief Revenue Officer, Steve Emecz, established a US entity (Cloud Trade Inc.) and launched Cloud Trade Logistics; a specialised product for the US freight logistics industry. Cloud Trade has progressed well over recent months with new customers won in the US (Cloud Trade Logistics), the UK and Europe. In June 2019, Cloud Trade launched on the Systems Applications and Products ("SAP(R)") App Center, the digital marketplace for SAP partner offerings, which is expected to be an important future sales channel.

Essentia Analytics Limited

Essentia Analytics provides decision analytics in order to improve the performance of active asset managers. Essentia's proprietary software conducts full algorithmic analysis of all past investment decisions, and using machine learning identifies each individual portfolio manager's behavioural biases. The software then continuously monitors their portfolio including individual stock performance and trading and creates proactive behavioural 'nudges' to help the fund manager improve his or her performance. Quarterly consultation sessions are also provided to reinforce change in behavioural trading biases at an individual and team level. Its customers include large US, UK and European asset management companies as well as hedge funds. In January 2019, Calculus invested GBP2.5m in the company, which is being used to expand their product offering, in particular for asset allocators (CIOs), and to drive growth by strengthening the US and European sales and marketing capability.

Every1Mobile Limited

The Company invested GBP200,000 in Every1Mobile ('E1M') in May 2019 bringing the total investment to GBP400,000. In 2018, E1M grew revenues by 60%, and won several major contracts, including its first Software-as-a-Service (SaaS) licensing contract for delivery of online business education services to micro-entrepreneurs across Unilever's worldwide emerging markets. Its platform also connects 3,200 shopkeepers and 13,000 consumers in Kenya and Nigeria as part of public-private partnership between Unilever, DFID and the Bill & Melinda Gates Foundation. These partnerships are designed to build the businesses of low-income shopkeepers via education and access to services, such as consumer vouchering. In February 2019, DeafKidz International and E1M announced a partnership to develop an online platform for emerging markets worldwide that will enable professionals, such as teachers, police, social workers and health workers, to access online training and resources and access peer and expert support through their mobile phone.

IPV Limited

The Company invested GBP340,000 in IPV during the period: GBP40,000 of equity and GBP300,000 of loan notes. IPV's proprietary software enables companies to access, store, modify, tag and transfer video content quickly and efficiently, significantly improving internal processes and creating more routes to market. IPV's products are designed to create a "Content Factory" experience for the users, streamlining the creative editorial process and the delivery of content to multiple platforms. IPV has an established, blue chip customer base in the media and broadcast industry, including Turner, Sony Entertainment, the Oscars (AMPAS) and Sky. IPV continues to move from its historical "perpetual licence" model to a subscription and hosted, recurring revenue model. The change has resulted in relatively flat total revenues over recent periods, but strong growth in the more valuable, recurring revenue stream. In 2018, total revenues fell slightly compared to the prior year, but more valuable recurring revenue increased by 60% from GBP1m to GBP1.6m over the same period. Focus for the next twelve months is to continue increasing the recurring revenues.

MicroEnergy Generation Services Limited

MicroEnergy Generation Services owns and operates a fleet of 147 small onshore wind turbines (<5kW). Revenues from the fleet of turbines come from two sources, firstly, there is the Government backed feed-in tariff paid by the electricity suppliers for every kilowatt of electricity generated. Secondly, there is an export tariff for any surplus electricity not used by the site owner that is exported to the grid. Full year generation to 31 March 2019 was in line with the previous year despite a lower wind resource due to efforts being focused on optimising the performance of the fleet. This included the recent replacement of nine of its Chinese manufactured Huaying HY5 turbines with Elance R9000s which do not suffer from reliability issues. The company is actively investigating exit opportunities.

Money Dashboard Limited

Money Dashboard offers its users a free view of their finances (from bank accounts, credit cards, store cards, etc.) in one secure place. The company's proprietary transaction tagging technology analyses the user's spending into categories, providing an automatically updating, consolidated view of their financial lives. Money Dashboard's principal revenue stream is based upon aggregating its users' data on an anonymous basis to analyse consumer spending trends, which can be sold to institutional investors and others. In August 2019, Calculus Capital invested a further GBP1.0m (as part of a GBP4.6m round) which will be used to support additional recruitment, as well as to further develop the company's technological offering, helping cement the company's market leading position.

Open Orphan plc (formerly Venn Life Sciences)

In May 2019 the Board of Directors of Venn Life Sciences, an integrated Contract Research Organisation providing drug development, clinical trial management and resourcing solutions, recommended the company enter into a reverse takeover transaction with Open Orphan, a services platform for pharmaceutical and biotechnology companies with a particular focus on drugs for rare diseases, which have been designated as "Orphan Drugs". Open Orphan has built a database connecting over 4,000 rare disease specialist physicians with over 500 pharmaceutical companies with orphan drugs in development or on the market across Europe. Open Orphan has also begun establishing a patient health data platform, with a focus on rare diseases. Venn Life Sciences' service offerings will enable the combined group to assist the developers of rare disease and orphan products from pre-clinical development through to commercialisation. The combined group aims to build a leading, European-focussed, rare and orphan drug consulting services platform, building on its existing capability through strategic and targeted acquisitions.

Oxford BioTherapuetics Limited

Oxford BioTherapeutics (OBT) is a clinical stage oncology company committed to the discovery and development of novel therapies for various cancer types. OBT has a number of partnered programs, as well as a strong pipeline of proprietary immune-oncology (IO) therapies, which are used to re-engage and recruit the body's immune system to attack cancer cells. In June 2019, OBT received a milestone payment from Boehringer Ingelheim (BI) in relation to the advancement of one of two pre-clinical stage candidates, which BI is developing. In addition, the most advanced of OBT's two clinical stage assets, which are both being funded by The Menarini Group through to completion of Phase II, has begun clinical development in the US for patients with high risk breast cancer and other solid tumours. In August 2019, OBT received an investment of $5m from ALSA Ventures, a life sciences investor focused on novel therapeutics.

Park Street Shipping Limited

In February 2017, Park Street Shipping purchased MV Nordic London, a 2010 South Korean built 35,000 dwt Handysize dry bulk carrier, taking advantage of the attractive investment environment in the sector. The company recently secured a 7-10-month charter with Cargill, the largest privately held corporation in the United States in terms of revenue, at USD 10,300 per day. This is the same day rate as the previous charter which was secured when the market was stronger suggesting that the vessel is performing well and in demand. Mid-term prospects for the sector are encouraging with fleet growth expected to be approximately 2% versus dry bulk demand growth of 3%, although ongoing risks to the sector persist due to international trade disputes. The valuation has been increased since the last valuation date due to the strength of the USD against the GBP as the vessel earns income in USD.

Pico's Limited ("Benito's Hat")

Benito's Hat is a Mexican-themed fast casual restaurant business with eight sites. As has been widely reported, trading in the casual dining market is challenging at present. A new site model was established to adapt to the current environment, reducing new build costs and giving the brand the ability to open smaller stores. Whilst this work has been necessary, it has meant that the business incurred a number of one-off costs. Combined with the slower than expected maturity of newly opened stores, this led to a deterioration in cashflow. Having taken advice from restructuring experts the company took the decision to pursue a Company Voluntary Arrangement ("CVA"). The proposal was approved with 93% of creditors voting in favour. While negotiations with landlords are ongoing and will be key to building a sustainable business, the company is focusing on initiatives to protect revenues in the current volatile consumer spending environment. Management is focused on achieving a sustainable level of profitability before pursuing an exit opportunity for shareholders.

Quai Administration Services Limited

The Company invested GBP150,000 in Quai in July 2019. Quai's platform administers thousands of individual savings plans at a fraction of the cost incurred by established insurance companies and wealth managers, with the company's compliant and efficient administration systems providing clients with the ability to drive operational efficiencies. Quai's systems focus on the provision of two core administration services: Product Administration for mass-market consumer offerings and Portfolio Administration for private client and portfolio managers. Since Calculus' initial investment, Quai's revenues have grown by nearly 300% (over 30% compound annual growth). Quai now has 11 customers live on its platform including PJMilton, Punter Southall, Digital Moneybox and Tavistock Investments. In the coming year Quai is reviewing the possibility of applying for its own FCA permissions, which would expand the company's range of services, increase margins and reduce reliance on third parties for a key service.

Terrain Energy Limited

Terrain has interests in four production licences and seven exploration licences. Terrain's most promising assets are its 100% owned and operated exploration licences in Germany with recoverable resources estimated at 23 billion cubic feet (bcf) of gas and 3.1 million barrels of oil. Three geothermal wells have been drilled on and adjacent to these licences in recent years targeting water and have made significant hydrocarbon discoveries thus de-risking the assets for Terrain. Terrain's near-term focus is maximising cash flow from its production and development assets in order to support the delivery of its German appraisal blockbuster in the mid-term, but it is not without risk. The Brockham well was tested in June 2019 with the conclusion that oil could not be produced from the Kimmeridge formation at commercial levels. This, alongside continuing operational issues at the Whisby field, has reduced the company's value. The Directors are examining the prospect of an exit event in the short-medium term, depending on market conditions.

Wazoku Limited

Calculus VCT invested GBP300,000 in Wazoku Ltd in April 2019 as part of GBP2.5m investment round. Wazoku has developed a market leading platform and suite of support services to enable firms to innovate at scale. The core product, Idea Spotlight, is a Global Home for Ideas. It is a customisable off-the--shelf solution offering collaborative idea management modules to meet the diverse set of innovation requirements that global businesses have. Successful innovation requires not only capturing ideas, but also collating, analysing and implementing them. The platform provides the process and structure to capture, evolve, evaluate, develop, measure, select and implement the best ideas from internal or external stakeholders. Wazoku has an impressive client list including John Lewis, Aviva, HSBC, Oxford University and Bristol-Myers Squibb.

Weeding Technologies Limited ("Weedingtech")

Weedingtech is a cleantech company focused on replacing toxic herbicides, particularly in the municipal market. Weedingtech's technology treats weed and moss using environmentally friendly hot foam (which keeps the heat on long enough to kill the weed or moss). The last twelve months have seen increased legal and public focus on the use of chemical herbicides, particularly in public areas. There have been a number of very large court awards against Monsanto in relation to the use of glyphosate and an estimated 11,000 further US cases are pending. In April 2019, with Calculus Capital's support, Weedingtech secured a GBP2.2m funding round from a new institutional investor specialising in environmental sustainability. The funds will be used for the continued expansion into the US, sales and marketing and operational improvements.

PRINCIPAL RISKS

The principal risks facing the Company remain the same as those detailed on page 25 of the Annual Report and Accounts for the year ended 28 February 2019.

Brexit is still causing uncertainty however it remains our view that our portfolio companies are not experiencing material difficulties as a result of the political situation.

The main risks faced by the Company include, but are not limited to, loss of approval as a venture capital trust and other regulatory breaches, risks of making and realising qualifying investments, liquidity/marketability risk, changes in legislation/taxation, engagement of third party advisers, market price risk and credit risk.

GOING CONCERN

After making enquiries, and having reviewed the portfolio, balance sheet and projected income and expenditure for the next twelve months, the Directors have a reasonable expectation that the Company has adequate resources to continue in operation for the foreseeable future. The Directors have therefore adopted the going concern basis in preparing these condensed financial statements.

DIRECTORS' RESPONSIBILITY STATEMENT

The half-yearly financial report has been reviewed by the Company's auditors. This report is the responsibility of, and has been approved by, the Directors. The Directors confirm that to the best of their knowledge the half-yearly financial report, which has been prepared in accordance with the UK Listing Authority Disclosure and Transparency Rules ("DTR") and in accordance with the Financial Reporting Council's Financial Reporting Standard 104: 'Interim Financial Reporting' gives a true and fair view of the assets, liabilities, financial position and the net return of the Company as at 31 August 2019.

The Directors confirm that the Chairman's Update, the Investment Management report, the disclosures above and notes 10 and 11, include a fair review of the information required by DTR 4.2.7R, being an indication of important events that have occurred during the first six months of the financial year and their impact on the condensed set of financial statements and a description of the principal risks and uncertainties for the remaining six months of the financial year, and DTR 4.2.8R.

The Standard requires an analysis of investments carried at fair value based on the reliability and significance of the information used to measure their fair value.

In order to provide further information on the valuation techniques used to measure assets carried at fair value, we have categorised the measurement basis into a "fair value hierarchy" as follows:

   -        Quoted market prices in active markets - "Level 1" 

Inputs to Level 1 fair values are quoted prices for identical asset in an active market. Quoted in an active market in this context means quoted prices are readily and regularly available and those prices represent actual and regularly occurring market transactions on an arm's length basis. The quoted price is usually the current bid price. The Company's investments in AIM quoted equities and money market funds are classified within this category.

   -        Valued using models with significant observable market inputs - "Level 2" 

Inputs to Level 2 fair values are inputs other than quoted prices included within Level 1 that are observable for the asset, either directly or indirectly.

   -        Valued using models with significant unobservable market inputs - "Level 3" 

Inputs to Level 3 fair values are unobservable inputs for the asset. Unobservable inputs may have been used to measure fair value to the extent that observable inputs are not available, thereby allowing for situations in which there is little, if any, market activity for the asset at the measurement date (or market information for the inputs to any valuation models). As such, unobservable inputs reflect the assumptions the Company considers that market participants would use in pricing the asset. The Company's unquoted equities and loan stock are classified within this category. Unquoted investments are valued in accordance with the IPEVCA guidelines.
