Update on realisation of assets

The investment manager has continued the realisation of the Company's more liquid investments. The Company is pleased to announce that cash now forms c.74% of the portfolio as at 9 October 2020. This figure includes trades expected to settle imminently, with a value of c.8% of NAV. The investment manager expects that the Company's cash level will rise to c.79% by mid-November 2020.

As previously announced, the Board has been giving consideration as to how best to make a return of cash to shareholders. Given the high percentage of cash in the portfolio, the Company currently intends to put forward proposals for the liquidation of the Company, and for the distribution of this cash shortly after the appointment of the liquidators, with further payments following as the remaining investments are sold. The investment manager would be engaged to assist the liquidators in the process of realisation of assets remaining unsold at the time of their appointment.

The Company intends to publish a circular seeking the necessary shareholder approval for the liquidation, in which it will set out the benefits and costs of the proposal, the timetable and an update on the disposal of the remaining portfolio.

A further announcement will be made in due course.
