   Kings Arms Yard VCT PLC Interim Management Statement 
 
   LEI Code 213800DK8H27QY3J5R45 
 
   Introduction 
 
   I am pleased to present Kings Arms Yard VCT PLC's (the "Company") 
interim management statement for the period from 1 July 2020 to 30 
September 2020. 
 
   Performance and dividends 
 
   The Company's unaudited net asset value (NAV) as at 30 September 2020 
was GBP77.58 million or 20.71 pence per share (excluding treasury 
shares), an increase of 0.41 pence per share (2.0 per cent.) since 30 
June 2020. 
 
   After accounting for the dividend paid of 0.51 pence per share on 30 
October 2020 to shareholders on the register on 2 October 2020, the NAV 
is 20.20 pence per share. 
 
   Share buy-backs 
 
   During the period from 1 July 2020 to 30 September 2020, the Company 
purchased 1,705,566 shares for GBP331,000 at an average price of 19.29 
pence per share. All of the shares are to be held in treasury. 
 
   It remains the Board's policy to buy back shares in the market, subject 
to the overall constraint that such purchases are in the Company's 
interest, including the maintenance of sufficient resources for 
investment in existing and new portfolio companies and the continued 
payment of dividends to shareholders. The level of share buybacks for 
the sixth month period to 31 December 2020 will be limited to GBP1 
million. 
 
   It is the Board's intention for such buy-backs to be at around a 5 per 
cent. discount to net asset value, so far as market conditions and 
liquidity permit.
