Puma VCT 12

Closed for investment


Net Asset Value at period end (including dividends paid)

Launched in August 2015, Puma VCT 12 was established with the intention that it would have a limited life. As stated in the Company's prospectus dated 14 October 2015 and in the Company's interim report for the six months ended 31 August 2021, it was envisaged that the Board would convene a General Meeting of the Company following its fifth anniversary at which resolutions would be proposed to place the Company into members' solvent liquidation.

However, in light of the Covid-19 outbreak, it was likely that a number of potential exits from portfolio companies would be delayed until there was a greater degree of economic certainty. The Board has kept this under regular review and given the greater economic certainty as we have emerged from the Covid-19 pandemic, as well as the Company’s sales of its investments in Tictrac and SEN, the Board has agreed to progress the liquidation process.

Cancellation of the listing of the Company's Shares on the Official List of the Financial Conduct Authority took place on 24 June 2022, and subsequently shares ceased trading on the London Stock Exchange.
