8 APRIL 2013

NORTHERN VENTURE TRUST PLC ("the Company")

ISSUE OF EQUITY AND TOTAL VOTING RIGHTS

The Company announces that on 8 April 2013 it allotted to 38 subscribers 424,772 ordinary shares
of 25p each under the 2013/14 Offer for Subscription.  The new ordinary shares were issued at
prices between 89.545550 pence per share and 93.335820 pence per share.  

Application will be made at the earliest practicable opportunity for these shares, which will rank
pari passu with existing ordinary shares, to be admitted to the Official List of the UK Listing
Authority and to trading on the London Stock Exchange's market for listed securities.

In conformity with the Transparency Directive, the Company notifies the market that the capital of
the Company consists of 75,682,112 ordinary shares with a nominal value of 25p each.  All the
shares have voting rights.

The Company does not hold any ordinary shares in treasury.

Therefore, the total number of voting rights in the Company is 75,682,112 (the "Figure").

The Figure may be used by a shareholder or other person as the denominator for the calculations by
which he will determine if he is required to notify the voting rights he holds in relation to the
Company, or a change to those voting rights, under the FSA's Disclosure Rules and Transparency
Rules.
