Unaudited Net Asset Value and Proposed Final Dividend
The Directors of Maven Income and Growth VCT 3 PLC ("the Company") confirm that the unaudited net asset value of the Company as at 30 November 2022 was 57.32p per Ordinary Share.
The Directors propose that a final dividend of 1.90p per Ordinary Share, in respect of the year ended 30 November 2022, be paid on 26 April 2023 to Shareholders on the register at close of business on 24 March 2023.
As Shareholders will be aware from recent Annual and Interim Reports, decisions on distributions take into consideration a number of factors, including the availability of surplus revenue, the realisation of capital gains, the adequacy of distributable reserves and the VCT qualifying level. The Board and the Manager recognise the importance of tax-free distributions to Shareholders and, subject to the conditions set out above, will seek, as a guide, to pay an annual dividend that represents 5% of the NAV per share at the immediately preceding year end. This final dividend will bring total distributions for the financial year to 3.15p per Ordinary Share, representing an annual yield of 5.04%.
Since the Company's launch, and after receipt of this final dividend, 97.07p per share will have been distributed in tax-free dividends. It should be noted that the effect of paying dividends is to reduce the NAV of the Company by the total cost of the distribution.
Dividend Investment Scheme
The Company has in place a Dividend Investment Scheme (DIS) through which Shareholders may elect to have their dividend payments used to apply for new Ordinary Shares issued by the Company under the standing authority requested from Shareholders at Annual General Meetings. Shares issued under the DIS should qualify for VCT tax reliefs applicable for the tax year in which they are allotted, subject to an individual Shareholder's particular circumstances. Terms & conditions of the scheme, together with a mandate form, are available from the Company's website at: mavencp.com/migvct3.
Shareholders who have not previously applied to participate in the DIS and who wish to do so in respect of the dividend payable on 26 April 2023, should ensure that a mandate form is received by the Company's Registrar, The City Partnership (UK) Limited, prior to the dividend election date of 12 April 2023. Election to participate in the DIS can also be made through the Registrar's online investor hub at: maven-cp.cityhub.uk.com.
Further to the information disclosed above, the Directors confirm that they are satisfied that all inside information (as defined by Article 7 of the Market Abuse Regulation (596/2014/EU)) that the Directors and the Company may have in their possession relating to the Company during the 30 day closed period leading up to the announcement of its annual results for the year ended 30 November 2022 has been or will be notified to a regulatory information service.
