May 27 14
The board of Artemis VCT PLC has declared an interim capital dividend of 2.00 pence per share (2013 - 2.00 pence per share). Following an increase in the levels of cash held by the Company as a result of the disposals highlighted above, the investment manager has indicated that there are limited suitable opportunities to invest this cash balance at the current time. The board has therefore concluded that the interests of shareholders are best served by returning cash to them and accordingly has also declared a special capital dividend of 2.00 pence per share. Both of these dividends will be paid on 27 June 2014 to those shareholders on the register on 6 June 2014 and will result in cumulative dividends paid since launch totaling 35.20 pence per share.
