Intermediaries Offer and Placing

Aurora Investment Trust plc (the "Company") has today launched an intermediaries offer and a placing pursuant to the Placing Programme of new ordinary shares of 25 pence each (the "Ordinary Shares") targeting minimum gross proceeds of £2 million (the "Issue"). 

The Issue has been proposed by the Directors to increase the size of the Company and in turn give it a larger equity base over which to spread fixed costs while also improving the liquidity and marketability of the Ordinary Shares.

The new Ordinary Shares will be issued using the Company's existing share authority which was obtained at its general meeting held on 6 June 2018.
