The Acquisition will contribute a profit before tax after management expenses and admin expenses and Oberon is focused on providing a seamless transfer of investment management services to investors in the Nexus EIS Fund.


The Nexus EIS Fund has a 15-company strong portfolio across Digital, Data, EdTech and Health which strengthens Oberon's offering to investors who wish to benefit from Enterprise Investment Scheme tax relief ('EIS') and companies seeking EIS investment. The Acquisition of the Nexus EIS Fund will augment Oberon's existing 'Oberon EIS Fund' and complements our offer to growing companies seeking investment through Oberon Capital and Oberon Private Ventures divisions, thus further enhancing Oberon's expertise in these verticals.


An application will be made to the Aquis Stock Exchange ("Aquis") for the 7.5m new ordinary shares to be admitted to trading. Admission is expected to take place, and dealings on Aquis in the ordinary shares is expected to commence, at 08:00 on or around 21 December 2023.
