The company is targeting a net asset value total return per share of between 8 -10% per annum following the full investment of the net initial proceeds.
Pantheon is also aiming for an initial dividend of at least 2p per ordinary share in the ﬁrst ﬁnancial year ending 31 December 2022, rising to 4p per ordinary share for the financial year ending 31 December 2023 and, thereafter, a progressive dividend.
The company intends to pay dividends on a semi-annual basis.
