As far as I could see - not a whisper of reducing the bid-offer spread in Oxford Technology 3, but much more concern about sheltering long-deferred CGT.

And as I should have added - the AGM resolutions allow a vote on a winding up (or not) of the VCT, but do not allow a vote on a tender offer.
Yet a tender offer, at a sensible discount to NAV (not more than 10%) should allow an exit for long suffering (non deferrer) shareholders, while still allowing a remaining shelter for the CGT deferrers.

Various news sites are reporting that on 23rd September Oxford Technology 3 VCT (OTT) announced that following the successful sale of IXaris, a dividend of 6p per share will be paid on 15th October. I cannot find any mention of this on the Oxford Technology VCT site, nor can I find any RNS. However the Hargreaves Lansdown site states that OTT has declared a dividend of 6p, with an ex-div date of 30/9/21, and a payment date of 15/10/21.
The news reports also state that OTT are planning a (limited) share buy back at 10% to NAV .

Thanks for the RNS - but where did you find it? Still no sign of it on the Oxford Technology VCT, London South East, and Hargreaves Lansdown sites. .

Half Yearly report (to 31st August) from Oxford Technology 3

https://www.oxfordtechnologyvct.com/admin/jscripts/tiny_mce/plugins/filemanager/files/news/OT3_Interims_2021.pdf

At 31st August, 65% of NAV was invested in two AIM Listed Companies - Arecor and Scancell. The other 6 unquoted investments amounted to 8% of NAV, while Other Assets (sale of IXaris) amounted to 27%. A Dividend of 6p per share will be paid tomorrow, which amounts to 12.8% of the August 31 NAV.

Thanks Scotia, the report also provided details of the forthcoming share buyback, see below:
https://www.oxfordtechnologyvct.com/adm ... s_2021.pdf

The Directors have announced a 6p per share interim capital dividend to be paid on 15 October 2021 thereby returning a substantial portion of the Ixaris proceeds to shareholders. They are also pleased to have announced a small share buyback at a discount of 10% to the half year NAV adjusted for the dividend, the movement in the Arecor share price and any further major changes. This will allow shareholders to have an opportunity of an economic exit. Shareholders who wish to participate should take their own financial advice and, if interested, register with Chris Lloyd at Panmure Gordon chris.lloyd@panmure.com. It is anticipated that the buyback will occur in early November. In the event of a potential take up in excess of 10%, the Directors will agree an equitable scale back mechanism with Panmure Gordon.

I will opt out from participating in the the share buyback as I do not wish to reduce my exposure of the two largest portfolio holdings (Scancell and Arecor)

On the subject of Arecor, it is worth noting that they have come out with a number of positive announcements since the IPO back in June which have helped propel the share price higher, this prompted OT3 to issue an RNS on their portfolio on September 24th
https://www.investegate.co.uk/oxford-te ... 4534H8786/

The latest Arecor announcement (last Monday) is probably the most intriguing:
https://www.investegate.co.uk/arecor-th ... 18076478O/

This concerned a ruling in favour of Arecor against GSK at the European patent office after GSK had (twice) tried to get one of Arecor’s patents revoked. The patent in question concerned stabilisation of Polysaccharide vaccines. GSK have a large business in vaccines and a number of these vaccines are polysaccharide vaccines so there are good reasons for why they would not want this sort of technology ending up in the wrong hands, it will be intriguing to see if GSK will now take any further steps which would most likely involve a licencing deal, but there must also be an outside chance that they could make an offer for the company.

Arecor’s share price responded positively to the news and now stands at 410p (mid price) and with each 100p change in Arecor's share price corresponding to a 4.4p change in NAV of OT3, Arecor now contributes approximately 18p/share towards the OT3 NAV.
