Volta Finance Limited: VOLTA FINANCE - ANNOUNCEMENT OF AN EGM TO BE HELD ON 6 MAY 2015 TO CONSIDER CHANGES TO INVESTMENT POLICY

NOT FOR RELEASE, DISTRIBUTION OR PUBLICATION, IN WHOLE OR IN PART, IN OR INTO
THE UNITED STATES

****
Guernsey, 31 March 2015

Volta Finance Limited (the "Company
") today announces that an Extraordinary General Meeting of the Company will
be held at 14:00 p.m. (BST) on 6 May 2015 (the "EGM
"). The Company has published a circular containing Notice of the EGM, a copy
of which is available on the Company's website atwww.voltafinance.com.

The EGM will be held at 14:00 p.m. (UK time) on 6 May 2015 at Third Floor, La
Plaiderie Chambers, La Plaiderie, St Peter Port, Guernsey, GY1 1WG, Channel
Islands.

As announced on 12 February 2015, in order to comply with the eligibility
criteria for listing on the Official List of the UK Listing Authority (the
"Official List
"), certain changes are required to be made to the Company's investment
policy. These changes remove the Board's discretion on investment limits in
different asset classes and individual assets.

Shareholders will be given the opportunity to vote on the changes to the
Company's investment policy at the EGM. The resolution on which shareholders
will be asked to vote is set out in the Notice of the EGM. If approved at the
EGM, the changes to the Company's investment policy will be effective
immediately following the EGM.

Should the changes to the Company's investment policy not be approved by
Shareholders, the Company will not be eligible for admission to listing on
the Official List or trading on the Main Market of the London Stock Exchange
plc (the "Main Market
"). The Board therefore encourages all Shareholders to vote in favour of these
changes to ensure that the London Stock Exchange listing process can proceed
without delay.

The admission of the Company to listing on the Official List and to trading on
the Main Market is expected to take place in late May 2015. The proposed
changes to the Company's investment policy in no way affect Shareholders'
ability to trade their shares and exit their investment in the Company in the
usual way.

The results of the EGM are expected to be released immediately following the
EGM.
