Christopher Mills Joins Board of Directors of Gabelli Value Plus+ Trust Plc


Gabelli UK is pleased to announce that the Board of Directors of the
Gabelli Value Plus+ Trust plc (LSE:GVP) have appointed
Christopher Mills as a non-executive director of the Company effective
15 August 2018.

"We are delighted with the appointment. Mr. Mills is an experienced
investor, business owner and entrepreneur, and complementary to the GVP
Board of Directors. I am sure Mr. Mills will offer distinct insights as
we grow shareholder value utilizing the Gabelli Private Market Value
with CatalystTM method. He should serve the shareholders
well," said Robert Leininger, CFA, Gabelli investment team member.

Mr. Mills founded Harwood Capital Management in 2011, a successor from
its former parent company JO Hambro Capital Management, which he
co-founded in 1993. He is investment manager of North Atlantic Smaller
Companies Investment Trust plc and is non-executive director of a number
of companies, including Augean plc, EKF Diagnostics Holdings plc, Goals
Soccer Centres plc, Journey Group plc, Ten Entertainment Group plc and
MJ Gleeson plc. Previously, Mr. Mills was a director of Invesco MIM,
where he was head of North American investments and venture capital, and
of Samuel Montagu International.

Gabelli Funds are active, bottom up, value investors, and seek to
achieve real capital appreciation (relative to inflation) over the long
term, regardless of market cycles. We achieve returns through investing
in businesses utilizing our proprietary Private Market Value ("PMV")
with a Catalyst™ methodology. PMV is the value that we believe an
informed buyer would be willing to pay to acquire an entire company in a
private transaction. Gabelli portfolios are constructed agnostic of
market capitalisation and index weightings and are not index
benchmarked. We have invested this way since 1977.
