Alpha Financial Markets Consulting plc

('Alpha FMC' or the 'Company' or the 'Group')

Issue of new shares, grant of incentive awards, PDMR dealing

and total voting rights

Alpha FMC (AIM: AFM), a leading global provider of specialist consultancy services to the Asset and Wealth Management industry announces that the Company has made a grant of staff incentive awards.

On 18 June 2019, the Company granted 3,132,572 Management Incentive Plan ("MIP") awards to its management team globally, comprising 2,144,742 UK Joint Share Ownership Plan ("JSOP") awards and 987,830 MIP share options. In addition, the Company granted 186,235 awards to employees by way of Employee Incentive Plan ("EIP") share options and RSU awards. There will be no voting rights attached to the JSOP Shares whilst they are held in the JSOP.

Consistent with previous awards, these JSOP Shares, MIP and EIP share options (i) have a nominal or nil consideration, (ii) will vest after three to five years, (iii) have a 10 year term, and (iv) are subject to certain individual or Group performance conditions. The MIP and JSOP Share awards performance conditions include: (i) 10 per cent growth of Group Adjusted EPS in the year ended 31 March 2020 ("FY 20") from the prior year, (ii) total shareholder return criteria over the three years to 31 March 2022, and (iii) local FY 20 budgetary performance, as applicable.

A total of 2,144,742 ordinary shares of 0.075 pence per share in the Company ("Ordinary Shares") will be issued to Alpha's Employee Benefit Trust ("EBT") in relation to the JSOP Share awards (the "EBT Shares"). Of these EBT Shares 1,632,764 Ordinary Shares (the "New Ordinary Shares") will be issued by the Company. Application has been made for the New Ordinary Shares, which will rank pari passu with the Company's existing issued Ordinary Shares, to be admitted to trading on AIM. It is expected that admission will become effective and that trading in the New Ordinary Shares will commence on or around 24 June 2019.

On 18 June 2019, the Company bought back 124,238 Ordinary Shares from prior employees ("Reclaimed Shares") for nominal value. All of the Reclaimed Shares, along with a further 387,740 Ordinary Shares that are currently held in Treasury, will be used to satisfy the balance of the 2,144,742 JSOP Share awards not issued as New Ordinary Shares.

Following the JSOP Shares, MIP and EIP share option awards, the Company will have 6,512,562 outstanding MIP and EIP share options and JSOP Shares in total, representing approximately 6.29 per cent of the issued share capital of the Company. Within this total, 5,996,378 MIP options and JSOP Share awards are outstanding, including the 3,132,572 MIP options and JSOP Shares awarded on 18 June 2019. Total MIP options and JSOP Share awards outstanding represent approximately 5.79 per cent of the issued share capital of the Company, of which approximately 3.02 per cent was awarded on 18 June 2019.

As set out in the AIM Admission Document, no more than 10 per cent of the total share capital of the Company from time to time shall be subject to unvested JSOP Shares, Options and RSUs that are granted under the MIP.

Of the 18 June MIP award grants, 286,343 have been granted to Euan Fraser and 88,105 have been granted to John Paton, both persons discharging managerial responsibilities ("PDMRs"). Following the grant of the MIP awards, Euan Fraser holds 536,343 MIP options and JSOP Shares awards and he and his immediate family are beneficially interested in 1,356,081 Ordinary Shares representing 1.34% of the Company's total voting rights. Also, further to the grant of the MIP awards, John Paton holds 142,238 JSOP Shares and he and his immediate family are beneficially interested in 37,639 Ordinary Shares representing 0.04% of the Company's total voting rights.

In accordance with the Financial Conduct Authority's Disclosure and Transparency Rules, following the above the Company has 103,607,638 Ordinary Shares in issue, of which none are held in Treasury. The total number of voting rights in the Company is 100,986,690.

The above figure of 100,986,690 may be used by shareholders in the Company as the denominator for the calculations by which they will determine if they are required to notify their interest in, or a change in their interest in, the share capital of the Company under the FCA's Disclosure and Transparency Rules.
