(' Alpha FMC ', 'Alpha', the 'Company' or ' 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 22 July 2020, the Company granted 3,293,836 Management Incentive Plan ("MIP") awards to its management team globally, comprising 2,079,071 UK Joint Share Ownership Plan ("JSOP") awards and 1,214,765 MIP share options. In addition, the Company granted 72,064 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.

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) relevant country or divisional FY 21 budgetary performance targets, (ii) individual sales, delivery excellence and behavioural targets, and (iii) total shareholder return of a basket of comparable companies over three years, as applicable.

Of the total 2,079,071 JSOP Share awards, 2,019,029 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, 1,930,381 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 28 July 2020.

On 22 July 2020, the Company bought back 88,648 Ordinary Shares from prior employees ("Reclaimed Shares") for nominal value. All of the Reclaimed Shares and 60,042 shares already held in the EBT will be used to satisfy

the balance of the 2,079,071   JSOP Share awards not issued as New Ordinary Shares. 

Following the JSOP Shares, MIP and EIP share option awards, the Company will have 9,717,925 outstanding MIP and EIP share options and JSOP Shares in total, representing approximately 9.21 per cent of the issued share capital of the Company. Within this total, 9,151,137 MIP options and JSOP Share awards are outstanding, including the 3,293,836 MIP options and JSOP Shares awarded on 22 July 2020. Total MIP options and JSOP Share awards outstanding represent approximately 8.67 per cent of the issued share capital of the Company, of which approximately 3.12 per cent was awarded on 22 July 2020.

As set out in the Company's 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 22 July 2020 MIP award grants, 329,294 have been granted to Euan Fraser and 126,652 have been granted to John Paton, both persons discharging managerial responsibilities ("PDMRs"). Following the grant of the MIP awards, Euan Fraser holds 865,637 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 268,890 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 105,538,019 Ordinary Shares in issue, of which none are held in Treasury. The total number of voting rights in the Company is 100,849,561.

The above figure of 100,849,561 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.
