Alpha Financial Markets Consulting plc

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

Issue of new shares, vesting 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 on 12 October 2020, certain of the Management Incentive Plan ("MIP") awards granted at the time of the October 2017 AIM admission partially vested following satisfaction of performance conditions.

The awards' performance conditions relating to EPS growth and total shareholder return exceeding a basket of comparable companies over three years to 12 October 2020 were met in full and the relevant local country or divisional budgetary performance conditions were met in full or part dependant on Alpha location. As a result, 1,812,500 nil or nominal cost awards over ordinary shares of 0.075 pence per share in the Company ("Ordinary Shares") vested.

Of these vested awards, 1,031,250 awards have been exercised. The Company will settle these exercised awards, some net settled after taxes due, by issuing 983,947 Ordinary Shares (the "New Ordinary Shares") . Application has been made for these 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 20 October 2020. The remaining vested award holders have a further 7-year period in which to exercise their vested awards.

Of the vested awards, 250,000 relate to awards held by Euan Fraser, a person discharging managerial responsibilities ("PDMR"), of which all have been exercised. After exercising these vested awards, Euan Fraser holds 615,637 MIP options and JSOP Shares awards and he and his immediate family are beneficially interested in 1,606,081 Ordinary Shares representing 1.58% of the Company's total voting rights.

On 14 October 2020, the Company bought back 137,482 Ordinary Shares from prior employees ("Reclaimed Shares") for nominal value. All of the Reclaimed Shares will be held in the EBT for the satisfaction of future employee awards.

In accordance with the Financial Conduct Authority's Disclosure and Transparency Rules, following the above the Company has 106,521,966 Ordinary Shares in issue, of which none are held in Treasury. The total number of voting rights in the Company is 101,696,026. This figure of 101,696,026 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.
