PDMR share award vesting and exercise, and total voting rights

Alpha FMC (AIM: AFM), a leading global provider of specialist consultancy services to the asset management, wealth management and insurance industries, announces that on 13 December 2021, 22,883 Joint Share Ownership Plan ("JSOP") awards granted in December 2018 have vested following the satisfaction of performance conditions.

These are awards held by John Paton, Chief Financial Officer and a Person Discharging Managerial Responsibilities ("PDMR"), and the awards' performance conditions, relating to earnings per share growth, total shareholder return exceeding a basket of comparable companies and behavioral criteria, were met in full. As a result, 22,883 nominal cost awards over ordinary shares of 0.075 pence per share in the Company ('Ordinary Shares') vested.

The vested awards have been exercised in full and the Company will satisfy these exercised awards using existing shares held in the Alpha Employee Benefit Trust ("EBT"). After this exercise, John Paton holds 329,830 MIP options and JSOP Shares and he and his immediate family are beneficially interested in 60,522 Ordinary Shares representing 0.05% of the Company's total voting rights.

Following the above transaction, the Company will have 118,238,586, Ordinary Shares in issue, of which 6,243,770 are held in the Company's Employee Benefit Trust. No shares are held in treasury. The total number of voting rights in the Company will therefore be 111,994,816, which 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 Guidance and Transparency Rules.
