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

There will be no voting rights attached to the JSOP Shares whilst they are held in the JSOP. 

22,883 of the 57,207 MIP awards granted today have been granted to John Paton. Following the grant of the MIP awards, John Paton will hold 54,133 JSOP Shares and John Paton and his immediate family will be beneficially interested in 37,639 ordinary shares of 0.075 pence in the Company ("Ordinary Shares") representing 0.04% of the Company's total voting rights.

Further, the Company also bought back today 333,679 Ordinary Shares from prior employees ("Reclaimed Shares") for nominal value.  Of the Reclaimed Shares, 279,740 Ordinary Shares are held in Treasury and the remaining Ordinary Shares have been used to satisfy the above JSOP awards. No new Ordinary Shares have been issued by the Company. 

Following the JSOP Share award grants the Company will have 3,199,637 outstanding share options and JSOP Shares in total, representing approximately 3.14 per cent. of the issued share capital of the Company.  Within this total, 2,906,194 MIP options or JSOP Share awards are outstanding. 

Further options or share awards made at the discretion of the Company following the date of this announcement are subject to a maximum of 3,395,000 MIP options or share awards in total until after the FY19 results announcement, as set out in the AIM Admission Document.
