("Alpha" or the "Company")

EBT, Grant of Options and Total Voting Rights


11 October 2017

Alpha announces that further to details included in the Company's AIM Admission Document it has established an Employee Benefit Trust ("EBT") which has been issued with 343,750 ordinary shares of 0.075 pence per share ("Ordinary Shares") in the Company (the "EBT Shares"), equivalent to approximately 0.34% per cent. of the Company's issued share capital. There will be no voting rights attached to the EBT Shares whilst they are held in the EBT.  These shares are subject to awards under the Company's Joint Share Ownership Plan which forms part of the Management Incentive Plan ("MIP").

In addition, certain employees of Alpha have been granted a total of 2,561,700 options (the "Employee Options"). The Employee Options (i) have a zero exercise price, (ii) will vest after three years, (iii) have a 10 year term, and (iv) in the case of the Employee Options granted to senior employees under the MIP, are subject to certain individual performance conditions.

Following the issue of the EBT Shares and the Employee Options, the Company has 2,905,450 outstanding options and EBT Shares in total, representing approximately 2.85 per cent. of the existing issued share capital of the Company.

Further options or share awards may be made at the discretion of the Company following the date of this announcement, subject to a maximum of 3,395,000 options or share awards having been made in total.

Application will be made for the EBT 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 EBT Shares will commence on or around 17 October 2017 ("Admission").

In accordance with the Financial Conduct Authority's Disclosure and Transparency Rules, the Company hereby announces that following Admission it will have 102,203,333 Ordinary Shares in issue, none of which are held in treasury. The total number of voting rights in the Company is 101,859,583.

The above figure of 101,859,583 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.
