4 MOVING LANDSCAPE AlphaValue s approach fully reflects changes in the regulatory environment, from MiFID I to II and ongoing regulatory tightening (FCA Fixed price research paid through the fund manager P&L or CSAs has been AlphaValue business model from the start. It naturally protects client money from all possible conflicts of interest and meets a lasting shift in market structure. Best Execution Unbundling MIFID CSA AlphaValue is designed to split at will the written research component from the service content. Both can be paid separately. Service is meant to cover access to the analyst as well as research sales services through partner brokers. The combination of a uniquely broad European coverage and very reasonable fixed terms provides the best value proposition to a stream of winning ideas (please check on Bloomberg ANR) AlphaValue meets current and future regulation protecting client money without cutting on research, associated services and offers uniquely powerful idea generation tools

5 ABOUT THE COMPANY AlphaValue provides research on c European stocks (extract live xls on website please), amongst the biggest by capitalization. Coverage does not stop unless a stock no longer trades. From its inception, AlphaValue has provided European equity research with no preference for a given country. What makes AlphaValue different from other Independent Research Providers 1/ Its demanding production process 2/ Its high quality thanks to unique consistency 3/ Its means, the largest such venture in Europe Such a depth of analysis over close to 500 large European market caps offers a unique point of view over each company through consistent and meaningful comparisons. AlphaValue only relies on its own analysts, only relies on its software and only relies on its own figures AlphaValue is fully Independent Independence through business model : no execution, transaction neutral Independence of recommendations, no Neutral/Hold Independence through ownership : more than 50% owned by its founders and individual shareholders

7 RESEARCH IN DETAIL Each company is scanned in depth, through a structured process In a nutshell A page which brings together the key data to support the recommendation stance Businesses & Trends The challenge is to describe businesses and their trends in a limited number of words and only focus on those issues that impact cash flow generation in a material way. It is a demanding exercise for the analyst as the right balance is hard to find between proper descriptions in terms that are understandable on the one hand and, effective, to the point, comments about trends on the other. Money Making The purpose of this section is to identify key factors to future profit generation. Frequently, this hinges on divisional contributions. This analysis is usually more effective by looking at swings of divisional earnings in currency terms rather than in margin terms. This is why the first table is defaulted to this analytical dimension. Debt These tables aim at providing more detailed information on debt financing. Useful debt information is only available for non financial stocks with a breakdown by maturity and profile. This helps provide liquidity measures. For Banks and Insurances, the link is with ad hoc Risks measures : Solvency and gearing for Insurers; Tier 1 and liquidity for banks. Valuation Peers DCF NAV/SOTP Valuation processes have been organized around transparency and consistency as primary objectives. Stocks belong to different categories that recognise their main operating features : Banks, Insurers and Non Financials. Within those three universes, the valuation techniques are the same and in relation to the financial data available. The weighting given to individual valuation techniques is managed centrally and may be changed from time to time. As a rule, all stocks of a similar profile are valued using equivalent weighting of the various valuation techniques. This is for obvious consistency reasons. Financials Find all of the company s financial statements via over 250 quantitative results. With forecasts for the next three years. All of the figures published may contain notes and comments from the analyst. Pension Risks Pension liabilities are an immense subject, with indeed arid accounting issues made worse by arid terms. For these reasons, they are understated. This is a mistake, as pension liabilities may account for more than 10% of shareholders' funds, sometimes wipe out the equity base altogether, are inescapable and, sadly, here to stay. AlphaValue offers a home-grown model to help investors find their way in a ridiculously complex field in accounting terms. Governance & Management This section summarizes information about management and executive directors, and find out about the compensation paid to each member and their level of independence. By-laws are evaluated according to the respect of minority shareholders interests. Worth Knowing Equity research does not limit its scope to hard facts. There are intuitions, links that can be made between situations, corporates or men, all sorts of information which when correctly assembled may generate useful additional understanding. This is the point of this section. It may be empty. Graphics Tra-cea-bi-li-ty. For the first time users can see the analyst s past recommendations and target prices in a snapshot, providing a new kind of transparency. They can also use traditional technical tool (Momentum, Macd, Bollinger...). A pair trade module is also available to compare stocks and backtesting ratios.

9 BENEFITS ALPHA CAPTURE COMPREHENSIVE ANALYSIS STRICT VALUATIONS TIME SAVING Systematic Alpha Capture with a Target Price Updated Daily Equity Research based on Genuine Fundamental Analysis Single valuation process for robust decision-making Extract Stocks Lists with our intuitive data crunching tools Acountable Research Process We hold the view that an analyst s job is to start with careful and challenging reading of all material released by a given corporate, fill up a demanding spreadsheet focused on tracking down cash generation, use strict and transparent valuation processes, and then, and only then, put "on paper" the key words summing up his views. Consistent Macro Inputs Standardised Accounting Grids Uniform Valuation Templates The drive for quality stems from the conviction that consistency across a very large coverage is a powerful tool for quality equity research. Robust Comparisons Real-Time Valuation Traceability Idea Generation Driven
