June  2011,  the Company has completed  a number of successful transactions and in February 2012  agreed  a
lease  on  new  premises of approximately 15,000 square feet, with an option to take further space  in  the
building if required, just over two miles from Bromsgrove Town Centre.

Commenting on the award, Alan Hudson, Chairman and CEO of AFH, said:

"We  are  delighted to have received the award for PLUS Newcomer of the Year at Thursday's  event  held  by
PLUS.  This  accolade highlights our significant achievements since admission last year. It is  also  great
