Alpha Broking Ltd - Waarschuwing FSC Bulgaria - 2015-Apr-07


The Bulgarian Financial Supervision Commission (FSC) warns the public that company ALPHA
BROKING LTD is not licensed by the FSC and hence is not eligible to provide investment services
and activities under the Markets in Financial Instruments Act as well as under the Law on the
Activities of Collective Investment Schemes and Other Collective Investment Undertakings on the
territory of the Republic of Bulgaria, including through electronic platforms for trading with
financial instruments.

The name of the company ALPHA BROKING LTD (in Bulgarian „Алфа Брокинг" ЕООД) resembles
the name of the brokerage firm Alpha Broking, licensed investment firm by the Australian
Securities and Investments Commission. The potential investors should bear in mind that ALPHA
BROKING LTD is NOT the same company as ALPHA BROKING.

It is also important to be noted that the headquarter address and the management address of ALPHA
BROKING LTD is identical with the address of the firm GLOBAL MARKETS LTD. (current name
INTERACTIVE COMPANY LTD.) The license of GLOBAL MARKETS LTD. for conducting activity as an
investment firm has been compulsorily revoked by the FSC with Decision No 651 – II, dated July
14th, 2014 on the grounds of committed by GLOBAL MARKETS LTD. and its employees systematic
violations of the Markets and Financial Instruments Act and its implementing acts. The FSC’s
decision for the license revocation was confirmed by the Supreme Administrative Court.

provided only from licensed by FSC companies to perform activity as an investment firm or a

activities in accordance with EU legislation by the competent authority in the relevant Member
State may carry out the activity for which the license has been issued on the territory of Republic

only be provided together with an investment service and/or activity.

In regard to the above mentioned, the investors should have in mind that:
