Safe Harbor Statement

This press release contains statements that may constitute "forward-looking" statements pursuant to the "safe harbor" provisions of the U.S. Private Securities Litigation Reform Act of 1995. These forward-looking statements can be identified by terminology such as "will," "expects," "anticipates," "aims," "future," "intends," "plans," "believes," "estimates," "likely to" and similar statements. Management has based these forward-looking statements on its current expectations, assumptions, estimates and projections. While they believe these expectations, assumptions, estimates and projections are reasonable, such forward-looking statements are only predictions and involve known and unknown risks and uncertainties, many of which are beyond management's control. These statements involve risks and uncertainties that may cause Metalpha's actual results, performance or achievements to differ materially from any future results, performance or achievements expressed or implied by these forward-looking statements.

Non-IFRS Financial Measure

The Company uses adjusted loss for the period, which is a non-IFRS financial measure, in evaluating its operating results and for financial and operational decision-making purposes. Metalpha believes that adjusted loss helps identify underlying trends in the Company's business that could otherwise be distorted by the effect of certain expenses that the Company includes in its loss for the period. Metalpha believes that adjusted loss for the period provides useful information about its results of operations, enhances the overall understanding of its past performance and future prospects and allows for greater visibility with respect to key metrics used by its management in its financial and operational decision-making.

Adjusted loss for the period should not be considered in isolation or construed as an alternative to loss for the period or any other measure of performance or as an indicator of its operating performance. Investors are encouraged to review adjusted loss for the period and the reconciliation to its most directly comparable IFRS measure. Adjusted loss for the period presented here may not be comparable to similarly titled measures presented by other companies. Other companies may calculate similarly titled measures differently, limiting their usefulness as comparative measures to the Company's data. Metalpha encourages investors and others to review its financial information in its entirety and not rely on a single financial measure.

Adjusted loss for the period represents profit for the period excluding (i) equity-settled share-based payments under the Company's share award scheme, (ii) share purchase warrants expenses (i.e. expenses in relation to the issuance of warrants to certain consultants, employees and business partners); and (iii) loss from discontinued operation.

The table captioned "Reconciliations of Non-IFRS Measure to the Nearest Comparable IFRS Measure" included at the end of this announcement contains a full reconciliation of adjusted loss for the period to loss for the period.
