Boohoo chief exec pockets £10.7m in share sale
(ShareCast News) - The joint chief executive officer of online fashion retailer Boohoo.com has sold 4.65m shares in the company at an average price of 230p per share.
Following the transaction on Wednesday, in which she pocketed just under £10.7m, Carol Kane will retain a stake of around 4%.
On Thursday, non-executive director Pierre Cuilleret picked up 100,000 ordinary shares at 204.8p each, giving him an interest of 0.01% in the company.
Shares in the Nasty Gal and Pretty Little Thing owner slumped on Wednesday despite the company doubling its first-half sales, beating profit forecasts and upgrading full-year guidance, with investors seemingly miffed that investment in the business is leading to slightly lower margins.
At 1055 BST, the shares were down 9.9% to 196.50p.
