(ShareCast News) - Meggitt's Engineering Director added to his holdings via his wife after exercising his share awards under the company's equity participation plan.
Chris Allen was awarded a total of 64,226 through three grants dating from August 2009 to August 2011.

On 3 April he sold 30,248 of those shares to cover tax and costs, handing over the remaining 33,978 to his wife, the company said in a statement.

As a result of the transaction, his stake in the manufacturer of specialised components for the extreme environments and subsystems for the aerospace, defence and energy markets increased by 0.03% to 197,640 shares.

For the year to the end of December, the company posted statutory pre-tax profit down 7% to £195.5m while underlying pre-tax profit rose 13% to £352.1m with revenues ahead to £1.99bn from £1.65bn the year before.

A a few days later, on 2 March, analysts at Citi handed the shares a 'Neutral' recommendation with a 500.0p target price attached, up from 410.0p previously.

Analysts Devang Doshi and Charles J.Armitage said the outfit's full-year 2016 figures revealed initial signs that management would be able to deliver on its targets to boost its margins by between 200 and 250 basis points and cut its inventory by more than £200.0m.
