(ShareCast News) - Capita's chairman, Sir Ian Powell bought some shares in the process solutions outsourcer on 28 June.
Powell picked up 3,000 shares at an individual price of 701p for a total disbursement of £21,015.00, the company said in a statement published the next day.

He took up his post on 1 January 2017, in replacement of Martin Bolland.

On 29 June, analysts at HSBC revised their target price on Capita's shares from 590p to 820p and upgraded their recommendation from 'hold' to 'buy'.

Its analysts recommended that Capita's yet-to-be-named new chief executive lay out plans to simplify its business and to deliver upon them.

"Capita is a good business, it creates process solutions for the public and the private sector, and there will be demand. Focus on de-cluttering, simplifying, and understanding the risks inherent in long contracts, and complex accounting," the broker said.

Linked to the above, on 13 June the outsourcer reported "good progress" on its restructuring and said the turnaround of its IT Services was progressing better than expected, three months after its chief executive resigned and the outsourcing group was dumped out of the FTSE 100.

The search for a new chief was still at the final shortlist phase, Capita said then, but the new divisional management was bedding down well.
