Brickability Group Insider Transactions Over The Last Year

The Member of Management Board & MD of Crest Group Arnold Van Huet made the biggest insider purchase in the last 12 months. That single transaction was for UK£100k worth of shares at a price of UK£0.81 each. That means that even when the share price was higher than UK£0.78 (the recent price), an insider wanted to purchase shares. It's very possible they regret the purchase, but it's more likely they are bullish about the company. To us, it's very important to consider the price insiders pay for shares. Generally speaking, it catches our eye when an insider has purchased shares at above current prices, as it suggests they believed the shares were worth buying, even at a higher price. The only individual insider to buy over the last year was Arnold Van Huet.
