Melrose Chairman invests 6.6m pounds through share purchase

By Benjamin Chiou

Date: Thursday 27 Jun 2013

LONDON (ShareCast) - Industrial investment conglomerate Melrose saw its long-running Chairman invest over six and a half millions pounds in the company this week.

Harris & Sheldon Investments, an investment company connected with Executive Chairman Christopher Miller, purchased 2.76m shares through three transactions between June 24th and June 26th, spending a total of £6.64m.

Miller, who joined the board back in 2003, now has a holding in Melrose of nearly 17m shares (equal to 1.34% of the issued share capital), 6.8m of which is held by Harris & Sheldon.

The transactions came just a few days after Melrose confirmed the sale of motor manufacturing division Marelli Motori for €212m (£181m), a higher price than analysts were estimating.

In a research report last week, broker Investec pointed out that the sale – combined with other disposals this year – increased the likelihood that Melrose could announce a “sizeable” cash return of around 50p a share, possibly by the end of 2013.
