Ashtead directors sell vested shares

By Natasha Roberts

Date: Tuesday 29 Jul 2014

LONDON (ShareCast) - Four directors, including the Chief Executive, at industrial rental group Ashtead Group on Monday sold a total of 826,682 following their vesting the same day.

Company Chief Geoff Drabble traded in 406,176 shares, which were awarded in 2011 under the group's performance share plan. With a disposal price of 934p the sale generated £3.79m.

Finance Director Suzanne Wood earned £1.95m after trading in 208,805 shares at the same price.

Divisional Chief Executives Brendan Horgan and Sat Dhaiwal sold 163,049 and 130,641 shares, respectively.

It comes a month after the group reported that profits had flown higher than record levels in the year to April 30th, helping earnings beat expectations comfortably.

The UK-headquartered company, whose larger US business is seen as a play on the slow-burning US non-residential construction recovery, lifted underlying revenues 24% to £1.48bn and earnings before interest, tax, depreciation and amortisation (EBITDA) 34% to £685.1m.
