Director dealings: Hilton Food chairman offloads shares

By Iain Gilbert

Date: Thursday 09 May 2019

LONDON (ShareCast) - (Sharecast News) - Hilton Food Group chairman Robert Watson sold 65,242 ordinary shares in the FTSE 250-listed food packing business on Thursday.
Watson, who exercised options over the shares as part of Hilton\'s long-term investment plan earlier in the day, disposed of the shares at an average price of 1,024p each, for a total value of £668,078.

Hilton Food posted a jump in full-year profit and revenue back in March as volumes were boosted by the integration of Seachill and the new shellfish business.

In the year to 30 December 2018, adjusted pre-tax profit rose 22.2% to £45.7m on revenue of £1.65bn, up 21.5%. Meanwhile, volume was up 13.5% to 344,784 tonnes, driven by a full year\'s contribution from chilled fish supplier Seachill, which it bought back in 2017, and its Australian operations.

As of 1620 BST, Hilton shares had slipped 2.54% to 998p.
