Directors dealings: Hikma's Said Darwazah buys £4.32m of shares

By Andrew Schonberg

Date: Friday 26 Aug 2016

LONDON (ShareCast) - (ShareCast News) - Hikma Pharmaceuticals chairman and chief executive Said Darwazah has splashed on £4.32m worth of the firm's shares, just a day after they dived on comments from US presidential hopeful Hillary Clinton.
Darwazah, whose father founded the company, paid 2160p a share, snaffling 200,000 of them. At about 18:03 BST, shares in Hikma were up 1.49% to 2182p.

On Thursday, Clinton and several senators spoke out against pharmaceutical pricing by drug companies, denting their shares in London and in the US.

A day earlier, on Wednesday, Hikma reported a jump in first-half revenues but a drop in operating profit, as it reiterated its full-year revenue guidance.

In the six months to the end of June, core revenue rose to $882m from $709m, but operating profit slipped to $176m from $204m due to a lower contribution from specific market opportunities for the generics business compared with the first half of 2015.

The company declared an interim dividend of 11 cents per share, in line with the dividend in the same period last year.
