Directors dealings: Johnson Matthey finance chief picks up shares

Anna Manz carried out the purchase on 24 November spending a total £69,470.03 in the process.

On 17 November, the outfit said first half pre-tax profits fell 36% to £210m on revenues of £5.6bn, down 2%.

Underlying pre-tax profits on the other hand rose 5% to £219.6m.

The company´s boss, Robert MacLeod, said the firm had a "solid first half, supported by favourable exchange rates, and our health and safety performance improved".
