Director dealings: DiscoverIE CEO lowers stake

(Sharecast News) - DiscoverIE chief executive Nicholas Jefferies disposed of 6,683 ordinary shares in the London-listed customised electronics outfit.
Jefferies, who took over the helm at DiscoverIE in 2009, disposed of the shares at an average price of 418.50p each, for a total value of 27,968.35.

DiscoverIE saw some strong trading throughout the second quarter of the year, telling investors back in early October that it remained on track to deliver full-year earnings in line with its expectations.

The customised electronics designer and manufacturer saw organic sales accelerate from 3% in the first quarter to 5% in the second, primarily driven by a continued solid performance at its design and manufacturing division.

As a result, DiscoverIE's first-half sales increased 13% year-on-year - 4% from organic growth and 9% from acquisitions.

Sales on a reported basis increased by 12% and orders in the first half also increased by 13%.

As of 1630 GMT, DiscoverIE shares had fallen 2.17% to 406p.
