Directors dealings: RPC finance chief plays it safe

(Sharecast News) - RPC's director of finance opted on Thursday to play it safe, selling a large packet of shares in the packaging supplier the day before Berry Group told the market that it would not be tabling a higher takeover offer, unless the company received a better bid from someone else.
Earlier in March, Berry had offered 793p a share for the UK plastics manufacturer - which the RPC board went on to recommend to its shareholders - beating out a previous bid from US private equity giant Apollo, that was made on 23 January and which was worth 782p a share.

Kesterton, who had been the company's finance chief since May 2013, sold 65,000 shares - at 796p each - on Thursday for a total transaction amount of £516,868.
