(Sharecast News) - Asos co-founder Nick Robertson disposed of 410,000 ordinary shares in the AIM-listed online retailer on Wednesday as part of an effort to fund his £70m divorce settlement.
Robertson, who stepped down as chief executive of ASOS in 2015, sold the shares at an average price of 3,722.50p each, for a total value of £15.26m.

The former CEO was ordered to dole out roughly a third of his £220m fortune to ex-wife Janine following a public trial back in 2016.

Following the transaction, Robertson holds 4.63m ordinary shares in Asos, representing 5.53% of the company's issued share capital.

As of 1625 BST, Asos shares had picked up 3.24% to 3,883p.
