Director dealings: M&C Saatchi executives purchase shares

(Sharecast News) - Advertising agency M&C Saatchi\'s entire executive board upped their stake in the AIM-listed outfit on Monday after it detailed an accounting issue that would result in a £6.4m hit to its upcoming full-year results.
Chairman Jeremy Sinclair, chief executive David Kershaw and executive director Bill Muirhead each purchased 37,314 ordinary shares in the group at an average price of 268.0p per share, for a total value of £100,001 per person.

As a result of the transaction, each of the executive director\'s beneficial interest in the company rose to a total of 4.16m ordinary shares, representing approximately 4.56% of its issued share capital.

Finance director Mickey Kalifa snapped up 27,985 at 268.0p each, for a total value of £74,999.80.

M&C Saatchi revealed earlier in the day that after it had undertaken an internal review of its UK subsidiaries, the group discovered it had incorrectly counted outstanding fees as revenues and included assets no longer used on its balance sheet.

The AIM-listed group told investors the accounting issues added up to £4.9m, but noted that it would set aside an extra £1.5m in order to \"provide for any potential further items arising\".

As of 1630 BST, M&C Saatchi shares had tumbled 23.60% to 259p.
