Director dealings: Dechra chairman and CEO raise stakes

(Sharecast News) - Dechra Pharmaceuticals revealed on Wednesday that chief executive officer Ian Page had offloaded 200,000 ordinary shares in the FTSE 250-listed veterinary drugs outfit.

Page, who joined Dechra's former services business at its formation in 1989, sold the shares on Tuesday at an average price of 2,916.95p each, for a total value of £5.83.

Chairman Tony Rice also disposed of 20,000 shares at an average price of 2,909.97p each, collecting £581,993.60 in the process.

Earlier in the month, Dechra upped its full-year dividend on the back of improved earnings and revenues following some recent acquisitions.

Dechra raised its dividend 23.9% to 31.6p after its earnings before interest, tax, depreciation and amortisation rose by 27.7% to £137.2m for the year ended 30 June, while revenues increased by 17.5% to £481.8m despite supply chain woes at both its own sites and those of contracted manufacturers.

As of 1630 BST, Dechra shares had picked up 1.37% to 2,956p.
