Director dealings: Watkin Jones director makes share purchase

(Sharecast News) - Watkin Jones revealed on Monday that non-executive director Elizabeth Reilly had acquired 20,000 ordinary shares in the AIM-listed builder and manager of rented accommodation.
Reilly, who joined WJG's board in January 2019, purchased the shares last Thursday at an average price of 137.69p each, for a total value of £27,538.

Back in April, Watkin Jones scrapped its interim dividend and withdrawn financial guidance after the Covid-19 virus disrupted the student accommodation specialist.

Watkin Jones said first-half trading was strong and that it expects to report revenue and earnings in line with expectations when its results are released. But after halting non-essential work on construction sites the company said those measures would affect financial performance.

To conserve cash it said it would not pay a dividend for the six months to the end of March.

As of 1630 BST, Watkin Jones shares were down 2.16% at 135.60p.
