Hunting CEO ditches 100,000 shares

Date: Tuesday 01 May 2012

LONDON (ShareCast) - The Chief Executive Officer of FTSE 250 energy services provider Hunting has sold off 100,000 shares in the firm at 945p each.

Dennis Proctor, who has been a director of Hunting for twelve years, made the 945,000 sale to satisfy personal tax liabilities, the company said.

Following the transaction, the director now holds 1,220,472 shares, equal to 0.83% of the firm's share capital.

The company's share price has performed well over the past year, gaining over 17%, or 139p.

Just over a month ago the Hunting revealed that it sold its Canadian airport business for 7.5m.

Hunting Canadian Airport Holdings, which includes Field Aviation, was bought by a consortium of North American investors put together by the current management team.

Hunting agreed to defer 1.9m of the deal, which it will receive by the end of 2018 and on which it will earn interest at a rate of 8% a year in the meantime, the firm said.

On the day of Proctor's sale, the share price fell 0.58% to 945.50p.
