Director dealings: Aston Martin directors linked to big sales, CLS non-exec's firm invests

(Sharecast News) - Luxury car maker Aston Martin Lagonda found itself with the top two entries on the list of director sells on Tuesday, after two multi-million pound transactions were linked to two of its directors. The company said the British Virgin Islands-domiciled Yew Tree Overseas offloaded 34,930,307 shares in a single transaction on the London Stock Exchange on 25 May.

It sold the shares for 335p each, valuing the transaction at £117,016,528.45.

The company also disclosed that the Swiss-incorporated Saint James Invest SA sold 2,333,127 shares on 25 May as well, also in a single transaction on the London Stock Exchange.

It received 335p for each share too, giving that sale a total value of £7,815,975.45.

Aston Martin said in its filing that Saint James Invest SA is linked to its non-executive director Michael de Picciotto.
