Director dealings: AstraZeneca CFO makes $1.5m sale, IHG chair buys in

(Sharecast News) - At the top of the list of FTSE 350 director sells on Tuesday was AstraZeneca, whose chief financial officer sold almost $1.5m worth of the company's American depositary shares. The pharmaceuticals giant said Aradhana Sarin sold 19,470 of the shares on 5 May, at a price of $74.81 each.

That valued the transaction at a total of $1,456,550.70.

Two of AstraZeneca's American depositary shares are equivalent to one of its ordinary shares, the firm said in its disclosure.

On the buying side of things, the non-executive chair of InterContinental Hotels Group was also dealing in American depositary instruments, spending almost $0.35m.

The owner of brands including Holiday Inn said Deanna Oppenheimer acquired 5,000 of its American depositary receipts on the New York Stock Exchange on 8 May.

Oppenheimer paid $68.89 for each ADR, valuing the purchase at $344,450 in total.

At 1437 BST, shares in AstraZeneca were up 0.11% in London at 11,884p, while those in InterContinental Hotels Group were 0.6% firmer at 5,442p.
