DeNunzio paid 49p for each share, valuing the transaction at £98,000.00.

The firm said Mat Masters received 5,398 shares at nil cost under its 2020 performance share scheme on 18 September before selling 2,546.

Masters sold the shares for 3,520p apiece, giving the sale a total value of £89,619.20.
