Director dealings: Hikma non-exec invests, LSE Group share buyback rolls on

(Sharecast News) - Hikma Pharmaceuticals was among those on the list of director buys on Thursday, after a non-executive director added almost £27k worth of shares to his holding. The FTSE 250 company said Douglas Hurt picked up 1,500 shares on 6 June, in a single transaction on the London Stock Exchange.

Hurt paid 1,820p for each share, valuing the investment at a total of £27,300.

On the selling side of things was London Stock Exchange Group, as its share repurchase programme rolled on.

The exchange operator said York Holdings II sold another 2,470 shares back to the company on 7 June, at a price of 8,754.88p apiece.

York Holdings II was described by LSE Group as being "closely associated with" Martin Brand, who is a director of both entities.

It is understood York Holdings II is part of the complex ownership structure that holds Thomson Reuters and Blackstone's shares in LSE Group, established when the latter completed the acquisition of Refinitiv.

At 1415 BST, shares in Hikma Pharmaceuticals were up 1.3% at 1,837p, while those in London Stock Exchange Group were down 0.37% at 8,710p.
