Director dealings: Ian Mattioli makes £1.17m sale, bonus shares bought for Restaurant Group execs

(Sharecast News) - On the buyers' side of the ledger on Friday were two executives at the Restaurant Group, with shares purchased to be held for three years for them as part of its deferred bonus scheme. The London-listed firm, which owns the chains Wagamama and Frankie & Benny's, said under its bonus scheme, half of any annual bonus payable to executive directors each year was deferred into ordinary shares and held in escrow by its employee benefit trust.

As a result, chief executive officer Andy Hornby was behind the purchase of 247,585 shares, while 116,502 shares were purchased for chief financial officer Kirk Davis.

Both transactions were at a price of 61.36p each, making Hornby's transaction worth £151.924.09, with Davis' valued at £71,488.42.

Mattioli Woods was at the top of the list of sells, meanwhile, after its chief executive officer enjoyed a payday worth almost £1.2m after offloading a small part of his holding.

The AIM-traded company said Ian Mattioli sold 150,000 shares for 780p each, netting him a total of £1,170.000.03.

Following that, it said Mattioli's total interest, including shares held by his spouse and a charitable trust under his direction, totalled 3,023.432 shares, or 5.93% of its issued capital.
