Finan paid €32.85 for each share, valuing the transaction at a total of €162,770.26.

On the selling side of the ledger was Hays, after one of its executives vested a number of award shares, and subsequently offloaded them.

Evans then sold the 91,144 shares for 104.2023p each, valuing the sale at £94,974.14.

Hays said both transactions took place in London on 12 September.
