The purchase of 200,000 £1 shares gives Polin a 0.74% stake in the firm. Other purchases include 42,000 shares bought by Kenneth West, the organisation’s chairman, and 12,000 shares by Neil Hale, chief financial officer. Jeremy Rance, chief operating officer, and Ranil Perera, non-executive director, have bought 15,000 and 5,000 shares respectively.
