Independent Non-Executive Director Jennifer Horrigan Just Bought 39% More Shares In A2B Australia Limited (ASX:A2B)

·3 min read

Even if it's not a huge purchase, we think it was good to see that Jennifer Horrigan, the Independent Non-Executive Director of A2B Australia Limited (ASX:A2B) recently shelled out AU$50k to buy stock, at AU$1.20 per share. While we're hesitant to get too excited about a purchase of that size, we do note it increased their holding by a solid 39%.

Notably, that recent purchase by Jennifer Horrigan is the biggest insider purchase of A2B Australia shares that we've seen in the last year. That means that even when the share price was higher than AU$1.18 (the recent price), an insider wanted to purchase shares. It's very possible they regret the purchase, but it's more likely they are bullish about the company. We always take careful note of the price insiders pay when purchasing shares. Generally speaking, it catches our eye when insiders have purchased shares at above current prices, as it suggests they believed the shares were worth buying, even at a higher price.

Does A2B Australia Boast High Insider Ownership?

Many investors like to check how much of a company is owned by insiders. I reckon it's a good sign if insiders own a significant number of shares in the company. Our data suggests A2B Australia insiders own 2.8% of the company, worth about AU$4.0m. We do note, however, it is possible insiders have an indirect interest through a private company or other corporate structure. I generally like to see higher levels of ownership.

So What Do The A2B Australia Insider Transactions Indicate?

The recent insider purchase is heartening. And the longer term insider transactions also give us confidence. But we don't feel the same about the fact the company is making losses. We would certainly prefer see higher levels of insider ownership but analysis of the insider transactions suggests that A2B Australia insiders are expecting a bright future. So while it's helpful to know what insiders are doing in terms of buying or selling, it's also helpful to know the risks that a particular company is facing.
