accesso Technology Group Insider Transactions Over The Last Year
In the last twelve months, the biggest single purchase by an insider was when CEO & Director Steven Brown bought UK£772k worth of shares at a price of UK£3.90 per share. That means that even when the share price was higher than UK£3.05 (the recent price), an insider wanted to purchase shares. While their view may have changed since the purchase was made, this does at least suggest they have had confidence in the company's future. In our view, the price an insider pays for shares is very important. It is generally more encouraging if they paid above the current price, as it suggests they saw value, even at higher levels.
