Simply Wall St

Whilst it may not be a huge deal, we thought it was good to see that the Aegis Logistics Limited (NSE:AEGISLOG) Group President & COO, Sudhir Malhotra, recently bought ₹4.6m worth of stock, for ₹180 per share. However, we do note that it only increased their holding by 0.5%, and it wasn't a huge purchase by absolute value, either.

In fact, the recent purchase by Sudhir Malhotra was the biggest purchase of Aegis Logistics shares made by an insider individual in the last twelve months, according to our records. That means that an insider was happy to buy shares at around the current price of ₹183. That means they have been optimistic about the company in the past, though they may have changed their mind.

Does Aegis Logistics Boast High Insider Ownership?

Another way to test the alignment between the leaders of a company and other shareholders is to look at how many shares they own. I reckon it's a good sign if insiders own a significant number of shares in the company. Our data isn't picking up on much insider ownership at Aegis Logistics, though insiders do hold about ₹151k worth of shares. However, it's possible that insiders might have an indirect interest through a more complex structure. It's always possible we are missing something but from our data, it looks like insider ownership is minimal.
