Insider Ownership Of Park City Group

The definition of company insiders can be subjective and does vary between jurisdictions. Our data reflects individual insiders, capturing board members at the very least. Management ultimately answers to the board. However, it is not uncommon for managers to be executive board members, especially if they are a founder or the CEO.

Most consider insider ownership a positive because it can indicate the board is well aligned with other shareholders. However, on some occasions too much power is concentrated within this group.

Our most recent data indicates that insiders own a reasonable proportion of Park City Group, Inc.. Insiders have a US$36m stake in this US$100m business. This may suggest that the founders still own a lot of shares. You can click here to see if they have been buying or selling.
