Ian Hawksworth has used cash raised from the sale of options exercised in Capital Shopping Centres to reinvest in Capital & Counties Properties.
Hawksworth, who is chief executive of Capital & Counties, bought 87,840 shares at 112.99p each. That cost just over £99,000 and took his stake in the central London property investor to 282,752 shares.
Capital & Counties demerged from Capital Shopping Centres at the end of May 2010. There was a distribution of one Capital & Counties share for each share held in Capital Shopping Centres. The capital distribution was deemed to be worth 119.25p a share, so the share price has fallen back since then.
