Signet CFO sells amid share-price strength

20 Jun 13

LONDON (ShareCast) - Signet Jewelers, the largest speciality retail jewellery in the US and UK, saw its Chief Financial Officer (CFO) offload part of his stake this week following an impressive share-price rise so far this yar.

Ronald Ristau, who became CFO of the dual-listed company in June 2010, sold 6,135 shares at a price of $68.37 each for a total of $419,450 (around £270,000).

He was left with 37,613 shares in the firm after the transaction on June 17th.

The year-to-date rise of the London-listed shares was 32% a day before the sale was made, with the stock up 54% over the last 12 months.

The stock reached an all-time high of 4,787p in May after it revealed that same-store sales had risen by 6.4% in its first quarter (ended May 4th), with operating income up 10.4%.

Meanwhile, on June 18th, Signet revealed a $350m share repurchase programme which “reflects our ongoing commitment to build long-term value for our shareholders, the continued confidence we have in the strength of our business, and our ability to generate free cash flow after investment in our growth initiatives”.
