Kerry Group director tops up stake post-results

25 Feb 15

LONDON (ShareCast) - A non-executive director in Kerry Group increased his stake in the group following weak interim results.
Philip Toomey bought 2,000 shares in the ingredients and flavours firm for an individual price of €63.15, spending a total of €126,300.

After the transaction Toomey holds 3,000 shares in the group.

Despite a 2.4% increase in revenues during the year, Kerry said on Tuesday that it suffered from a "weaker overall market" and lower industry inventory levels.

The group was also affected by "challenging macro-economic landscape" and geopolitical tensions in developing markets, but managed to achieve good underlying growth with earnings per share increasing 8.1%.

Chief executive Stan McCarthy said he expects a year of good growth in 2015.
