17 Apr 19

LONDON (ShareCast) - (Sharecast News) - Asos co-founder Nick Robertson disposed of 410,000 ordinary shares in the AIM-listed online retailer on Wednesday as part of an effort to fund his 70m divorce settlement.
Robertson, who stepped down as chief executive of ASOS in 2015, sold the shares at an average price of 3,722.50p each, for a total value of 15.26m.

The former CEO was ordered to dole out roughly a third of his 220m fortune to ex-wife Janine following a public trial back in 2016.

Following the transaction, Robertson holds 4.63m ordinary shares in Asos, representing 5.53% of the company's issued share capital.
