Director dealings: TalkTalk chairman makes share purchase

(Sharecast News) - TalkTalk revealed on Tuesday that chairman Charles Dunstone had purchased one million ordinary shares in the FTSE 250-listed telecommunications firm. Dunstone, who founded TalkTalk back in 2002, acquired the shares on Monday at an average price of 86.00p each, for a total value of £860,000.01.

Earlier in June, TalkTalk pulled guidance and set aside £15m for bad debts in 2021 in response to the coronavirus crisis but kept its dividend and reported a rise in core earnings on the back of higher fibre internet takeup.

TalkTalk reported a 9.7% rise in earnings before interest, tax, depreciation and amortisation to £260m on the back of a 1.9% fall in revenue to £1.51bn. TalkTalk maintained a final dividend of 1.5p a share.

As of 1640 GMT, TalkTalk shares were down 0.71% at 98.25p.
