Director dealings: Next director lowers stake

(Sharecast News) - Next revealed on Wednesday that non-executive director Francis Salway had disposed of 4,520 ordinary shares in the FTSE 100-listed clothing retailer. Salway, who was appointed to the board of Next back in 2010, sold the shares at an average price of 8,050.0p each, for a total value of £363,860.

Earlier in January, Next reported a small drop in sales over Christmas but its performance was better than the retailer had expected and the company said online sales made up for almost all those lost in retail stores.

In the nine weeks to 26 December, full price sales declined 1.1% on last year, coming in ahead of the retailer's central guidance for an 8% drop in its October trading update. Online sales during the period rose 38%, with UK online sales up 36%, while retail sales slumped 43%.

As of 1630 GMT, Next shares were up 1.25% at 8,084.0p.
