Director dealings: Hunting CEO ups stake

(Sharecast News) - Hunting revealed on Monday that chief executive Arthur Johnson had acquired 24,289 ordinary shares in the London-listed energy services firm. Johnson, who joined Hunting in 1992, purchased the shares on Friday at an average price of 269.20p each, for a total value of £65,385.99.

Earlier in March, Hunting reported a fall in revenue to $626.0m in its full-year results, down from $960m in the prior year, as it suffered from a reduction in oil and gas activity globally in 2020.

EBITDA for the year ended 31 December totalled $26.1m, falling from $139.7m in 2019, while Hunting also swung to an underlying loss from operations of $16.4m from a profit of $94.3m a year earlier.

As of 1650 GMT, Hunting shares are down 4.28% at 277.20p.
