Director dealings: Smiths Group CEO makes share purchase

(Sharecast News) - Smiths Group revealed on Wednesday that chief executive Paul Keel had purchased 25,000 ordinary shares in the FTSE 100-listed engineer. Keel, who took over as CEO back in May, acquired the shares at an average price of 1,415.0p each, for a total value of £353,749.99.

Earlier in the week, Smiths Group agreed to sell its medical division to US private equity firm TA Associates for $2.3bn.

Smiths, which is planning a "significant" return of capital to shareholders once the sale has completed, said the disposal was "superior to all other proposals received" during the separation process and is a better outcome for shareholders than a demerger.

As of 1630 BST, Smiths shares were up 0.39% at 1,420.0p.
