OnTheMarket’s former chief executive cashes in shares

Clive Beattie, a former chief executive of OnTheMarket, has sold 16,515 shares of the company’s stock.

The transaction, which took place on  Tuesday 10 May, saw the shares sold at an average price of 70p, for a total value of £11,560.50.

It was announced earlier this year that Beattie had shares worth £92,000 as part of the property portal’s employee share option plan.

Beattie, OnTheMarket’s chief financial officer, took over as chief executive for a few months after Ian Springett was dismissed from the role.

Beattie, who earns around £255,000 a year at OnTheMarket, also has additional vested share options and existing shares worth about £200,000 and unvested options worth an additional £725,000.

The news regarding Beattie came in a statement to shareholders yesterday, which you read below:
