Whilst it may not be a huge deal, we thought it was good to see that the Paynova AB (NGM:PAY) Independent Director, Mats Holmfeldt, recently bought kr220k worth of stock, for kr10.49 per share. While we’re hesitant to get too excited about a purchase of that size, we do note it increased their holding by a solid 17%.

Does Paynova Boast High Insider Ownership?
Another way to test the alignment between the leaders of a company and other shareholders is to look at how many shares they own. I reckon it’s a good sign if insiders own a significant number of shares in the company. It appears that Paynova insiders own 19% of the company, worth about kr32m. This level of insider ownership is good but just short of being particularly stand-out. It certainly does suggest a reasonable degree of alignment.
So What Do The Paynova Insider Transactions Indicate?
The recent insider purchases are heartening. And the longer term insider transactions also give us confidence. However, we note that the company didn’t make a profit over the last twelve months, which makes us cautious. When combined with notable insider ownership, these factors suggest Paynova insiders are well aligned, and that they may think the share price is too low.
