Insider trades in Cibus Nordic’s real estate over the past year

Chairman of the board, Patrick Gylling, made the biggest insider sale of the last 12 months. This single transaction involved 20 million kr of shares at a price of 205 kr each. It is therefore clear that an insider wanted to remove money from the table, even below the current price of 228 kr. When an insider sells below the current price, it suggests that they consider this lower price to be fair. This makes us wonder what they think of the recent (higher) valuation. However, while insider selling is sometimes discouraging, this is only a weak signal. We note that the biggest single sale was just 17% of Patrick Gylling’s stake. Patrick Gylling was the only individual insider to sell shares in the last twelve months.

Fortunately, we note that last year insiders paid 539,000 kr for 2,430 shares. But they sold 100,000 shares for 20 million kr.
