IQGeo Group was at the top of the buyers’ list on Friday, disclosing that Kestrel Partners had purchased 200,000 shares on behalf of its discretionary clients.

The AIM-traded firm said the shares were bought at an average price of £1.27 each, making for a total value of £254,000.

Its non-executive director Max Royde is a partner of, and holds a beneficial interest in, Kestrel, and is also a shareholder in Kestrel Opportunities, and thus has a beneficial interest in that entity’s entire legal holding in IQGeo.

Following the transaction, IQGeo said Kestrel Opportunities holds, and thus Royde was deemed to have a beneficial interest in, 10,907,810 shares in the company, while other clients of Kestrel in which Royde had no beneficial interest, held 4,267,642 shares.

On a combined basis, Kestrel indirectly held voting rights over 15,175,452 shares in the company, representing 26.38% of its issued share capital.

Pharos Energy was flying solo on the selling side of the ledger, with managing Mike Watts and president and chief executive officer Ed Story selling down some of their recently-exercised awards to cover their bills with the Revenue.

The company said Watts sold a total of 206,356 shares in two transactions on 3 and 9 January, both at a price of 24.88p, netting him £51,336.06 for his tax liabilities and related costs.

Story, meanwhile, sold 113,765 shares, also at 24.88p, giving him £33,274.04 for his HMRC bill.

Following the sales, Pharos said Story held 3.68% of its issued share capital in 16,271,613 shares, while Watts had 0.25% of the firm in 1,083,348 shares.

At 1503 GMT, shares in IQGeo Group were down 0.76% at 130p, while Pharos Energy was trading up 0.76% at 26.5p.
