Notably, that recent purchase by Chairman & MD Dasari Uday Reddy was not the only time they bought Tanla Solutions shares this year. They previously made an even bigger purchase of ₹67m worth of shares at a price of ₹40.00 per share. Even though the purchase was made at a significantly lower price than the recent price (₹54.60), we still think insider buying is a positive. Because it occurred at a lower valuation, it doesn’t tell us much about whether insiders might find today’s price attractive.
