Model N Insider Transactions Over The Last Year
Over the last year, we can see that the biggest insider sale was by the Senior VP & CFO, David Barter, for US$856k worth of shares, at about US$34.24 per share. So we know that an insider sold shares at around the present share price of US$33.47. While we don’t usually like to see insider selling, it’s more concerning if the sales take place at a lower price. Given that the sale took place at around current prices, it makes us a little cautious but is hardly a major concern.

Insider Ownership of Model N
Looking at the total insider shareholdings in a company can help to inform your view of whether they are well aligned with common shareholders.

I like to see this level of insider ownership, because it increases the chances that management are thinking about the best interests of shareholders.
