Whilst it may not be a huge deal, we thought it was good to see that the SRG Global Limited (ASX:SRG) Independent Director, Peter Brecht, recently bought AU$100k worth of stock, for AU$0.40 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 13%.

The MD & Director David Macgeorge made the biggest insider purchase in the last 12 months. That single transaction was for AU$159k worth of shares at a price of AU$0.32 each.

Looking at the total insider shareholdings in a company can help to inform your view of whether they are well aligned with common shareholders. We usually like to see fairly high levels of insider ownership. Insiders own 8.6% of SRG Global shares, worth about AU$17m. While this is a strong but not outstanding level of insider ownership, it's enough to indicate some alignment between management and smaller shareholders.
So What Does This Data Suggest About SRG Global Insiders?
It is good to see the recent insider purchase. 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 SRG Global insiders are well aligned, and that they may think the share price is too low. So these insider transactions can help us build a thesis about the stock, but it's also worthwhile knowing the risks facing this company.
