Whilst it may not be a huge deal, we thought it was good to see that the Ganesha Ecosphere Limited (NSE:GANECOS) Executive Vice Chairman, Vishnu Khandelwal, recently bought ₹133k worth of stock, for ₹457 per share. Although the purchase is not a big one, by either a percentage standpoint or absolute value, it can be seen as a good sign.
Ganesha Ecosphere Insider Transactions Over The Last Year
In the last twelve months, the biggest single purchase by an insider was when insider Harsh Sharma bought ₹6.8m worth of shares at a price of ₹296 per share. Even though the purchase was made at a significantly lower price than the recent price (₹591), we still think insider buying is a positive. Because the shares were purchased at a lower price, this particular buy doesn't tell us much about how insiders feel about the current share price.
Over the last year, we can see that insiders have bought 383.14k shares worth ₹116m. But they sold 7.45k shares for ₹1.6m.

Insider Ownership of Ganesha Ecosphere
I like to look at how many shares insiders own in a company, to help inform my view of how aligned they are with insiders. Usually, the higher the insider ownership, the more likely it is that insiders will be incentivised to build the company for the long term. Insiders own 33% of Ganesha Ecosphere shares, worth about ₹4.3b. This level of insider ownership is good but just short of being particularly stand-out. It certainly does suggest a reasonable degree of alignment.
