Lemon Tree Hotels Insider Transactions Over The Last Year

The Chairman & MD, Patanjali Keswani, made the biggest insider sale in the last 12 months. That single transaction was for ₹764m worth of shares at a price of ₹41.28 each. That means that an insider was selling shares at around the current price of ₹36.00. While insider selling is a negative, to us, it is more negative if the shares are sold 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.

Does Lemon Tree Hotels Boast High Insider Ownership?

Many investors like to check how much of a company is owned by insiders. We usually like to see fairly high levels of insider ownership. From our data, it seems that Lemon Tree Hotels insiders own 1.3% of the company, worth about ₹376m. But they may have an indirect interest through a corporate structure that we haven't picked up on. Whilst better than nothing, we're not overly impressed by these holdings.
