Anyone interested in Mahindra Logistics Limited (NSE:MAHLOG) should probably be aware that the Senior General Manager, Ravi Begur, recently divested ₹8.4m worth of shares in the company, at an average price of ₹750 each. That sale was 31% of their holding, so it does make us raise an eyebrow.
The Last 12 Months Of Insider Transactions At Mahindra Logistics
Over the last year, we can see that the biggest insider sale was by the insider, Seema Bhaskar, for ₹15m worth of shares, at about ₹727 per share. So we know that an insider sold shares at around the present share price of ₹675. We generally don't like to see insider selling, but the lower the sale price, the more it concerns us. In this case, the big sale took place at around the current price, so it's not too bad (but it's still not a positive).

Does Mahindra Logistics Boast High Insider Ownership?
Looking at the total insider shareholdings in a company can help to inform your view of whether they are well aligned with common shareholders.

Insiders own 2.1% of Mahindra Logistics shares, worth about ₹1.0b. While this is a strong but not outstanding level of insider ownership, it's enough to indicate some alignment between management and smaller shareholders.
