Share options have been granted to the CEO of Purplebricks in the UK.
Lee Wainwright has been given options to subscribe for 100,000 shares in the company.
The options were granted under the company’s share option plan for employees and have an exercise price of £4.15 – the closing price as at March 2.
However, the shares closed yesterday at around £3.64.
Meanwhile, at competitor agent Tepilo, Richard Desmond – former owner of the Express, which was recently sold to the Mirror – has filed a notice to say that he is no longer a person with significant control.
North & Shell Ventures, and Northern & Shell Media Group, owners of the Express, have also lodged notices to say they no longer have significant control of Tepilo. As yet, there are no further details.
EYE reported just before Christmas that Tepilo appeared to have been sold to Northern & Shell Ventures, and that founder Sarah Beeny was no longer a director.
