Director dealings: Barclays chair invests, York Holdings settles LSEG call options

(Sharecast News) - Nigel Higgins, the group chairman of Barclays, was on the buying side of the ledger on Thursday.
Higgins acquired 200,000 shares of Barclays for 138.67p each, on 7 December on the London Stock Exchange.

On the selling side was York Holdings II, an entity closely associated with director Martin Brand, which engaged in a series of transactions involving the London Stock Exchange Group.

The transactions involved the settlement of call options.

In the first announcement, York Holdings settled call options over 32,329 shares for an average price of $101.23 across three transactions, and in the second, it settled 27,945 options over another three transactions at the same price.

The settlements took place outside a trading venue on 6 December.

York Holdings II is indirectly owned by BCP York Holdings, which is connected to Blackstone and Thomson Reuters through their previous ownership of Refinitiv.

Thomson Reuters sold a majority stake in Refinitiv to a consortium led by Blackstone in October 2018, and Blackstone and Thomson Reuters subsequently agreed to sell Refinitiv to LSEG in an all-share transaction in 2019.

The sale was finalised in January 2021, at which point Thomson Reuters held 82.5 million shares in LSEG, subject to a lock-up arrangement.

That arrangement stipulated that the shares remained restricted from sale until 29 January this year, with the option for both Thomson Reuters and Blackstone to sell one-third of their stakes in each of the two years following.

The lock-up agreement is set to conclude entirely on 29 January 2025.
