Grady and Perpetual buying Aveo shares while stock price slides

Published on

Aveo CEO Geoff Grady has taken advantage of Aveo’s price slide following the Four Corners aged care TV program, purchasing 90,000 ordinary stapled securities on the market at $2.05 each; they were priced $2.25 the week before the program.

At the same time, Perpetual Investments picked up 5.19% of Aveo’s stock (30,125,362 securities).

In the just-released Aveo Annual Report, Aveo’s chairman (pictured) Seng Huang Lee representing Mulpha, stated: “Aveo has achieved or exceeded all financial and non-financial strategic plan objectives in transition to a pure retirement group”.

In FY18 they made an underlying profit after tax of $127.2M, up 17% while other major retirement operators saw their profits decline significantly over the 12 months.

The net tangible asset value is close to $3.80 per security.
