·3 min read

Whilst it may not be a huge deal, we thought it was good to see that the Avante Logixx Inc. (CVE:XX) Independent Chairman, Samuel Duboc, recently bought CA$63k worth of stock, for CA$1.26 per share. While we're hesitant to get too excited about a purchase of that size, we do note it increased their holding by a solid 25%.

Avante Logixx Insider Transactions Over The Last Year

The CEO & Director Craig Campbell made the biggest insider purchase in the last 12 months. That single transaction was for CA$89k worth of shares at a price of CA$0.85 each. We do like to see buying, but this purchase was made at well below the current price of CA$1.28. While it does suggest insiders consider the stock undervalued at lower prices, this transaction doesn't tell us much about what they think of current prices.

In the last twelve months Avante Logixx insiders were buying shares, but not selling. The average buy price was around CA$1.05. These transactions show that insiders have confidence to invest their own money in the stock, albeit at slightly below the recent price.

Does Avante Logixx 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. I reckon it's a good sign if insiders own a significant number of shares in the company. It appears that Avante Logixx insiders own 29% of the company, worth about CA$7.9m. While this is a strong but not outstanding level of insider ownership, it's enough to indicate some alignment between management and smaller shareholders.
