If you want to know who really controls Stagecoach Group plc ( LON:SGC ), then you'll have to look at the makeup of its...
The Scottish siblings who made hundreds of millions of pounds capitalising on Margaret Thatcher’s privatisation of the bus market are to bow out of the sector after more than four decades in business. Sir Brian Souter and Dame Ann Gloag, who launched Stagecoach in 1980 by running second-hand buses between Scotland and London, have begun the sell-off of their 27.1pc stake in the FTSE 250 group. The pair, who grew up on a council estate in Perth, intend to reduce their combined shareholding to 5pc over the next 10 years. Stagecoach shares fell more than 7pc as they offloaded a 2.5pc stake on Wednesday. Sir Brian became a part-time bus conductor aged 18, joining his father at Alexanders Bus Company. He split his time working with studying at school and university.
The company’s buses are covering more than eight in 10 of the miles they did in 2019.
