Speey Hire's David Shearer picked up a batch of shares ahead of the company´s year-end close on 31 March.

The non-executive director bought 50,000 shares at 49.0p a piece for a total transaction amount of £24,500, the company said in a statement.

On 7 February, the tools, equipment and plant hire services company said it now expected profits before tax for the full-year to print ahead of consensus thanks to an improving revenue trend and gains in operational efficiency.

Newton-le-Willows-based Speey Hire said that same day that on a like-for-like basis pre-disposal group revenues for the third quarter were running 10.6% ahead of the year before.

The shares were trading just off their 52-week high of 54.0p.
