CBL sells 20 million shares for $65 million

A regional insurer has sold 20 million shares, or 8.5% of its issued capital, as it seeks to “increase share market liquidity.”

The shares were offloaded at AU$3.00 per share, an 11% discount from Tuesday’s AU$3.35.

CBL’s managing director Peter Harris sold five million shares; deputy chairman Alistair Hutchinson, 5.4 million shares; and the senior management, a further 9.6 million shares - generating $65 million, Finance News Network reported.
