However, compared to the one-year high price of $28.4, the acquisition price represented a big discount of close to 55%.

Another Director Purchase

Similarly, another Director, Rosenthal, acquired 8,000 shares at the rate of $12.21 a share, another filing with SEC revealed. He also came under the 10% ownership category, and the purchase was reported for his direct holding.

Earlier Insider Activities

According to a Nasdaq data, there was only one insider trading activities in the last three-month period before the latest activities.
