The biggest director trade on the ASX in the past fortnight came from one of Australia’s most famous pub barons – Bruce Mathieson of Endeavour Group (ASX:EDV).

Mathieson is 63rd on the Top 200 rich list with a net worth of $1.54 billion. Endeavour is a spin-off from Woolworths (ASX:WOW) – including retail brands BWS and Dan Murphys as well as delivery service Jimmy Bring’s – and a pub portfolio that consists of 30% of pubs across Australia.

He’s been in business since 1974 but partnered with Woolworths since 2000.

Woolworths formed a joint venture in Queensland called MGW Hotels. In 2004 the entity bought ALH Group just a year after it listed on the ASX and changed its name to ALH.

Over the next 15 years the group extended its ownership to 330 venues until in 2019 a deal was sealed to merge the alcohol retailers of Woolworths and ALH.

Mathieson bought $54.6m of shares earlier this month in a deal that took him to owning 15% of the company.
