  • ASX remains in green with tech stocks leading charge
  • The Nickel price continues to plummet

Online fashion platform Cettire (ASX:CCT) founder and CEO Dean Mints has just pocketed himself a cool $47.2 million, after selling 35 million shares.

In announcement to the ASX today, Cetire said the sale followed the shares recent release from voluntary escrow and represented 9.18% of the company’s issued capital.

The sale was at a price of $1.35 per share in a block trade, representing a discount of 12.9% from Cettire’s last close and arranged by Highbury Partnership.

Mints remains Cettire’s largest shareholder, retaining a 56.72% shareholding in the company.

He confirmed he will not sell any further shares before the release of the company’s FY22 full year results.

“Cettire is a huge part of my life, it has phenomenal market opportunity and I remain fully committed to continuing to lead the company to grow shareholder value,” Mints said in the statement.

“The sale enables greater trading liquidity and a broadening of the share register and I look forward to welcoming new shareholders to the company.”
