(Sharecast News) - Croda International said on Wednesday that chief executive Steve Foots had disposed of 27,243 ordinary shares in the FTSE 100-listed speciality chemicals company.

Foots, who took over as CEO back in 2012, sold the shares at an average price of 5,012.88p each, for a total value of £1.36m.

Back in April, Croda said it would pay its £65m final dividend as the chemicals company reported resilient trading during the Covid-19 crisis.

Croda said it was financially strong enough to pay the 50.5p a share dividend subject to approval at Thursday's annual general meeting.

As of 1630 BST, Croda shares were up 0.56% at 5,072p.
