(Sharecast News) - Eckoh revealed on Friday that chief executive officer Nicholas Philpot had acquired 25,000 ordinary shares in the AIM-listed secure payments provider.

Philpot, who took over as CEO back in 2006, purchased the shares on Wednesday and Thursday at an average price of 63.7p per share, for a total value of £1.59m.

Following the transaction, Philpot held a beneficial interest in 7.0m ordinary shares in the group, representing roughly 2.74% of the company's issued share capital.

Earlier in the week, analysts at Canaccord Genuity upped their rating on software outfit Eckoh to 'buy' after the group turned in a strong first-half performance despite Covid-19 impacts.

As of 1630 GMT, Eckoh shares were flat on 65.50p.
