(Sharecast News) - Kape Technologies chief executive officer Ido Erlichman enjoyed a £2.6m payday, the company disclosed on Wednesday, as a group of senior staff members made share sales.

The AIM-traded digital security and privacy software company said Erlichman solds 650,000 shares at 400p apiece, making the transaction worth £2.6m.

Additionally, chief financial officer designate Oded Baskind sold 55,857 shares, Ran Greenberg sold 1,026,829 shares and Ariel Hochstadt sold 168,000 shares, also at 400p each.

In conjunction with his sale of shares, the firm said Baskind exercised a total of 12,500 options, with certain members of Kape staff also exercising a further 1.2 million options over shares in the company.

"Following the exercise of options, the company's issued share capital will consist of 359,512,186 ordinary shares, of which the company holds 8,450,154 in treasury, the voting rights to which have been waived," Kape said in its statement.

On the buying side of the table, Card Factory said its non-executive chairman Paul Moody had purchased 200,000 shares at a price of 56.4563p each, in on-market transactions.

The London-listed greetings card and gifting retailer said Moody's beneficial interest in its shares following the purchase was 200,000 shares, or 0.06% of its issued capital.

At the close on Wednesday, shares in Kape Technologies were down 6.8% at 370p, while those in Card Factory were ahead 5.18% at 59.11p.
