Rightmove CEO Peter Brooks-Johnson has exercised nil cost share options with the sale of shares awarded to him in February of 2018. The sale of 171,022 shares netted the long-time Rightmove man just over £1 million at a price of £6.14 per share. Brooks-Johnson retains over 2 million shares in the British market-leading portal company with a value of over £12 million.

Although Rightmove’s share price has been on a steady road to recovery since its nadir of 400GBX on the 23rd of March, it has been spectacularly outperformed by stocks of other market-leading portal companies from around the world including Zillow, Scout24, and REA Group.
