Founder still holds the Weel


LISTED race car parts designer PWR Holdings has defended the commitment of its founder after companies linked to him offloaded more than $14m worth of shares in the successful business.

In two statements to the ASX, PWR said a company associated with managing director Kees Weel, KPW Property Holdings, had sold two million shares at $5.09 on February 23 and 689,531 shares at $6.11 between April 23 and 30.

PWR said the February sale – worth $10.18m – was made by Mr Weel’s son Paul, who was “no longer involved with the business activities of PWR”.

The April sale was worth $4.21m.

“Kees Weel continues to be fully committed to PWR and, indirectly through KPW Property Holdings Pty Ltd and Wagon Weel Pty Ltd, remains as the major shareholde­r,” the statement said. The sales leave Mr Weel with 20.3 per cent of the company’s stock.

The company paid a dividend of 2.8c per share on March 18.
