Independent director Beat Kahli has made the biggest insider buy in the past 12 months. This single transaction involved US$333,000 of shares at a price of US$10.37 each.

We have certainly seen higher levels of insider ownership elsewhere, but these holdings are enough to suggest an alignment between insiders and other shareholders.
