UK: City watchdog fines Reckitt for executive trading disclosure failures

 |  February 8, 2015

Britain’s financial regulator has fined Reckitt Benckiser for not informing the market properly about share trading by two senior executives.

Consumer goods producer Reckitt failed to monitor the internal share dealings of the executives, leading to late and incomplete disclosure to the market, the Financial Conduct Authority said on Friday.

The FCA fined the company $821,845 for breaches of listing, disclosure and transparency rules between 2005 and 2012.

A company spokesman David Litterick said it had “already implemented measures to improve its internal processes that address the FCA’s concerns”.
