PureCircle (PURE 205p) manufacture sugar substitutes from a plant called Stevia.

I was drawn to the company by the disclosure on July 1st ( see http://www.purecircle.com) that a non exec Olivier Maes, had spent £162,000 buying 80,000 shares in PureCircle at 203p.

PureCircle subsequently announced a date for their Interim Results, September 17th.

PureCircle were listed on Aim in December at 170p.

I think £162,000 is a large initial position to take for a non exec, and look forward to seeing what news the Interim results bring.
