Data Interpretation

Detailed Solution

93. The data you need is in both the pie-chart and the table.
Step 1 The pie-chart shows that 16% of Directors hold shares, so 100  16 = 84% do not hold shares
Step 2 Calculate the total number of director shares at 30 April 2009
Director At 30 April 2009
Geoffrey Yates 1,050
Tobey Gilham 950
Susan Preddy 820
Samantha Hoxton 1,100
Trudy Stupples 960
Total = 4,880
Step 3 - Calculate 84%
16% = 4,880
84% = 4,880 x 84 / 16 = 25,620
So the correct answer is 25,620

94. The largest number of shares can be found by calculating the differences in shareholdings between the periods 1st April  30 April and 30 April  31st May.

So the correct answer is Trudy Stupples

95. From the table, Tobey Gilham holds 820 shares at 31 May 2009
820 / 2 = 410 shares at £45 per share
£45 x 410 = £18,450
Hence the correct answer is £18,450

96. Go through checking whether each answer option is true or false
Current employees and Directors owned 37% of Leutts shares on 30 April 2009  not 40%. FALSE
The largest Director share dealing was 1440 shares which Trudy Stupples bought between 30 April  31st May. TRUE
Directors held 4,880 shares in total on 30 April 2009  not 4870 shares. FALSE
Trudy Stupples held the most shares of any Director on 1st April 2009  not Tobey Gilham. FALSE
Each Director does not have less shares on 31 May 2009 compared to 1st April 2009  Trudy Stupples has more shares. FALSE
So the correct answer is The largest Director share dealing was 1440 shares

97. Total number of Director shares = 4,880
This represents 16% of the total shares
So, 100% = 4880 x 100 / 16 = 30,500
Company share valuation = 30,500 x £52 = £1,586,000
Thus the correct answer is £1,586,000
