Boohoo share price: what’s the latest after hitting all-time high in November?

The online fashion retailer saw its stock hit a new all-time high at the end of November, prompting its founders to cash out, selling £142.5 million worth of shares.

Two weeks ago, Boohoo saw its share price hit a new all-time high of 315.5p, representing a 95% increase from where the stock was at the start of the year.

A week later, the price move prompted Boohoo founders Mahmud Kamani and Carol Kane to sell 50 million shares worth £142.5 million.

After the sale, Kamani now controls a 13.1% stockholding in the company, while Kane holds a 2.7% stake. The pair have pledged to not sell any further shares for the next 18 months unless permitted by other shareholders.

Since hitting a record high in late November, Boohoo has seen its share price fall by 15%, with the stock trading at 264p as of 11:30 GMT on Wednesday.
