Great Southern VP trades stock

Posted online

Great Southern Bancorp Inc. (Nasdaq: GSBC) Vice President of Operations Douglas Marrs recently bought and sold thousands of company shares, according to a U.S. Securities and Exchange Commission filing.

Marrs utilized the SEC transaction code M, through which executives can execute their rights to buy shares at set rates and sell them at market prices.

On Nov. 21, he purchased and then sold 1,296 shares for a gain of $16,195. He bought and sold 1,204 shares on Nov. 24 for a $9,348 gain, for a total of $25,543 made during the two days of trading, according to the SEC filing. Without factoring the purchases, the sales were valued at a combined $135,112.

Marrs’ trades mark the third time Great Southern has notified the SEC about insider filings since Oct. 26.

The filings indicate that on Oct. 15, Vice President of Information Systems Linton Thomason made a dividend reinvestment and stock purchase plan acquisition to the tune of $2,028, and on Oct. 24, board Chairman Bill Turner gifted $30,954 through a share sale.

Great Southern Bancorp, the operator of Great Southern Bank, last month reported third-quarter earnings of $22.5 million, a 93 percent increase from a year earlier.

GSBC shares were trading at $54.27 as of 11:01 a.m., compared with a 52-week range of $48.10 to $61.65.
