US-based Wasatch Funds was believed to have bought 10 million shares of Peoples Leasing & Finance PLC yesterday.

 The shares were traded in two crossings - 9.2 million shares and 800, 000 shares-each at Rs.25.50.

 Unconfirmed market sources said the seller of the shares was high net worth investor Indra Silva, the third single 
largest shareholder with a 3 percent stake.
