Ahead of his departure from Disney at the end of the year, former CEO Bob Iger has sold more than 600,000 shares in the company valued at more than $90 million.
Iger sold the shares in early June, according to a filing with the SEC. When he sold the shares, they were priced at between $178.74 and $179.81, according to the filing (via Deadline).
