In the last twelve months, the biggest single purchase by an insider was when Non-Executive Director Ian Greenyer bought AU$92k worth of shares at a price of AU$0.92 per share.

While it does suggest insiders consider the stock undervalued at lower prices, this transaction doesn't tell us much about what they think of current prices.
