Are you kidding me? He owns close to 20% of the company. How does this not benefit him?

That's too simplistic an analysis.

It only benefits him if

1. The news is false

2. He cashes out before the stock price returns to it's previous level

We can check if he is doing 2, because insider trading rules requires he announces trades in advance.

Has he announced any trades?
