English term or phrase: this came hard on the Heels
The arbitrageur unloaded some 9,4 milllions shares. This came hard on the heels of an earlier sale of 1 per cent of Storehouse's unloved equity.

Explanation:
come hard on the heels of someone/something = (follow closely) etre sur les talons de qlqhn

L'arbitragiste a déchargé quelques 9.4 million de titres / s'est débarassé de 9.4 million d'actions.

Ceci est venu toute de suite après une vente précédente de 1% du capital malaimé du (groupe) Storehouse.
Ceci s'est passé juste après une vente....

Or something like that.
