Kardan NV (KARD) fell to the lowest close on record after the investor in real estate and financial services had its ratings cut by Standard & Poor’s Maalot.
The Amsterdam-based company’s stock dropped 5.2 percent to 2.089 shekels at the 4:30 p.m. close in Tel Aviv, the lowest since July 2003 when the shares were listed in Israel.
Kardan was lowered to ilCC from ilBBB at S&P’s Maalot yesterday, which said the liquidity profile of the company will deteriorate as a result of a debentures buy-back plan announced this month.
