Americanas shares, now off the Ibovespa, ended this Monday (23) up 12.68%, after five consecutive trading sessions of declines and losing more than 90% of their value in less than two weeks – since that, on the night of January 11, the news broke that the company had a billionaire shortfall not computed for years in its balance sheets.
Despite the advance, the shares are still worth less than R$ 1, a range they crossed at the close of Thursday (19). The quotation jumped from R$ 0.71, at the end of the trading session on Friday (20), to R$ 0.80 this Monday.
On January 11, in the last trading session before the crisis over its finances broke out, Americanas shares ended the day at R$12.
On Thursday, B3 announced that it was withdrawing the retailer from the Ibovespa, an index that brings together the largest companies listed on the stock exchange, as well as all of its other indices.
Also on Thursday, Americanas opened its request for judicial recovery, declaring a debt to be renegotiated of R$ 43 billion. It will be the fourth largest judicial recovery process ever registered in the country.
