Aderans Holdings Co., a wigmaker, fell 325 yen, or 14 percent, to 2,065, the largest percentage move among 1,891 stocks globally in the Morgan Stanley Capital International World Index. The company cut its full-year net income forecast 67 percent to 1.2 billion yen.
Looks like Aderans spun off their hair-related business into a separate entity, Aderans Holdings, in September, 2007. Makes you wonder if that was a defensive maneuver when Aderans was a hostile take-over target earlier in the year. They prevented the take-over, but now Aderans Holdings tanks 14% in one day.
Well, maybe that’s new incentive for them to get HM to the market even sooner.
