The Company and PC's reassessment of the probability of future development of certain properties in view of the financial crisis affecting the area in which the Group operates, and the Company's deteriorating liquidity position.

General and administrative expenses amounted to NIS 13 million (US$ 4 million) in Q3 2013 compared to NIS 11 million in Q3 2012. The increase is mainly attributable to expenses relating to the arrangement of the Company's unsecured financial debt.
