Hot Telecommunication System Ltd. rose to the highest level in almost three years as the Israeli cable television company signed a loan-refinancing agreement and TheMarker reported it will get an internet license.
The shares advanced 3.7 percent to 57.40 shekels, the highest intraday level since January 2008, at 12:25 p.m. in Tel Aviv.
Hot signed a memorandum of understanding with Bank Leumi Le-Israel Ltd. and Bank Hapoalim Ltd. to borrow as much as 3.4 billion shekels ($939 million). The company will also use the funds to distribute dividends, it said.
Separately, TheMarker reported the company will today receive a license to provide Internet services from the Ministry of Communications.
