Sept. 25 (Bloomberg) -- Egypt’s benchmark EGX 30 Index lost 2.4 percent to 4,233.22 at the 2:30 p.m. close in Cairo, the lowest level since April 2009.

The following shares rose or fell. Symbols are in parentheses.

Maridive & Oil Services SAE (MOIL EY) dropped 6.9 percent to $2.04, the lowest level since February 2009. The price of oil fell below $80 per barrel last week for the first time since Aug. 9. amid concern the global economy is headed for recession.

Misr Beni Suef Cement Co. (MBSC EY) declined 3.2 percent, the most since May 30, to 60 pounds. The Egyptian producer of the building material said shareholders approved increasing the company’s paid-up capital to 500 million Egyptian pounds ($84 million) from 400 million pounds. The company will use its reserves to finance the increase.
