Clal Insurance Enterprises Holdings Ltd. (TASE: CLIS), controlled by Nochi Dankner, is about to sell Guard Insurance Group, the vehicle for the group's activity in the US, for a price somewhat in excess of $200 million. A formal announcement to the Tel Aviv Stock Exchange is expected on Monday.

Guard was acquired in 2007 for $120 million. In August 2011, the possibility was raised of a sale to US company Employers for $312 million.

If the price of the current deal is as reported, it would reflect a downturn in Guard's expected evaluation because of recent weak results.
