Delek Petroleum, a unit of Delek Group, has sold 1.5 million shares in its subsidiary Delek US Holdings for $42 million to a foreign financial institution, the company said on Sunday.

Delek sold the 2.5 percent stake at $27.78 a share after the market closed on Thursday.

Delek US shares fell 6.4 percent on Friday to $26.76.

As a result of the sale, Delek will cease to consolidate Delek US results in its financial statements as of the second quarter.
