Can Fin Homes share price tumbled on Tuesday, dropping as much as 8.1 percent, after the managing director and chief executive officer of the company Girish Kousgi resigned citing personal reasons. Can Fin Homes stock price was trading 3.5 percent lower at Rs 569 on BSE at 10:25 am.
Global brokerage Jefferies has a 'buy' rating on Can Fin Homes with a target price of Rs 730. The brokerage house notes that Kousgi's resignation is a setback for the company and uncertainty around management transition would be an overhang near term.

Kousgi's full term was till September 2024. The company has said that he will be discharged from his duties till the date of his relieving, though no definite timeline given has been given.
