Slovenian food retailer Mercator receives bids from two firms

RBR Staff Writer Published 14 May 2013

The owners of Slovenian food retailer Mercator have received bids for their 53% equity in the firm.

A consortium of 12 firms and banks jointly control majority stake in the company.

The consortium is currently studying the two bids, following which they expect to hold talks with the bidders, reported Reuters.

According to local media, the bidders are Croatian food retailer Agrokor and investment fund Mid Europa Partners.

In 2012, Agrokor had offered €221 for each Mercator share but ultimately failed to buy the firm.

Mercator operates stores in Slovenia, Croatia, Bosnia, Montenegro, Serbia and Bulgaria.
