Dimitrijević & Partners assisted Mercator in restructuring their business operations in BIH
During August and September 2017 Dimitrijević & Partners assisted
Mercator in series of transaction steps related to revised strategy for
Mercator business operations in Bosnia and Herzegovina.
In 2014 following the takeover of Mercator by Croatian concern Agrokor, Konzum was put in charge of all retail operations in Croatia and in Bosnia. Three years afterwards, Agrokor announced that they will restructure retail business in Bosnia and this included, among other things, that 83 ex- Mercator shops have been returned to Mercator.
Konzum BH and Mercator BH will operate separately, each responsible for their own stores in Bosnia and Herzegovina.
The Dimitrijević & Partners advisory team led by Stevan Dimitrijevic collaborated with Mercator’s Slovenian counsel Jadek & Pensa (led by Ozbej Merc) and international counsel, Clifford Chance (led by Loren Richards).
