Market Report, "Slovenia Food & Drink Report Q4 2015", published

From: Fast Market Research, Inc.
Published: Fri Sep 11 2015

After two consecutive years of contraction, the Slovenian food and drink market recorded modest growth in 2014. While we expect the positive trends in the Slovenian economy to persist in the near term , the recovery is anticipated to be slow and modest. As a result, we forecast weak growth in the Slovenian food and drink market with sales figures accelerating towards the second half of our forecast period.

Key Company Trends

Podravka Acquires Majority Stake In Zito: In May 2015, Croatia-based Podravka has reached an agreement to acquire a 51.55% stake in Slovenia-based food producer Zito for EUR33.03mn (USD36.91mn). As part of the agreement, Podravka will buy 183,386 shares of Zito at EUR180.1 (USD201.24) each. Podravka must offer to buy the rest of Zito's shares in due course, in line with Slovenian legislation. The deal values the entire company at EUR64mn (USD71.5mn). However, the actual price will be lower as Zito has treasury shares worth around a tenth of the entire issue. The deal still requires approval from competition authorities.
