The sale of Mercator Poslovni Sistem d.d. to Croatia’s Agrokor d.d. will inject needed cash into Slovenian banks, helping stabilize the country’s financial system as it scrambles to avert a bailout, the sellers said.
“A successful sale of Mercator would increase capital inflow to its shareholders, including the financial institutions that need additional capital,” a sellers group said by e-mail on June 14 through Ljubljana-based PR firm Futura. “This would help stabilize Slovenia’s banking system in accordance with European Union demands.”
