We will conclude the negotiations regarding the sale of up to 50 per cent of the shares of the Maxi supermarket chain by the end of this year and that is when we will know if we have new partners. Besides Delhaize of Belgium, we have received bids from multiple investment funds from both the EU and the USA. The reason for the sale does not lie in financial difficulties, as there are none. Across the globe, capital is put on market at the moment when its worth the most, when partners ask for it and when the move is in line with strategic development plans. We have such in Serbia, the region and in new markets, Jelena Krstovic, director of corporate communications at Delta Holding, says for Blic.
Krstovic refused to disclose any details of the potential partners and the percentage of shares they are prepared to buy out, as it would breach the agreement on the confidentiality of all negotiations.
– This is a landmark year for us. On 12 December we are marking ten years since the founding of Maxi, while next year on 4 February it will have passed two decades since the founding of Delta. We have shown longevity in turbulent times because the company is not managed by a single man, but a system. An management organization such as this one is the only one which has proved to be successful anywhere in the world, added Krstovic.
Have there been any failures by Delta?
– There have been some gaffes in terms of business decisions and staff acquisitions. Not all businesses are for every moment.

BELGRADE — Delta Holding President Miroslav Mikovic has filed charges against former associate Milka Forcan, according to local media.

Mikovic, Serbias best-known tycoon, is suing Forcan over unresolved issues regarding the ownership of the Delta Maxi retail unit of the country’s largest privately-held company, but also over the business moves she made in in the Jugohemija company.
Several Belgrade dailies wrote that Mikovic has filed charges, but also, that Forcan would counter-sue.
Ownership issues between Mikovic and Forcan and her family have led to the break-up of the dominant Serbian business partnership two months ago.
According to media reports, Mikovic wished to sell Delta Maxi in its entirety to a Belgian company, but Forcan and her sister, who have shares in the company, did not agree to do so. The two allegedly contest their ownership share.
Reports also state that Forcan transferred some property of Jugohemija to another company. She is the head of the board of directors in Jugohemija, while her sister is the general director.
