Kretinsky increases stake in Casino

Kretinsky increases stake in Casino

Vesa Equity Investment, Daniel Kretinsky's investment fund, has increased its stake in French retailer Casino to above the 5 % threshold. Analysts now wonder of the Metro owner might be aiming for further consolidation.

?

Sign of trust

Vesa Equity Investment, owned by Kretinsky and his Slovak partner Patrik Tkac, now owns 5.64?% of the holding Groupe Casino. They took a stake in the suffering French retailer last September, and straight away became its second largest shareholder with 4.63?% of the shares. A new press release now reiterates earlier statements that Casino is "best-positioned retail group on the French market and one of the European leaders best able to respond to the profound changes in the sector."

?

Casino CEO Jean-Charles Naouri sees the increased investment as "confidence of professional investors in the sector in our capacity for innovation and execution." He therefore repeats his opinion that a member of Vesa Equity should be included in Casino's board of directors.

Kretinsky and Tkac are major shareholders in the German Metro group and also in Mall, an e-commerce company active in Central and Eastern Europe. Analysts wonder if their increased stake in Casino means Vesa is looking into a closer collaboration between these companies.
