Poslovni sistem Mercator d.d. Key Developments

Mercator Reports Consolidated Earnings Results for the First Half of 2014

Mercator reported consolidated earnings results for the first half of 2014. For the first half of 2014, the company announced that it narrowed its consolidated net loss to EUR 13.7 million ($18.1 million) from EUR 15.1 million a year earlier. Consolidated revenue fell 4.2% on the year to EUR 1.3 billion through June. The drop in revenue is a result of changes in consumer behaviour as a response to a weakening purchasing power, stiff competition in all markets of the group's operations, and the closure of 35 underperforming business units as part of corporate restructuring, Mercator said.
