The Article gives, from a neutral point of view, a detailed description of the financial condition and stability analysis of the acquiring company - Agrokor Group and the takeover target Mercator Group on the basis of publicly available official sources of financial data. At the same time it shows the consequences and effects of the sale or nonsale of Mercator to Agrokor for all stakeholders, both in the short term, as in the long run. The focus is primarily on the often overlooked long-term effects on banks and the Slovenian food and processing industry. To conclude, there is also an alternative solution for the ownership of Mercator, which can also be applied to other stranded investments of companies which have landed in banks portfolios.

In time of economic downturn the importance of industrial policy is being revised. European counties are rethinking their industrial policies, that will focus on advantages of a country, sectoral orientation and analytical -diagnostically approach in managing development of entrepreneurship. Slovenia should- as the Netherlands did- focus on limiting subventions and introduce this analytical - diagnostically approach, however with competent governmental officers, that plan, implement and control measures of industrial policies, that would focus on industry and services. Government should refrain from solely giving subventions and provide organisation of missing markets, positive externalities and improved corporate governance.
