The businessman Miroslav Bogicevic has sold 50% of his share in the company Politika novine i magazini to Boban Rajic, the owner of Novosti, Bogicevic confirmed for Nova.rs.
– It’s all finalized, though technically not yet. It’s the Rajic brothers. There were another two offers, but I chose them after all. They were the most interested ones and the offer was the best. They also obliged in a way to invest in Politika – said Bogicevic, who is the owner of MB Farmakom.
He said that he believed them and that he had worked with them for over 20 years.
– They were the big buyers of my dairy. We have known each other for a long time and we have never had any problems. I trust them the most. To be honest, I like it that Politika was bought by Serbs. I am not that way inclined, but in this case, it’s a big brand – Bogicevic said.
When asked whether the sales and purchase agreement will be signed by Boban Rajic, the owner of Novosti, he answered affirmatively.
– Boban Rajic will sign the sales and purchase agreement – Bogicevic said.
When asked whether the agreement would specify the new owner’s obligations, Bogicevic said that it wouldn’t.
– Not in the agreement, but there are obligations to invest in Politika. They want to invest, they’ve convinced me of it. I believe them, they’ve never lied to me – he pointed out.
When asked whether he had sold Politika for EUR 8 million, he said that he couldn’t talk about it.
