Lib­er­al­iz­a­tion of the Fuel Mar­ket in Slov­e­nia – Eval­u­ation of the im­pact...
Pub­lished on ceeleg­al­mat­ters.com on 07 Decem­ber 2021When in Septem­ber 2020 the Slov­e­ni­an gov­ern­ment de­cided that price con­trol meas­ures in the fuel products mar­ket were no longer ne­ces­sary and fully lib­er­al­ized the mar­ket, one of the ex­pec­ted be­ne­fits was a pos­it­ive im­pact on the price com­pet­i­tion.
Life Sci­ence M&A Deals on the Rise in Slov­e­nia
Pub­lished on ceeleg­al­mat­ters.com­For­eign in­vestors of all types were in­creas­ingly in­ter­ested in Life Sci­ence (LS) com­pan­ies even be­fore COV­ID-19 emerged. It is no won­der that Slov­e­ni­an LS com­pan­ies are of par­tic­u­lar ap­peal, since this highly in­nov­at­ive com­munity sig­ni­fic­antly con­trib­uted to Slov­e­nia be­ing ranked 21st in this year’s Bloomberg In­nov­a­tion In­dex. Some say COV­ID-19 cata­lyzed the new deals this year, but they were more likely fostered by the new in­vest­ment op­por­tun­it­ies that keep pop­ping up with each in­nov­at­ive solu­tion offered by the re­l­at­ively small (and re­l­at­ively in­ex­pens­ive) com­pan­ies in Slov­e­nia. The race to ac­quire these in­nov­at­ive scale-ups and start-ups has be­come in­creas­ingly com­pet­it­ive.
Slov­e­nia: Com­mer­cial Leases in the Grip of the COV­ID-19 Epi­dem­ic
Pub­lished on ceeleg­al­mat­ters.comThe COV­ID-19 epi­dem­ic and con­sequent re­strict­ive meas­ures strongly af­fected Slov­e­nia’s eco­nomy, in­clud­ing the coun­try’s rent­al mar­ket. The COV­ID-19 epi­dem­ic im­pacted all com­mer­cial leases, with tour­ism, hos­pit­al­ity, and to an ex­tent re­tail among the sec­tors suf­fer­ing most. Com­mer­cial prop­er­ties with strong ten­ants such as IT & Life Sci­ence com­pan­ies and pub­lic sec­tor en­tit­ies proved to be much more re­si­li­ent than com­mer­cial prop­er­ties de­pend­ent on ten­ants from dis­tressed sec­tors.
