In the opinion of legal experts, Gorenje, d.d., President and CEO Franjo Bobinac acted lawfully by disclosing information to the Prime Minister of the Republic of Slovenia
On July 25, 2016, we published the information that Gorenje, d.d., and Panasonic Corporation had signed on July 13, 2016, a set of legal documents allowing Panasonic to conduct partial due diligence investigation of the Gorenje Group. In September 2016, the media published an allegation by the Securities Market Agency (ATVP) that it had, in relation with the said due diligence procedure, "filed a criminal complaint against one natural and one legal person for suspicion of perpetration of a criminal offence of abuse of inside information pursuant to Article 238, Paragraph 2 of the Criminal Code." Some media outlets also reported that the criminal complaint filed by the ATVP was against Gorenje, d.d., President and CEO Franjo Bobinac, because he had informed the Prime Minister of the Republic of Slovenia, before the information was publicly announced, about the due diligence being conducted by the Panasonic Corporation at the Gorenje Group, which could lead to an increase in Panasonic’s equity share in Gorenje, d.d.
