Finiper operation

Last minute news, on all major financial headings. Finiper, the holding controlling “Grande I” hypermarkets and Unes supermarkets (2,5 billion euro of consolidated proceeds) is again 100% Italian, thanks to an operation leading to the acquiring of the French share, by its founder Marco Brunelli, one of the “fathers” of the Italian GDO. An operation quickly and surprisingly carried out, and not in such an easy moment for the large-scale distribution. Brunelli has so reached an agreement to regain that 20% of the group’s capital left to Carrefour, in 1998; an operation not motivated by speculation levers but by organization demands to enhance work, in terms of independence and freedom, as the founder himself explains. Marco Brunelli (born in 1927), former antiquarian, in 1974 invents the very first hypermarket in Italy and in 1984 the first mall, and he’s also co-founder of Esselunga and GS supermarket chains (together with Rockfeller, Bernardo and Guido Caprotti).
26 are today Iper hypermarkets by Finiper, together with its150 supermarkets; for 2010 Brunelli hasn’t planned any new Iper but the opening of some new supermarkets is not to rule out.
