Đurić is the second largest owner (19.1%) and was appointed today at the meeting of the Management Board of this company.

Đurić is in favor CAPITAL confirmed that he was appointed to that position, but noted that he “does not see himself permanently in that position.”

“I was appointed to this position because I have been part of this company for 20 years and I know the whole situation, but it will only be temporary, until we find a better solution. In the long term, I cannot be the general manager due to other business obligations”, explained Đurić and added that Mijić will remain at the head of “Autoprevoza” GS enterprise, which is owned by “Autoprevoza” AD.

In the previous period, there were a lot of stories that there could be a change in the ownership structure of this company, but Đurić claims that for now everything remains as it is.

“There were discussions within “Autoprevoz” to consolidate capital, but no concrete agreements were reached and the situation will not change. I still think it would be good, because that’s the only way we can enter into more serious investments, but for now there will be no changes”, he stated.

It has been rumored for a long time that some transport companies from Banjaluka want to buy Đurić’s share in “Autoprevoz”, and he admits that there were offers and talks with “Žak Turs”.

What is the role of the company “Žak Tours”?

For a long time, rumors have been circulating in Banja Luka that some transport companies from this city want to buy “Autoprevoz”. The last information is related to the company “Žak Tours”. On this occasion, we contacted co-owner Žarko Gaković, who, when asked by a CAPITAL journalist if the information that he was interested in buying “Autoprevoz” was correct, briefly said:He wouldn’t talk about it at all“. Unofficially, “Žak Tours” has long wanted to take over some of the profitable lines held by “Autoprevoz”, which is why it lobbied the former and current city administration. By taking an ownership stake, he would be closer to that goal.

At one point, “Žak Turs” proposed to buy my ownership share, and I had to explain to him that he would not gain anything by doing so. Someone who would buy my share is just stepping into my position, but I can’t manage it myself, because I don’t have a 51 percent share and the status of the majority owner. In order for someone to take over the management of the company, he must have a majority stake in his hands, I don’t have that. I am the majority owner together with my partners Živko Babić and Vid Dubočanin”, said Đurić and clarified that it would be necessary to buy out his partners as well, if someone wants to be the majority owner in “Autoprevoz”.

He emphasized that, for this reason, he does not plan to sell his ownership stake for the time being. What is the attitude of his partners?

The largest individual co-owner of “Autoprevoza” is Živko Babić with 24.8 percent and his son Borislav Babić, who confirmed that his father does not plan to sell his share in this company.

“The other co-owners have the same attitude”, said Babić, who is also a member of the Management Board of “Autoprevoza”.

“We will sell some of the company’s property, the land located in the Kumsale settlement, and provide certain funds, so that they can continue to fight and work”, Babic said.
