The year 2018 was defined by the search for a strategic partner, integration into the Hisense Group, and Gorenje Group's financial stabilization
Last year was a watershed year for Gorenje, as we got a new 100-percent owner, the Chinese corporation Hisense. Thus, we became a part of a global, financially very stable corporate group, which affords us significant potential for Gorenje's future growth and development, access to new markets, new technologies and procurement sources, and many other synergies. In 2018, we thus invested immense effort into the strategic project, both in the first part of the year until the completion of the takeover, and in the remaining part when we worked with the new strategic owner on the challenging and extensive process of integration with the Hisense group. The very search for a strategic partner and the ensuing integration activities, however, resulted in considerable fluctuation in our downstream and upstream markets.
