ZAGREB, July 4 (Reuters) - The creditors of Croatia’s indebted food producer and retailer Agrokor passed on Wednesday a debt settlement deal that includes debt-to-equity swap and some loan write-offs to avert bankruptcy.
Holders of 80 percent of the 33.8 billion kuna ($5.32 billion) debt, including Russia’s Sberbank, voted in favour of the deal that will put the company in hands of creditors and bondholders. The vote took place in the Commercial court premises in Zagreb.
