Pursuant to the resolution adopted at the Shareholders Assembly, Gorenje will be transformed from a joint stock company into a limited liability company. The transformation marks the completion of the takeover process that has left the company Hisense as the only remaining shareholder.
It introduces a simpler, one-tier corporate governance system without a separate Supervisory and Managing Board.
Simplified management also makes it easier for Gorenje operate synergistically with Hisense, and to focus more closely on development, design, and sale of products. With its locations in Europe, Gorenje is becoming an important development and manufacturing centre within the Hisense Group.
Hisense Co., Ltd. is a Chinese multinational major appliance and electronics manufacturer headquartered in Qingdao, Shandong province, China.

“By transforming Gorenje into a limited liability company, we are completing a successful process of searching for a strategic owner. Gorenje’s ownership has been consolidated, and with Hisense as the new owner and simplified corporate governance, we are laying solid foundations for the development of the Gorenje Group, its brands, and thereby the future of over 11,000 employees”, said the Chairman of the Board of Directors, Franjo Bobinac.
