Father and son have been focused on the hostile takeover of Grupo Empresarial Antioqueño. Although they did not manage to take control of Grupo Sura’s board of directors, they forced the conglomerate of companies to sign an agreement that will allow them to take over Grupo Nutresa’s food business. They are also bidding for a significant participation in Grupo Éxito. They have submitted two offers, so far rejected, but a new one is not ruled out, which is in line with the conditions set by Daniel Kretinsky, a Czech investor who arrived as a lifesaver of Grupo Casino, owner of the Colombian retailer. The Gilinskis, through Jaime Gilinski, are ranked 491st in the Bloomberg Billionaire Index with a net worth of US$5.43 billion, which this year has grown by US$1.45 billion.
