UK retailer Tesco has announced its acquisition of HIT, Poland's largest food retailer. The deal includes 13 existing hypermarkets and two currently under construction. These will complement the 47 stores Tesco already operates in Poland, which generate some £390m (US$592m). HIT generated sales of £337m last year from 13 hypermarkets and has net assets of £17m. However, it also has debts of £83m.
