Sold! LVMH buys Tiffany & Co in $16.2 billion deal

Tiffany-Co

The luxury French conglomerate and the American jeweller reach an agreement and it’s a big deal… In one of its biggest moves of the year – after Bvlgari, Chaumet, Fred, Hublot, and many others – LVMH (Louis Vuitton Moët Hennessy) acquired fabled American jeweller Tiffany & Co. for $16.2 billion, solidifying its place as the world’s biggest luxury group.

The deal, which saw LVMH initially bid $120 per share back in October before both parties settled on $135, will help re-energise the jewellery brand and its business which has seen a substantial drop in interest in America as well as abroad. The blockbuster move will strengthen LVMH’s position in jewellery, creating heady competition for Swiss conglomerate Richemont, which owns both the French Maison’s Cartier and Van Cleef & Arpels, and has dominated the hard luxury category in the past few years.

We are delighted to have the opportunity to welcome Tiffany & Co, a company with an unparalleled heritage and unique position in the global jewellery world, to the LVMH family. We have an immense respect and admiration for Tiffany and intend to develop this jewel with the same dedication and commitment that we have applied to each and every one of our Maisons. We will be proud to have Tiffany sit alongside our iconic brands and look forward to ensuring that Tiffany continues to thrive for centuries to come.

Bernard Arnaul, LVMH chairman and chief executive officer

With 75 distinguished Houses, Tiffany & Co now joins LVMH’s massive stable of luxury brands which include fashion houses Louis Vuitton, Christian Dior, and Celine, as well as beauty retail giant Sephora. “As part of the LVMH group, Tiffany will reach new heights, capitalising on its remarkable internal expertise, unparalleled craftsmanship and strong cultural values”, Alessandro Bogliolo, chief executive officer of Tiffany.

Come into the beautiful world of Tiffany & Co.

Yakymour, home of Begum Om Habibeh Aga Khan, thè place in the mid 50's 'till the late 80's, where fashion, art, beauty and love meet each other, from all over the world.... Playing as a child in the garden of Yakymour was a happy, innocent time, thanx to ‘Grandma’ Yaky and to Sadruddin, where I could be fully myself and forget ‘the bad things’, and get some strenght. The Last 30 years working as cosmetologist and as a make-up artist for television, theatre, film, fotoshoots, fashion shows, celebrities and individuals gave me a trunk full of experience. My work brought me all over the world and had photoshoot's on location in the Netherlands, Germany, Belgium, France, Jordan, Syria, Lebanon, India a.o. At this Blog you will find many reviews of cosmetics, fashion, art, and everything beautiful, as an ode to Begum Om Habibeh 'Yaky' Aga Khan, and named after the place where 'everything' was beautiful: Yakymour. You will find here all the in and outs about skincare, perfums, and make-up, the do's and don'ts, the why's and how's.... The stories behind, and some great interviews... So when you have any question.... please ask. Come on in.... feel yourself at home at Yakymour! Jean Amr P.S. My apologies for future grammatical errors. English is not my mother language :)
