Tiffany sued LVMH over the delay in the merger deal

11.09.2020 News

The multinational jewelry company Tiffany has filed a lawsuit in the court of the state of Delaware (USA) against the French luxury goods manufacturer LVMH (Louis Vuitton Moet Hennessy) for delaying the latest merger process. This was announced on Wednesday by the press service of the jewelry company.

According to press service, LVMH group intentionally has not sent the documents for antitrust regulators to tighten the agreement. Tiffany attributes this to the French government’s desire to persuade the United States to impose additional duties on a number of French goods, including luxury goods.

“We regret that we had to take such action, in addition to initiating litigation to protect our company and shareholders. Tiffany is confident that it has fulfilled all the obligations of the merger agreement and is committed to completing the agreement within the deadlines, agreed last year. Tiffany expects the same from LVMH “, – the words of the chairman of the board of directors Roger Farah.

First, the merger was scheduled for the end of summer, but in late August, however, France-Press reported that the companies postponed the deadline by three months due to the crisis caused by the corona virus pandemic, greatly slowed the negotiation and execution of financial documents. According to the agency, Tiffany’s financial situation has deteriorated significantly during the pandemic, especially during the quarantine period. The company suffered losses of $ 65 million in February-April, while a year earlier in the same period its revenue was $ 125 million.

Owned by the French billionaire Bernard Arnault concern of LVMH, which is the world leader in luxury goods, announced in November last year that it intends to buy Tiffany for € 16.2 billion. The concern believes that such an agreement will allow LVMH to strengthen its position in the United States – the world’s second most important luxury goods market. Commercial operations in the United States provide LVMH with 24% of working capital.
