French group Louis Vuitton Moet Hennessy has resumed negotiations on the purchase of American Jewelry brand Tiffany.
French group Louis Vuitton Moet Hennessy resumed negotiations on the purchase of an American jewelry brand Tiffany. Thus, one of the largest deals will likely take place in the world market of luxury goods.
Parties have started a new round of negotiations on the merger. Companies eliminate mutual lawsuits after the conflict began in the third quarter of 2020. According to the Financial Times, LVMH is considering buying the Tiffany jewelry house at a $130 per share rate. Against the latest news's backdrop, the jewelry manufacturer's shares went up in price on the stock exchange by 5%, to $129.
Negotiations on the merger of LVMH and Tiffany began in late 2019. The parties agreed on a deal worth $16.2 billion, which is valued at $135 per share. In 2020, the deal finally broke down, and the parties appealed to the courts for a stay on their mutual claims. After the French giant abandoned the agreement, the shares of Tiffany temporarily fell to 120 dollars.
