And now that the deal is finalized, it’s generally been regarded as a coup for both companies: LVMH can help Tiffany grow and connect with younger, hipper audiences, while Tiffany will make LVMH a major competitor in the jewelry sector while increasing the company’s foothold into American markets (fresh off the opening of the company’s controversial new Louis Vuitton workshop in Texas). “Following a strategic review that included a thoughtful internal process and expert external advice, the board has concluded that this transaction with LVMH provides an exciting path forward with a group that appreciates and will invest in Tiffany’s unique assets and strong human capital, while delivering a compelling price with value certainty to our shareholders,” Roger N.
