LVMH Moët Hennessy Louis Vuitton SE (LVMH), the world’s leading luxury group, has signed an agreement to acquire Tiffany & Co, the New York-based global luxury jeweller. As per the definitive agreement, LVMH will acquire Tiffany for $135 per share in cash, in a transaction with an equity value of approximately €14.7 billion or $16.2 billion.
 
Founded in 1837 when Charles Lewis Tiffany opened the first store in downtown Manhattan, Tiffany today is the leading luxury brand originated in the United States and delights discerning customers in more than 300 stores around the globe. 
 
The acquisition of Tiffany will strengthen LVMH’s position in jewellery and further increase its presence in the United States. The addition of Tiffany will transform LVMH’s Watches & Jewellery division and complement LVMH’s 75 distinguished Houses.
 
“We are delighted to have the opportunity to welcome Tiffany, 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,” said Bernard Arnault, chairman and chief executive officer of LVMH.
 
“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,” said Roger N Farah, chairman of the board of directors of Tiffany.
 
“Tiffany has been focused on executing on our key strategic priorities to drive sustainable long-term growth. This transaction, which occurs at a time of internal transformation for our legendary brand, will provide further support, resources and momentum for those priorities as we evolve towards becoming The Next Generation Luxury Jeweller. As part of the LVMH group, Tiffany will reach new heights, capitalising on its remarkable internal expertise, unparalleled craftsmanship and strong cultural values,” said Alessandro Bogliolo, chief executive officer of Tiffany.
 
LVMH’s acquisition of Tiffany has been approved by the boards of directors of both companies. The transaction is expected to close in the middle of 2020 and is subject to customary closing conditions, including approval from Tiffany’s shareholders and the receipt of regulatory approvals.
