LONDON — Compagnie Financière Richemont SA took a bigger step into the e-commerce arena Thursday with the purchase of the remaining 67 percent of Net-a-porter.com, the online fashion retailer. The purchase price was not disclosed, but the deal values all of Net-a-porter at 350 million pounds, or $532 million at current exchange.
