MILAN — Italian jewelry firm Pomellato is eyeing brand extensions with watches and a fragrance, has plans to further develop the Asian and American markets and is evaluating a public listing. “We are thinking about it, it’s one of the possible hypotheses for Pomellato,” said chief executive officer Andrea Morante during the first “Luxury and Finance 2012” meeting at the Milan Stock Exchange on Thursday.
During the event, which, among its goals, aims to draw companies to consider an initial public offering, Pomellato and Brunello Cucinelli presented their brands to the international financial community. Meetings with management from Luxottica, Marcolin, Poltrona Frau, Salvatore Ferragamo, Tod’s and Yoox were also held but not open to the press.
