PARIS — Hermès International continues to strengthen its barricades against a potential creeping takeover by LVMH Moët Hennessy Louis Vuitton.
At its annual shareholders’ general meeting on May 29, the French luxury house will propose naming Nicolas Puech, the single largest family shareholder, as the 11th member of the supervisory board. It will also submit a change in statutes requiring holders of more than 0.5 percent of shares to register them to their name. The measures were detailed in the company’s 2011 annual report.

"That's something that resonates with me too because I'm so locked into a number. If I go over that number it completely ruins my day so it's nice to get detached from the number on the scale." - Chelsea Handler on Kelly LeVeque's book "Body Love." #wwdeye (📷: John Salangsang)
