LONDON — The Mysale Group, which operates flash sale sites in Australia, New Zealand, South East Asia and the U.S., has released more details of its initial public offering, with the company set to float on the London Stock Exchange’s AIM market on Monday.
The company has set its placing price at 2.26 pounds, or $3.80 at current exchange, an ordinary share, giving it a market capitalization of around 340 million pounds, or $571.8 million. On admission to the market, 41.2 percent of the company will be in free float.
The 40 million pounds, or $67.3 million, that the company plans to raise from the float will be used for marketing initiatives and member acquisition when Mysale enters new markets, the firm said, with an initial focus on the U.S. and the U.K. It will also go towards capital expenditure on the company’s warehouses, and contribute to “opportunistic strategic acquisitions” and working capital to support growth.
As reported, Topshop owner Sir Philip Green’s family interests took a 25 percent stake in Mysale for 87.5 million Australian dollars, or $80.9 million, last month. Also in May, MySale also acquired the shuttered U.K. flash sales Web site Cocosa, and plans to launch Mysale.co.uk in the next few weeks, using Cocosa’s 800,000-strong customer base.

For @massimogiorgetti of @msgm, the Nineties are his favorite decade. “They had a huge impact on my personal growth. What I like of the Nineties is that they are not so precise in terms of style as other decades…there was actually a bit of everything,” he said. As seen on MSGM’s Spring 2018 show: tie-dye and a bit of grunge, two styles that are synonymous with the decade #wwdfashion #wwddecades (📷: @kukukuba)
Breaking News: @hedislimane joins @celine as its new artistic, creative and image director. One of fashion’s preeminent image-makers and trendsetters, Slimane is to join the LVMH brand on Feb. 1 and unveil his first fashion proposition for men and women next September during Paris Fashion Week. It marks a major homecoming for Slimane, who cemented his reputation – and influenced men’s tailoring for more than a decade – as the designer of Dior Homme between 2000 and 2007. He went on to reinvent and ignite the house of Yves Saint Laurent, which he rechristened Saint Laurent, between 2012 and 2016 – all the while maintaining a close relationship with the Arnault family, which controls LVMH and Dior.

“Personally I believe the Eighties have been the richest and more vivacious period for international fashion,” Giorgio Armani said when asked what his favorite decade of fashion is. It was a moment of disruption and experimentation and only thinking back to the first years of that decade is always an emotion for me, for what they have meant to me and my work.” The influence is clear in @giorgioarmani spring 2018 collection, pictured here, which was full of bright colors and unexpected prints.
