TOKYO — Renown said Wednesday that it intends to sell the Aquascutum brand, confirming mounting speculation the label was on the block.
Speaking at a Tokyo press conference, Renown Inc. president Minoru Nakamura said the Japanese company’s board had finalized the asset sale as part of a wider restructuring plan, although “to whom to sell and at how much has not been decided.” WWD reported Oct. 7 that, according to industry sources, Aquascutum president and chief executive Kim Winser is preparing a management buyout of the company she runs. A spokesman for Winser had no comment Wednesday.
