PARIS — Devialet, a French maker of deluxe hi-fis, said on Monday it has raised $19 million in new funding for expansion, with luxury titan Bernard Arnault among the investors.
A total of $15 million was raised via a consortium of investors that also included Jacques-Antoine Granjon, chief executive officer and founder of online retailer Vente-Privée.com; Xavier Niel, founder of Internet firm Free and a co-owner of Le Monde with Pierre Bergé and Matthieu Pigasse, and Marc Simoncini, founder of dating Web site Meetic. The balance of the capital increase derives from existing investors.

"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)
