SINGAPORE — L Capital Asia, the private equity fund set up by LVMH Moët Hennessy Louis Vuitton, has bought 49.9 percent of Australian heritage outfitter R.M. Williams.
A price for the transaction was not disclosed, but press reports estimate that L Capital spent around 50 million Australian dollars, or $52.5 million at current exchange, on the deal. LVMH’s investment arm typically takes out minority stakes in companies, though it purchased a majority holding in Melbourne-based food emporium Jones the Grocer last year.

"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)
