MILAN — After 19 months of government-backed bankruptcy protection, the Gianfranco Ferré brand has a new owner.
According to sources, Prodos Capital Management LLC, a New York-based merchant bank, in a group with Samsung, has submitted a bid that has won over the state-appointed commissioners of the brand.
