MILAN – Compagnie Financière Richemont has launched a voluntary tender offer on all ordinary shares of the Yoox Net-a-porter Group SpA at 38 euros per share, for a value of up to 2.77 billion euros. Richemont plans to acquire 51 percent of YNAP shares it does not already own.
“With this new step, we intend to strengthen Richemont’s presence and focus on the digital channel, which is becoming critically important in meeting luxury consumers’ needs,” said Johann Rupert, chairman of Richemont. “We see a meaningful opportunity to strengthen further Yoox Net-a porter Group’s leading positioning in luxury e-commerce, growing the business in existing and new geographies, increasing product availability and range, and continuing to develop unparalleled services and content for today’s highly discerning consumers. As part of our Group, Yoox Net-a-porter Group would continue to operate as a separate business, ensuring it remains a neutral and highly attractive platform for third party luxury brands.”

No word yet on honeymoon plans or, more interesting, the guest list. Kloss’ new sister-in-law, Ivanka Trump, did however share her congratulations when they couple became engaged in the summer. “So, so happy for you and Josh! I feel blessed to have you as a sister (!!!) Karlie and look forward to the happy memories we will create together as a family!” wrote Trump on Instagram.
