Well it was only a question of time, but interesting that it’s Chanel And not Richemont 🤣

I think Chanel matching better than Richemont, Chanel is Paris and Journe is from Paris.

Is this being read as a total sale of the company? Is FPJ no longer an independant? I believe AP owns the same % of Richard Mille.

First 20% and option of the rest, in five years they have 100%. Congratulations to FPJ, well done! RM - RP and RP - AP )

Ah, yes. I was so sure FPJ would never do this I'm a little sad about it.

Is the option to buy 100% speculation on your part or are you confirming? Thank you...this is very interesting.

A global player like CHANEL dont buy 20% without option to buy more. When the buy more, this is only question of time, now they have one leg inside. For FPJ it is a life insurance to survive in a market with four big players. CHANEL keep his back free. You are rigth, he is from Marseille and later in Paris for his first steps. My mistake! If it is not a Paris story, so it is a French story.

Journe is from Marseille (yes he made his first steps in Paris) but this agreement is not a Paris story.
