Clessidra in Binding Negotiations to Sell 100% of Capital

The Roberto Cavalli and Buccellati brands may be readying for an indirect handover.
Clessidra Sgr, which controls the Italian labels, has initiated exclusive and binding negotiations with Italmobiliare SpA, an investment group owned by the Pesenti family.
Claudio Sposito, chairman and chief executive officer of the Milan-based private equity firm who died in January, founded Clessidra in 2003, building it into one of the most active firms in Italy’s luxury and fashion sector. His widow Manuela Sposito is looking at selling 100 percent of Clessidra’s share capital. Sources peg the price tag at around 20 million euros, or $ 22.5 million at current exchange.
Market sources speculate whether chairman Francesco Trapani, who was rumored to have made an offer to buy Clessidra, will stay on. A former Bulgari ceo, before joining Clessidra in 2014, Trapani was chairman of LVMH Moët Hennessy Louis Vuitton’s watches and jewelry division. After lengthy negotiations, the acquisition of the Roberto Cavalli brand crystalized under Trapani’s watch. Clessidra also has a 35 percent stake in Harmont & Blaine SpA.
Clessidra said Italmobiliare’s offer was, “among the many received, preferable and worthy” to be followed through and that the negotiations were initiated to “quickly reach the underwriting of a definitive contract.” The agreement is subject to the

Traub Capital Makes First Investment in Knot Standard

Traub Capital, the investment arm of Marvin Traub Associates, has made its first deal and it’s for a bespoke men’s wear company.
The firm has purchased a “significant minority stake” in Knot Standard, an online custom men’s suit maker with showrooms in seven cities around the world.
“They were a client of ours a few years ago and we realized they were great people and had a great concept,” said Mortimer Singer, president and chief executive officer of Marvin Traub Associates. “We’ve been watching them grow and succeed and believe we can add the top-spin to help them grow further.”
He declined to provide a figure for the size of the investment.
Singer said investing in Knot Standard is “a new chapter for us. They’re quite cutting-edge in their approach.” He said the company is a prime example of “the intersection between customization in the men’s wear business and e-commerce/omnichannel,” both of which are growing segments of the apparel market.
Singer said that while there are a lot of e-commerce-driven businesses that got their start online, Knot Standard is using the “ability and know-how” it acquired as an online player to “guide them to retail locations.
“They started as a men’s bespoke custom clothing company online and

Praise for Fourth Edition of Cost of Capital Workbook and Technical Supplement “Pratt and Grabowski went the extra mile to supplement their magnum opus by providing this Workbook and Technical Supplement. As a finance professor for many years, I know from experience that students and teachers really value supplements to textbooks. It allows the teacher to help the student to review and apply what was presented in the text, and the PowerPoints are a great service to teachers in course preparation. The website provides various worksheets that show the inner workings of the models. I enthusiastically recommend the Workbook and Technical Supplement to finance professors and teachers and their students. -Daniel L. McConaughy, PhD, ASA, Professor of Finance, California State University, Northridge, Valuation Services, Crowe Horwath LLP “The Workbook and Technical Supplement provides a detailed tutorial on understanding and executing the theoretical concepts explained in the Fourth Edition. This supplement is three books in one. Part One is a step-by-step tutorial on estimating certain key components of the cost of equity capital. Part Two provides a bridge between the theory and some practical applications, such as estimating the cost of capital for real property. Parts Three and Four allow the readers to test their comprehension of the concepts and identify areas for a review. It is almost as good as having Professors Pratt and Grabowski looking over your shoulder to ensure that one is both comprehending and correctly implementing the complex concepts.” -Ashok Abbott, PhD, Associate Professor of Finance, College of Business & Economics, West Virginia University “This text provides the most comprehensive coverage of cost of capital issues that I have seen to date. Messrs. Pratt and Grabowski have created a very accessible and lucid treatment of what most would consider an opaque subject. The Fourth Edition is especially important for its new topics as well as expanded co

As Duggar Dad Ran On A Political Platform Saying Rape And Incest Merited Capital Punishment, He Was Covering Up His Son’s Actions

In 2002, Jim Bob Duggar argued that rape and incest merited the death penalty. But that same year, one of his own sons reportedly committed incest, and Duggar allegedly covered it up.

While running for U.S. Senate in Arkansas, the patriarch of the Duggar clan — the family that is the central focus of the TLC reality TV show “19 Kids And Counting” — said that rape and incest should be punishable by death. Yet during his run, he reportedly knew that one of his sons, Josh, had molested one of his daughters.

Gawker Media dug up a cached version of Duggar’s political platform from the 2002 Republican primaries.

When asked if he believed abortion should be legal if a woman had been raped, Duggar said, “If a woman is raped, the rapist should be executed instead of the innocent unborn baby. … Rape and incest represent heinous crimes and as such should be treated as capital crimes.”

Duggar lost the primary election in May 2002 to the incumbent, Sen. Tim Hutchinson.

While Duggar was running on a platform that included this position about rape, the first allegations that Josh had molested a child surfaced. According to In Touch Weekly, which broke the story, a female minor told Duggar in March 2002 that Josh, who was 14 at the time, had been sexually touching her as she slept. Josh admitted as much to his parents in July 2002.

A police report suggests that the first victim who came forward lived in the same home as Josh. In March 2003, more minors accused Josh of touching their breasts and genitals. The police report suggests that four of the five total victims were Josh’s sisters.

Duggar did not alert authorities. He reportedly did not punish his son at all, except to send him to live and work with a family friend for a while.

When Josh returned, his father allegedly took him to speak with Arkansas State Trooper Jim Hutchens, who gave the boy a “very stern talk.” According to In Touch, Hutchens is now serving 56 years in jail for child pornography.

The authorities first heard about the allegations in 2006, when an anonymous woman contacted “The Oprah Winfrey Show” with details of the accusations. The police launched an investigation, and In Touch reports five victims confirmed that Josh had touched their breasts and genitals.

Reportedly, the police did not press charges because the statute of limitations had expired.

The Duggar family could not be reached for comment. TLC did not respond to a request for comment.

Mind Over Matter: Why Intellectual Capital is the Chief Source of Wealth


Praise for Mind Over Matter Why Intellectual capital is tHe Chief Source of Wealth”Ron Baker has written another great book on the thoughts and theories on intellectual capital.As usual, he has an awesome depth of content, knowledge, and thought. A great read.”Reed Holden, founder, Holden Advisors Corp., www.holdenadvisors.com, and coauthor, The Strategy and Tactics of Pricing and Pricing with Confidence: 10 Ways to Stop Leaving Money on the Table”At a time when the virtues that made America greatindividualism, hard work, and free tradeare openly debated by well-meaning politicians, Ron Baker gives us Mind Over Matter. It is a story detailing the triumph of human spirit, imagination, and creativity. Ron tells us what the ‘knowledge economy’ really means. He gives a prescription for transforming human and intellectual capital into the foundation for sustainable prosperity. Mind Over Matter is a provocative book deserving of a thoughtful read. It is a timeless message to be treasured for generations.”Robert G. Cross, Chairman and CEO, Revenue Analytics, Inc., www.revenueanalytics.com”Ron Baker is an absolute master at challenging the ‘physical fallacy,’ e.g., the basis on which we assign value to businesses by focusing on tangible rather than intangible assets. This book builds on his previous books and helps the reader understand how critical intellectual capital is to the key to success in the twenty-first century. Ron pulls from the greatest business thinkers and economists,?from Drucker to Karl Sveiby as well as current company success stories to fund his rich gold mine of proof. The biggest benefit of the book is to change the paradigm of those who are the passive keepers of the ‘books.’ This is a must-read for anybody who wants to flourish in the age of intellectual capital.”Sheila Kessler, PhD, President, Competitive Edge, www.CompetitiveEdge.com”This book helps us understand some of the origins and sources that have led Ron Baker to the many contributi

Capital Intentions: Female Proprietors in San Francisco, 1850-1920

Capital Intentions: Female Proprietors in San Francisco, 1850-1920


Late nineteenth-century San Francisco was an ethnically diverse but male-dominated society bustling from a rowdy gold rush, earthquakes, and explosive economic growth. Within this booming marketplace, some women stepped beyond their roles as wives, caregivers, and homemakers to start businesses that combined family concerns with money-making activities. Edith Sparks traces the experiences of these women entrepreneurs, exploring who they were, why they started businesses, how they attracted customers and managed finances, and how they dealt with failure.Using a unique sample of bankruptcy records, credit reports, advertisements, city directories, census reports, and other sources, Sparks argues that women were competitive, economic actors, strategizing how best to capitalize on their skills in the marketplace. Their boardinghouses, restaurants, saloons, beauty shops, laundries, and clothing stores dotted the city’s landscape. By the early twentieth century, however, technological advances, new preferences for name-brand goods, and competition from large-scale retailers constricted opportunities for women entrepreneurs at the same time that new opportunities for women with families drew them into other occupations. Sparks’s analysis demonstrates that these businesswomen were intimately tied to the fortunes of the city over its first seventy years.
