LVMH in Guinness book of world records

  1. This is interesting:

    Richest Luxury Goods Maker
    France's Bernard Arnault, who heads the luxury goods empire LVMH (Louis Vuitton Moet Hennessy), is worth an estimated $12.6 billion. LVMH owns brands such as Christian Dior, Givenchy, Kenzo, and Louis Vuitton, as well as top drinks brands including Dom Perignon and Hennessy. The company had total sales of $8 billion in 1999. The strength of the luxury goods market led to his fortune doubling between 1999 and 2000. He and his family own 47% of LVMH and he also has considerable interests in the new media business, including a stake in Interactive Collector, an umbrella site which is home to over 200 auction houses, dealers and galleries worldwide, boasting over $1 million worth of art, antiques and collectibles.
