American accessories manufacturer Coach is one of the most likely bidders for the purchase of Stuart Weitzman luxury shoes. The completion of negotiations is scheduled for the end of this year. Two more candidates claim to be a real brand: the Brown Shoe shoe company and the private equity fund, the name of which has not yet been announced.
Stuart Weitzman, currently owned by Sycamore Partners, is valued between $ 600 million and $ 700 million. Its acquisition for either of the two companies - Coach and Brown Shoe - will mean the opportunity to enter the market for high-end goods, since at the moment they both operate in the middle price segment.
