Tiffany Tumbles As LVMH Walks Away From Deal Financially Backed By ECB

It’s a shame: Even the blessing of a legion of consolidation-obsessed Wall Street analysts, and the direct financial backing of the ECB – which came to the rescue of Bernard Arnault, the LVMH boss and France’s richest man, during the great fiscal unraveling back in February – wasn’t enough to make the Tiffany deal go.

Bloomberg reported Wednesday morning that the deal between the two luxury businesses simply wouldn’t happen. One analyst described the news as a “thunderbolt from the blue” as a handful of lonely skeptics have once again been justified.

“This is a like a sudden thunderbolt in a blue sky,” Bernstein analyst Luca Solca writes by email. “I wonder if this is move is a definitive decision or only a prelude to a renegotiation of some sort”

Tiffany shares slump 15% on news that the $16 billion merger wouldn’t happen. LVMH dropped 0.5%, erasing earlier gains in Paris.
