Cesare Paciotti is studying the possibility of opening up its capital to private equity funds to finance its international expansion. The group has annual revenues of around €150 million, of which 60 percent is achieved in Italy and 40 percent abroad. Paciotti aims to invert the percentage over the next three years. The group has 36 mono-brand stores worldwide and is scheduled to open shops in Beirut and Macao in the coming weeks. A second store is scheduled to be inaugurated in Beijing in the second half of the year.
