Goldman Sachs has kicked off the sale of R.M. Williams, sending information on the company's growth plans to interested parties. The new figures and the asking price published in the press are confusing and could not be verified by press time. We have already reported on its latest financial results (Shoe Intelligence Vol. 21 N° 13+14 of July 17, 2019). The Australian shoe company is currently the property of L Catterton Asia, a joint venture founded in 2016 through a partnership between Groupe Arnault, LVMH and the Catterton fund. Catterton acquired a majority stake in R.M. Williams in 2013 from Ken Cowley, former head of News Corp Australia.
