Vicini, the holding company of Giuseppe Zanotti, experienced a 43 percent sales increase to €115.3 million in 2013. Earnings before amortization (Ebitda) jumped by 135 percent to €21.9 million, and net earnings soared by 126 percent to almost €12 million. The main growth factors were the introduction of a men's line and the expansion of the range of accessories. Wholesale revenues represented 77 percent of the total turnover, but the company's new owners want Vicini to open many new stores. Two subsidiaries of L Capital, the investment fund supported by LVMH, acquired a 30 percent stake in the company last April.
