Rosato is one of four businesses that had until now constituted the core of MBFG’s jewellery involvement. The shares have been sold to the investment fund Borghesi, held by the Rosato family. This sale brings $7.7 million back into the group and contributes to the $60 million that it plans to save this year; a total $15 - $20 million will come from releases from its jewellery activities.

“The strategy of MBFG is to concentrate on its base activities, clothing and leather, which currently represent more than 90% of the group’s turnover,” explained the Italian group. “It is all in accordance with our special attention on optimising our business and the continued rationalisation within the group, comprising of the ending of non-principle and/or non-profitable activities”.
