FARFETCH Snaps Up LUXCLUSIF for Undisclosed Amount

Online luxury fashion retail platform FARFETCH Limited (FTCH) recently revealed that it has acquired a resale platform, LUXCLUSIF. The financial terms of the deal have been kept under wraps.

Following the news, shares of the company declined 2.8% to close at $34.98 in Thursday’s trading session, but this can be attributed to wider market concerns.

Implications of the Deal

The acquisition of LUXCLUSIF will enable FARFETCH to become one of the foremost platforms for pre-owned luxury for both customers and industry partners.

Post the buyout, the LUXCLUSIF team will operate FARFETCH’s Second Life platform service, integrating both existing and new partners into the program.

Management Commentary

The Chief Commercial and Sustainability Officer of FARFETCH, Giorgio Belloli, said, “LUXCLUSIF joining the FARFETCH group allows us to expand the company’s pre-owned offer for our customers, for brand and retail partners and for other suppliers of pre-owned products. We aim to become the leading global platform for pre-owned luxury.”
