Mining company set to buy majority of Harry Winston


The New York Times – 11/28/2003

Aber Diamond Corporation, a diamond mining and exploration company based in Toronto, said it intended to buy a majority interest in luxury jeweler Harry Winston Inc.

In 2000, Fenway Partners, a closely held private equity firm, spent $55 million to acquire a stake in the company.

Acquiring Harry Winston would give Aber a retail outlet for its diamonds.

Michel Dyens & Co. acted as financial advisor to Fenway Partners in the transaction.
