Versace plans to find partner by year’s end -CEO

MILAN, Sept 20 (Reuters) – Versace expects to finalise a
shortlist for buyers interested in a minority stake in the
Italian fashion house by mid-October and decide on a partner by
the end of 2013, Chief Executive Gian Giacomo Ferraris said on
Friday.

The fashion house, whose glittering gowns are worn by stars
such as Lady Gaga and Madonna, is seeking to strengthen its
balance sheet to help fund expansion in overseas markets such as
Asia before a possible listing further down the road.
