Polegato’s LIR Doesn’t Rule Out Acquisitions, CEO Tells Il Sole

Aug. 20 (Bloomberg) -- Mario Moretti Polegato’s financial holding company LIR Srl may consider making acquisitions in the near future, Il Sole 24 Ore reported, citing Chief Executive Officer Maurizio D’Angelo.

While there isn’t a dossier on the table, the company’s liquidity allows it to be ready should growth opportunities arise, D’Angelo was cited as saying by Il Sole.

LIR owns 71 percent of Geox SpA, the Italian shoemaker founded by Polegato.
