LVMH reports Q1 sales; revenue advanced 4% to €7.21 billion; Wine & spirits, Cognac, Belvedere vodka down on sales.
Analysts predicted € 7.4 billion. Sales climbed 6%, excluding acquisitions, disposals and currency swings. Louis Vuitton sales to domestic consumers in Europe slightly improved year-on-year.
Wines and spirits sales fell 3% on an organic basis. The trend is explained by the performance of cognac and Belvedere vodka in China, linked to current destocking by retailers.
LVMH is introducing more expensive products at handbag maker Louis Vuitton, while increasing investment at some of its smaller fashion brands amid competition from lower-priced labels such as Michael Kors and Coach. Prada last week forecasted slowing same-store sales growth in the financial year through January 2015, citing a strong euro and weakening demand in China.
Sales of fashion and leather goods climbed 9% on an organic basis, compared with a 3% gain in Q1 of 2013. The division’s total sales advanced 11%, boosted by last year’s acquisition of Italian cashmere clothier Loro Piana and British shoe brand Nicholas Kirkwood.
LVMH doesn’t report earnings at the end of Q1. The shares rose 1% last week to € 136.45 in Paris, giving the company a market value of € 69.3 billion.
It is estimated that the luxury market will probably grow 5-6% annually though 2017

Djamila Celina Melcherts; next supermodel to watch out for -
Personality, presence and instant name recognition have made her an international success. This girl has done it all. We've already singled her out for her personal style and business ventures so that's another tick in her box, but now's the time to elaborate. Djamila Celina Melcherts is one of the few models currently working who are considered legitimate high fashion models yet are also known for their distinct personalities. Her flawless runway experience and quirky personality means this girl has got smarts beyond being a mere clotheshorse and TV Host. She's a hit with fashion's tastemakers, starred in a slew of campaigns and she has successfully bridged the commercial/high fashion worlds by walking for many fashion designers and high end cosmetics brands.
We think Djamila's commercial beauty and perfect figure will see her land her own cosmetics, swimwear or lingerie line in the not-too-distant future
While already successful, give her some time, and we're predicting that she's got the taste level and business skills to oversee her own brand
She’s living the life
Djamila Celina is also a role model and the face for one of the world largest Private equity funds worldwide active in fashion, tech and newmedia, the Monarch Tech fund, that is backed by Private Equity and Venture Capital firm Monarch Capital Partners. The fund invest syndicated seed rounds in fashion brands, tech, music, newmedia, brand management and entertainment, while holding additional funds for follow-on funding.

Video startups consolidating; music streaming services expanding; Photography: TV Presenter Djamila Celina Melcherts
In the US, Break Media and Alloy Digital — two long-time producers of video content outside of the YouTube bubble — are expected to announce a merger.
The move is the latest in a long line of video companies in a fragmented market that have decided to consolidate in order to gain more traction from a mass audience.
Earlier this year Maker Studios purchased well-known video site Blip, and last year Alloy acquired DBG. And those that aren’t consolidating are raising massive amounts of funding from Private Equity companies and tech funds to build a business that plays nice with YouTube, but ultimately wants to strike out as its own video network — thus cutting out YouTube’s cut of the revenue made on its content.
As for the merger, both Break and Alloy produce short video clips that are targeted at a younger audience, which make them a good match for each other. The two companies will be rebranded as Defy Media, with Break and Alloy each holding a 50 percent stake in the new venture.
The newly formed Defy Media will now have a combine reach of 30 million YouTube subscribers and about 50 million monthly visitors to both websites .
With solid Private Equity funding the message could be further extended beyond the digital space through established media platforms that connect with consumers as they move throughout their day. The brand message reaches the right audience in the right place, at the right time.
In Europe companies like Zoomin.TV, 5minutenTV (http://5minuten.tv/), SweetnezzTV (http://www.sweetnezztv.nl/) offers viewers the possibility to watch specific content and news whenever and wherever they want to watch it.
These companies with integrated content, distribution, and superb technology offering has proven to be a winning combination for media agencies, advertisers, content providers and distribution partners in the European on-line video industry. Zoomin.TV
Together, these companies with Zoomin.TV leading the pack, are the largest producers of online video news in Europe. All of the them are expanding operations in Europe and beyond.
Long-awaited music streaming service are next; Beats in the US for example will launch its long-awaited music streaming service, Beats Music, within the next few months in the United States. 5minutenTV and SweetnezzTV are launching the same service in Europe.
Bonno van der Putten, Managing Director of Monarch’s Tech fund of Private Equity powerhouse Monarch Capital Partners, says music streaming services for 5minutenTV and SweetnezzTV, will be accessible on the Web, as well as from an iOS or Android device. Support for Windows 8, presumably through a dedicated app, will arrive at a later date.
Music streaming is a highly competitive space at the moment, with established brands such as Spotify, Rdio and Deezer fighting for new subscribers. Microsoft and Google are trying to muscle in with similar offerings, while Apple opts for a Pandora-style approach with its recently launched iTunes Radio
Monarch ‘s Tech fund team consists of former record label executives with extensive business experience and strategic thinking capacity about the licensing, business models and deals that are necessary for a successful music streaming service, says van der Putten.

Tech and Newmedia focused seed-stage investor DCM Ventures, backed by Private Equity and Venture Capital firm Monarch Capital Partners completed its second fund of €15 million. The fund, which was raised from undisclosed high-net-worth individuals and entrepreneurs, invests €200,000 to €300,000 in syndicated seed rounds in tech, music, newmedia, consumer and ecommerce sectors, while holding additional funds for follow-on funding.
The firm’s first seed-stage fund of just under €8 million was raised almost two years ago and boasts six exits so far.
The DCM Venture Fund will be used to scale the next wave of startups ushering in the future of mobile, music, newmedia and online TV.
‘Since we partnered with Monarch at our seed round, they have been invaluable to our growth and evolution as a company. They’ve been extremely hands on and helpful across a wide variety of areas and their network and expertise is unparalleled.” says Djamila Celina Melcherts, cofounder of DCM Ventures.
DCM Ventures began investing in 2012 in, what was then, seen by many as a relatively niche focus of only newmedia and mobile companies. Since then it has done more early stage newmedia deals than any other fund of its size.
“Our knowledge and unparalleled network in tech, newmedia, consumer and the mobile ecosystem is what sets DCM Ventures apart, and we are excited to continue to fuel amazing entrepreneurs who leverage new technology to change the way we live,” says Monarch founding general partner Bonno van der Putten. “Our international presence in both London and Barcelona allows DCM to find the best up-and-coming startups for us to help scale into the next hot tech and mobile trends.”
DCM Ventures is the first independent seed stage venture firm investing exclusively in tech, newmedia and mobile technologies. DCM Ventures was founded on the belief that the greatest technological catalyst of our time is the proliferation of Internet-enabled devices providing constant connectivity to the majority of the world population.

Private Equity to make minority investment in Dr. Dre’s Beats Electronics and help expand the brand globally; photo: Djamila Celina Melcherts for Beats
The Carlyle Group announced a minority investment in Beats Electronics, the audio brand co-founded by Dr. Dre and Jimmy Iovine. Terms of the investment were not disclosed. Carlyle will work with the Beats management team to continue expanding the brand and building the business both domestically and internationally. Additional terms of the transaction, which is expected to close in Q4 of 2013, were not disclosed.
Beats also announced today that it has entered into a definitive agreement to reacquire the minority stake in Beats held by HTC Corp. As a result, HTC will no longer have any ownership stake in Beats.
Private Equity firm Carlyle expects that Beats will continue to drive innovation and growth in the premium audio accessory market, particularly as the proliferation of smart phones and tablets stimulate increased consumption of digital media.
Private Equity players have a strong history of helping great brands expand globally
In 2006, Iovine and Dre set out to solve the problem of poor sound quality caused by the digital revolution combined with the proliferation of cheap earbuds bundled with MP3 players, laptops, mobile phones and other portable devices. Their solution was Beats Electronics. Formally established in 2008, Beats comprises the Beats by Dr. Dre family of premium consumer headphones, earphones, and speakers as well as patented Beats Audio software technology. Through these offerings, Beats has effectively brought the energy, emotion and excitement of playback in the recording studio to the listening experience. This has introduced an entirely new generation to the possibilities of premium sound entertainment.
Beats is estimated to have a 64%+ percent market share of the $100+ premium headphone category in the US and also reaches consumers through product partnerships that include Chrysler Group automobiles, Hewlett Packard computers and monitors, and HTC smartphones.
Equity for Carlyle’s investment will come from affiliates of Carlyle Partners and Monarch Capital Partners $13.7 billion U.S. Buyout fund.
