PARIS, May 24 Online fashion retailer Yoox
YOOX.MI would consider buying a technology provider if an
opportunity arose but is not currently planning acquisitions,
its founder and chief executive said on Tuesday.
Revenue is continuing to grow at "more or less" the same
pace as the last 15 months, Federico Marchetti told the Reuters
Global Luxury and Fashion Summit in Paris, without giving a
specific forecast for the year.
Yoox, which powers websites for top brands such as Valentino
and Roberto Cavalli alongside its own multibrand sites, saw
sales rise 39 percent to 69.7 million euros ($98.04 million) in
the first quarter after growing 41 percent to 214.3 million in
Yoox, which expects China to be one of its top three markets
by 2015 and serves over 100 countries, does not plan to enter
India and Brazil in the near future, Marchetti said, as the
company has enough room for growth for now.
