Carlyle: Right Back Where They Started From?


I hear that one of the bidders in the Finlay auction, scheduled for Wednesday, is none other than the Cohen family, which formerly owned Carlyle (before Finlay bought it in 2005)  They are in a consortium with Hilco and SimplexDiam. Obviously, they feel there is still considerable value in the Carlyle name and brands.


Interestingly, in an article from last week, Scot Congress, formerly of Congress Jewelers (which Finlay also owns), hinted he may also bid at the Finlay auction.
