DBR-Summergate Split over Equity Stake

16 - dec - 10

No matter how amicable the split was projected to be, the seven-year long relationship between Domaines Barons de Rothschild (Lafite) and Summergate ended because DBR wanted a stake in the Chinese importer's equity while Summergate was not prepared to sell any.

According to a report, Summergate's managing partner Ian Ford said that the firm was not ready to sell any equity. "It was an unfortunate divergence of strategy", he said. DBR was keen to have a stake and control over their distribution in China while Summergate's 'vision of the future' was to remain independent.

"Clearly we took the decision not to sell any stake to DBR with full knowledge we were going to part ways. It was a long-considered decision," said Ford. They could not remain DBR's distributors having refused it a share in the company, he said.

Ford said they had had "a very successful partnership", and that DBR was "a fantastic brand", but he insisted "there is a lot of space for a lot of big brands in China."

Ford said Burgundy and Italy, especially Tuscany, were the two regions apart from Bordeaux that were set to take off in China.

"They are very interesting categories. The Chinese like Bordeaux because it has history, prestige, rarety and high prices. Italy and Burgundy fit that profile exactly," explained Ford.

You are gonna need headshots and a pfortolio together. Get a photographer that can get different looks from you.after you done this, you can find talent agencies to book you [url=]tmaeicopkwu[/url] [link=]kktqpuswnm[/link]
You do not need a portfolio to start modnileg. If any agency signs you, they will put together a portfolio for you, starting with test shoots until you get actual tears. And they will not charge you for this.All you have to submit to an agency are two pictures a headshot and full body shot. Almost every big agency accepts pictures for free in fact the legitimate agencies do not charge anything up front.Agencies to look into are Ford, Elite, IMG, Wilhelmina, Click, DNA, Marilyn, Next, Women, etc. Look on sites like that list the Top 10 agencies in terms of bookings. Or look on and search for your fave models. It lists the agencies they are signed with on their page. [url=]joasrhqfrdj[/url] [link=]zanfhe[/link]

Powinna być kara bezwzględnego wiizneeia dla osf3b, ktf3re naprawiają jak i dla osf3b, dla ktf3rych zlecają taką naprawę. Jest on naprawiony beznadziejnie i prymitywnie. Stanowi on realne zagrożenie dla życia lub zdrowia jego konstrukcja była dość zacznie naruszona. Samochf3d ten powinien być zezłomowany w żadnym wypadku nie może być coś takiego naprawiane.
A jak twoim zdaniem wyagdla profesjonalna naprawa skoro to jest prymityw?? W Polsce nie takie rzeczy sie naprawia, nawet najbardziej zmasakrowane auto teoretycznie mozna doprowadzic do stanu sprzed wypadku. Pisze teoretycznie bo czesto technologia jakiej trzeba uzyc jest nieoplacalna. Najgorsze jest to ze ten samochod pewnie sprzedano jako bazwypadkowy Nie krytykuj blacharzy, oni tylko wykonuja swoja prace i w tym przypadku zrobili to naprawde niezle:)
Hi D.B.,I LOVE LOVE LOVE your books and I am anxiously wtiaing for the Lucas!!!I read your post and had to laugh because I LOVE Adam Levine!! He is my pretend boyfriend. LOL.
