Following a comprehensive review, the Board enthusiastically supports Mr. Drahi’s offer, which delivers a significant premium to market for our shareholders. After more than 30 years as a public company, the time is right for Sotheby’s to return to private ownership to continue on a path of growth and success.
I am making this investment for my family, through my personal holding, with a very long-term perspective. There is no capital link with Altice Europe or Altice USA. As the future owner, I have full confidence in Sotheby’s management, and hence do not anticipate any change to the Company's strategy. Management and their exceptional teams and talent around the world will continue to operate with my full support.
