Harry Winston Diamond Corp. says it has received all the regulatory approvals required for the sale of its jewellery and timepiece division to the Swatch Group AG.
Under a friendly deal announced in January, Swatch will pay $750-million and assume $250-million in debt to acquire the Harry Winston retail business.
The Toronto-based mining company – known as Aber Diamond until it acquired the Harry Winston business – expects the deal to close March 26.
After that, its name will become Dominion Diamond Corp. and its focus will be on diamond mining in the Northwest Territories.
