a NY based office. Jean Madar is stand up guy. I don't think anyone knows who owns what so I think IPAR should be safe from any french backlash. I think the USA is waiting to long with Iraq. They should have pulled a Panama. In and out!
If anything I think IPAR/Jean have more to fear from the indians and I am not talking about cowboy and indians.
Jean Philippe - Put a knife in his hand and it's French. Elite - Stuffshirt arrorgance ... it's French. Jordache - Sounds like a French horse's ass ... next. Intimate - OK. Will pass for something other than a Cheese eating French surrender monkey. Aziza - Hmmm, sounds Arabic. Probably OK. But won't sell well in the Washington metro area.
So, shareholders better hope that Intimate, Paul Smith, and Aziza can carry the day. The rest of the French Crap IPAR sells will wind up rotting on store shelves.
As soon as Jean opens his mouth everyone knows this company is French. Sales will suffer. Product will get pulled from US retail shelves. The French are digging a huge hole for themselves in the US marketplace.
This stock is toast. Jean should stay in the background and keep his French mouth shut.
Give me a break. Most of the components made in the fragrance industry are made by China. Fact! So why don't you stop buying all fragrance products! Get real! The United States will go in and spank Sadam and we will pay our selves back with Iraqi oil. Relax! Jean is a stand up guy and if you new anything why the french oppose this war you would not jump on Jean. IMO
