De Beers ropes in five new sightholders due to ‘strong’ demand

03 april 2014

De Beers has updated its sightholder directory to include five new sightholder businesses that will receive supply through an intention to offer (ITO) for the remainder of the 2012–2015 supplier of choice contract period.
It said the inclusion of the five demonstrated a “strong” demand at its auctions.
The new sightholders were D. Navinchandra Gems BVBA, Diambel NV, M/S. Vallabhbhai Dhanjibhai & Co, Yaelstar BVBA and Star Rays.
 “We are delighted that five of De Beers’ auction customers have qualified for Sightholder contracts as a result of the demand they demonstrated for products sold at our auctions,” said group executive vice president, auction sales Neil Ventura.
“The combination of spot sales and recently launched forward contract sales provides our customers with both industry-leading short and medium-term purchase flexibility and a real opportunity to achieve Sightholder status.”
Each applicant for a supplier of choice contract under the 2014 ITO re-planning process had been subject to the same rigorous and objective selection process as those applicants that applied for supply at the start of the 2012–2015 contract period in 2011, said De Beers.
