De Beers invites bids

The De Beers group of companies this week confirmed that it will accept registrations of interest for its 2015 to 2018 global sightholder sales contractual period from August 25 to 29, 2014.

Any diamond businesses interested in applying for supply from the start of the new contractual period will need a key individual from their group to register. In a statement, De Beers said that applicant businesses that are not currently sightholders will also need to submit an auditor workbook for approval by De Beers as part of the submissions process that will follow the registrations of interest.

Paul Rowley, the executive vice president of De Beers global sightholder sales, said, “We believe that we have a compelling rough diamond supply proposition at De Beers and we very much look forward to receiving applications for our new global sightholder sales contractual period.
