Here is an article in the Telegraph about the Ikea owner. Ikea has over 330 furniture stores in 38 countries and sales over over $35 bilion. I would guess Warren would love to get the call from Ikea some fine day. "The company will never go to the market," Ingvar Kamprad told the latest edition of Swiss business magazine Bilanz. "We want to keep strict self-financing." Named by Swiss media in June as Europe's richest man with an estimated fortune of $37.5bn (£23.2bn) including holdings in the family-owned foundation, Lake Geneva resident Kamprad also rubbished recent reports that he intended to step down. "Oh, I have so much work to do and no time to die," he said,In the interview, Kamprad also spoke about alleged disputes with his sons, all of whom have key roles in the business that employs 131,000 people in 41 countries, according to Bilanz. "We do not always agree. But that's normal in a family," said Mr Kamprad. http://www.telegraph.co.uk/finance/newsbysector/retailandcon...
