Essilor : First Half 2009 Revenue
Date:7/16/2009

    - Strong Growth in First-Half Revenue, up 9.4%

    - Operating Margin Holds Firm

Essilor International, the world leader in ophthalmic optics, today announced consolidated revenue of an estimated EUR1,663.4 million for the six months ended June 30, 2009, representing a reported 9.4% increase on first-half 2008. Like-for-like, revenue was down a slight 0.7% for the period, but was up 5.3% excluding the currency effect alone.

In a generally sluggish ophthalmic optics market, Essilor primarily relied on new product launches to sustain its lens sales. Market share increased worldwide, led by the Company's extensive product portfolio, strong distribution networks and targeted acquisitions dynamic.

In light of these factors, Essilor is confident in its ability to maintain first-half 2009 operating margin on a par with full-year 2008.
