Revenue up 2.9% to EUR1,520.2 million

Essilor's consolidated revenue for the six months ended June 30, 2008 rose by 5.4% like-for-like and 9.6% excluding the currency effect. Changes in the scope of consolidation boosted revenue by 4.2%, reflecting the contributions of the businesses acquired in 2007 and in the first half of 2008. The currency effect was a negative 6.6%, which reduced reported growth to 2.9%.

Organic growth in revenue was led by:

- Very strong demand in North America, South America and most

countries in Asia.

- The successful launch of the sixth-generation of

Transitions(R) variable-tint lenses as well as the Crizal Avance(TM)

anti-reflective lenses with Scotchgard(TM) Protector.

- A sharp increase in sales of medium and high-index lenses,

especially in 1.6 high-index material.
