Date:3/5/2009

p>
    The year's highlights included:

    - Solid 4.9% growth in sales of corrective lenses, led by the
      effectiveness of Essilor's networks and the success of new products,
      notably the new generation of Transitions(R) VI variable-tint lenses
      and the new Crizal(R) anti-reflective lenses.

    - Pursuit of the external growth strategy with the acquisition
      of a minority or majority stake in 27 companies, including Satisloh,
      the world leader in optical manufacturing solutions for prescription
      laboratories (see "27 Acquisitions in 2008" below).

    - Continued strong profitability with contribution from
      operations at 17.9% of revenue (18.2% excluding the Satisloh
      acquisition) and attributable net profit at 12.4%.

    - Continued financial solidity. Despite a major investment
      program, gearing remained at less than 5%.
