Essilor : 2008 Revenue
Date:1/29/2009

    CHARENTON-LE-PONT, France, January 29 /PRNewswire-FirstCall/ --
    - A New Year of Growth in 2008
    - Revenue Up 9.7% Excluding the Currency Effect
    - Higher Earnings Expected

Essilor International, the world leader in ophthalmic optics, today announced consolidated revenue of EUR3,074.5 million for the year ended December 31, 2008, representing a reported 5.7% increase on the previous year. Excluding the currency effect, growth for the year was a strong 9.7%.

This performance confirms, once again, the soundness of the Company's growth model.

In the fourth quarter, consolidated revenue rose by a reported 12.6% year-on-year (2.2% like-for-like) to an estimated EUR796.7 million. The consolidation of Satisloh and the targeted acquisitions made during the year accounted for a particularly high 8.7% of reported growth. The currency effect was positive for the first time since the beginning of the year, at 1.7%.
