    The highlights of the first half were:

    - The successful launch of new products in an overall
      ophthalmic optics market that experienced slower growth. Among the
      products were the Crizal Forte(R) anti-reflective lens, the Essilor
      Transitions(R) variable-tint lens in Europe, the Xperio(TM) polarized
      lens in the United States and the new Mr Blue(TM) edger.
    - Sustained growth momentum in emerging markets, notably India,
      South Korea, China, the ASEAN countries, Latin America, South Africa
      and Russia.
    - Strong operating profitability with a contribution margin (18.2%)
      that returned to its all-time high of first-half 2008 (including
      Satisloh) thanks to cost discipline across the organization.
    - Profit attributable to equity holders of Essilor that remained
      high at 12.2% of revenue and a further increase in earnings per share.
    - An ongoing external growth strategy, with the acquisition of 11
      companies around the world representing approximately EUR47 million in
      full-year revenue.
    - A sharp 12.5% incre
