Date:6/15/2008

CHARENTON-LE-PONT, France, June 16 /PRNewswire-FirstCall/ -- Essilor and the Swiss company Schweiter Technologies AG announced today that they have signed a share purchase agreement whereby Essilor will offer to acquire the shares of Schweiter subsidiary Satisloh Holding AG. The agreement is subject to certain conditions precedent, including approval by competition authorities in Satisloh's main host countries. The acquisition could be completed in the second half of the year.

Created by the merger of Satis and Loh in 2004, Satisloh has a global distribution network and is the world's leading supplier of prescription laboratory equipment. It manufactures and markets antireflective coating units and surfacing machines, as well as consumables. The company reported revenues of EUR161 million in 2007 and has more than 400 employees. Led by the same management team and based in its current locations, Satisloh will continue to develop innovative solutions for all its customers.

In the future, the combination of Essilor and Satisloh's research capabilities and expertise will make it possible to offer all industry participants a broader, more competitive range of products and services, while shortening time to market cycles for new production processes. For Essilor, the acquisition not only opens up a new area of business, it also offers a strong fit with the Company's strategy of innovation and the development of services for prescription laboratories, optical chains and eye care professionals around the world.
