Essilor Steps Up its Development in Eastern Europe
Date:9/9/2008

CHARENTON-LE-PONT, France, September 10 /PRNewswire-FirstCall/ -- Essilor is pursuing its growth strategy in Eastern Europe's markets by acquiring a majority stake in Omega Optix. The company is a leading operator in the Czech Republic and Slovakia, where its prescription laboratories generate total revenue of more than EUR10 million.

In addition to ensuring the long-term viability of a recognized market player, the acquisition will enable Essilor to offer local customers an alternative lineup of products and services, thereby driving fast growth in a rapidly developing market.

The current Omega Optix management team will remain in place and continue to operate the company independently.
