The Statutory Auditors have performed a limited review of these financial statements. Their report is in the process of being issued.

Our performance, particularly in a challenging environment, reflects the strength of our open network model, our willingness to push the boundaries of innovation and the skills and energy of our people. This benefits all our stakeholders, starting with our customers.

At the same time, we paved the way for our long-term growth boosted by key projects and partnerships as well as the GrandVision integration, which is already bringing benefits.

We launched the OneSight EssilorLuxottica Foundation to maximize our impact, an important step in achieving our goal to eradicate poor vision in the world in a generation.

As we look ahead, we will continue to carry out the vision of our Chairman Leonardo Del Vecchio, whose leadership and values remain an inspiration to all of us.”
