PDF version of the news release

Charenton-le-Pont, France (June 15, 2018) - At its meeting of June 7, 2018, the Board of Directors of Essilor decided to convene the first Shareholders' Meeting of EssilorLuxottica on July 25, 2018, in anticipation of the completion of the combination with Luxottica (i.e the date when all Luxottica S.p.A shares are contributed by Delfin S.à r.l. to Essilor), which is expected to occur within the coming weeks.

Essilor, which will be renamed EssilorLuxottica on the day the combination of the two companies becomes effective, plans to submit to the Shareholders' Meeting resolutions that will give it the means to implement its development projects as quickly as possible after the combination is completed.

The Meeting is being planned based on the assumption that the combination of Essilor and Luxottica will have taken effect by that date. All Essilor and Luxottica executives and staff are fully engaged to reach that goal. If, despite the joint efforts of the two companies, the combination is not completed in time to allow this Meeting to be held on July 25, another meeting will be quickly organized for a later date with the same agenda.

This Shareholders' Meeting, which would be the first to bring together EssilorLuxottica shareholders, would be co-chaired by Leonardo Del Vecchio, EssilorLuxottica Executive Chairman, and Hubert Sagnières, EssilorLuxottica Executive Vice-Chairman.

Draft resolutions are published in the preliminary notice of meeting in the Bulletin des Annonces Légales Obligatoires (BALO) on June 15, 2018.
