Unless otherwise specified, the commentary in the following pages is based on revenue performance at constant exchange rates1 versus 2021 comparable2 revenue.


Constant exchange rates: figures at constant exchange rates have been calculated using the average exchange rates in effect for the corresponding period in the relevant comparative year.

Comparable (revenue)/(growth): comparable revenue includes, for 2021, the contribution of GrandVision’s revenue to EssilorLuxottica as if the combination between EssilorLuxottica and GrandVision (the “GV Acquisition” or "GV Combination"), as well as the disposals of businesses required by antitrust authorities in the context of the GV Acquisition, had occurred on January 1, 2021. Comparable revenue has been prepared for illustrative purpose only with the aim to provide meaningful comparable information.

3 Comparable-store sales: reflect, for comparison purposes, the change in sales from one period to another by taking into account in the more recent period only those stores already open during the comparable prior period. For each geographic area, the calculation applies the average exchange rate of the prior period to both periods.
