These financial statements were audited by the Statutory Auditors whose audit report is in the process of being issued.

Francesco Milleri, Chairman and CEO, and Paul du Saillant, Deputy CEO at EssilorLuxottica commented: “We’re proud to share these strong results with our stakeholders, delivering another year above 7% revenue growth1, including an acceleration in Q4, with every one of our regions doing its part. Our profitability remained strong, with a record adjusted 2 Group net profit close to 3 billion euros and free cash flow 5 at 2.4 billion. It was also a year of major investments: growing new product categories, with Stellest in myopia and Ray-Ban Meta in wearables, adding beloved brands like Moncler and Jimmy Choo to our portfolio, leveraging artificial and business intelligence, expanding our operations footprint and reinforcing the retail presence globally. This will support the evolution of the Company and the transformation of the industry over the next decade.

Moreover, Nuance Audio’s debut at CES created a resounding buzz around EssilorLuxottica and our disruptive proposition in the audio space that bridges two industries combining good vision and better hearing.

We also progressed on our sustainability roadmap, Eyes on the Planet, reaching carbon neutrality in Europe and continuing our journey to connect our communities around the world with a common culture and shared values, growing our employee shareholders globally to almost 80,000.

With all these positive results and momentum, we are confident that we will keep the pace and meet our long-term targets. After three years of strong results, the Board of Directors has unanimously agreed on the distribution of a dividend of Euro 3.95 per share.”
