EssilorLuxottica initiates legal proceedings to obtain information from GrandVision

Charenton-le-Pont, France (July 18, 2020 – 10:30am) – EssilorLuxottica announces that earlier today it initiated legal proceedings before a District Court in Rotterdam, the Netherlands, to obtain information from GrandVision. This is to assess the way GrandVision has managed the course of its business during the COVID-19 crisis, as well as the extent to which GrandVision has breached its obligations under the support agreement. Despite repeated requests, GrandVision has not provided this information on a voluntary basis, leaving EssilorLuxottica with no other option but to resort to legal proceedings.
