EssilorLuxottica announced that consolidated revenue including GrandVision (consolidated since July 1, i.e. for the third quarter only) totalled Euro 14,241 million in the first nine months of the year. On a comparable basis, consolidated
revenue amounted to Euro 5,465 million in the third quarter and Euro 15,918 million in the nine months,
+9.3% and +6.2% respectively at constant exchange rates versus the same periods of 2019.
Francesco Milleri and Paul du Saillant, CEO and Deputy CEO of EssilorLuxottica, said: “We are proud
of the revenue performance our Company delivered in the third quarter of the year, keeping the pace of
the fast recovery already posted in the second quarter. Including GrandVision, in its first quarter of
consolidation into the Group, EssilorLuxottica’s comparable revenue grew even faster, at 9.3% versus
pre-COVID levels at constant exchange rates. Moreover, while accelerating in revenue, our Company
has materially expanded its margins, proving to which extent it can operationally leverage the business
growth. This has led us to upgrade once again our outlook for the full year, now pointing to a more
material operating margin lift. Such a sound performance is driven by the Company’s omnichannel and
open business model, its new integrated commercial initiatives and its rich innovation pipeline, all at the
heart of its long-term strategy.
In the context of the World Sight Day, celebrated on October 14, we’re also pleased to highlight all the
initiatives the Company put in place in many different geographies to give vision a voice, while its ‘Eyes
on the Planet’ sustainability program continues to progress nicely, based on the five pillars of carbon,
circularity, world sight, inclusion and ethics”.
