EssilorLuxottica Group: growth at constant exchange rates


Last year, the EssilorLuxottica Group recorded an adjusted net profit of €1.871 billion, and revenues up to €16.1 billion with a 3.2% growth at constant exchange rates (-1.2% at variable rates). This is what emerges from the eyewear leader’s first integrated data after the company’s BoD meeting in Paris, where they anticipated a 3.5% to 5% growth in revenues for 2019, and proposed a dividend distribution of €2.04 per share.

According to this year’s estimates against sales growth, their operating profit will increase by a multiplier of 0.8 to 1.2, and net profit is expected to increase by a 1% to 1.5%.

“EssilorLuxottica has a chance to create relevant value through revenue and cost synergies – under the current structure, these are expected to have an annual net impact on operating profit ranging from €420 to €600 million by the next five years”, the Group explained. “We also expect revenue synergies for €200 to €300 million, as a result of our ability to develop premium groundbreaking products by optimizing the frame/lenses combination, and to deliver enhanced services to the industry via a broader distribution and a more efficient logistics platform.”

Once our integration with Essilor is complete and the expected synergies achieved, we will redesign together a revolutionary service model to the benefit of our wholesale partners and consumers worldwide

said Leonardo del Vecchio, executive chairman of EssilorLuxottica.
