As a result of the completion of the transaction contemplated by the block trade agreement, EssilorLuxottica acquired “predominant control” (overwegende zeggenschap) over GrandVision and is under an obligation to launch a mandatory public offer for all outstanding shares in GrandVision, in accordance with the applicable Dutch public offer rules.

The offer memorandum will concern the mandatory public offer on all issued and outstanding ordinary shares in the share capital of GrandVision, each with a nominal value of Euro 0.02. The offer price per share shall be Euro 28.42, which is equal to the amount per share EssilorLuxottica paid under the block trade agreement. The offer price is also equal to the highest price paid by EssilorLuxottica for shares in the capital of GrandVision during the twelve months preceding the announcement of the mandatory public offer and is therefore a “fair price” (billijke prijs) as referred to in section 5:80a of the “Dutch Financial Supervision Act” (Wet op het financieel toezicht). Settlement of the mandatory public offer is expected to take place within six months. EssilorLuxottica also confirms that sufficient funds have been secured to fully finance the payment of all issued and outstanding shares in GrandVision against the offer price. On the date of this press release, EssilorLuxottica holds a 76.72% interest in GrandVision.
