Milan, November 27, 2012 - Luxottica Group S.p.A. (MTA: LUX; NYSE: LUX), a leader in the design, manufacture and distribution of fashion, luxury and sports eyewear, Salmoiraghi & Viganò S.p.A. and Salmoiraghi & Viganò Holding S.R.L, the sole shareholder of Salmoiraghi & Viganò, announced an agreement today whereby Luxottica will subscribe for newly issued shares of Salmoiraghi & Viganò resulting in a 36% equity stake in the Italian optical retailer.

The transaction, which is valued at Euro 45 million is aimed at providing Salmoiraghi & Viganò with the resources required to re-establish its financial resources and to support its future


"In the last few years, the Italian eyewear sector has undergone many important changes", commented Andrea Guerra, Chief Executive Officer of Luxottica.

Luxottica will become a financial partner while operations will remain with Salmoiraghi & Viganò. This transaction demonstrates our commitment to finding solutions for our business partners, providing concrete support to the market and looking optimistically to the future of our country".

"This partnership," added Dino Tabacchi, Chairman and major shareholder of Salmoiraghi & Viganò, "represents a great opportunity for our company, with its history dating back over 150 years and a network of approximately 500 sales outlets in Italy, to strengthen our brand in the Italian market. We are extremely delighted to enter into an arrangement with Luxottica, which will allow us to carry on with our company's development plans".
