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

growth.

"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".

Salmoiraghi & Viganò is a leading Italian company in the eyewear retail sector and owns approximately 500 stores across Italy. For the fiscal year ended September 30, 2012, the Company posted annual net sales of approximately Euro 170 million.

Under the agreement, Luxottica and Salmoiraghi & Viganò Holding, commencing in 2017, will have the right to exercise a call option to acquire the shares both companies do not own. The transaction is subject to satisfaction of customary conditions, including obtaining regulatory approval in Italy.
