“On behalf of the Board of Directors, we would like to sincerely thank our shareholders for their continued support and trust. We would also like to thank our talented employees for their outstanding contributions in moving us forward on our unique journey. Our vision for the future is to embark on a new phase of growth while increasing shareholder value. Our goal is to expand beyond the boundaries of ophthalmology and capitalize on the success of our recently launched AI-powered Ray-Ban Meta and the upcoming Nuance Audio. These breakthrough innovations, supported by our iconic brands and our close relationship with consumers, will help us lead the eye care industry into a new era of connectivity, intelligence and sustainability,” said Francesco Milleri, Chairman and CEO, and Paul du Saillant, Deputy CEO of EssilorLuxottica (Charenton-le-Pont, France), after the meeting at the end of April.


Distribution of the dividend

The dividend per share was set at 3.95 euros. The resolution allowing shareholders to receive their final dividend for the financial year ending December 31, 2023 in shares was also approved at the meeting. As confirmed by the Board of Directors, the price of newly issued shares for the payment of the dividend was set at EUR 180.12 per share.

An application will be made for the new shares to be admitted to trading on Euronext Paris. The new ordinary shares to be issued in payment carry the same rights as the existing shares and have a right to ongoing distribution, i.e. they entitle the holder to receive distributions from the date of their issue. Payment of the dividend or delivery of the new shares following exercise of the option will take place on 3 June 2024.
