Luxottica Group S.p.A. Key Developments

Luxottica Group Announces Intention To Voluntarily Delist From New York Stock Exchange

The Board of Directors of Luxottica Group S.p.A. decided to start the procedure to voluntarily delist its American Depositary Shares (ADSs), which are evidenced by American Depositary Receipts (ADRs), from the New York Stock Exchange. Luxottica intends to convert its current Level III ADR program into a Level I ADR program, which would give existing ADR holders the option to continue to hold ADRs. Level I ADRs are traded in the U.S. over-the-counter market. In connection with the delisting, Luxottica intends to apply to the U.S. Securities and Exchange Commission for the deregistration of its shares registered with the SEC and the termination of all its reporting obligations under the U.S. Securities Exchange Act of 1934. The Group's decision to delist from the NYSE is based on the following factors: (i) the trading of the Group's shares has shifted significantly to the Italian market. For the twelve months ended May 1, 2017, trading in the United States represented only 3.7% of Luxottica's worldwide average daily trading volume; (ii) maintaining a listing and registration in the United States entails significant administrative costs; and (iii) the delisting will also be efficient in light of the combination with Essilor. Luxottica expects to file a Form 25 with the SEC on or about June 6, 2017 to initiate the delisting. The delisting of the ADSs should become effective 10 days after such filing. However, the anticipated effective date of the delisting may be delayed if the SEC postpones the effectiveness of the application to delist or for other reasons. Following the effectiveness of the delisting from the NYSE, Luxottica intends to file with the SEC a Form 15F to deregister its shares with the SEC and terminate all its reporting obligations under the Exchange Act. Luxottica expects that its obligation to file reports with the SEC will be suspended immediately upon the filing of the Form 15F. Luxottica reserves the right to delay the filing of the Form 25 or Form 15F or withdraw either Form for any reason prior to its effectiveness.
