Costa Merger to Broaden Product Offerings

Costa Inc. and Essilor International recently completed its previously announced
merger agreement, bringing together two technology-minded partners committed to
building and defining the next generation of sun lens technology.

The merger also enables Costa to leverage Essilor’s expertise in surface
coatings to develop innovative products in response to specific needs, such as
anti-fog or hydrophobic lenses. In the prescription sunglasses segment, Essilor
and Costa will work together to broaden product offerings.
