MILAN — Boosted by a “prolonged” sun season, surging sales in emerging markets and in the U.S., a positive performance both at retail and wholesale, and despite the depreciation of the dollar against the euro, Luxottica Group SpA posted 9.1 percent growth in net profits in the third quarter to 111.2 million euros, or $150.1 million, compared with the same period last year.
Adjusted net profit climbed 4.1 percent to 106.1 million euros, or $143.2 million. Adjusted figures do not include an extraordinary gain of about 21 million euros, or $28.3 million, related to the acquisition of the 40 percent stake in Multiopticas Internacional; nonrecurring costs related to Luxottica’s 50th anniversary celebrations of about 12 million euros, or $16.2 million, and nonrecurring restructuring and start-up costs in the retail division of approximately 11.8 million euros, or $16 million.
