MILAN — Italian eyewear giant Luxottica SpA on Tuesday celebrated the end of its 50th birthday year by reporting record sales in 2011, and said it sees “a wealth of opportunities…which will yield even further growth” in 2012.
Driven by continued growth in both its wholesale and retail channels — and by strong performances in the U.S. and in emerging markets like China, India, the Middle East, Brazil and Eastern Europe — the company said full-year revenues reached 6.22 billion euros, or $8.65 billion, up 9.9 percent at constant exchange rates in 2010.
