Acquisition of Minority Interest of OPSM
On November 26, 2004, the Company through our wholly-owned subsidiary, Luxottica South Pacific Pty, Ltd., made an offer for all the remaining outstanding shares of OPSM Group that it did not already own. The offer was for A$4.35 per share including a fully franked dividend of A$0.15 per share that was declared by OPSM (resulting in a net price of A$4.20 per share). On January 4, 2005, we launched an off-market takeover offer for all the Australian Stock Exchange listed OPSM group shares we did not already own. At the close of the offer on February 7, 2005, we held 98.5 percent of OPSM Group shares, which is in excess of the compulsory acquisition threshold. On February 8, 2005, we announced the start of the compulsory acquisition process for all remaining shares in OPSM Group not already owned by us. On February 15, 2005, the Australian Stock Exchange suspended trading in OPSM Group shares and on February 18, 2005, it delisted OPSM Group shares from the Australian Stock Exchange. The compulsory acquisition process was completed on March 24, 2005.
