Mainland China and Hong Kong. In 2006, we acquired three optical retailers operating in the premium optical markets in mainland China, with a total of 274 retail locations in Asia. In addition, they will expand our presence in Hong Kong, which we believe to be one of the most important markets for luxury goods.

Hong Kong is one of the most significant Chinese luxury markets where middle class and affluent mainland Chinese visit frequently to purchase luxury goods. Launching LensCrafters as a premium brand in Hong Kong increases awareness and consumer demand for our products and services. This strategy supports our next stage of expansion into mainland China, rebranding the stores we acquired to LensCrafters and developing worldwide recognition for our premium retail brand.

In September of 2006, we launched LensCrafters in Beijing, beginning the re-branding strategy of our acquisitions.
