Review by the Supreme Court of India regarding RayBan Sun Optics India Ltd.
On August 29, 2003, the Securities Appellate Tribunal, or SAT, in India upheld the order of the Securities Exchange Board of India to require our subsidiary Ray Ban Indian Holdings Inc. to make a public offer in India to acquire up to an additional 20 percent of the outstanding shares of Ray Ban Sun Optics India Ltd. On October 30, 2003, we announced that we intended to comply with the SATs decision and that we, through our subsidiary, Ray Ban Indian Holdings Inc., would launch a public offer to purchase an additional 20 percent of the outstanding shares of Ray Ban Sun Optics India Ltd. In accordance with applicable Indian regulation, our subsidiary placed in escrow Rs 226 million (Euro 4.2 million) with the Manager of the public offer. On November 17, 2003, the Supreme Court of India stayed the SATs order and directed that the matter be further reviewed at the end of January 2004, provided that our subsidiary issue a letter of credit for Rs 630.6 million (Euro 11.9 million) in favor of the Indian securities regulatory agency within the following four-week period). Our subsidiary complied with such requirement, and the appeal is pending before the Supreme Court of India. If we are ultimately required to make the public offer, the aggregate cost of the offer could be approximately Euro 19 million, including stipulated interest increments.
