World's largest maker and distributor of premium eyewear, De Rigo S.p.A. posted net sales of EUR 387.6 m(1) for the first nine months of 2005, a decrease of 2.1 percent as compared with the same period last year.

The Group's sales results reflected the continuing positive trend at General Optica, the Group's Spanish retail chain, and a recovery at the wholesale & manufacturing business segment, while sales results at Dollond & Aitchison, the Group's British retail chain, were negatively affected by a general downturn in the British optical market, notwithstanding an improvement in the chain's product mix.
