Essilor CEO sees sales growing over 7 percent in 2013
PARIS Feb 28 (Reuters) - Ophtalmic lens maker Essilor expects sales including the effect of acquisitions to grow more than 7 percent this year and contribution margins to remain stable at around 17.9 percent, its chief executive said on Thursday.
Speaking to reporters after the group reported a rise in 2012 profits and sales on growing demand from emerging markets, Hubert Saigneres said: "We would be disappointed that if our organic sales growth weren't around 5 percent [this year]."
