On a pre-IFRS 16 basis, in the third quarter of 2019 the Ebitda equaled 9.7 million euros, with a margin on sales of 4.6%. This performance compared to 13.7 million euros recorded in the same quarter of 2018, a result which however included the income of Euro 9.8 million for the early termination of the Gucci license.

“In the third quarter of the year, we continued the improvement of our results, working with determination on those priorities aimed at enhancing our Group’s assets, in particular strengthening our commercial capabilities and enhancing our digital agenda, two areas in which our strategy is focused on the customer and on a continuous and ever closer connection with the final consumer,” stated Safilo’s chief executive officer, Angelo Trocchia.
