Luxottica Group shares have traded on the New York Stock Exchange (NYSE) in the form of American depositary receipts (ADRs) since listing on January 24, 1990

An ADR is a receipt representing ordinary or common shares of a non-U.S. company. ADRs are priced in U.S. dollars and traded on U.S. exchanges, allowing investors to buy and sell shares of non-U.S. companies in exactly the same way as they purchase or sell shares of U.S. companies.

Luxottica Group ADRs, trading under the ticker symbol "LUX," are dollar-denominated securities backed by the shares trading in Italy. The ratio between the ADR and the underlying ordinary shares is 1:1, meaning that one Luxottica Group ADRs is the equivalent of one Luxottica Group ordinary share.
