Schiphol, the Netherlands – 26 February 2021. GrandVision NV (EURONEXT: GVNV) publishes Full Year and Fourth Quarter 2020 results. 

Full Year 2020 Highlights

  • Revenue decreased by 12.2% at constant exchange rates to €3,481 million (FY19: €4,039 million) with a comparable revenue decline of 14.1%

  • The store base decreased to 7,260 stores from 7,406 at the end of 2019
  • Contingent upon the Company’s financial position not being materially worsened due to the impact of the second wave of COVID-19 in the first quarter of 2021, GrandVision confirms its intention to propose a dividend for the fiscal year 2019 at the Annual General Meeting on 23 April 2021.
