Dutch eyeglass store firm GrandVision seeks ruling in EssilorLuxottica case

AMSTERDAM (Reuters) - GrandVisionGVNV.AS, the Dutch operator of a chain of eyeglass stores, said on Thursday it had started an arbitration case against its would-be buyer EssilorLuxottica to ensure the French-Italian eyeglass firm "complies with its obligations."

The move follows a EssilorLuxottica suit filed at the Rotterdam District Court last week seeking to force GrandVision to disclose information about its management performance during the coronavirus crisis.

EssilorLuxottica announced a 7.2 billion euro (6.53 billion pounds) bid for GrandVision in July 2019.
