A sight for sore eyes on Monday.
Italian and French merger EssilorLuxottica has declared its feud is over.
The company brought together Ray-Ban maker Luxottica and lenses specialist Essilor last October in a 61 billion dollar merger.
But they fought in plain sight and accused each other of trying to dominate the company's leadership-when they were supposed to have equal footing.
The French side was irked in November when Luxottica's founder and chairman of the merged entity, Leonardo Del Vecchio, appeared to tip his Chief Executive, Francesco Milleri, for the group's CEO role.
But as part of the agreement, neither Milleri nor Essilor's CEO will apply for the future CEO role of the combined company.
The move comes ahead of a sharholder meeting on Thursday.
Some investors had voiced concern that the leadership quarrel may delay or prevent promised savings.
But the eyeware group confirmed its 2019 targets last week and reported a rise in sales of 3.5 to 5 percent.
Investors, relieved by the truce: shares in the merger rose on Monday, making the company among the best performers on France's CAC-40 index.
