Changes in Control of Registrant.

On April 4, 2011, Emerging Vision, Inc. (the “Company”) was informed by its majority shareholders that they had contributed their 91.16% of the Company’s capital stock to EMVI Acquisition Corp. (“EMVI Acquisition”) and intended to complete a short form merger with the Company pursuant to Section 905 of the New York Business Corporation Law.  EMVI Acquisition filed a Schedule 13D with the Securities and Exchange Commission on April 4, 2011 which disclosed the following information:

On April 1, 2011, EMVI Holdings, LLC entered into a transaction with EMVI Acquisition Corp., Alan Cohen, Stefanie Rubin, Allyson Shapiro, Jeffrey Cohen, Robert Cohen, G. Cohen Trust U/A dtd 3/6/2000, E. Cohen Trust U/A dtd 3/6/2000, N. Cohen Trust U/A dtd 3/6/2000, J. Cohen Trust U/A dtd 3/6/2000, Benito R. Fernandez, Horizons Investors Corp., Warminster Investments Corporation, Harvey Ross, Ashley Ross, Ross EVI, LLC, Ross Branchburg Trust f/b/o Ashley Ross, Ross Branchburg Trust f/b/o Nicholas Ross, and other shareholders, pursuant to which the Shares of the Company, along with the rights to receive 7,202,220 shares of Common Stock to be issued following the recent exercise of options held by Christopher Payan, owned by each such entity were contributed to EMVI Acquisition Corp. in exchange for an equal number of membership interests in EMVI Holdings, LLC.  These transactions resulted in EMVI Acquisition Corp. acquiring 91.16% of the total issued and outstanding Shares of the Company.  There was no cash consideration for the transaction.  Additional purchases of Shares by EMVI Acquisition Corp. will be funded by EMVI Holdings, LLC.

Once the merger is complete, the Company will become a wholly owned subsidiary of EMVI Holdings, LLC, currently the sole shareholder of EMVI Acquisition, will cease to be a publicly reporting company, and its common stock will no longer be quoted on the OTC Bulletin Board.  The Company understands that its public shareholders shall receive $0.l6 per share upon proper submission of their certificates per instructions that will be delivered to those shareholders.
