PALFINGER continued its successful performance in the third quarter of 2006. Compared to the same previous-year period, revenue increased by 13.3 percent to EUR 437.2m in the first nine months, and EBIT rose from EUR 52.6m to EUR 59.3m, equivalent to an EBIT margin of 13.6 percent.

With consolidated net profit for the  period  of  EUR  41.8m  (Q1-Q3 2005:  EUR 37.6m), earnings per share reached EUR 4.74. The company's equity ratio rose  to 57.1 percent at balance sheet date.

The segment EUROPA and REST of the WORLD remains the strongest segment.  In  the segment NORTH and SOUTH AMERICA, revenue rose by 16.9 percent from EUR 47.8m  in the previous-year period to EUR 55.9m.

The CRANES segment is still marked by demand for higher performance classes  and high-grade fittings. Sales development of EPSILON  in Europe  was  also  highly positive. In the HYDRAULIC SYSTEMS and SERVICES segment, revenue increased  from EUR 109.5m by 17.1 percent to EUR 128.3m compared to the  previous-year  period. There was a slight increase in EBIT to EUR -3.7 m. (Q1-Q3 2005: EUR -3.8m).

Based on the positive developments of the first three quarters, we anticipate reaching our target of sustained, profitable growth for the 2006 financial year.
