Salzburg, January 25, 2007

PALFINGER,  the  world  market  leader  in  truck-mounted knuckle-boom  cranes, achieved further revenue and earnings records in the  2006  business  year.  The revenue growth is attributable to strong  organic  growth  in  the  core  CRANES segment in Europe, as well as to the favourable market environment and the  high level of capacity utilization achieved in all production areas.

The profitable European  Cranes  business  was  characterized  in 2006  by  the continuing trend towards high-performance  product classes  and  fittings,  the excellent market position in Western Europe, and above-average rates  of  growth in Eastern Europe.

Revenue compared with the same period of the previous year grew  by EUR  65.1m, or 12.5 percent, to EUR 585.2m. EBIT compared with the prior-year  period  rose EUR 11.9m, or 18.2 percent, to EUR 77.0m, equivalent to an EBIT margin  of  13.2 percent.

The  same  general  macro-economic  conditions  that  prevailed  in 2006    are anticipated to continue in 2007. During 2007, we shall focus  on  securing  our technological and innovative leadership on a sustainable basis, and on  lowering supply times through capacity expansion.

The above-mentioned figures are indications from a projected calculation  based on IFRS. We shall publish the final results on February 28, 2007.
