quarterly report

Graz, May 4, 2016. International technology Group ANDRITZ saw a solid
development of profitability in the first quarter of 2016 despite slight
declines in sales and order intake.
 
The key financial figures developed as follows:

* Sales amounted to 1,285.6 million euros (MEUR) and were thus lower than the
  reference figure for the previous year (-8.5% versus Q1 2015: 1,404.3 MEUR).
  All business areas recorded a decline in sales.

* Order intake, at 1,247.4 MEUR, reached a satisfactory level, however, it was
  12.8% below the reference figure of the previous year (Q1 2015: 1,430.6 MEUR).
  While the PULP & PAPER business area in particular and also SEPARATION were
  able to increase order intake compared to Q1 2015, HYDRO and METALS saw a
  significant decline in order intake.

* Order backlog as of March 31, 2016 amounted to 7,147.6 MEUR, thus decreasing
  slightly compared to the end of last year (December 31, 2015: 7,324.2 MEUR).

* Despite the decline in sales, EBITA increased to 83.9 MEUR (Q1 2015:
  73.4 MEUR). This is due to the very positive development in the PULP & PAPER
  and HYDRO business areas.  Thus, profitability of the Group (EBITA margin)
  increased to 6.5% (Q1 2015: 5.2%).

* Net income without non-controlling interests increased to 52.5 MEUR (Q1 2015:
  44.0 MEUR).
 
The situation on the markets served by ANDRITZ basically has not changed
compared to 2015. While unchanged good project and investment activity prevails
in the PULP & PAPER business area, several projects in HYDRO and METALS have
been stopped temporarily or delayed due to uncertain demand. Based on the
business results achieved in the first quarter of 2016, ANDRITZ expects Group
sales for 2016 to decrease slightly compared to 2015. At the same time, however,
profitability is expected to remain at a solid level.
