6-month report

Graz, August 5, 2016.  International technology Group ANDRITZ saw solid 
business development in the first half of 2016. The key financial figures 
developed as follows:

- Sales in the first half of 2016 amounted to 2,761.2 MEUR, decreasing by 8.1% 
  compared to the previous year's reference period (H1 2015: 3,005.6 MEUR). In 
  the second quarter of 2016, sales decreased by 7.8% compared to the previous 
  year's reference period, reaching 1,475.6 MEUR (Q2 2015: 1,601.3 MEUR).
 
- In the first half of 2016, order intake of 2,566.4 MEUR was practically at 
  the same level as during the previous year's reference figure (-0.5% versus 
  H1 2015: 2,580.0 MEUR). In the second quarter of 2016, order intake amounted 
  to 1,319.0 MEUR, thus increasing by 14.8% compared to the previous year's 
  reference period (Q2 2015: 1,149.4 MEUR) and also by 5.7% compared to the 
  previous quarter (Q1 2016: 1,247.4 MEUR). This increase is particularly due 
  to some large orders being booked in the metal forming sector for the 
  automotive and the automotive supplying industry (market segment of Schuler).

- The order backlog as of June 30, 2016, amounted to 7,076.3 MEUR (-3.4% 
  versus December 31, 2015: 7,324.2  MEUR).

- Despite the decline of sales, the EBITA, at 183.0 MEUR, in the first half of 
  2016 remained practically at the same level as during the previous year's 
  reference period (-1.0% versus H1 2015: 184.9 MEUR). As a result, 
  profitability (EBITA margin) increased to 6.6% (H1 2015: 6.2%). In the 
  second quarter of 2016, the EBITA amounted to 99.1 MEUR (-11.1% versus 
  Q2 2015: 111.5 MEUR).

- Net income (without non-controlling interests) increased to 120.2 MEUR 
  (H1 2015: 113.9 MEUR) in the first half of 2016. 

Wolfgang Leitner, President & CEO of ANDRITZ AG: "In view of the continuing, 
difficult overall macroeconomic environment, we are satisfied with the results 
achieved in the first half of the year. From today's perspective, we do not 
expect any significant changes in the markets we serve for the remaining 
months of this year." 

On the basis of the current financial results, ANDRITZ expects a decline in 
Group sales for the 2016 business year compared to 2015, but also expects 
solid development of profitability at the same time.
