6-month report

18.11.2010

The first half of the business year 2010/11 brought along nearly a tenfold increase of voestalpine AG´s operational result compared to the same period in the previous year. With full utilization rates in almost all segments - against the downward trend in the European steel industry since summer 2010 - voestalpine group is back to an altogether normalised business environment after the crises in the years of 2008 and 2009. The development of the 2nd half 2010/11 is expected to be stable with widely full capacity utilization.
