13.03.2012

Today, Tuesday, the Management Board of voestalpine AG agreed to set aside EUR
205 million in reserves to cover any risks relating to the antitrust proceedings
relative to rails deliveries in Germany, as well as the planned closure of TSTG
Schienentechnik GmbH & Co KG ("TSTG"), part of the voestalpine Group. The
reserve will be reflected in the annual financial report as of March 31, 2012.
From today´s perspective, this reserve will cover all costs related to the
closure of rail production in Duisburg, as well as all risks associated with the
antitrust proceedings.
TSTG is being closed as a consequence of the site´s lack of economic viability
which makes it impossible to sustain competitive production of rails. Closure is
subject to the participation and co-determination rights of the employee
representatives and will be effected by the end of 2012 at the earliest.
