Financial Figures/Balance Sheet/9-month report
11.02.2014


Although the macroeconomic lead-indicators moved back into growth territory in
the second half of 2013, sales and earnings of voestalpine group, although with
largely stable margins, still declined in the first three quarters 2013/14. The
third quarter 2013/14 however seems to mark the trough.
Whereas the processing divisions Metal Engineering and Metal Forming were able
to increase profits in an annual comparison, the Special Steel Division and in
particular the Steel Division were negatively impacted by the far reaching
weakness of large parts of the energy segment (pipeline and power plants).
Based on the recently placed pipeline projects and the recovery in most other
industrial segments in the beginning of 2014, the turnaround of the earnings
trend seems recognizable in the final quarter 2013/14.
Overall the results of voestalpine AG for 2013/14 (EBITDA, EBIT) from a present
day perspective will come in somewhat beneath last year's figures.
