Financial Figures/Balance Sheet/3-month report
05.08.2015


Before the backdrop of a globally uneven economic environment with moderate
growth in Europe, prolonged strong demand in North America, Asia with regionally
differing business developments and Brazil continuing the downward trend,
voestalpine was able to significantly improve profits in all categories in the
first quarter of the business year 2015/16.
These results were driven by positive developments of all single Divisions,
where the Steel Division was showing the largest relative gain in earnings.
The Special Steel Division could increase its profits as well, whereas the Metal
Forming and the Metal Engineering Division were able to only slightly improve
the results compared to the already very attractive levels a year earlier.
Against this backdrop, also after the completion of the first quarter,  for the
full business year 2015/16 a further improvement of the operating result
(EBITDA) as well as profit from operations (EBIT) - each excluding special items
and effects from changes in consolidation - can be anticipated.
The reported figures according to IFRS of the first quarter of the business year
2015/16 of voestalpine Group, independently from the improved operational
performance, are significantly influenced by special items from changes of
consolidation of two companies. The positive effects in the single earnings
categories based on reassessment of the prior shares at fair value deducted by
depreciation of disclosed hidden reserves for the reported quarter are: EBITDA:
EUR +137.6 million; EBIT und Earnings before Tax: EUR +131.5 million; Profit for
the period: EUR +137.7 million.
