ROSENBAUER GROUP - 1st QUARTER 2004 (E)

--------------------------------------------------------------------- Disclosure announcement transmitted by euro adhoc. The issuer is responsible for the content of this announcement. --------------------------------------------------------------------- Owing to shipments made in fulfilment of major orders during the first few months of both 2002 and 2003, the Rosenbauer Group achieved atypically positive first-quarter results in each of these years. The first quarter of 2004 has seen a return to the pattern that is more usual in the fire-equipment sector, with the majority of vehicle shipments scheduled to be made during the second half of the year. ~ Key figures 1-3/2004 1-3/2003 Revenue in EUR m 66.0 74.3 EBIT in EUR m 1.3 5.1 EBT in EUR m 0.6 4.2 Profit after tax in EUR m (0.1) 2.5 Net profit for the period in EUR m (0.8) 1.4 Cash-flow from pre-tax profit in EUR m 1.6 6.2 Capital investments in EUR m 1.1 1.3 Order backlog (31.03.) in EUR m 195.3 228.0 Order intake in EUR m 66.8 72.2 Employees 1,327 1,269 Market capitalisation (31.03.) in EUR m 82.5 46.8 ~ Revenue and results trends The Group posted decreased EBT of EUR 0.6 m (1-3/2003: EUR 4.2 m), on Group revenues of EUR 66.0 m (1-3/2003: EUR 74.3 m). Last year's exceptionally high revenues and good first-quarter result are attributable to seasonally untypical shipments from Austria and Spain in connection with major orders. This year, the majority of shipments will once again be made - as is usual in our industry - in the second half of the year. Due to the continuing pressure on volumes and prices, the German companies were once more unable to achieve a satisfactory result in the period under review. Outlook On the strength of the orders currently on hand, and of the expected international economic and exchange-rate trends, Management's forecast for the current financial year continues to be for Group revenues of around EUR 310 m, and EBT of between EUR 10.5 m and EUR 12.5 m. end of announcement euro adhoc 27.05.2004 --------------------------------------------------------------------- Further inquiry note: Marlene Schneider Branche: Machine Manufacturing ISIN: AT0000922554 WKN: 092255 Index: ATX Prime, WBI Börsen: Wiener Börse AG / official dealing Berliner Wertpapierbörse / free trade Baden-Württembergische Wertpapierbörse / free trade
