--------------------------------------------------------------------- Disclosure announcement transmitted by euro adhoc. The issuer is responsible for the content of this announcement. --------------------------------------------------------------------- The first half of 2004 saw 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. The atypically positive results posted in the first quarters of 2002 and 2003 were attributable to shipments made under major orders. ~ KEY FIGURES 1-6/2004 1-6/2003 Revenue in EUR m 140.0 154.5 EBIT in EUR m 4.7 11.4 EBT in EUR m 3.4 9.9 Profit after tax in EUR m 2.3 6.4 Net profit for the period in EUR m 0.7 4.0 Cash-flow from pre-tax profit in EUR m 6.0 13.2 Capital investments in EUR m 2.4 3.4 Order books as of 30.06. in EUR m 199.5 223.4 Order intake in EUR m 158.0 134.9 Employees 1,345 1,279 Market capitalisation as of 30.06. in EUR m 80.8 56.9 ~ In Europe, the first half of 2004 still brought no sign of any improvement in the unfavourable market situation. The crucial factor upon which future developments in Europe mainly depend will be the timing and strength of any economic recovery in Germany. For the first half of the year, the Group posted EBT of EUR 3.4 m (1-6/2003: EUR 9.9 m), on Group revenues of EUR 140.0 m (1-6/2003: EUR 154.5 m). As is usual in the industry, the bulk of this year's shipments will once again be made in the second half of the year. OUTLOOK Despite the persistently adverse trends on the municipal fire-equipment market in Europe, and especially in Germany, Management is nevertheless confident that the forecast targets - Group revenues of over EUR 300 m and EBT in excess of EUR 10 m - can still be attained. end of announcement euro adhoc 20.08.2004 --------------------------------------------------------------------- Further inquiry note: Gerda Königstorfer (Investor Relations) Telephone +43 732 6794-568 Fax: +43 732 6794 94568 Email: gerda.koenigstorfer@rosenbauer.com 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
