-------------------------------------------------------------------------------- Disclosure announcement transmitted by euro adhoc. The issuer is responsible for the content of this announcement. -------------------------------------------------------------------------------- 23.05.2006 The Rosenbauer Group got off to a good start in 2006, with comparatively high capacity utilisation. 2006 will be characterised once again by the dynamic development of the Group’s US companies and by rising demand in international export business. ROSENBAUER GROUP 1-3/2006 1-3/2005 Revenue in m EUR 61.8 64.2 EBIT in m EUR 1.1 2.0 EBT in m EUR 0.3 1.3 Consolidated profit in m EUR 0.3 1.0 Investments in m EUR 2.7 1.0 Order backlog as at 31.03. in m EUR 292.6 208.9 Order intake in m EUR 109.5 65.4 Employees 1,413 1,383 Earnings per share in EUR (0.3) 0.0 Owing to deferred shipments, the Group’ first-quarter revenues and result were below the level for last year. As shipments in the fire-equipment sector tend to be made in the second half of the year, this seasonal pattern is entirely usual. New logistics centre in Leonding. The substantial increases in capacity utilisation at the plant in Leonding in recent years have made it necessary to enlarge the production facilities at the Leonding site. The new logistics centre, on which work started in 2005, was completed earlier this year. Work is now in progress on relocating all the warehousing areas and adapting the freed-up production space for new uses; this is to be completed in the third quarter of 2006. REVENUE AND RESULTS TRENDS The Rosenbauer Group posted revenues of EUR 61.8 m in the first quarter of 2006 (1-3/2005: EUR 64.2 m). Due to stepped-up shipments of export orders by the US companies, revenues in the US segment rose by around 13% to EUR 25.3 m (1-3/2005: EUR 22.3 m). At EUR 32.3 m (1-3/2005: EUR 35.0 m), the Austrian companies’ revenues fell short of planned levels, owing to the deferral of certain shipments. Owing to the drop in revenues, the operating result (EBIT) fell back to EUR 1.1 m (1-3/2005: EUR 2.0 m). EBT came to EUR 0.3 m (1-3/2005: EUR 1.3 m). ORDERS Order intake in the Group reached an absolute record level of EUR 109.5 m in the first three months of the year (1-3/2005: EUR 65.4 m). This rise is attributable to international project business. Order-book levels at 31 March 2006 increased to EUR 292.6 m (31 March 2005: EUR 208.9 m). This large reserve of unfilled orders assures a very high level of capacity utilisation at the production facilities. OUTLOOK In view of the continued growth of the Group’s business in the USA and the high level of demand on international markets, Management expects the 2006 financial year to see the Group continuing to grow, with an accompanying increase in its revenues and earnings. end of announcement euro adhoc 23.05.2006 07:30:00 -------------------------------------------------------------------------------- ots Originaltext: Rosenbauer International AG Im Internet recherchierbar: http://www.presseportal.de Further inquiry note: Gerda Königstorfer, Spokesperson, Investor Relations Phone: +43 732 6794-568 Fax: +43 732 6794-89 Mobile: +43/664 4547636 Email: gerda.koenigstorfer@rosenbauer.com Branche: Machine Manufacturing ISIN: AT0000922554 WKN: 892502 Index: WBI, ATX Prime Börsen: Börse Berlin-Bremen / free trade Baden-Württembergische Wertpapierbörse / free trade Wiener Börse AG / official dealing
