This very pleasing revenue trend is primarily attributable to the Spanish, German, Singapore and US segments. The Austrian segment’s revenues of EUR 118.3 m (1-9/2005: EUR 119.6 m) were largely derived from international export sales. The US segment was successful in adding new sales partners to its distribution network, taking its revenues for the first nine months up another 5% (after the 40 % rise it scored last year over the same period of 2004) to a total of EUR 74.9 m (1-9/2005: EUR 71.6 m). Developments have also been highly satisfactory at the Spanish Group company, which managed to more than double its revenues for the period in question to EUR 16.9 m (1-9/2005: EUR 8.4 m), mainly with sales on its home market. The operating result (EBIT) rose from EUR 9.7 m (1-9/2005) to EUR 11.9 m on the back of the wider margins achieved in international export business and the improvement in the result of Metz Aerials GmbH & Co.KG. EBT increased correspondingly, from EUR 7.8 m (1-9/2005) to EUR 9.1 m. Inauguration of the logistics centre An investment volume in excess of EUR 9.0 m is envisaged for the current financial year. Of this amount, EUR 7.8 m had already been invested by the end of the third quarter. The lion’s share of the investment outlays went on expanding manufacturing capacity at the Leonding site. The 140th anniversary celebrations on September 29, 2006 marked the completion of the site reorganisation project and the formal opening of the new logistics centre. In carrying out this strategic investment, Rosenbauer has taken a crucial step towards further expansion and geared up the Leonding facility to meet the challenges of the years ahead. ORDERS The positive order trend continued unbroken through the third quarter as well, with incoming orders throughout the Group up 39% in the first nine months of 2006 to a total of EUR 337.7 m (1-9/2005: EUR 243.1 m). Order backlog per September 30 soared from EUR 218.4 m (September 30, 2005) to EUR 337.6 m, the highest figure in the Group’s history. OUTLOOK Rosenbauer Group Management expects that the pattern of business for the rest of this year will be as already forecast.

For the year as a whole, Group revenues are expected to be some 10% higher (2005: EUR 321.3 m) with the result (EBIT) up by over 15% (2005: EUR 19.6 m). end of announcement euro adhoc 28.11.2006 07:30:00 -------------------------------------------------------------------------------- ots Originaltext: Rosenbauer International AG Im Internet recherchierbar: http://www.presseportal.ch Further inquiry note: For further information please contact: Robert Kastil, Member of the Executive Board Gerda Königstorfer, Investor Relations, Spokesperson Phone: +43 732 6794-568 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
