Interim figures 2006

28.02.2007

The Rosenbauer Group continued to expand last year, achieving a substantial increase in business volume. Group revenues rose to EUR 370.0 Mio (2005: EUR 321.3 Mio), the highest figure ever. Export sales from Austria, stepped-up shipments of aerial appliances from Karlsruhe, increased sales volumes on the Spanish market and continued growth in the Group’s US business were all key drivers here.

A 28 % improvement was achieved over the previous year’s operating result, taking 2006 EBIT to EUR 25.1 Mio (2005: EUR 19.6 Mio). The international export successes from Austria, the turnaround at Metz Aerials and the huge increases in output all made major contributions to this improvement.

This positive development was driven by new products, by significant gains in market share in international and US business, and by ongoing increases in productivity.

At EUR 485.9 Mio (2005: EUR 377.0 Mio), the volume of order intake in 2006 was well above the level of the past two years. This has led to a great increase in capacity utilisation during the current financial year. Another new record notched up in 2006 was for order backlog at the year-end, totalling EUR 354.1 Mio as against EUR 243.1 Mio in 2005.
