1) Proposal to the AGM

The Rosenbauer Group continued its growth in 2014 and again posted record
revenues. Its long-term growth strategy allowed it to further expand its
business and grow its revenues in the regions of North America and Asia and
Oceania. The revenues of the Rosenbauer Group reached a record level of
EUR 784.9 million in the 2014 financial year (2013: EUR 737.9 million). This
corresponds to an increase of 6% as against the previous year. The main
contributors to the rise in revenues were S.K. Rosenbauer, which increased
deliveries in the Asian region, and the Spanish and US companies.
 
At EUR 48.4 million, EBIT in the 2014 financial year was up 14% on the previous
year (2013: EUR 42.3 million), while the EBIT margin climbed from 5.7% to 6.2%.
A significant share of this improvement was accounted for by the German and
American segments, the latter of which on account of the further optimization of
chassis production at Rosenbauer Motors. The capitalization of development costs
of EUR 3.4 million (2013: EUR 2,3 million) also had a positive effect on
earnings.
 
Even though the situation on the fire equipment markets is not the same all over
the world, a slight recovery in overall demand is nonetheless anticipated. Given
the solid development in incoming orders in recent months and the expanded
production capacity, management is assuming that consolidated revenues will rise
in 2015.

The following factors in particular are significant to the income situation in
2015:
 
The currently very high expenses for the launch of new products, appearing at
the world's largest trade fair and tapping new markets such as France and the UK
will not positively affect earnings until after a delay.
 
In order for the intended growth to be implemented on a solid financial basis,
the processes and workflows in all areas of production have to be optimized
further. The investment in the new Plant II is already bearing first fruit.
However, the optimized processes relating to the two most important vehicle
series, the PANTHER and the AT, will not have a positive effect on earnings
until later years.
 
On the basis of the forecast market development and the above factors, the
management target is to increase revenues and EBIT by 10% for the 2015 financial
year.
