**)Proposal to Annual General Meeting

Rosenbauer further consolidated its leading market position in 2015. The Group
continued its growth and set new records for revenues and earnings. The revenues
of the Rosenbauer Group reached a record level of EUR 865.4 million in the 2015
financial year (2014: EUR 813.8 million). This marks an increase of 6% as
against the previous year. The increase is due essentially to the good economic
situation in North America and the strong US dollar. However, Rosenbauer also
increased revenues in the Middle East, although some countries showed more
reluctance to invest because of the low price of oil.
 
At EUR 50.6 million, EBIT in the 2015 financial year was up 5% on the previous
year (2014: EUR 48.4 million), while the EBIT margin was largely unchanged at
5.8%.
 
Even though consolidated earnings developed positively thanks to US business,
2015 was also heavily affected by the expenses for appearing at the world's
biggest industry trade fair and higher vehicle delivery costs. Earnings were
also squeezed by fluctuations in capacity utilization in some areas of
production during the year, delays in delivery at the end of the year and up-
front costs for tapping new markets. Measures were therefore taken in the
reporting period to accelerate ongoing market cultivation activities, to enhance
efficiency and to reduce costs.
 
Rosenbauer follows a growth-oriented and sustainable dividend policy that is
consistent with the company's performance. To mark the 150th anniversary of the
company, the Executive Board and the Supervisory Board are proposing dividend of
EUR 1.5 (2014: EUR 1.2) per share at the Annual General Meeting. Accordingly,
the distribution volume for 6.8 million no-par-value shares will be EUR 10.2
million (2014: EUR 8.2 million). Based on the closing price of EUR 66.6, this
corresponds to a dividend yield of 2.3% (2014: 1.7%).
 
Despite the somewhat modest growth prospects and even if political unrest and
the low price of oil affect procurement in some countries, a stable development
in overall demand is expected in the fire equipment sector for 2016. Given the
solid incoming orders in recent months and the production capacity available,
management is assuming that consolidatedrevenues can increase further in 2016.
 
The forecast growth in sales and revenues is expected to have a positive impact
on earnings in 2016, even though the development of Rosenbauer's key markets is
becoming more difficult to forecast. Thanks to the successful launch of new
products, the high order backlog and the growing effect of the measures
introduced to enhance efficiency and reduce costs, management is anticipating
further increase in revenues and earnings for the 2016 financial year.
