Performance of the PALFINGER Group
The PALFINGER Group continued to post further growth in 2016. In the LAND
segment, which includes all traditional land-based product areas, growth was
recorded in Europe, North America and CIS as well as in the Asia and Pacific
region. Following the acquisition of Harding - the largest in the history of
PALFINGER - the marine business was bundled in the separate SEA segment. The
consolidated revenue recorded by the PALFINGER Group increased by 10.3 per cent
to the new record level of EUR 1,357.0 million, as compared to EUR 1,229.9
million in 2015. Despite comprehensive restructuring measures and integration
costs in North America and in the marine business, EBIT reached the new record
figure of EUR 106.0 million. The management's focus was on operating
profitability normalized by restructuring costs. EBITDAn rose to EUR 172.5
million, corresponding to an extraordinarily high increase of 11.7 per cent, and
the EBITDAn margin, at 12.7 per cent, was slightly above the previous year's
level.
 
Earnings and dividend
The significant improvement in earnings reported by the LAND segment also

facilitated an extraordinarily strong increase at Group level: Normalized EBITDA
(EBITDAn) went up by 11.7 per cent, from EUR 154.4 million in the previous year
to EUR 172.5 million, resulting in an EBITDAn margin of 12.7 per cent after
12.6 per cent in the same period of 2015.
EBIT increased by 1.6 per cent, from EUR 104.4 million to EUR 106.0 million,
which marks a new record figure.
The consolidated net result for the 2016 financial year was EUR 61.2 million,
5.0 per cent lower than the previous year's figure of EUR 64.4 million. Earnings
per share came to EUR 1.63, as compared to EUR 1.73 in 2015.
In line with PALFINGER's dividend policy, the Management Board is going to
propose to the Annual General Meeting that a dividend of EUR 0.57 be distributed
for the 2016 financial year.
 
Outlook
The conditions predicted for 2017 harbour a great deal of political and economic
uncertainty. Nevertheless, the management considers further revenue growth to be
realistic in light of the satisfactory level of incoming orders in the fourth
quarter of 2016 and in early 2017.
