Mattighofen, November 12th 2007 - KTM Power Sports AG, one of the world-wide leading manufacturers of Off-Road and On-road motorcycles, ATVs and the sports car X-Bow, improved its revenue, profit and sales in the fiscal year 2006/07.

Highest revenue in the corporate history The KTM group revenue increased by 14.0% from 496.8 Mio. EUR to 566.1 Mio. EUR compared to last year. The EBIT increased by 16.9% to 39.8 Mio. EUR compared to last year. The change in the representation of sponsor revenues and fees occurred in the fiscal year 2006/07. For reasons of comparison, the figures of fiscal year 2005/06 have been adjusted.

Besides the sustained high demand for Off-Road Competition models, this victory attributes to the successful launch of new street models (690 Supermoto, 990 Super Duke R, 950 Supermoto R), the increase in sales of Related Products and the growing OEM engines business.

The EBIT improved by 16.9% from 34.0 Mio. EUR to 39.8 Mio. EUR and a 3.57 EUR profit per share  was achieved, an increase of 23,1% compared to last year.

9.3% more employees compared to last year On average, KTM employed during the last fiscal year 1,778 people (1,931 as of closing date), 449 of which are employed abroad.

Outlook KTM is on the gas driving into the current fiscal year. The main focus lies on the development of new innovative products and the start of the X-Bow´s serial production. Furthermore, the expansion of capacities within the two-wheel and four-wheel segments has been initiated in order to be able to also warrant lasting growth in the future. For fiscal year 2007/08, another two-digit increase in revenue is expected. Also in the last fiscal year, the main single risk factor for the KTM group remains the foreign exchange rate, since the US-Dollar business has not been hedged yet. ++++
