Dornbirn, Austria - In  the  2006/07  financial  year,  the  Zumtobel Group  of Austria more than doubled its net profits from EUR 49.5 million in the  previous year (PY) to  EUR  103.6  million.  Adjusted for  exceptional  items  and  non- recurring expenses, EBIT rose 13.3% to EUR 112.3 million, enabling the Group  to attain the targeted improvement in EBIT margin, which reached 9.1% (PY  adjusted EBIT margin: 8.5%).

Along with cost reductions generated  by  restructuring  measures,   the  Group's improved performance  was  largely  driven  by  further revenue  growth.  Group revenues moved ahead  5.6%  from  EUR   1,168.0  million  in  the  previous  year (adjusted for the sale  of the  airfield  lighting  business)  to  EUR  1,234.0 million in the year under review. As in the previous year, both of  the  Group's divisions contributed to  growth.  Revenues  increased  3.2%  in     the    luminaire    business,    while TridonicAtco posted two-digit growth as sales moved ahead 11.6%.

Based on the substantial upturn in earnings and  the  capital   increase  carried out in conjunction with initial public offering in May 2006, the  key  financial indicators showed a  further   improvement.  Thus,  by  the  balance-sheet  date, equity had increased by EUR 253.8 million to EUR 441.6 million and as a  result, the equity ratio rose from 17.3% to 38.6%.

Even compared to what had been a strong fourth  quarter  in  the   previous  year (EUR 303.7 million), revenues in the fourth quarter (February to April) were  up 3% at EUR 312.7 million. The adjusted EBIT margin rose 80 basic points to  stand at 8.1% (PY Q4: 7.3%). The fact that this was lower than the full-year  adjusted EBIT margin of 9.1% was due to  the  seasonal  nature  of  the  Group's  project business.

The Management Board and  Supervisory  Board  will  recommend  that   the  Annual General Meeting on 26 July 2007 approve the payment of a dividend  of  EUR  0.50 per share.

In the current financial year 2007/08, the Management Board is expecting to  see a further increase in revenues and EBIT.  Against   the  backdrop  of  a  healthy economy, the Zumtobel Group is targeting revenue growth of at least 5% and  thus aiming to  once   again  outperform  European  construction  industry  growth  by between  two  and  three  percentage  points.  In  terms  of  EBIT   margin,  the Management Board confirmed a target of 10% for the 2007/08 financial year.

Note to the editors The comparable prior year figures were adjusted to reflect  the  application  of IFRS 5 and IAS 19.
