*continued operations

For the 2005/2006 business year, the voestalpine Group will, for the first time, show sales of significantly over EUR 6 billion. The operating result (EBIT) should total nearly EUR 700 million. These figures already take account of the higher costs incurring in the 4th quarter for logistics and energy due to the harsh winter, the higher levels of personnel expenses relative to the first nine months of the year, and the very significant increase in the price of zinc seen over the last several months.

More information on the 3rd quarter result is available on our website www.voestalpine.com or contact our Investor Relations +43 732 6585-9949.
