After having had a successful 2005/06 business year, the voestalpine Group has continued its undiminished positive performance during the first three months of the 2006/07 business year, which were characterized by strong demand in every essential sector of the market. Against this backdrop, as compared with the last three months of the previous business year, the voestalpine Group posted another increase in both sales revenue and operating result, as well as the result before and after taxes. The first quarter 2006/07 is thus the best individual quarter in the Group’s history.
