quarterly report


The ongoing economic recovery leads to further improvements in sales and soaring earnings of voestalpine Group. Besides considerable progression in volumes, the implementation of efficiency and cost saving programs are substantial drivers of the actual earnings development. The gearing ratio decreases by 4.1% within the last quarter to 67.2% at present, based on the obvious positive net income and the consistently low kept investments. Based on the developments so far, the earnings estimation for the business year 2010/11 has to be valued very significantly above last year´s level, even by taking formidable contingencies concerning the economic situation in 2011 into account.
