Against an increasingly difficult economic backdrop, Group revenues reached EUR 286.5 m in 2002, some 5 % above the figure posted in 2001 (EUR 273.7 m). In line with the increase in the profit from operations, the "Profit before tax" (EBT) rose threefold from EUR 5.1 m to EUR 15.7 m. The main reasons for this improvement over the previous yearÂ’s result are the successful turnaround of the German production facilities, restructuring and rationali-sation measures at the Austrian facilities, and the very good results achieved by the subsidiaries in the USA and Spain.

Dividend proposal. The Executive Board intends to propose to the General Meeting that a higher dividend of EUR 1.50 per share (2001: EUR 1.00 per share) should be distributed for the 2002 financial year.

In view of the high level of order books at the beginning of this year, production capacity at the main Group companies is being utilised at a high level. The Management of the Group expects the 2003 financial year to bring further increases in revenues, and a result that is at least the equal of 2002.
