*) The disclosure of the previous year's figures for 2014 has been revised as
necessitated by the readjustment of segment reporting.

The Rosenbauer Group's revenues reached a top level of EUR 864 million in the
2015 financial year (2014: EUR 813.8 million), marking a year-on-year increase
of 6%. This rise in revenues was possible due primarily to the good economic
situation and the stronger U.S. dollar in North America. In some Asian
countries, the low oil price was already reflected in a lower propensity to
invest among customers, but Rosenbauer nonetheless continued its revenue growth
in Arab countries. 

At EUR 50.2 million, EBIT in the 2015 financial year was up 4% on the previous
year (2014: EUR 48.4 million), meaning that the EBIT margin remained constant
year-on-year at 5.8%. Although consolidated earnings developed positively in
2015 due to U.S. business, the year was dominated mainly by expenses for the
Group's appearance at world's largest trade fair and by higher freight costs.

In addition, consolidated earnings came under pressure due to fluctuations in
capacity utilization during the year in some areas of production, postponements
of deliveries at the end of the year, and preliminary costs for tapping new

The increase in earnings was attributable largely to the American segment as a
result of the expansion of business on the U.S. market and the development of
the dollar, while optimized production of the COMMANDER chassis at Rosenbauer
Motors also contributed to the improvement in earnings.

Rosenbauer has now completed the acquisition of G&S Brandschutztechnik AG, a
stationary fire protection specialist based in Mogendorf, Germany, and is
acquiring 100% of the shares in G&S Brandschutztechnik from the owning company
with retroactive effect from January 1, 2016. The company most recently
generated revenues of EUR 14.3 million with 130 employees. The G&S Group's
activities comprise the planning, production and installation through to
servicing of systems for preventative fire protection.
