•  Sales and order intake still very satisfactory  •  Revenues increased in the first half of 2005/06 compared to previous year

Krems, 27 October 2005. In spite of the continuing difficulty of the market environment for the European automobile industry and its suppliers, all Eybl’s key financial indicators were again satisfactory.

New and follow-up orders worth over EUR 241m were taken in the first half of 2005/06, following the record levels achieved at the end of the last financial year. This positive order book performance reflects the strength of Eybl’s market presence. Sales of EUR 169m were slightly up on 2004/05 (EUR 167.8m).

Slightly higher revenues in the first half of 2005/06 were the product of massive efforts on the part of the whole Group: the total of EUR 169.0m exceeded the previous year’s total by EUR 1.2m, counter to market trends. Broken down by technologies, the picture was as follows: with 63.9%, fabrication accounted for EUR 108.0m of the total; textiles production made up approximately 22%, or EUR 37.2m; interiors contributed around EUR 20.0m, or 11.9%, to the total; services business was EUR 3.8m, or 2.2%.

Group EBIT for the first half of 2005/06 came to EUR 4.2m, down on the total of EUR 5.1m for the comparable last year, due to increased costs. POA (profit from ordinary activities) was EUR 2.0m (first half 2004/05: EUR 3.6m). Net profit for the period amounted to EUR 2.6m, compared to EUR 3.4m in the previous financial year. Cash flow before working capital changes was EUR 7.4m, after EUR 7.9m in first half 2004/05.

At 30 September 2005 the Group’s total assets were EUR 198.9m, up 8% on 2004/05’s EUR 184.2m. The equity ratio of 33.6% represents yet another improvement over 2004/05 (32.4% at 30 September 2005). This excellent outcome gives the Eybl Group a healthy balance sheet and makes it one of the best-capitalised companies in the industry.

At 30 September 2005 the Group employed a total of 3,995 people at 17 sites.
