9-month report


Krems, 31 January 2008. Eybl International AG - a manufacturer of automobile interiors listed on the Prime Market of the Vienna Stock Exchange - announces that, to coincide with the changes in the Managing Board of Eybl International AG, the company has been requested by the Supervisory Board to prepare a report on the current status, details of which are now being drawn up.

The closing ratios for the first three quarters are as follows:

Q1-Q3          Q1-Q3
Ratio                                                                    2007/08         2006/07

Turnover (in millions of EUR)                                 216.8          253.3
EBIT (in millions of EUR)                                         -3.7              6.3
EBITDA margin in %                                                      4.5              6.8
Surplus/shortfall for the period
(in millions of EUR)                                                 -9.9              3.3
Orders received (in millions of EUR)                         209          196.2
Orders on hand (in millions of EUR)                          980          1,005
Employees                                                                 4,134          4,167

The development of EBIT is the result of a notable fall in turnover in the quarter 2007/08 compared with the same period of the previous year, which led to under utilisation of capacity and had a negative effect on results of around 1.9 million EUR. A further burden on results of EUR 0.8 million stemmed from operational variances. A revaluation of some special projects initiated in the financial year 2007/08 revealed the need for value adjustments totalling EUR 3.5 million which were carried out as of the reporting date 31.12.2007.

The extensive report on the first three quarters will be published during February 2008. A notable upturn in turnover and a balanced operative EBIT are expected in the fourth quarter 2007/08.

On the basis of the documents available thus far for preparation of the status report referred to, it is to be expected that the financial year ending on 31.3.2008 will close with a turnover of just below EUR 300 million and - as a result of additional value adjustments - with a foreseeable annual shortfall of EUR 27 million.

For reasons of current interest, Eybl International AG hereby extends an invitation to a press conference today:
