Dornbirn, Austria - The Zumtobel Group based in Dornbirn, Austria, closed its books on financial 2005/06 at the end of April with adjusted revenue growth of 6%. Thus, for the first time since 2000, the past financial year brought a clear increase in revenues and a further improvement in profit.

Revenues rose EUR 55.0 million to EUR 1,184.2 million (PY: EUR 1,129.2 million), which equates to an increase of 4.9%. When prior-year revenues are adjusted for sales reported by the Group’s former Toolmaking division, sold-off by way of an MBO in financial 2004/05, growth amounts to 6%.

Adjusted for restructuring costs and non-recurring items, EBIT (earnings before interest and taxes) moved ahead by EUR 9.4 million (+10.4% year-on-year) to EUR 99.5 million. Without that adjustment, EBIT totalled EUR 86.1 million, which equates to an increase of EUR 2.5 million (+3.0%). Net profit increased in financial 2005/06 by EUR 14.5 million or 49.7% to EUR 43.6 million, against EUR 29.1 million in 2004/05.

For financial 2006/07, management is anticipating a further increase in revenues on account of a healthier market environment and continuation of the growth initiatives at the company. The unremit-ting pursuit of the efficiency drive, the absence of restructuring costs in the new financial year and lower financing costs on account of the improved capital structure generated by the IPO should - pro-viding the market situation remains positive - lead to a further tangible improvement in profit.
