  . Group revenues up by 47% to EUR 1.6 billion
  . Increases in all major indicators
      EBITDA up 58%
      EBIT up 69%
      EBT up 84%
  . Continued growth planned for 2007

Vienna,  19  February  2007.  A-TEC  Industries  AG  (ISIN AT00000ATEC9),    the international industrial group, recently listed on the  Vienna  Stock  Exchange. With the publication of its preliminary results for financial 2006, it  has  now given an impressive demonstration of its ongoing successful performance.

Based on the preliminary figures, its  published  financial indicators  show  a marked improvement over  2005.  Consolidated revenues  for  2006  have  reached EUR 1.594 bn, 47.1% higher than in  2005  (EUR 1.084 bn).  Earnings  indicators have also improved significantly: earnings before  interest,  tax,  depreciation and amortisation (EBITDA), at EUR 125.8m, were 58.4%  higher  than  last year's EUR 79.4m, while earnings before interest and tax  (EBIT)  of EUR 93.4m  topped 2005's EUR 55.0m by 69.9%. A-TEC Industries' earnings before tax (EBT) has  also jumped -  by  84.0%,  from  EUR 43.0m  to  EUR 79.1m.  The  Group's  success  is reflected in the price of its stock, which has climbed by some 40%  since  first listing.

Plant engineering - Austrian Energy & Environment

In 2006 Austrian Energy & Environment, the Group's plant  engineering business, was successful in  winning  numerous  major  international contracts  totalling EUR 1.228 bn, so that at  the  year  end  its order  book  stood  at  a  record EUR 1.453 bn.  The  AE&E  Group's sales  and    earnings    figures    also    grew impressively in the last 12 months. Revenues were up 38.3%, from  EUR 443.3m  to EUR 613.1m, EBITDA came out at EUR 30.9m, 13.2%  higher  than  in  the previous year (EUR 27.3m), and EBIT climbed from EUR 23.1m to  EUR 26.3m.  At  EUR 31.6m, EBT was 37.5% up on the comparable figure for last year (EUR 23.0m).

Drive systems - ATB Austria Antriebstechnik

ATB Austria Antriebstechnik AG, which is  also  stock  exchange listed  and  is responsible for drive systems, posted greatly increased revenues of  EUR 304.5m, a  44.2%  improvement  on  2005's EUR 211.1m,  an  achievement  all  the    more impressive given the strained situation in global commodities  markets.  It  has strengthened its market presence and secured an entry to several important  new markets. The integration of its Serbian  company  and the  acquisition  in  the first half of 2006 of a majority interest in  the  Singapore-based  Lindeteves- Jacoberg Group has however acted as a damper  on  drive  systems  earnings.  The preliminary figures reveal that although ATB Group's EBITDA has risen  by  76.7% to EUR 25.8m (2005:  EUR 14.6m)  and  its  EBIT  by  48.6%  to  EUR 9.3m  (2005: EUR 6.3m), its EBT fell back to EUR -0.9m (2005: EUR 1.1m).

Machine Tools - EMCO

EMCO Group's machine tool  business  has  an  ambitious  product strategy:  its acquisition of Italian  market  leader  FAMUP  and technology  provider  MECOF, combined with its very active development department,  have  turned  it  into  a full-line supplier and allowed it to boost revenues  by  a  satisfactory  36.9%. After sales of EUR 124.7m in 2005, the  Group's  preliminary  figures  for 2006 show a record EUR 170.8m, which is primarily the result of its expanded  market share in Germany. The performance indicators are even more impressive  than  the revenue, and well above the levels achieved elsewhere in  the  industry.  EBITDA grew by 76.5% to EUR 21.7m  (2005:  EUR 12.3m),  EBIT  by  162.7%  to  EUR 15.5m (2005: EUR 5,9m) and EBT by 326.7% to EUR 12.8m (2005: EUR 3.0m).

Metallurgy - Montanwerke Brixlegg

In 2006 Montanwerke Brixlegg benefited from the  strong  growth  in demand  for copper worldwide, as the preliminary results show: revenues were up 65.1%,  from EUR 306.5m to a record EUR 506.1m. Its already  respectable  earnings  measures also improved, with  EBITDA reaching  EUR 48.2m,  86.0%  up  on  the  EUR 25.9m achieved in 2005. Both EBIT  and  EBT  also  grew  strongly,  to  EUR 43.2m  and EUR 40.2m respectively, after EUR 21.1m and EUR 18.6m in 2005.

In the light  of  the  overall  economic  situation,  the  Management Board  is currently optimistic about the prospects for 2007, and  is looking  forward  to further  increases  in  revenue  of  roughly EUR 2 bn    and    a    corresponding improvement in earnings. As announced at the time of the IPO,  A-TEC  Industries is constantly on the look out for potential acquisitions that  can  sensibly  be added to the existing businesses.
