Financial Figures/Balance Sheet/9-month report
10.02.2015


The global economic development slowed significantly in the course of the
business year 2014/15. Only North America was able to strengthen its growth
track and China remained on stable levels. In contrast Europe is still waiting
for a recovery, Japan and Brazil stay weak and Russia is in recession.
In an annual comparison voestalpine Group held up well in this environment due
to its orientation towards technology and quality.
The Group was able to increase earnings in all reporting categories
significantly, where only a part is stemming from positive one-off effects from
portfolio optimization measures.
The gearing ratio (net financial debt in relation to equity) increased due to
the redemption of the hybrid bond 2007 in October 2014, which was treated as
equity in the balance sheet, in the planned amount.
The outlook for the business year 2014/15 remains unchanged: From the current
vantage point, it can be anticipated that the operating result (EBITDA) and
profit from operations (EBIT) (even excluding the positive one-off effects) of
the voestalpine Group will be somewhat higher than the figures of the past
business year.
