Financial Figures/Balance Sheet/9-month report
10.02.2016


Despite an increasingly challenging economic environment, voestalpine succeeded
in increasing sales and earnings in the first three quarters of the business
year 2015/16 in comparison to the respective figures of last year.
It has to be considered that the earnings of the first nine months 2015/16 as
well as those of last year's comparative period were affected by non-recurring
items (changes in consolidation in BY 2015/16 and divestments in BY 2014/15
respectively).
However by excluding these non-recurring items in both periods, the figures
increased as well.
In a macroeconomic environment, which became increasingly difficult at the end
of the calendar year - broad uncertainty in China, economic slowdown in North
America, ongoing recession in Brazil and Russia, only Europe with moderate
recovery trend - voestalpine Group was able to grow sales and earnings partly
significantly. Notably the Steel Division contributed to this favorable
development despite the (planned) relining of one blast furnace.
The development of the Special Steel as well as the Metal Engineering Division
was affected by the weak demand from the oil and gas industry. A trend
accelerating at the end of the reporting period, which could not be fully
compensated even by outstanding performing sectors like the railway
infrastructure or the aviation industry.
The Metal Forming Division benefited - like the complete voestalpine Group -
from an ongoing excellent development of the automotive industry.
As already stated in the report for the first half of the business year 2015/16,
a somewhat weaker second half is following an overall satisfactory first half of
2015/16, where - as stated before as well - including non-recurring items
(changes in consolidation), both the operating result (EBITDA) and profit from
operations (EBIT) are unchanged expected to be higher than the adjusted figures
of last year, whereas the adjusted earnings of BY 2015/16 will not be able to
reach last year's adjusted figures.
