Salzburg/Wien, 27 April 2016
Performance of the PALFINGER Group

In the first quarter of 2016, the performance of the PALFINGER Group was marked
by revenue growth and an extraordinarily strong increase in earnings. Revenue
rose by 9.1 per cent to EUR 318.8 million (Q1 2015: EUR 292.3 million), setting
a new record for a first-quarter result. EBIT showed an extraordinarily strong
increase of 28.6 per cent from EUR 23.5 million to EUR 30.2 million, which is a
new record as well. This, in turn, generated a marked increase in the EBIT
margin, which came to 9.5 per cent, as compared to 8.0 per cent in the first
quarter of the previous year. The consolidated net result for the first quarter
of 2016 was EUR 18.6 million, 29.0 per cent higher than the previous year's
figure. Earnings per share came to EUR 0.50, as compared to EUR 0.39 in the
previous year.

The present level of incoming orders gives reason to expect further positive
developments in the second quarter of 2016. In Europe, visibility is still low
but has stabilized in recent months. However, estimating the further development
of the market regions outside Europe has become somewhat more difficult.

The management continues to expect a growth in revenue of approx. 10 per cent
for 2016. PALFINGER still sees the potential to increase the annual revenue
generated by the Group, including the joint venture companies in China and
Russia, to approx. EUR 1.8 billion by 2017 and intends to reach this goal
through acquisitions and by completing its product portfolio in the market
regions outside Europe.
