pleased to have won several prestigious awards.

On June 7, 2017, the Lenzing Group was given the Golden Pegasus Award as the

were conferred upon the winners at the end of May. The Lenzing Group was ranked

which stand out on the capital market with respect to the following criteria:
financial reporting, investor relations, strategy, business management,
corporate governance, sustainability and market-related factors. The
achievements of the publicly listed companies are assessed by a jury of experts.
