Company Information/20 years as listed company

-Rosenbauer celebrates 20 years as a listed company
-Sustainable company and share price development
-Family and institutional investors as stable shareholders
-All-time high of EUR 72.55 on September 15, 2014

Rosenbauer International AG went public on September 27, 1994 at an issue price
of EUR 55.594 - or EUR 13.898 calculated on the basis of the 2007 share split.
Almost 20 years to the day and with suitably good timing, the share price
reached a historic all-time high of EUR 72.55. The performance of the share
price reflects the company's development over the same period: while the
revenues of Rosenbauer International AG have increased sixfold since the IPO,
from around EUR 123 million to EUR 738 million in the past year, the company's
value on the stock exchange has increased more than fivefold.

This solid business development is also reflected in the continuous payment of a
dividend that has risen steadily over recent years. The dividend increased from
EUR 0.15 to EUR 1.20 per share in the period from 2000 to 2013, while the
dividend yield in the past ten years has always been between 2.0% and 3.6%.

Stable shareholder structure
The composition of the shareholder structure is as stable and sustainable as the
development of the company itself. A total of 6.8 million no-par value bearer
shares are in circulation, of which 51% are held by Rosenbauer
Beteiligungsverwaltung GmbH, a company formed by the family shareholders. The
shares in free float are held by international fund companies with a long-term
focus, primarily from Austria, Germany, France, the United Kingdom, Denmark,
Sweden and Belgium, which provides stability.

The family has stood behind the company since its formation by Johann Rosenbauer
in 1866. "As a strong core shareholder, together with the institutional
investors, the Rosenbauer family serves to ensure the company's long-term
strategic focus and its continuous development," commented Dieter Siegel, CEO of
Rosenbauer International AG.

Green light for internationalization
When they were issued 20 years ago, Rosenbauer's shares were seven times
oversubscribed. They were also subscribed for by more than 70% of the company's
employees - both absolute records for Austria at the time. The aim of the IPO
was to generate fresh capital for planned growth projects, particularly the
first investments in the USA, the acquisition of the German aerial manufacturer
Metz, and the expansion of the international sales network. Today, the Group has
production sites on three continents and is the world's leading fire service
corporation, with a sales and service network spanning more than 100 countries.

Numerous awards
Rosenbauer International AG trades on the Vienna Stock Exchange under ISIN:
AT0000922554 and is listed in the Prime Market segment. The company's shares are
also traded on the regulated unofficial market of the Berlin, Düsseldorf,
Hamburg, Munich and Stuttgart stock exchanges under German Securities Code
Number (WKN) DE 892502. 

Rosenbauer and its corporate strategy, investor relations and share price
development have frequently won awards in recent years, including second place
in the Vienna Stock Exchange Small & Mid Cap Prize in 2013 and 2014, second
place in the ten-year ranking of the Strategic Performance Test 2013, and second
place in the three-year ranking of the Strategic Performance Test 2011
