Key figures 1st quarter 2003 1-3/2003 1-3/2002 Revenue EUR m 74.3 64.6 EBIT EUR m 5.1 5.4 EBT EUR m 4.2 4.5 Profit after tax EUR m 2.5 2.3 Net profit for the period EUR m 1.4 1.5 Cash-flow from pre-tax profit EUR m 6.2 5.0 Capital investments EUR m 1.3 0.7 Order backlog (end of the first quarter) EUR m 228.0 246.8 Order intake EUR m 72.2 54.7 Employees 1269 1264 Market capitalisation (end of the 1st quarter) EUR m 46.8 36.7

On revenues of EUR 74.3 m (up 15 % on the comparable figure of EUR 64.6 m for 1-3/2002), the Group posted EBT of EUR 4.2 m (1-3/2002:
EUR 4.5 m). The higher revenues are largely attributable to stepped-up deliveries of export orders from Austria and Spain. The biggest contributors to the result in the 1st quarter of 2003 were the Group's companies in Austria, the USA and Spain.
Outlook
Positive forecast for 2003. In view of the very healthy state of order books and the resultant high level of capacity utilisation at the Group's main production facilities, Management expects year-2003 revenues to climb to over EUR 300 m (2002: EUR 286.5 m), with a result that is comparable to the good result achieved in 2002.
