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.
