Earnings Forecast
22.10.2020

Linz - voestalpine AG's result will be affected by non recurring write offs of
around EUR 200 million in the current business year 2020/21, in particular due
to impairment losses both at voestalpine Texas and to a lesser extent at
voestalpine Tubuluars.
These are realized because of the expected results at the end of the current
financial year, mainly due to global disparities triggered by the COVID-19
pandemic, as well as necessary adjustments to medium-term earnings expectations
at these companies.
The non-recurring write-offs are neither cash-effective nor affect EBITDA, but
do affect EBIT.
Due to the improvements in the economic environment, the Management Board
currently expects an EBITDA in a range of EUR 800 million to EUR 1 billion for
the entire business year 2020/21, assuming no further significant restrictions
in connection with the COVID-19 pandemic, such as "lockdowns", by the
authorities.
