Heliad Equity Partners (ISIN: DE000A0L1NN5) has today published its definitive figures for the 2010 financial year. The company generated consolidated sales from continuing operations of EUR 51 million (IFRS) in the 2010 financial year (2009: EUR 32 million). Operating earnings (EBITDA) rose year-on-year by EUR 8.3 million to EUR 7.1 million (2009: EUR -1.2 million) and were thus within the forecast target corridor. At EUR 9.7 million, consolidated net income at continuing operations significantly exceeded the previous year's group net loss of EUR -10.0 million. Discontinued operations negatively affected consolidated net income with an amount of EUR -34.5 million, as a result of which consolidated net income allocable to limited shareholders amounted to EUR -19.4 million. The negative contribution from these operations was already accounted for as appropriate in the calculation of the company's net asset value (NAV) at the end of the 2010 financial year, as a result of no further charge on NAV is applicable.

At EUR 131 million, the total assets reported in Heliad's consolidated balance sheet were 14 percent higher than in the previous year (2009: EUR 115 million). The equity ratio amounted to 39 percent of total capital. Liquid funds less financial liabilities increased to EUR 30.7 million (2009: EUR 16.8 million). The net asset value amounted to EUR 5.62 per share as of 31 December 2010.

As a result of the measures taken to optimise its structures, processes and portfolio, initiated in 2010 and currently still ongoing, Heliad has laid a good foundation to benefit from the expected continuation in the economic recovery in 2011 and subsequent years. In the current financial year, the company aims both to sell several investments and to acquire select new investments. The company's management is therefore confident that, provided that the macroeconomic framework remains stably positive, the company will generated positive group earnings in the current year and will be able to increase its net asset value in the long term.

The English version of the full year report and the group statements will be released under www.heliad.com at the beginning of next week.
Heliad's Annual General Meeting will be held in Frankfurt am Main on 29 June 2011.
