Heliad publishes quarterly report for Q1 2011

Ad-hoc announcement pursuant to § 15 WpHG

Frankfurt am Main, 12 May 2011 - Heliad Equity Partners (ISIN: DE000A0L1NN5) publishes its definitive figures for the first quarter 2011 as of today. The company generated consolidated sales from continuing operations of EUR 7.9 million (IFRS) in the first quarter 2011 (Q1 2010: EUR 9.3 million). Operating earnings (EBITDA) as of EUR -0.9 million are below previous year figures (Q1 2010: EUR 0.6 million). At EUR 1.2 million, consolidated net income at continuing operations exceeded the corresponding previous year's quarterly group net income of EUR 0.1 million. Discontinued operations positively affected consolidated net income with an amount of EUR 14.9 million. This contribution to net income results mainly from effects of the deconsolidation of RT group due to insolvency filing (EUR 18.3 million) and is not liquidity-related.

At EUR 116 million, the total assets reported in Heliad's consolidated balance sheet were 12 percent lower than in the previous year (12/31/2010: EUR 131 million). Liquid funds less financial liabilities decreased to EUR 19.2 million (12/31/2010: EUR 30.7 million) due to repayments of short-term other liabilities. The net asset value amounted to EUR 6.03 per share as of 31 March 2011 (12/31/2010 EUR 5.62 per share).
