Dissemination of an Ad hoc announcement according to § 15 WpHG, transmitted by DGAP - a company of EquityStory AG.
The issuer is solely responsible for the content of this announcement.

As announced on 7 June 2011, acting on the authorisation provided by the Annual General Meeting on 26 August 2010, Heliad Equity Partners GmbH & Co. KGaA (ISIN: DE000A0L1NN5) is buying back a total of up to ten percent of the company's share capital, corresponding to up to 1,214,580 individual registered shares.

Because of the low liquidity in the market and the limit of the acquisition of 25% of the average daily turnover, the share buyback program would last disproportionately long. In the case of low liquidity in the market the Regulation 2273/3003 of the European Commission allows the ability to purchase instead of the usually 25% up to 50% of the average daily turnover per day.

After consultation with the Federal Financial Supervisory Authority (BaFin), Heliad will now make use of this option and acquire up to 50% of the average daily turnover per day.
