  • Heliad publishes quarterly financial report for Q3 2011


Frankfurt am Main, 15 November 2011 - Heliad Equity Partners (ISIN: DE000A0L1NN5) publishes its definitive figures for the first three quarters as of today. The company generated consolidated sales from continuing operations of EUR 32.3 million (IFRS) in the first three quarters 2011 (Q3 2010: EUR 40.8 million). Operating earnings (EBITDA) as of EUR 3.0 million are above previous year figures (Q3 2010: EUR 2.3 million). The decline in valuations of listed companies due to the recent turbulence in financial markets burdened the net income with a net effect of EUR -3.3 million in the third quarter. Net income from continuing operations therefore amounted to EUR -4.6 million in the first three quarters (Q3 2010: EUR 4.8 million). Discontinued operations positively affected consolidated net income with an amount of EUR 14.1 million so that the consolidated net income in the first three quarters amounted to EUR 9.5 million. This contribution to net income resulted mainly from effects of the deconsolidation of portfolio companies.

With total assets amounting to EUR 97.6 million in the consolidated balance sheet of
Heliad as of 30 September 2011, an increased equity of EUR 61.2 million (31.12.2010: EUR 50.6 million) and a sound equity ratio of 63% (31.12.2010: 39%) is shown. Cash and cash equivalents less financial liabilities were reduced by repayments of short-term liabilities to EUR 27.2 million (31.12.2010: EUR 30.7 million). On 30 September 2011 the net asset value amounted to EUR 5.22 per share (31.12.2010: EUR 5.62 per share).

The quarterly financial report will be released today under the section Investor Relations on www.heliad.com.
