Heliad Equity Partners GmbH & Co. KGaA / Key word(s): Final Results

30.03.2012 / 19:47

Frankfurt am Main, 30 March 2012 - Heliad Equity Partners (ISIN: DE000A0L1NN5) has today published its definitive results for the 2011 financial year. The company generated consolidated sales (IFRS) of EUR 41.7 million from continuing operations in 2011 (previous year: EUR 51.4 million). At EUR 4.6 million, operating earnings (EBITDA) were positive (previous year: EUR 7.1 million). Net result for period significantly improved to EUR 4.3 million (previous year: EUR -24.8 million). In the previous year, discontinued operations had negatively affected net income while the effect was positive this year. Net income of EUR -9.8 million was reported for continuing operations (previous year: EUR 9.7 million). This figure was negatively affected in particular by devaluation of listed investments to account for the negative performance on the capital markets in the second half of 2011.

With total assets of EUR 83.5 million (previous year: EUR 131.1 million), the consolidated balance sheet showed a significantly higher equity ratio of 66 % (previous year: 39 %). Following successful disposals in 2011, cash and cash equivalents less financial liabilities increased to EUR 34.4 million in 2011 (previous year: EUR 30.7 million). The net asset value per share amounted to EUR 5.31 as of 31.12.2011 (previous year: EUR 5.62).

Following numerous disposals in the year 2011 and the completion of the portfolio streamlining, Heliad aims to make an increasing number of new investments in the 2012 financial year. Further selective sales of investments are also planned. The company's management believes that Heliad is well positioned to generate positive consolidated net income in the year 2012 and to secure the company's successful long-term development by making new investments.

The Annual Report will be published today in the Investor Relations section of Heliad's website at www.heliad.com.

The company's Annual General Meeting is expected to be held in Frankfurt am Main on 3 July 2012.
