Frankfurt/Main, March 18th 2016 - Heliad Equity Partners (ISIN: DE000A0L1NN5) today publishes its figures for FY 2015.

Both net profit for 2015 in the financial statements prepared pursuant to HGB [German Commercial Code] of EUR 1.1 million (prior year EUR 13.9 million) and consolidated net profit of EUR 22.6 Mio. (prior year EUR 18.0 Mio.) pursuant to IFRS accounting principles show a continued and sustainable positive development of Heliad.

This positive result was due both to the positive overall performance of the portfolio as well as especially because of successful cash exits.

In parallel to those results, Heliad's Net Asset Value (NAV) increased by app. 27% from 8.53 euros per share to 10.87 euros per share over the course of 2015.

According to Index-Provider LPX the average NAV-performance of listed private equity companies in 2015 globally has been 10.48% and 10.77% of the European ones. Hence Heliad is one of the top performing listed private equity companies globally.
For 2016, Heliad management is - based on the positive outlook given by its existing portfolio companies and a comfortable cash position for new investments - optimistic to deliver once again favorable results.

Based on the results achieved, the Management and Supervisory Board will propose to the shareholders' meeting on July 12 a dividend of 0.20 euros per share. In relation to the current share price, this dividend payment equals a return of app. 3 percent. Also in 2015, Heliad had delivered a dividend return of approx. 3%. For the years to come it is the declared goal of the management to have shareholders participate in the ongoing success with a regular and sustainable dividend return in similar relations.
