++ Heliad's stake in DEAG exceeds 25% notification limit
Heliad Equity Partners GmbH & Co. KGaA (ISIN: DE000A0L1NN5/ WKN: A0L 1NN) announced today that the proportion of voting rights it holds in DEAG Deutsche Entertainment AG, Berlin (ISIN DE000A0Z23G6/ WKN: A0Z23G) exceeded the 25% notification threshold on 30 September 2009 and now stands at 25.12%.

Heliad considers DEAG as a fitting and highly promising addition to its investment portfolio, which is geared towards established, owner-managed service providers with annual sales of between EUR 10 million and EUR 100 million. Heliad's management considered the increase in the proportion of voting rights announced today to be opportune based on the current valuation of DEAG.
