In the course of the optimization of its existing portfolio, Heliad Equity Partners GmbH & Co. KGaA (ISIN: DE000A0L1NN5) disposed a further fund investment. This disposal generated a profit of at around 800,000 Euro respectively 7 Cents per share. At the same time, the open commitments and hence liabilities got reduced by 2.7 million Euro.
'This disposal and thus the generated profit underline our conservative valuation approach. Further disposals of ready-for-sale appointed funds are expected to be entirely finalized by the end of the third quarter 2010. Hence, we anticipate through this another cash inflow in the mid millions amount as additional liquidity and the realization of further profits for the year 2010. Through this, a fundamental part of the 2008 started portfolio optimization could be realized in the envisaged time of two years', states Christoph D. Kauter, Deputy CEO of Heliad Equity Partners.
