This equates an increase of liquid assets of 68 cents per share respectively a realized EPS of 16 cents. Through this transaction, Heliad further advances its portfolio focus on majority holdings in asset-light service companies in the German mid-market.

Information and Explaination of the Issuer to this News:
'Disposing this minority holding of our portfolio we have accomplished a major part of our portfolio optimization. With RTT, a good company could be sold to a strategic buyer consortium. With an increased NAV of EUR 6.50, the selling proceeds of EUR 8.3 million and a realized profit in the amount of EUR 1.9 million or 16 cents earnings per share, Heliad is in a comfortable position for additional investments and exits in the coming quarters', says Christoph D.
