HELMA Eigenheimbau AG publishes sales figures for the first nine months of the 2011 financial year

Lehrte, October 12, 2011 - HELMA Eigenheimbau AG, the specialist for individual solid construction houses and sustainable energy concepts, reports an increase in consolidated net new order intake (houses and land) to EUR 74.4 million in the first nine months of the 2011 financial year, compared with EUR 69.9 million in the comparable prior-year period, representing a 6.4 percent sales increase.

The Management Board of HELMA Eigenheimbau AG is assuming that the last three months of the 2011 financial year will comprise an extremely strong final quarter in terms of sales, as in the previous year. The new projects of HELMA Wohnungsbau GmbH in Berlin, Hamburg and Munich, which were announced in September 2011 as part of significant land purchases, will already make a tangible contribution to this outcome. The company is also assuming additional drivers to significant sales growth to arise from the holiday property project at Glowe on the island of Rügen, which has already made a successful start.

As a consequence, the HELMA Group anticipates total net new order intake of around EUR 30.0 million for the October to December 2011 period. This would imply that the Group would achieve, as planned, a net new order intake in the triple-digit million euro region on a full-year basis, which would create a solid basis for the company's aim of achieving further revenue and earnings growth in 2012.
