HELMA Eigenheimbau AG achieves highest new order intake in company's history of EUR 106.8 million in 2011 (+9.4%)

Lehrte, January 12, 2012 - HELMA Eigenheimbau AG, the specialist for individual solid construction houses and sustainable energy concepts, has brought its 2011 financial year to a successful conclusion in terms of sales, and reports a new record intake of new orders. For the first time in its more than 30-year history, the company has achieved a consolidated net new order intake (houses plus land) of significantly more than EUR 100 million. With a strong final quarter, the Group reported orders up by 9.4% for the full year, with net new order intake rising correspondingly from EUR 97.6 million to EUR 106.8 million. The company's continuous sales growth, which it has already been reporting for several years, was primarily attributable to its project business in 2011, as planned, where sales volumes more than doubled year-on-year.

The Management Board of HELMA Eigenheimbau AG is firmly convinced that it will continue this growth trend in the 2012 financial year due to the current market situation, as well as in view of its successful preparation of projects at its HELMA Wohnungsbau GmbH and HELMA Ferienimmobilien GmbH subsidiaries. Consequently, double-digit percentage growth in net new order intake is anticipated for the current 2012 financial year.
