HELMA Eigenheimbau AG reports new order intake growth in Q1 2012

 

Lehrte, April 13, 2012 - HELMA Eigenheimbau AG, the specialist for individual solid construction homes and sustainable energy concepts, reports on a successful start to its 2012 financial year. The very good sales result that the company achieved in the first quarter of the previous year was exceeded by a further five percent in the first three months of the current financial year.

Group net order intake (houses and land) amounted to EUR 30.5 million (Q1 2011: EUR 29.0 million), representing a good starting point for the new order intake growth that the company is targeting in its 2012 financial year. The Group expects sales to be up by a double-digit percentage rate on a full-year view, which would equal an increase in net new order intake from EUR 106.8 million to at least EUR 117.5 million.

'For the first time, these sales figures also include two of our energy-independent houses,' as Karl-Heinz Maerzke, CEO of HELMA Eigenheimbau AG, reports with satisfaction. 'We are very pleased that we will now be building two examples of our innovative concept for our customers, which we presented to the public as a showhouse in Lehrte in May 2011, and which won the German Solar Prize badge. Consequently, the first two families in Germany will be fully independent of external energy providers in the future, both in terms of heating and electricity, thanks to a HELMA solid-construction home, and without entailing any compromises with regard to home comforts,' Maerzke went on to comment.

The sales figures for the first three months of the 2012 financial year presented above already include all cancellations received until the day preceding the publication of this announcement. The previous year's figures are based on the same reporting date in order to allow optimal comparability.
