HELMA Eigenheimbau AG achieves renewed order intake record in FY 2012 of EUR131.4 million (+23%)

Lehrte, January 14, 2013 - HELMA Eigenheimbau AG, the specialist for individual solid construction houses and sustainable energy concepts, grew its net new order intake in the 2012 financial year by EUR24.6 million year-on-year to reach EUR131.4 million (previous year: EUR106.8 million). This corresponds to 23 percent growth, more than twice as high as the order intake growth of at least 10 percent that was planned for 2012, which was announced in Q1 2012. The order intake result achieved in 2012 provides the HELMA Group with a very solid basis to once again generate significant revenue and earnings growth in 2013.

All business areas within the HELMA Group contributed to this sixth consecutive new order intake record. Both HELMA Eigenheimbau AG (construction services) and the HELMA Wohnungsbau GmbH and HELMA Ferienimmobilien GmbH subsidiaries which operate in the property development business reported marked growth rates. Due to the continued good economic environment for the owner-occupier homebuilding sector, and the large number of pre-developed and attractive property development projects, the Management Board of HELMA Eigenheimbau AG expects further growth in new orders to continue in the current 2013 financial year, driven by all business areas.

Note concerning the Publication of Order Intake Figures

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