HELMA Eigenheimbau AG reports strong order intake in H1 2013 / Management Board contract of CFO Gerrit Janssen undergoes early extension until June 30, 2019

Lehrte, July 15, 2013 - HELMA Eigenheimbau AG, the specialist for individual solid-construction homes and sustainable energy concepts, has successfully continued the dynamic order growth of the past years into the first half of the 2013 financial year. In the first six months of the current financial year, net new order intake was up by 24 percent compared with the same period of the previous year to reach EUR 71.7 million (H1 2012: EUR 58.0 million). All HELMA Group companies contributed to this marked order growth.

The aforementioned order intake figures exclusively comprise orders from private customers. The new and additional business area of the HELMA Wohnungsbau GmbH subsidiary, which comprises the planning and realisation of residential real estate projects intended for sale to institutional investors, will in all probability make tangible contributions to net new order intake from the second half of 2013, as already announced in April 2013. As a consequence, the Management Board of HELMA Eigenheimbau AG is assuming that the HELMA Group will also generate significant new order intake growth on a full-year view, thereby already securing the basis for further revenue growth in the 2014 financial year, as announced.

Moreover, the company's Management Board also anticipates sustainable revenue and earnings growth for the subsequent years - especially through the constant business expansion of the subsidiaries HELMA Wohnungsbau GmbH and HELMA Ferienimmobilien GmbH. The company plans to issue a corporate bond in the second half of 2013 to finance some of this organic growth in future years.

The half-yearly report of HELMA Eigenheimbau AG will be published on the Internet at on August 26, 2013.
