Lehrte, April 13, 2015 - HELMA Eigenheimbau AG, specialist for individual solid construction houses and sustainable energy concepts, has today published its 2014 annual report in which it confirms the record results that it announced in a corporate news release on March 4, 2015.

Planned EUR 0.63 per share dividend:

Based on a continued positive business trend during 2014, HELMA Eigenheimbau AG is planning to increase its dividend by around 19 % to EUR 0.63 per share. After approving the separate annual financial statements of HELMA Eigenheimbau AG as of December 31, 2014, and the consolidated financial statements as of December 31, 2014, the Supervisory Board at its meeting on March 30, 2015 gave its assent to the proposal recommended by the Management Board that the Shareholders' General Meeting to be held on July 3, 2015, approve payment of a EUR 0.63 dividend per share (previous year: EUR 0.53). As in the previous year, this would entail the retention of around 65 % of the net income of HELMA Eigenheimbau AG (as per German Commercial Code accounting) to further strengthen the equity base.

Strong new order intake in Q1 2015:

The HELMA Group has also made a very good start to the current year. Driven by continued high demand for HELMA's owner-occupier homes, net new order intake in the first quarter 2015 was up by 24 % to reach EUR 48.1 million (Q1 2014: EUR 38.8 million). The Management Board of HELMA Eigenheimbau AG firmly assumes that significant growth in new orders at a double-digit percentage growth rate can be achieved on a full-year view, thereby successfully forming the basis for its budgeted further revenue and earnings growth over the coming year.
