HELMA Eigenheimbau AG: Sustained sales success in the third quarter of 2009 underlines positive growth perspectives

Lehrte, October 8, 2009 - In the first nine months of the 2009 business year the HELMA Group sold a total of 391 houses (Q1-Q3 2008: 315 houses). The average net sales price rose from TEUR 166 to TEUR 167 over the prior year period, which results in a net order intake of EUR 65.4 million (Q1-Q3 2008: EUR 52.1 million). This equals a gain of 26 percent by comparison with last year.

After the end of the first three quarters it can already be stated that the HELMA Group, both in terms of order intake, as well as the volume of orders on the books, will generate record figures in the 2009 business year. These gratifying sales developments are especially connected with the completed nation-wide expansion activities, which have resulted in an increasing stabilization of the individual locations and subsequently generated considerable positive sales effects. In addition, it must be emphasized here that the enhanced awareness of the HELMA brand, as well as the increased sales strengths, also in the established areas, have generated gratifying growth rates.

The forecast for the upcoming 2010 business year stated in connection with the publication of the semi-annual report, which, among others, envisages considerable revenue increases to at least EUR 78 million, is thereby solidly underlined by the order gains in 2009.


NOTE CONCERNING THE PUBLICATION OF SALES FIGURES:

The sales figures for the first nine months of the 2009 business 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.
