HELMA Eigenheimbau AG publishes 2009 annual report
Lehrte, April 22, 2010 - HELMA Eigenheimbau AG, specialist for individual solid construction houses and sustainable energy concepts, has published its 2009 annual report today. The company achieved a marked earnings improvement in the reporting period. Along with the higher revenue level, this also particularly reflects the further improvements in cost efficiency that have been achieved. The company raised consolidated revenue (IFRS) by more than 10% to EUR 62.4 million, and posted earnings before interest and tax (EBIT) of EUR 1.1 million (2008: minus EUR 0.4 million). Consolidated earnings after tax improved by EUR 1.1 million to EUR 0.2 million. Earnings per share amounted to EUR 0.07 (2008: minus EUR 0.36). The earnings improvement achieved had an extremely positive impact on operating cash flow, which rose from minus EUR 2.9 million to EUR 3.0 million.
'The 2009 financial year was a highly successful one for us,' commented Karl-Heinz Maerzke, Management Board Chairman of HELMA Eigenheimbau AG, with a look to the results. 'With the turnaround that we have accomplished, and the strong sales results, we have even slightly exceeded our ambitious annual target in what remains a competitive market. We look forward to the future with great confidence in view of the continued sound sales figures, and the HELMA Group's positive overall trend,' Mr. Maerzke went on to comment.
