The market valuation of the hedging instruments (inflation and interest swaps) influenced the quarterly EBT positively by an amount of EUR 0.6m (Q2 2007: EUR +2.9m). Net income amounted to EUR 5.8m following EUR 11.7m in Q2 2007.

Vivacon acquired a number of ground lease portfolios in several transactions with an annual ground lease cash flow of approximately EUR 2.0m. In a portfolio transaction, another ground lease cash flow in the amount of EUR 0.86m was generated. The amount of initial annual ground lease cash flows amounts to approximately EUR 16.2m as at June 30th (30.06.2007: EUR 10.7m), of which 40% were generated in direct ground lease cash flow acquisitions.

The further acquisition of ground lease portfolios is a central focus of operating activities. Vivacon plans to acquire annual ground lease cash flows of up to EUR 10m in the current year and expects to achieve its full year guidance even without further significant portfolio trading activities. The management confirms its communicated full year net income guidance of EUR 60m.
