Financial Figures/Balance Sheet


Berlin, (euro adhoc) - 8 August 2011: Growth, new all-time records, and the
1,000 or so specialists operating as independent financial product distributors
in the first half of this year mean that the Hypoport Group is well equipped for
the coming months. The Company generated first-half revenue of EUR35.8 million,
which represents a year-on-year increase of 28 per cent on the first six months
of 2010 (revenue for H1 2010: EUR28 million). Earnings before interest, tax,
depreciation and amortisation (EBITDA) rose by 17 per cent year on year to
EUR3.9 million (EBITDA for H1 2010: EUR3.3 million). 

"The fact that we have continued to grow under our own steam despite weak market
stimulus reaffirms that Hypoport is the financial services model of the future,"
stressed Ronald Slabke, the Company's Chief Executive Officer. "We are well
equipped for the months and years ahead. Hypoport is now one of the very few
truly independent financial service providers left, while many others have been
bought up by banks and insurers."

More than 1,000 specialists operating as independent financial product
distributors
The Hypoport Group is continuing to expand its distribution network in its
Private Clients business unit. Dr. Klein now has 586 specialists who provide
clients with personal financial advice in their own locality. Including the
other permanent staff working throughout the Group, Hypoport therefore has a
total workforce of more than 1,000 committed professionals offering independent
financial advice. The EUROPACE financial marketplace achieved its best-ever
quarterly result in Q2, generating a total transaction volume of EUR4.64 billion
and beating the previous record that it had set in the third quarter of 2010 by
3.4 per cent. The Company supported this trend by continuing to invest heavily
in EUROPACE 2, its next-generation transaction platform. Our corporate and
institutional customers have also shown considerable interest in our advisory
services, as indicated by the business enquiries already received by our
Corporate Real Estate Clients and Institutional Clients business units for the
coming months.
