quarterly report

Berlin, 7 November 2011 (euro adhoc) - The strategy of expansion rigorously
pursued in the first nine months of 2011 enabled the Hypoport Group to raise its
revenue by an impressive 31 per cent to EUR58.8 million. The Company also
increased its EBITDA by 13 per cent.  

A comparison between the first nine months of this year and the corresponding
period of 2010 clearly illustrates that the Hypoport Group generated
double-digit percentage growth in all its revenue and earnings figures. Chief
Executive Officer (CEO) Ronald Slabke commented: "What people are now looking
for from financial services more than ever before is safety, security,
transparency and, above all, impartial advice that takes a holistic view of
their needs. Our business models, our cutting-edge technology and the expert
advice provided by our inhouse sales professionals satisfy these client
preferences and explain the success of our organisation".

Revenue rose by 31 per cent to EUR58.8 million (Q1-Q3 2010: EUR44.9 million).
All business units contributed to this growth. Gross profit advanced by 19 per
cent to EUR32.2 million on the back of the significant expansion of market share
(Q1-Q3 2010: EUR27.1 million). Consequently, earnings before interest, tax,
depreciation and amortisation (EBITDA) grew by 13 per cent to EUR7.8 million
(Q1-Q3 2010: EUR6.9 million). 

The Financial Service Providers business unit benefited from benign economic
conditions and the considerable market reach of the Europace, Genopace and
Finmas marketplaces. Revenue growth was boosted by our Europace technology's
market penetration - which continued to make progress as a result of the capital
expenditure committed in recent years - and strong demand for real estate. The
Private Clients business unit continued to strengthen its regional footprint in
both branch-based and agent sales. This segment is expanding beyond its
traditional core competence of mortgage finance by generating substantial growth
from its business in insurance products. In the third quarter of this year the
Corporate Real Estate Clients business unit successfully closed the big-ticket
deals that it had announced in the previous quarter. By obtaining new funding
partners from the insurance industry it managed to further consolidate its
market leadership and improve the terms and conditions offered to its customers.
Institutional Clients - the smallest of the business units - also successfully
defended its position as market leader and, consequently, made a valuable
contribution to revenue growth. Slabke still expects to see a significant
double-digit increase in revenue and very little year-on-year change in net
profit for the year as a whole.
