6-month report


Cologne, 13th August 2007. In Q2 2007, VIVACON AG (ISIN DE0006048911) sold a total of 6,362 residential and commercial units (Q2 2006: 2,504). The Company grew its transaction volume by 128% to EUR 262.6m in Q2 2007 in comparison to EUR 115.2m in the same period of the previous year. In contrast to Q2 2006, all portfolio transactions in 2007 were structured as "share deals" which means that only the realized margin is recognized as revenue. Therefore, revenues in Q2 2007 of EUR 33.0m are below the previous year figure of EUR 39.3m. Absolute earnings margins are not affected by these different accounting treatments. Thus EBIT increased to EUR 12.7m in Q2 2007 against EUR 11.3m in the same period of previous year. In Q2 2007, EBT increased by 65% to EUR 15.0m (Q2 2006: EUR 9.1m) and net income reached EUR 11.7m in the second quarter of the current year in comparison to EUR 6.5m in Q2 2006, which represents an increase of 80%.

Earnings per share (undiluted) amounted to EUR 0.60 in Q2 2007 in comparison to EUR 0.34 in Q2 2006. End of June 2007, the order backlog reached EUR 122.9m, which is an increase of 55% against the EUR 79.4m at the end of June 2006.

As VIVACON AG already had a positive Q1 result, total H1 results developed quite satisfactorily accordingly. The total number of residential and commercial units sold amounted to 7,468 units (H1 2006: 2,546 units). Transaction volume grew by 158% to EUR 328.4m (H1 2006: EUR 127.1m) and revenues reached EUR 57.5m in comparison to EUR 48.7m in H1 2006. EBIT improved by 91% to EUR 18.9m (H1 2006: EUR 9.9m), EBT increased by 315%  to EUR 21.6m (H1 2006: EUR 5.2m) und net income grew by 295% to EUR 15.0m in H1 2007 in comparison to EUR 3.8m in H1 2006. Earnings per share (undiluted) amounted to EUR 0.77 in comparison to EUR 0.20 in the same period of the previous year.

The total number of residential units currently owned by VIVACON AG amount to some 8,500 units. Management reiterates its previously announced full-year guidance of a net income in the amount of EUR 54-58m and an EPS of EUR 2.80-3.00 for 2007.
