Financial Figures/Balance Sheet

Berlin, 5 March 2012 (euro adhoc) - The Hypoport Group raised its revenue by 26
per cent to approximately EUR84 million in 2011, carving out a distinctive
position for itself in the marketplace. The Financial Service Providers and
Private Clients business units significantly expanded their market share, while
the Corporate Real Estate Clients unit managed to build on the outstanding
record level of revenue that it had reported for 2010. Earnings before interest,
tax, depreciation and amortisation (EBITDA) replicated its prior-year all-time
high, reaching EUR11 million.  

The Hypoport Group's strong operating performance in 2011 was boosted by growing
demand for real estate and the increasing importance of one-stop advisory
solutions around loans, investments and insurance. The considerable demand for
real estate drove broad-based growth, especially during the second half of the
year. The Private Clients business unit achieved above-average year-on-year
increases even in a stagnant market for insurance and investments. Consequently,
the Hypoport Group's total revenue rose by 26 per cent to EUR84.5 million (2010:
EUR66.9 million). Whereas customer demand benefited - in the form of attractive
borrowing terms - from the crises affecting financial markets, the euro and the
banks, the extraordinary level of diversification among product suppliers that
has existed since the outbreak of the financial crisis put downward pressure on
margins. Against this backdrop, with an EBITDA of EUR11.1 million in 2011 the
Company managed to reach the record EBITDA figure of EUR11.1 million achieved in
2010. "In an environment that continues to be characterised by severe turmoil
and considerable unpredictability, Hypoport has once again excelled by
generating consistent and profitable growth in 2011", commented Ronald Slabke,
the Chief Executive Officer of Hypoport AG. His forecast: "Assuming that market
conditions remain more or less unchanged, we again expect to report double-digit
revenue growth and a year-on-year improvement in earnings for 2012."
