Consus Real Estate AG: S&P outlook revised to positive on new minority shareholding of ADO Properties; 'B' affirmed.

Consus Real Estate AG ("CONSUS"): S&P Global Ratings (S&P), today announced an upgrade of CONSUS' rating outlook from 'stable' to 'positive', and affirmed the 'B' rating for the company and 'B-' for the secured notes.

The positive outlook reflects S&P's view that CONSUS' creditworthiness could improve if ADO Properties S.A. ("ADO") acquires another 51% of Consus' share capital via its call option and takes control of the company within the next 18 months. (the maximum timeframe to exercise the call option).

In addition, S&P states in its rating report that CONSUS could benefit from extraordinary support from the combined entity upon the execution of the call option for a 51% stake, assuming CONSUS successful integration with ADO. The positive outlook indicates that S&P could raise its ratings on CONSUS by up to four notches if ADO were to exercise its call option and take a controlling stake in Consus.

HELMA Eigenheimbau: Klarer Kauf

Die HELMA Eigenheimbau hat mit dem Zugang weiterer Ferienimmobilienprojekte das potenzielle Umsatzvolumen um 150 Mio. € gesteigert. Ohnehin verfügt die Gesellschaft über einen umfangreichen Grundstücksbestand für das Bauträgergeschäft, womit in den kommenden Geschäftsjahren Umsätze in Höhe von über 1,4 Mrd. € realisiert werden könnten. Damit dürften unsere Schätzungen, in denen wir ein nachhaltiges Überschreiten der Umsatzmarke von 300 Mio. € annehmen, gut unterfüttert sein. Bei einem Kursziel von 65,00 € ist die HELMA-Aktie ein klarer Kauf.
