Klagenfurt, October 9, 2017. The interim financial statements of PV-Invest GmbH as of June 30, 2017 were published and continue the positive development of the previous year.

Already in the 2016 financial year, the contribution of KPV Solar to the PV-Invest Group and the issue of PV-Invest photovoltaic bonds led to a significant increase in corporate activities. All relevant key figures developed positively compared to the previous year. This expansion trend continued unabated in the first half of 2017.

As of June 30, 2017, the group balance sheet total was EUR 61 million. The operating performance of the PV-Invest Group grew by EUR 0.5 million compared to the first half of 2016. With an EBIT of EUR 1.2 million, a ratio of EBIT to operating performance of 28.2% was achieved. Equity (including subordinated liabilities) amounted to EUR 5.8 million as of the reporting date. The power plant portfolio of the entire group comprised PV power plants with a total output of 25.1 MW in 8 export markets at the end of the half-year.

The 2017 financial year started very successfully. In addition to the acquisition of another power plant in Slovenia the preparations for the expansion of our PV power plant in France were started. Further plants are in preparation. In Hungary, which is also a new export market, PV-Invest has started preparations for the construction of several photovoltaic power plants with a total output of 2.2 MW and has also laid the foundations for a public participation company.
