annual report


Cologne, 26th February 2006. VIVACON AG (ISIN DE0006048911) today
announced preliminary full-year results for 2006, which are subject
to the final auditors’ report and to its approval by the supervisory

In 2006, VIVACON sold apartments valued at a total of EUR 571m, which
is an increase of 55% on the EUR 368m achieved in the previous year.
In total 12,946 units were sold in 2006, which represents an increase
of 53% year-on-year. The majority of the transactions were disposals
of individual asset-holding companies, so called "share deals". As in
such "share deals" only the realised margin is recognised as revenue,
rather than the total value of the real estate portfolio sold
(transaction volume), stated revenues are significantly lower than
transaction volume. In 2006, group revenues reached EUR 122m,
compared to EUR 55m in the year before (+122%).

EBIT increased to EUR 79m (+110%) from EUR 37.4m in the previous
year. All costs incurred by VIVACON AG relating to the postponed IPO
of Vivacon German Properties PLC, amounting to EUR 4.0m, are fully
reflected in this figure. Group net income improved to EUR 44m (+95%)
from EUR 22.6m in 2005. Earnings per share increased to EUR 2.28
(+77%) following EUR 1.29 in the previous year.

The aforementioned results reflect an adjustment in accounting and
valuation methods as against the previous year, which is described in
detail in the additional clarification.

Outlook: In 2007, VIVACON AG expects strong growth in all business
areas. Internal operating structures as well as the overall number of
employees (+48% in 2006) have been developed accordingly. As a result
of the continuing very positive market environment as well as the
outstanding growth prospects of the Company, VIVACON expects an
increase in net income to EUR 54-58m and in EPS to EUR 2.80-3.00 in
2007. The Company plans for the first time to propose the payment of
a dividend amounting to EUR 0.40 per share in respect of 2006 at the
Annual General Meeting.

Additional clarification of the change in accounting policy and
valuation methods in 2006

Up to and including 2005, the Company accounted for revenue
recognition of production orders in the landmark and design business
unit according to the IAS 11 percentage of completion method. Given
the recent discussions of the IFRIC, so-called "pre-completion real
estate sales" will, in the Company’s view, no longer fall under IAS
11 but under IAS 18. Accordingly, corresponding orders have been
reflected according to IAS 18 as of 2006. In order to facilitate
comparison, the figures for 2005 have been adjusted accordingly. This
change from IAS 11 to IAS 18 leads to a reduction in revenues of EUR
7.9m (2005) and EUR 14.3m (2006), a reduction in EBIT of EUR 2.3m
(2005) and EUR 4.0m (2006) as well as a reduction in net income of
EUR 1.4m (2005) and EUR 2.4m (2006). The result is a periodic shift
of revenues and earnings to 2007 and the following years.

In 2005, the Company sold a real estate portfolio to an institutional
investor which had been sold in 2004 and subsequently bought back in
2005. This transaction was accounted for in revenues and material
expenses according to the legal facts. However, in order to better
reflect the economic circumstances, it was decided as part of the
adjustment of the previous year’s figures to reflect this transaction
as if the Company had acted as an intermediary. Material expenses -
because of the repurchase - as well as the corresponding revenues -
because of the resale - have therefore been eliminated. The
adjustment results solely in a change in revenues (a reduction of EUR
22.4m), but not in any change in the transaction volume or earnings
shown in the annual accounts for 2005.

Furthermore, as a result of the ongoing high volatility of VIVACON AG
shares, the Company has changed the method used for calculating the
costs of the stock option programme. The change affects mainly the
implied volatility in the context of stock option programme
valuation. By contrast to the previous year, the Company now takes
into account only the actual long-term historic market volatility of
VIVACON AG shares. In the previous year, the volatility of comparable
companies was also taken into consideration. This results in an
increase of the volatility of VIVACON shares used in the calculation
from 26.9% p.a. to 45% p.a. in 2005. The change results in an
increase in personnel expenses of EUR 0.6m in 2005.
