Abstract / Description:Context: We found evidence for a sub-stellar companion around the K giant star HD 110014. This cool evolved star, with a spectral type K2III and an estimated mass between 1.9 and 2.4 Mo, is slightly metal rich with [Fe/H] = 0.19 and a rotational velocity V sin i = 2.0 km s-1. Aims: To search for extrasolar planets around intermediate-mass stars and to improve our knowledge of the nature of radial velocity variations shown by G and K giant stars. Methods: Based on radial velocity analysis, we found evidence for a substellar companion with a planetary mass and long orbital period. The Radial velocity variation of HD 110014 has been monitored from 2000 until 2007 with FEROS at 1.5 m ESO and at the 2.2 m MPG/ESO, HARPS at the 3.6 m ESO and Coralie at 1.2 m Leonard Euler swiss telescopes in La Silla observatory. The radial velocities were computed by using a cross-correlation technique. Line bisector, Hipparcos photometry and chromospheric lines were analyzed to exclude other root-causes for the radial velocity variability. Results: We report the presence of an extrasolar planet around the giant star HD 110014, with an orbital period of 835.48 ± 6.04 days. A Keplerian orbit, with an eccentricity e = 0.462± 0.069, yields a minimum mass M sin i = 11.09 MJup. The analysis of the residuals shows evidence for a second RV variability with a period of 130 days and an amplitude of ±100 ms-1 . Its nature is not completely clear, but a second planet is a possible explanation. Based on observations collected at the 1.52-m ESO telescope (1999 to 2002), at the 2.2-m MPG/ESO telescope (2003 to 2007), at the 3.60 ESO telescope and at the Euler swiss telescope, at the La Silla Observatory, Chile.
