S.A.G. Solarstrom AG: Current project situation and market environment
require revision of forecast

Freiburg i. Br., November 29, 2013. S.A.G. Solarstrom AG (German security
identification number: 702 100, ISIN: DE0007021008), Freiburg i. Br., needs
to revise its earnings expectations for business year 2013 in view of the
current project situation and the market environment. The company had most
recently confirmed the forecast with an installation and sales volume of
more than 117 MWp and a positive operating result in the Corporate News of
November 7, 2013. The confirmation of the forecast was based on a project
pipeline in the three-digit MWp range for 2013 and 2014, according to which
contract negotiations for a significant volume are already at an advanced
stage with an international energy operator. However, the projects planned
for 2013 have been further delayed to such an extent that the communicated
installation and sales volume, and thus the earnings target, can no longer
be achieved within the remaining time to the end of the year.

In view of the industry situation in Europe, which is marked by a slump in
the market of over 50 %, the installation volume of these projects cannot
be compensated for by other projects by the end of the year.

S.A.G. Solarstrom AG is now anticipating that the installation and sales
volumes will fall significantly below the planned targets in business year
2013, and that the operating result (EBIT) will be negative.
