WACKER RESTRUCTURES CONTRACTUAL RELATIONSHIP WITH ONE OF ITS SOLAR-SILICON
CUSTOMERS

Munich, January 28, 2014 - Wacker Chemie AG has restructured its
contractual and delivery relationships with one of its solar-silicon
customers. The two companies signed the relevant agreements today. WACKER
will continue supplying this customer with hyperpure polysilicon for solar
cells, albeit under different conditions than previously agreed. The
adjustments made include delivery volumes and prices. Due to the new
provisions, WACKER will recognize special income from retained advance
payments and from damages in its financial statements for the first quarter
of 2014. WACKER's first-quarter EBIT (earnings before interest and taxes)
is expected to increase by about EUR115 million as a result. For
competitive reasons, WACKER has agreed that it will not disclose the
customer's name and will keep the details of the new provisions
confidential.
