as of 12 April, the voluntary public takeover offer submitted by LDK Solar
Germany Holding GmbH was accepted with respect to a total of 6,527,282 non-par
value shares to bearer in Sunways AG. Previously, the LDK Solar Group had

As the world's largest fully integrated manufacturer of silicon, wafers, solar
cells and solar modules, LDK Solar has supplied raw materials to Sunways AG for
many years and, moreover, entered into a cooperation arrangement with the
company for the production of Sunways solar modules in 2009.
