Blaubeuren, June 13, 2012 - Due to the continued poor market environment, and
the resultant strained financing situation, merchandise credit insurance
companies have today informed centrotherm photovoltaics AG that they will no
longer insure merchandise deliveries to the centrotherm photovoltaics Group.
Based on this information, the Management Board anticipates a negative
liquidity effect in a low double-digit amount in millions of euros.

In coordination with its banks, centrotherm photovoltaics AG has mandated a
renowned management consultancy company to prepare a reorganization report that
is to form the basis for further discussions with banks to secure the Group's
financing. Until further notice, open credit and guarantee lines can no longer
be utilized given current financing discussions with banks.
