Blaubeuren/Ulm, July 12, 2012 - Today the District Court of Ulm approved the
application submitted by centrotherm photovoltaics AG to initiate insolvency
protection proceedings under its own administration (pursuant to the German Act
Relating to the Further Simplification of the Reorganization of Companies
[ESUG], and Section 270b of the German Insolvency Directive [InsO]). This ruling
now leaves the way free for the company to consistently pursue the
reorganization program that it has launched. The District Court of Ulm has also
authorized the company's own administration to contract insolvency liabilities.

As a consequence, the prerequisites have been created to allow suppliers and
customers to continue their business relationships with the centrotherm Group.
