Blaubeuren (euro adhoc) - Blaubeuren, August 14, 2012 - centrotherm
photovoltaics AG has succeeded in
seamlessly continuing its business operations during the current insolvency
protection proceedings. Despite the continued difficult market situation, new
orders in the Solar Cell & Module segment, in particular, underscore the
expertise of the leading technology and equipment supplier to the photovoltaic
sector. For example, one new Taiwanese customer ordered a package of key
equipment for diffusion and antireflective coating. A renowned Taiwanese
customer of many years' standing also ordered the c.FIRE, the new generation of
the established fast-firing furnace. centrotherm photovoltaics is a global
market leader in both diffusion and PECVD systems, and the company ranks second
in fast-firing furnaces.

Current projects have also been continued under the insolvency protection
arrangements. In the coming days, a further partial delivery of key equipment
for a 360 MW solar cell line will be made to a customer in China, a customer of
many years' standing. "The seamless continuation of operations, and the loyalty
of our customers and suppliers, are supporting our reorganization process, and
form an important foundation for centrotherm's future. Our aim is to further
strengthen our excellent market position and competitiveness," emphasized CEO
Robert M. Hartung.

centrotherm photovoltaics and its foreign subsidiaries continue to provide
system upgrades, replacement parts deliveries and services as previously.

centrotherm photovoltaics will present itself with its portfolio products and
services at the EU PVSEC, one of the leading international photovoltaic
industry trade fairs, which is to be held in Frankfurt am Main, Germany, at the
end of September. Further trade fair activities will also occur in Taiwan,
India and the MENA region in 2012.
