Hamburg (euro adhoc) - Hamburg, August 12, 2011. The REpower Systems Group (WKN
617703)  increased  its
sales by approx. 23% to EUR 262.5 million (previous year: EUR 213.1 million)  in
the first quarter of the 2011/12 fiscal year (April 1 to June 30,  2011).  Total
performance grew by nearly 22% from EUR 204.0  million  to  EUR  248.3  million.
EBIT was EUR 10.0 million (Q1 2010/11: EUR 1.5  million)  in  the  period  under
review. After offsetting interest  and  other  financing  income  and  expenses,
earnings before tax amounted to EUR 7.6 million (Q1 2010/11: EUR  3.2  million).
In the period under review, REpower generated net earnings of EUR  4.2  million,
following EUR 1.8 million in Q1 2010/11.

In the first three months  of  the  2011/12  fiscal  year,  REpower  Systems  SE
installed or supplied wind turbines with  a  total  capacity  of  195  megawatts
(MW). This represents an increase of about 15% compared with the  first  quarter
of 2010/11 (169 MW). A large part of the capacity is attributed to  the  Ormonde
project, off the British coast. Construction of the 30  turbines  was  completed
in early August, three weeks ahead of schedule. Andreas Nauen,  CEO  of  REpower
Systems SE, is pleased with the  progress:  "Ormonde  has  helped  us  show  the
market that we are able to accomplish large offshore projects."

Incoming orders in the period under review were EUR 218 million, down  from  EUR
323 million in the first quarter of 2010/11. Contractually secured order  volume
as at June 30, 2011 was approx. EUR 2.61 billion. This  represents  an  increase
of about  8%  compared  with  the  previous  year´s  reporting  date  (EUR  2.42
billion).

REpower confirms its forecast for significant sales and earnings growth  in  the
2011/12 fiscal year.
