The sale of Conergy Wind GmbH cannot be realized as planned

Hamburg, 16 October 2008: The sale of the business of Conergy Wind GmbH, which had been agreed upon between Conergy AG and the private equity investor Warburg Pincus and announced on 9 September 2008, cannot be realized as planned. The transaction was subject to several closing conditions which were all complied with apart from one. One of the closing conditions was the transfer of public grants of up to EUR 3.5m advised and partially granted by the federal state of Bremen for the local production site of Conergy Wind GmbH. That transfer of the public grants to the purchaser was now surprisingly rejected by the responsible authority. Therefore, Conergy AG and Warburg Pincus are no longer bound to the original contract.

In the interest of the business unit, Conergy is still looking to find a short-term solution and assumes that this will economically be in accordance with the current plans- even in case of the liquidation of Conergy Wind GmbH.
