Solar-Fabrik AG

EANS-Adhoc: Solar-Fabrik Aktiengesellschaft für Produktion und Vertrieb von solartechnischen Produkten
Solar-Fabrik AG acquires majority position in PV installer and thus reinforces its market presence in Europe.

  ad-hoc disclosure pursuant to section 15 of the WpHG transmitted by euro
  adhoc with the aim of a Europe-wide distribution. The issuer is solely
  responsible for the content of this announcement.

Solar-Fabrik AG (ISIN: DE0006614712) has signed a final agreement to acquire
50.01% of the shares of SolSystems Energy GmbH  (registered  under  HRB  Nr.
24510 in Augsburg, Germany) on August 1, 2011. This move  reinforces  Solar-
Fabrik´s market presence not only in Germany but also  and  particularly  in
the European Southeast.

SolSystems Energy GmbH (SSE) has its headquarters in  Stadtbergen,  Bavaria,
Germany, and develops and installs PV solar systems. The current  owners  of
the company are GCS Capital Management GmbH, Gundremmingen, Germany, and Pro
Cura Vermögensverwaltungs-  und  -treuhand  GmbH,  Augsburg,  Germany.  Both
owners have agreed to sell 50.01% of their shares to Solar-Fabrik AG  for  a
total of 400,000 euros, with additional 120,000 euros as  incentive  if  the
targets for 2011 are met.

With this move  the  board  of  Solar-Fabrik  AG  and  the  shareholders  of
SolSystems Energy GmbH envision to enhance their business prospects overall,
but particularly in cases when a close  cooperation  between  installer  and
manufacturer provides a key aspect for success. With that differentiator  in
mind  both  companies  are  particularly  oriented  towards   the   European
Southeast. The cooperation between the two companies has been proven  during
several PV projects built in 2010. All current shareholders  of  SSE  remain
engaged in the company and expect that the closer  cooperation  with  Solar-
Fabrik AG will generate faster growth.

Solar-Fabrik AG has shipped approximately 56 MWp during the first half  year
2011, representing yet another volume growth compared  to  first  half  2010
(approximately 52  MWp).  The  7%  increase  is  a  sign  of  Solar-Fabrik´s
excellent market position in Europe, especially in light of  the  reportedly
weak market. Solar-Fabrik therefore assumes that it has again  achieved  its
strategic goal of increasing their market share.
