3-month report

Freiburg (euro adhoc) - In the first quarter of 2012 Solar-Fabrik AG (ISIN:
DE0006614712) reached a revenue of ca. 19.1 million euros (Q1 2011: 36.9 million
euros), of which ca. 1.5 million euros (2011: 0 million euros) resulted from the
sale of a solar park in the new Installation business. The revenue decrease is
predominantly price driven, whereas the price erosion is mostly provoked by the
most recent changes of the German feed-in-tariff (FIT) regulation. Concurrently
the company was able to improve the gross margin from 12.4 percent in Q1 2011 to
ca. 18.1 percent in Q1 2012. This lead to a Q1 2012 EBIT of 1.5 million euros
(Q1 2011: -0.4 million euros) and a net result of 1.3 million euros (Q1 2011:
-0.9 million euros).

In the beginning of 2012 the political discussions about the feed-in tariff and
the cost of renewable energy dominated the business environment. While January
and February were mostly export driven the German demand recovered in March
driven by pull-in effects from the mid February discussion about additional FIT

The quarterly financials for the period from January 1 through March 31, 2012,
is available on the company homepage.
