Blaubeuren (euro adhoc) - August 24, 2011 - centrotherm photovoltaics AG, the
globally leading provider of technology and equipment to the photovoltaics
sector, will bundle its Solar Cell & Module segment within a wholly-owned
subsidiary in future. This forms part of the consistent strategic further
development of the existing Group structure. "We are convinced that with this
market-oriented organization that is strongly geared to implementation, we have
created an excellent basis for further profitable growth, innovative strength,
and the extension of our technology-leadership," commented Robert M. Hartung,
CEO and Management Board Spokesman of centrotherm photovoltaics AG.

With effect as of September 1, centrotherm cell & module GmbH will take over
the operating activities of the Solar Cell & Module segment, which has been
established within centrotherm photovoltaics AG to date. The segment's assets,
processes and staff that are essential to its operating activities will be
transferred to the new company as a consequence. This organizational step has
no effect on centrotherm photovoltaics´ production units and sites.

Dr. Josef Haase (CEO) and Olaf Demuth (CFO) will manage centrotherm cell &
module GmbH, which is to be based at Blaubeuren. "Our customers will benefit to
an even greater extent from our proximity to them, as well as our individual
project processing and customer care that is more strongly oriented to the
development of solutions," commented Dr. Haase. "As a technology leader, we are
constantly endeavoring to further expand our innovation leadership for high-
performance cells and modules. We support our customers in optimizing their
integration along the solar value chain in this context, in order to boost
their competitiveness and strengthen their cost-leadership."
