    Sunways Reports the Third Quarter 2012 Results

    Business operations of Sunways AG in the third quarter of 2012 were impacted by the situation in the markets, such as the continuously prevailing global oversupply of components for solar systems, as well as by economic framework conditions, mainly the Euro crisis. The demand for photovoltaic products and solutions decreased significantly in the third quarter. In Germany, the amendment to the Renewable Energies Act (EEG) adopted with retroactive effect led to a marked decline in new system installations. Demand in Italy also declined when the Conto Energia 5 came into force. In addition, from July through September liquidity pressures experienced by many companies in Germany and abroad resulted in a high supply level in the markets and, correspondingly, strong pressure on prices. "At the current level, manufacturers, in particular those from Europe, are hardly able to charge cost-covering prices", says Michael Wilhelm, Chairman of the Management Board of photovoltaics specialist Sunways.
