    SMA Solar Technology AG Meets Sales and Earnings Guidance for 2018

    SMA Solar Technology AG sold PV inverters with a total output of around 8.5GW. Inverter output sold in the past fiscal year was thus on a par with the previous year (2017: 8.5GW). As a result of increased price pressure, however, sales fell to around €761 million (2017: €891 million) according to preliminary calculations by the SMA Managing Board and are therefore at the lower end of the Managing Board's guidance. The expected earnings before interest, taxes, depreciation and amortization (EBITDA) of around −€67 million (2017: €97.3 million) are impacted by one-time items as well as provisions for financing the planned restructuring measures and are within the Managing Board's guidance. Depreciation and amortization are expected to amount to more than €80 million. For the 2019 fiscal year, the SMA Managing Board is expecting sales to increase to between €800 million and €880 million and positive EBITDA of between €20 million and €50 million.
