Restructuring & Recapitalisations
14.12.2012 
Konstanz/Germany, 14 December 2012 - Sunways Production GmbH, a wholly-owned
subsidiary of Sunways AG (ISIN DE0007332207 / WKN 733220), operates a plant for
the production and development of solar cells in Arnstadt. Due to the current
economic situation in the solar industry, Sunways Production GmbH is presently
not in a position to operate profitably. Therefore, the Management Board, with
the consent of the Supervisory Board, today decided to significantly reduce the
production and development activities of Sunways Production GmbH until at least
a breakeven situation can be achieved again. With the restructuring measures it
is intended to reduce the current workforce of 120 by approx. 50 % at Sunways
Production GmbH.  
Furthermore, the Management Board, with the consent of the Supervisory Board,
decided today to also reduce the number of employees across all locations at
Sunways AG as well as to restructure production to accommodate the present
market environment.  
According to the Management Board's current plans, the aggregate number of 265
employees of the Sunways Group might be reduced by a total of 40 %. Relevant
talks will be initiated shortly with the works councils of Sunways AG in
Konstanz and Sunways Production GmbH in Arnstadt.
