SINGULUS TECHNOLOGIES reports on a successful 28th EU PVSEC solar industry
exhibition in Paris
  - Spotlight was on innovative plant engineering

  - Numerous project discussions for PERC upgrade and CIGS thin-film solar
    technology

Kahl am Main, October 08, 2013 - SINGULUS TECHNOLOGIES AG (SINGULUS) is
able to look back on a successful 28th European Photovoltaic Solar Energy
Conference and Exhibition (28th EU PVSEC), which took place in Paris from
October 1 to 3.

The spotlight was on the two machines for the photovoltaic industry
exhibited on the SINGULUS show stand: the vacuum coating machine SINGULAR
XP, a production solution for the new passivated rear silicon solar cells
(PERC; passivated emitter and rear cell). This solution was developed
specifically for retrofitting to existing cell production lines. It can
boost the efficiency of silicon solar cells to a figure of more than 20 %.
Dr. Ing. Stefan Rinck, CEO of SINGULUS TECHNOLOGIES AG, remarked: 'The
vacuum coating machine Singular XP is highly innovative and has a small
footprint. On September 12, we were able to conclude a general agreement
for 16 lines with M Cells.'  Dr.-Ing. Stefan Rinck continued: 'The high
level of interest at the EU PVSEC shows we are offering precisely the
manufacturing technology that the market wants.'

SINGULUS also unveiled a development system in the TENUIS range; this can
be used to develop and investigate alternative coating materials for CIGS
thin-film solar cells. The new generation of TENIUS machines brings
significant cost savings for the manufacture of high-performance CIS/CIGS
thin-film solar cells. The new machine realizes high potential for savings
in the manufacturing of thin-film solar cells.

For both areas of activity, i.e. for both crystalline solar cells and
thin-film solar technology, a great many projects were discussed and
preparations were already made for a number of agreements, which in
totality give rise to hopes that the market situation in the photovoltaic
sector is set to improve.

Innovative topics and concepts for improving efficiency and reducing costs
were presented at the 28th EU PVSEC conference. The latest market figures
were also released, indicating a continuing revival in the international PV
market to more than 50 GW in 2015.

Profile SINGULUS TECHNOLOGIES:
SINGULUS TECHNOLOGIES develops innovative technologies for efficient
production processes, which only make use of resources conservatively. New
production technology combined with sustainable processes and the use of
novel materials can decouple the use of resources from economic growth in
the long-term. SINGULUS TECHNOLOGIES' innovative power and competitiveness
are strengthened by these new technological developments.

With its Optical Disc segment SINGULUS TECHNOLOGIES is the world market
leader for CD, DVD and Blu-ray Disc production equipment.  SINGULUS
TECHNOLOGIES is the only engineering company worldwide currently able to
provide the machine technology for three-layer Blu-ray Discs with a storage
volume of about 100 GB.

In the Solar division SINGULUS TECHNOLOGIES is a recognized supplier of new
machinery concepts and production processes for crystalline and thin-film
solar cells, which increase the efficiency of solar cells and reduce their
production costs. SINGULUS TECHNOLOGIES IS establishing itself as a
development partner and machinery supplier for technologies enabling a
sustainable energy provision on the basis of renewable energies.

In the Semiconductor segment SINGULUS TECHNOLOGIES focuses its activities
on the vacuum coating of wafers with ultra thin layers for the production
of MRAM memory, thin-film write/read heads and other semiconductor
applications.
