lectrawinds achieves important milestones in the realization of its
revised business plan

Luxembourg | 14 October 2013: Electrawinds SE reports on several actions
that have been concluded and which are in line with earlier announcements:

) Divestment non-core assets: Electrawinds has sold the wholly-owned
subsidiaries Electrawinds Solar NV and Zon aan Zee NV to Inframan NV (the
infrastructure joint venture between Gimv and Belfius and manager of the
unlisted DG Infra funds) for an enterprise value of EUR19.1m, including
earn-outs. Both subsidiaries operate in total 23 solar projects in Flanders
(Belgium) with a total capacity of 6.68MWp and generate EUR2.0-2.5m EBITDA
per year. Electrawinds will apply the proceeds from this divestment to
reduce indebtedness at the holding level and for its ongoing operations.

) Strategic partnership for the 2nd generation biodiesel activities:
Electrawinds has co-founded the Joint Venture AD Biodiesel SAS for the
sourcing, production and marketing of 2nd generation biodiesel based on
waste products (animal fats and used cooking oils). Electrawinds owns 20%,
alongside key industry players Sofiproteol/Diester (60%), Akiolis (10%,
part of Tessenderlo group) and Mindest (10%). Upon finalization of some
formal steps, AD Biodiesel SAS starts operations today. This partnership is
expected to bring a positive and stable EBITDA contribution going forward.

) Ongoing cost reduction: In line with the strategic refocus, Electrawinds
has well advanced in reducing the cost basis of the DCPM-Segment
Development, Construction & Portfolio Management activities).

The Company continues to progress with several potential new cornerstone
investors, its main shareholders and providers of subordinated debt to its
wholly-owned subsidiary Electrawinds NV in order to significantly reinforce
its capital base. More information will be communicated in the course of Q4
2013.
