Luxembourg | 22 October 2013: Electrawinds SE provides a status update
about the capital re-inforcement plan:

> As announced on 23 April 2013, the Board of Directors decided to return
to the capital market and raise a substantial amount of equity.

> As announced on 2 July 2013, a conditional Memorandum of Understanding
('MoU') had been signed, in presence of the company, by certain of the
company's main shareholders and providers of subordinated debt to
Electrawinds NV (a wholly owned subsidiary of the company) that provided in
a plan for, amongst others, the raising of a substantial amount of new
equity with new and existing investors, the potential conversion into
equity of part of the existing debt of the group and the deleveraging of
the group.

> As communicated earlier in the past months, promising discussions have
been held with a number of new cornerstone investors in order to provide
the additional capital as contemplated in the MoU. So far, these
discussions have not resulted into a final commitment and discussions with
certain potential cornerstone investors have ended.

> In the meantime, discussions are being continued with other potential
investors. At the same time new discussions are being held with the main
shareholders, debt providers to the company and its subsidiary Electrawinds
NV concerning a less ambitious business plan requiring a significantly
lower amount of fresh money.

As soon as these discussions have been finalized the company will
communicate to the market.
