Insolvency proceedings initiated for Solar Millennium AG

Erlangen, 28 February 2012 - The Amtsgericht [Local Court of] Fürth initiated the insolvency proceedings for Solar Millennium AG on Tuesday. The court appointed Volker Böhm, lawyer from Nuremberg, as insolvency administrator. He had already been appointed interim insolvency administrator last December. Upon the initiation of insolvency proceedings, Mr. Böhm assumes power of administration and disposal from the former Company organs.

The search for investors for the Company will continue. The insolvency administrator still sees takeover opportunities for the Flagsol GmbH subsidiary in Cologne and some of the Spanish power plant projects, particularly Arenales. Apparently investors are also interested in taking over Solar Millennium AG as a whole, although the prospects of success are highly uncertain in this respect. Therefore, the Company's remaining staff of about 40 received a notice of termination on Tuesday.

The Amtsgericht appointed a creditors' committee of inspection. The first creditors' meeting is scheduled to take place on 15 May 2012.
