The Board of Phoenix Solar AG has reduced its revenue and EBIT forecasts for 2011: Expect only a turnover of 350 to 400 million euros - with EBIT -42 to -49 million euros. Reason, the current market and price development, which is not very encouraging. Dominant cause for the emerging high losses are due to inventory write-downs of an unbroken fall in prices for solar modules.

So far, Phoenix Solar has had over the previous year slightly declining group sales: expected (€ 635.7 million in 2010 sales), without giving a specific forecast EBIT. The company was following a weak first half of an increase in demand in September and a year-end rally in the fourth quarter was largely stable module prices is assumed. The revised forecast reflects a weaker than expected market recovery in the second half of 2011, especially in the current key market Germany. In addition, the expected year-end rally at the present time can not be foreseen. Short-term cost-cutting measures have already been initiated.
