    Sunways: Possible Return to Profit Zone from 2014 Onwards

    The Sunways Group believes it will again be able to generate operating profits from 2014 onwards. This improvement of the financial situation is to be achieved mainly through sales and cost synergies resulting from the intensified cooperation with the Chinese LDK Solar Group. Following the public takeover offer, LDK Solar Germany Holding GmbH is the new majority shareholder of the Konstanz-based photovoltaics manufacturer. "At present, we have to cope with individual but mostly also with industry-related structural problems. The pace of consolidation in the photovoltaics industry has accelerated significantly", said Michael Wilhelm, CEO of Sunways, at the company's general meeting held in Singen today. Wilhelm explained the reasons for the major losses incurred in the fiscal 2011 but also emphasized: "Due to the partnership with the LDK Solar Group, the prospects of the technology specialist Sunways are much better than they would be under a stand-alone strategy. In terms of operating profit, we plan to report black figures again in 2014."
