DGAP-Adhoc: 3W Power/AEG Power Solutions projects 2012 normalized EBITDA margin of above 9% despite lower revenue expectation of EUR 370-380 million

3W Power S.A. / AEG Power Solutions / Key word(s): Change in Forecast/Development of Sales 29.10.2012 07:00 Dissemination of an Ad hoc announcement according to § 15 WpHG, transmitted by DGAP - a company of EquityStory AG. The issuer is solely responsible for the content of this announcement. =-------------------------------------------------------------------------- Luxembourg/Zwanenburg, The Netherlands - October 29, 2012 - 3W Power SA (Prime Standard, ISIN GG00B39QCR01, 3W9), the holding company of AEG Power Solutions (AEG PS), a global leading provider of power electronic systems and solutions for industrial power supplies and renewable energies, today revised its 2012 year-end revenue forecast. Revenue for the full year 2012 reduced to EUR 370-380 million down from EUR 430 million. The company projects a normalized EBITDA margin of at least 9%. The revision in sales is due to a lack of POC orders, the cancellation of a major POC project and the decision to declare the telecom converter business in Lannion, France (CVT/LED) as an asset held for sale. The industrial-based EES revenues excluding the telecom converter business will exceed previous year levels; the Solar segment is growing profitably 10% year on year. Despite the drop in sales, the company projects the normalized EBITDA margin for 2012 to be above 9% which excludes the discontinued operations of the telecom converter business. This EBITDA expectation has an additional upside of up to EUR 7 million due to contractual cancellation fees that may be recognized in Q4 2012. A book-to-bill in Q3 of 1.1 underpins a solid market position despite the weaknesses in the macroeconomic environment. The group maintained solid liquidity in Q3 and had EUR65 million cash on balance sheet at the end of September 2012. In response to the headwinds in the macro environment, the company initiated a cost reduction program in Warstein-Belecke, Germany and has reduced central headquarter costs considerably. In total, a headcount reduction of more than 100 employees globally is expected. The overcapacity in the POC market has resulted in an accelerated amortization charge of intangibles of EUR43.3 million. 3W Power/ AEG PS will publish its full Q3 and nine month 2012 results together with its 2013 outlook on November 13, 2012. =- End of Announcement -- Characters: c. 2,000 About 3W Power/AEG Power Solutions: 3W Power S.A.
