3W Power S.A. / AEG Power Solutions / Key word(s): Change in Forecast/Profit Warning 13.03.2012 18:44 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 - March 13, 2012 - 3W Power, the holding company of AEG Power Solutions (AEG PS), today issues updated guidance for the financial year 2012 based on current trading and expectations. Despite the challenging market conditions, revenue in 2012 is still expected to grow, due to our positioning in global growth areas. Our revenue forecast is between EUR430m to EUR460m in 2012 compared to revenue of EUR428m in 2011. However, our profitability margins will be negatively impacted in 2012 for the reasons set out below. For 2012, we expect an EBITDA margin of between 9% to 11% compared to 12.4% in 2011. For Q1 2012, we expect revenues and profitability to be below Q1 2011 results. 2012 growth and profitability in the RES segment is being impacted by continuing global economic uncertainty and challenges in obtaining project financing, which adversely affect the timing of our customers' projects, as well as increasing price pressure in the inverter market, feed-in tariff cuts in Germany and potential overcapacity in polysilicon. Trading conditions in the EES segment, the Telecom business and, in particular, the Converter business also continue to be difficult. =- End of Announcement - About 3W Power/AEG Power Solutions: 3W Power S.A.
