The company plans to change into the regulated market transparency level 'Prime Standard' in the second half of 2008. Further development decided for Germany and abroad. In order to make this significant growth possible, systaic AG has planned to further develop its capacities in Germany, Spain and France. In this context the key location is Germany where there is a fast development of the marketing and sales activities for the SYSTAIC energy roof, its core product. Thanks to the complete starting up of its own production plant in Landsberg am Lech, Bavaria the company has created sufficient production capacities to annually produce 40 Megawatts of panels, from the middle of the year, in order to supply key customers with high quality manufacturing which it controls directly. During this year, systaic AG will employ 45 high-qualified additional collaborators. Concerning the planning and building of solar energy power plants in Spain, there are further demands for a capacity of over 60 MWp from the side of institutional investors, although their orders depend upon the new Spanish alternative energy legislation which has not yet been implemented. In France we would like to become market leaders for the production of roof-integrated solar systems by the end 2009.
