The anticipated feed-in-tariff reduction in Germany generates further demand for PV systems. This has led to an unusually high sales volume already in Q1 2010 during a long German winter. This is a good starting position for Solar-Fabrik to achieve its ambitious 2010 growth targets. A solid double digit growth shall translate into European market share growth. This strategy is supported by increased marketing and sales effort as well as an optimized utilization of the installed capacity. Solar-Fabrik AG is leveraging the volume growth towards further productivity improvements and economy of scale effects in sourcing, logistics and production towards better competitiveness also in 2nd half 2010. Based on the current booking level Solar-Fabrik AG anticipates a solid 2010 profit for its "Solar Power Systems" business.
