COLEXON Energy AG writes off 63.4 million Euros goodwill as of 30.9.2010

Hamburg, 21 October 2010 - COLEXON Energy AG (WKN 525070, ISIN DE0005250708) writes off 63.4 million Euros goodwill at group level. This goodwill was taken on to the books of the COLEXON group as a result of the acquisition of Renewagy A/S in 2009 and is based on the assumption of a continuous and very long-term expansion of the solar power plant portfolio. Feed-in tariffs have been reduced earlier and more severely than expected in major European markets, so that the management of COLEXON Energy AG sees itself compelled to correct the very long-term assumptions in respect of the power plant portfolio. The write-off does not affect the accounts of Colexon Energy AG, does not have a cash impact, and consequently has no influence on the current financial status of the company. The intrinsic value of the existing proprietary solar power plant portfolio is not affected by the regulatory changes, as it benefits from feed-in tariffs that are secured for 20 years. Management sees good opportunities to expand the solar power plant portfolio in the short to medium term and will continue to pursue this strategy.
