Niestetal, January 12, 2022 - The Managing Board of SMA Solar Technology AG
(SMA/FWB: S92) is adjusting its earnings guidance for fiscal year 2021. This
is due to the ongoing negotiations regarding an existing service agreement
in the area of operation and maintenance services for photovoltaic power
plants (O&M business). The reason for the negotiations are defects in some
of the solar parks to be maintained by SMA, which only became apparent after
the contract was concluded. Based on the resulting one-off effect, the SMA
Managing Board now expects an EBITDA between €20 million and €30 million for
fiscal year 2021 (previously: €50 million to €65 million).
