SMA adjusts sales and earnings forecast

Niestetal, September 6, 2021 - Due to the ongoing supply bottlenecks for
electronic components, the Managing Board of SMA Solar Technology AG
(SMA/FWB: S9) is adjusting its sales and earnings forecast for 2021. The
shortage of electronic components currently affecting the entire electronics
industry has, contrary to expectations, also worsened significantly for SMA
in the short term due to the latest cancellations of firmly committed
delivery quantities. In addition, customer projects have been postponed to
the following year. The Managing Board still expects sales in the second
half of the year to be higher than in the first half. However, according to
the Executive Board, these will remain below the most recently forecast

The Executive Board now expects sales of 980 to 1030 million euros for
fiscal 2021 (previously 1075 to 1175 million euros). As a result of the
lower sales, the expectation for earnings in the fiscal year has also
changed. The Executive Board now expects to generate EBITDA of 50 to 65
million euros in 2021 (previously 75 to 95 million euros). According to the
Managing Board, the very good medium-term business prospects for SMA have
not changed.
