Today, Manz AG, Reutlingen, (ISIN: DE000A0JQ5U3) has signed a settlement agreement with an important customer that had stopped a major project in the Energy Storage division on short notice in early June of 2016, with possible effects on the forecast for the 2016 fiscal year (Ad-hoc memorandum from June 11, 2016). As a result of the agreement, there will be no further negative earnings effects for Manz AG from the order, which has now been definitely canceled. However, as a result of the order cancellation and the failure of anticipated follow-up orders to materialize, corresponding revenues and earnings for the 2016 fiscal year are eliminated. Nevertheless, the management board of Manz AG stands by the previous forecast for the 2016 fiscal year, pending the planned placement of an order for a CIGSfab. This forecast shows a significant increase in the revenues of the Manz Group, in comparison to the revenues achieved in the 2015 fiscal year, as well as significantly improved earnings before interest and taxes (EBIT) in comparison to the 2015 fiscal year.
