aleo solar AG records a sharp drop in revenue and negative earnings in financial year 2013
The business of aleo solar AG in 2013 was dominated by sharply contracting photovoltaic markets in Europe. The volume of new PV installations in Germany fell by 57 percent year-on-year. Italy and France saw a similar decline in new installations in 2013.
On 5 February 2014, aleo solar AG entered into an agreement to sell material components of the aleo solar Group's operating business, including the production site in Prenzlau and the aleo brand, to SCP Solar GmbH, Hamburg. "We are hopeful that the sale will become effective soon," said York zu Putlitz, CEO of aleo solar AG.
As resolved by the extraordinary annual meeting on 15 April 2014, aleo solar AG will be liquidated. In order to ensure that liquidation proceeds in a socially responsible manner, a reconciliation of interests for the Prenzlau and Oldenburg sites was agreed with the works council.
