Wacker Chemie AG Revised Earnings Guidance for 2014

Wacker Chemie AG revised earnings guidance for 2014. EBITDA for 2014 is now projected to be at least one third higher than last year's EUR 678.7 million. Before this upgrade, the company had expected to surpass its 2013 EBITDA by at least 10%. The upward revision is based on good business performance and strong demand, especially at WACKER POLYSILICON, and success at reducing costs. Furthermore, The company expects additional special income from its polysilicon activities in the third quarter of 2014. The company has terminated or restructured contracts with solar-sector customers. As a result, WACKER's financial statements for the third quarter of 2014 will recognize special income from retained advance payments and damages received that will increase EBITDA and EBIT at WACKER POLYSILICON and within the Group by some EUR 90 million. WACKER already posted a similar special-income item of EUR 114 million in the first quarter of 2014. Consequently, the company anticipates from present perspective that retained advance payments and damages received, arising from terminated contracts with polysilicon customers, will improve full-year EBITDA by a total of some EUR 210 million.
