Revenues almost tripled from €56.7m to 150.3m during the quarter, and the EBIT went from a negative €25m to an operating profit of €0.3m.
Conergy says it expects increasing sales in both 2010 and 2011, but has not given specific figures.
“The intensified use of products manufactured in-house should have a positive impact on the gross profit margin in 2010 and generate a above-average increase in earnings,” Conergy says.
“We expect 2010 earnings before interest, taxes, depreciation and amortisation (EBITDA) will be in the low double-digit million range,” the solar company adds.
Dieter Ammer, CEO of Conergy, says: “The only bad news from last quarter is that, contrary to expectations, we have not yet been able to conclude the refinancing negotiations with our creditors.
However, he adds: “We are confident that we will be able to conclude these talks successfully in the foreseeable future.”
