According to the company, 20 percent of this will be generated through international business. It added: “Group EBIT (earnings before interest and taxes) is also set to rise substantially to between EUR 36 and EUR 40 million.”

In a statement released by the company, it said: “The compromise found on July 5, 2010 through the intervention of the Mediation Committee between the German Bundesrat and Bundestag on the promotion of PV under the German Renewable Energy Act has made an assessment of the German solar market 2010 possible.

“Accordingly, the executive board of Phoenix Solar AG is releasing its guidance for the financial year 2010. The executive board… estimates that there will be a substantial increase in consolidated revenue to between €660 million and €700 million as against the previous year’s figure.”
