Roth & Rau facing financial losses


SpectraWatt, a solar cell manufacturer and customer of Roth & Rau, has said it will likely have to discontinue trading in the first half of next year due to economic reasons. Consequently, Roth & Rau says it will be unable to meet the level of sales and earnings it had previously forecast for the 2010 financial year as a whole.

Back in November, the company said that in terms of the 2010 business year, it expected an EBIT of approximately €9 million to €9.5 million, while its sales were forecast to hit €285 million. However, in light of this new development, it has said that the Management Board will publish an adjusted forecast following further analysis.
