REC ASA Decided to Cease further Funding of REC Wafer

Consequently there is no basis for a solvent winding-up of the company and the Board of REC Wafer Norway AS has resolved to file for bankruptcy. During 2011 and 2012 the production of REC Wafer Norway AS in Glomfjord and at Herøya was permanently closed down. Activities were initiated to wind-up the company. As of end of July 2012, REC Wafer Norway AS’s estimated carrying value of liabilities exceeded the estimated value of assets by about NOK 1,2 billion. Thus a solvent winding-up of the company would be dependent on continued funding from REC ASA, owner of 100 % of the shares in REC Wafer Norway AS. Taking into consideration the overall financial situation of the REC Group and the interests of its stakeholders, the Board of REC ASA has resolved to cease further funding of REC Wafer Norway AS. Consequently there is no basis for a solvent winding-up of the company and the Board of REC Wafer Norway AS has resolved to file for bankruptcy. In connection with the bankruptcy in REC Wafer Norway AS, REC ASA will incur additional costs and further losses related to certain guarantees, loans, and indemnity agreements currently estimated at approximately NOK 0,4 billion. The bankruptcy of REC Wafer Norway AS will have no effect on REC Solar and REC Silicon. (10/2012)
