Q-Cells SE (QCLSF.PK) published its unaudited annual results, reporting fiscal 2011 net loss of 845.8 million euros, as against a profit of 18.9 million euros a year ago. Loss before interest and tax amounted to 717.4 million euros in 2011, due to the unexpectedly difficult economic environment and extraordinary items, while in 2010 EBIT had come to 82.3 million euros.

The company noted that it was forced among others to revise down the value of tangible and intangible assets by 398.5 million euros and take 129.1 million euros in impairment charges on inventories.

Fiscal 2011 sales totaled 1.02 billion euros, thereby surpassing its target of more than 1 billion euros, while the prior year's sales amounted to 1.35 billion euros. Production volumes for 2011 came to around 783 megawatt peak or MWp.

Q-CELLS sees another loss making year in 2012, following intense competitive pressure and consolidation. However, after implementing the financial restructuring and medium-term business plan, the company is expected to return to a positive EBITDA for fiscal 2013.
