Uwe Bögershausen (pictured), CFO for module manufacturer Aleo Solar, has said in an interview with Reuters that it expects 2009 to hold promising profit levels for the company. The company has secured short- and long-term financing for the year ahead, and expects a hike of €380 million in sales this year as compared to 2008.
The optimistic outlook does come with a warning, however: Mr. Boegershausen expects the first quarter of this year to be weaker revenue-wise than the same period last year, but overall, the prognosis is good.
“Regarding short-term financing, we have extended our credit lines and feel well positioned in the current economic environment,” commented Mr. Boegershausen in the interview with Reuters. “The first quarter may be weaker compared to last year, but that holds true for everyone. But we will remain on track in a difficult market environment.”
