_Garbsen, 27 September 2020_ - Today, technology company LPKF Laser &
Electronics AG (LPKF) has signed a framework agreement with a manufacturer
of thin-film solar modules, from which LPKF expects a total volume of at
least ca. EUR 18 million. Together with the signing of the framework
agreement, an initial order for laser systems for the structuring of solar
modules has been placed by the customer. Revenue from this framework
agreement is expected to be realized beginning in the second quarter of 2021
and into 2022. The parties have agreed not to disclose details of the
framework agreement.

LPKF has been a successful supplier to the solar industry for 13 years and
is now a globally leading supplier of highly specialized laser systems for
structuring thin-film solar modules.

Due to the COVID-19 pandemic, this customer's projects have been delayed
during the course of this year. "We appreciate this positive impulse for our
solar business and will soon commence production of this first order at our
Suhl location", says CEO Goetz M. Bendele. "The solar segment is an
important element of our growth strategy. With this order, we can further
strengthen our market position in the thin-film segment". The framework
agreement confirms the company's internal revenue planning in the Solar

LPKF's ultra-precise laser technology enables manufacturers to significantly
increase the conversion efficiency of each individual solar module. This
makes the production of solar electricity more competitive - even without
state subsidies. "Against the backdrop of ongoing and accelerating climate
change, this is a good example of how innovative technology can be used to
make the generation of electric energy both cleaner and more sustainable,"
says Bendele.
