Nordex said the European debt crisis had resulted in the postponement of projects due to the difficulty in providing finance.
As a result, Nordex said it was lowering its sales target for 2011 from €1 billion to €920 million.
The Q4 fall of €80 million will cut Nordex’s operating earnings by €20 million and contribute to an operating loss before one-off costs of €10 million.
In the year to 30 September, EBIT amounted to €11 million, a fall of €6.3 million for the same period last year. In the year to date, Nordex has suffered a net loss of €600,000.
