Company Announcement, Insider information 30 March 2020 at 2.00 p.m. (CEST)
Savosolar statutory negotiations completed; temporary layoffs due to the corona situation
The statutory negotiations regarding Savosolar Plc’s corona position have been completed. Under the statutory procedure, the company will temporarily lay off 22 people on a part-time or full-time basis for a maximum of 90 days over the next three months. The factory will continue its operations with a shortened working week according to the current plan for April, as the company still has orders to fulfill. If the corona situation changes substantially during the three-month period, or if the company receives new orders during the lay-off period, the plan may be changed as necessary. The call back to work may take place with a three (3) days’ notice. The company has several projects in the active bidding phase and thus the above mentioned adjustment measures do not apply to sales personnel.
The company’s Board of Directors and CEO will also reduce their remuneration within the next three months. Overall, the company expects to achieve approximately EUR 0.5 million in savings over the next three months through personnel arrangements and other ongoing savings measures.
