Article 17 of MAR 
Wacker Chemie AG / Forecast Change 
WACKER Raises its Forecast for Fiscal Year 2021 
Munich, June 16, 2021, 16.30 p.m. CEST - Following the sustained positive performance of its business, Wacker Chemie AG 
("WACKER") is raising its full-year guidance for sales and EBITDA. The company now expects full-year 2021 sales of 
around EUR5.5 billion (2020: EUR4.69 billion). Previously, WACKER had assumed sales growth in the low double-digit 
percentage range. Group EBITDA for 2021 is expected to be between EUR900 million and EUR1.1 billion. Previously, WACKER had 
expected EBITDA to rise by 15 to 25 percent year-on-year (EUR666 million). For Q2 2021, WACKER expects sales of around 
EUR1.5 billion and EBITDA between EUR300 million and EUR350 million. 
The ongoing positive development of polysilicon prices and the continuously strong demand in WACKER's chemical business 
are the reasons for the higher expectations. At the same time, however, higher raw material prices and negative 
currency effects are expected to weigh on EBITDA with more than EUR300 million (previous forecast: more than EUR200 
million). The current forecast takes this development into account.

This publication contains forward-looking statements based on assumptions and estimates of WACKER's Executive Board. 
Although we assume the expectations in these forward-looking statements are realistic, we cannot guarantee they will 
prove to be correct. The assumptions may harbor risks and uncertainties that may cause the actual figures to differ 
considerably from the forward-looking statements. Factors that may cause such discrepancies include, among other 
things, changes in the economic and business environment, variations in exchange and interest rates, the introduction 
of competing products, lack of acceptance for new products or services, and changes in corporate strategy. WACKER does 
not plan to update its forward-looking statements, nor does it assume the obligation to do so. 
This document includes supplemental financial measures (not clearly defined in the applicable financial reporting 
framework) that are or may be alternative performance measures (APM). These supplemental financial measures should not 
be viewed in isolation or as alternatives to measures of WACKER's net assets and financial positions or results of 
operations as presented in accordance with the applicable financial reporting framework in its Consolidated Financial 
Statements. Other companies that report or describe similarly titled alternative performance measures may calculate 
them differently. Explanations of financial measures used can be found in the Annual Report 2020 of Wacker Chemie AG
