Mr. Seong-woo Nam, Chairman and CEO of Hanwha SolarOne commented, “The second quarter of 2014 showed an increase in shipments and a significant reduction in our net loss position. Our gross margins were driven down by a lower average selling price, reflecting a decreasing proportion of sales from the higher-priced EU market, particularly the UK, and an increasing proportion from the relatively lower priced China market. We maintained our strong position in Japan and began shipments to several newer emerging markets. We continued to maintain tight control over operating expenses.”

Chairman Nam noted, ” We see a number of positive developments for our business for the remainder of this year, including 1) strong growth in quarterly shipment volumes beginning in the third quarter, driven especially by good visibility in China 2) opportunities for cost reduction due to increased efficiency and improved utilization for our ingot and wafer manufacturing lines, 3) the introduction of new four busbar cell technology, 4) reduced processing costs from decreased use of raw materials 5) increased automation of our production lines and 6) the addition of new cell and module lines. Module manufacturers continue to compete intensely on price and we expect to continue to see decreasing average selling prices near term that make gross margin expansion challenging in the near term.”

SECOND QUARTER 2014 RESULTS

  • Total net revenues were RMB1, 107.3 million (US$178.5 million), a decrease of 2.7% from RMB1,138.4 million in 1Q14, and a decrease of 6.4% from RMB1,182.8 million in 2Q13. The decrease in total net revenues in 2Q14 compared with 1Q14 was primarily due to a lower average selling price. Module processing services accounted for approximately 13% of revenues.
  • PV module shipments, including module processing services, were 339.5 MW, a 4.9% increase from 323.6 MW in 1Q14, and a 5.7% increase from 321.2 MW in 2Q13.

  • The Company once again maintained a strong presence in Japan, representing 53% of module shipments worldwide in 2Q14. The US reversed its position with the UK from the prior quarter to become the second largest market for the Company in the three months ended June 30, 2014. The UK market declined this quarter to account for 9% of total shipments, due to lower demand for utility-scale solar projects after a change in the incentive scheme. Deliveries to Korea and Canada picked up for the Company at 9%, and 7% for this quarter, respectively. This quarter we saw a meaningful rebound in shipments to the China market, representing 6% of the 339.5 MW of modules shipped. We continue to see momentum building in the China market and expect strong demand in the second half of the year. The Company continues to penetrate new emerging markets, with Turkey being the Company’s newest market. The Company increased the shipment of PV modules to 23 countries during 2Q14, including a number of notable new markets. Shipments to Europe and Africa (EA) contributed 12% to total module shipments, Asia Pacific (AP) accounted for 70% and North America (NA) 18%.
  • The average selling price of modules, excluding module processing services, decreased to RMB4.17 per watt (US$0.67), from RMB4.27 per watt in 1Q14 and increased from RMB4.03 per watt in 2Q13. This is primarily attributable to a greater percentage of business in China which is a lower price market and to a decline in volume to the UK which is comparatively a higher priced market.
  • Gross profit in 2Q14 was RMB105.1 million (US$16.9 million), compared with a gross profit of RMB158.1 million in 1Q14 and a gross profit of RMB65.3 million in 2Q13. The decrease in gross profit in 2Q14 was primarily due to lower revenues due to declining average selling price.
  • Gross margin was positive 9.5%, compared with positive 13.9% in 1Q14 and positive 5.5% in 2Q13.
  • The blended cost of goods sold (“COGS”) per watt, excluding module processing services, was US$0.59, representing no change from 1Q14. The blended COGS takes into account the production cost (silicon and non-silicon) using internally sourced wafers, and purchase costs and additional processing costs of externally sourced wafers and cells.
  • Operating loss in 2Q14 was RMB39.9 million (US$6.4 million), compared with an operating profit of RMB21.9 million in 1Q14 and an operating loss of RMB122.1 million in 2Q13. Operating margin decreased to negative 3.6% from positive 1.9% in 1Q14 and increased from negative 10.3% in 2Q13.
  • Operating expenses as a percentage of total net revenues were 13.1% in 2Q14, compared with 12.0% in 1Q14 and 15.8% in 2Q13. The Company continues to maintain tight operating expense control.
  • Interest expense was RMB88.4 million (US$14.2 million), compared with RMB89.0 million in 1Q14 and RMB73.3 million in 2Q13.
  • The Company recorded a net gain of RMB37.3 million (US$6.0 million), which included a foreign exchange gain and a loss from the change in fair value of derivatives in hedging activities. The Company recorded a net loss of RMB72.7 million in 1Q14 and a net gain of RMB47.2 million in 2Q13 for the foreign exchange gain/loss and the gain/loss from change in fair value of derivatives in hedging activities.
  • Gain from the change in fair value of the conversion feature of the Company’s convertible bonds was RMB3.4 million (US$0.6 million), compared with a loss of RMB0.3 million in 1Q14 and a loss of RMB11.3million in 2Q13. This line item has fluctuated, and is expected to continue to fluctuate quarter-to-quarter, primarily based on changes in the Company’s ADS price. The Company has no direct control over the fluctuations.
  • Net loss attributable to shareholders on a non-GAAP basis[1] was RMB54.0 million (US$8.7 million), compared with a net loss attributable to shareholders of RMB98.8 million in 1Q14 and a net loss attributable to shareholders of RMB130.0 million in 2Q13.
  • Net loss per basic ADS on a non-GAAP basis was RMB0.59 (US$0.10), compared with net loss per basic ADS on a non-GAAP basis of RMB1.09 in 1Q14 and net loss per basic ADS on a non-GAAP basis of RMB1.54 in 2Q13.
  • Net loss attributable to shareholders on a GAAP basis was RMB54.8 million (US$8.8 million), compared with net loss attributable to shareholders of RMB133.4 million in 1Q14 and net loss attributable to shareholders of RMB166.0 million in 2Q13.
  • Net loss per basic ADS on a GAAP basis was RMB0.60 (US$0.10), compared with net loss per basic ADS of RMB1.47 in 1Q14 and net loss per basic ADS of RMB1.96 in 2Q13.
  • Annualized ROE on a non-GAAP basis was negative 13.6% in 2Q14, compared with negative 24.6% in 1Q14 and negative 25.1% in 2Q13.
  • Annualized ROE on a GAAP basis was negative 11.9% in 2Q14, compared with negative 28.4% in 1Q14 and negative 27.2% in 2Q13.

[1] All non-GAAP numbers used in this press release exclude the accounting impact from the adoption of ASC 815-40, which relates to the accounting treatment for the convertible bonds. Please refer to the attached financial statements for the reconciliation between the GAAP and non-GAAP financial results.

“I’m very pleased to report that we delivered another set of solid results in the second quarter of 2014 with an increase of 40.8% in our PV module shipments over the first quarter of 2014, which includes shipments for PV systems to the Company’s own downstream power plants in China, and an overall gross margin of 15.6%, well in line with our previous guidance,” commented Mr. Liansheng Miao, Chairman and Chief Executive Officer of Yingli Green Energy. “We remain focused on returning to net profitability by improving our operating efficiency, reducing manufacturing costs and optimizing our geographical footprints. In the second quarter, we saw increased demand for Yingli Solar modules from our key markets, such as China, Japan, United Kingdom and other new emerging markets. In particular, our shipments to new emerging markets in the second quarter increased by approximately 18% quarter over quarter while customer base doubled compared with the second quarter of 2013. Our dedicated local team in Japan has obtained notable achievements, which resulted in our shipments to Japan in the first half of 2014 exceeded our total shipments to Japan in 2013.”

“In the first half of this year, we are developing in the aggregate 155 MW of downstream projects, some of these projects under construction are expected to be further developed together with our business partners such as China National Nuclear Corporation, Shanghai Sailing Capital Investment Fund and Datong Coal Mine Group Co., Ltd. In the third quarter, we expect to start construction of a total of 168 MW of downstream projects across China.”

“Moving back to domestic market, we see large potential for distributed generation PV projects in the second half of 2014 although the growth in demand was slower than expectation in the first half of this year. The National Energy Administration of PRC announced that it planned to issue a notice requiring further efforts to implement the supportive polices for distributed generation PV projects and announced the goal of achieving at least 13 GW of PV capacity to be connected to the grid in 2014. We expect that the demand for PV modules in China market will accelerate in the second half of 2014,” Mr. Miao concluded.

Second Quarter 2014 Financial Results

Total Net Revenues

Total net revenues were RMB 3,408.9 million (US$549.5 million) in the second quarter of 2014, compared to RMB 2,686.8 million in the first quarter of 2014 and RMB 3,378.3 million in the second quarter of 2013. Total PV module shipments were 887.9 MW in the second quarter of 2014 (including 71.8 MW shipments for PV systems to the Company’s own downstream power plants in China), representing a significant increase of 40.8% from that in the first quarter of 2014. Revenues were not recognized for 71.8 MW of internal shipments as required by U.S. GAAP. The increase of PV module shipments was primarily due to the stronger demand in the global PV markets especially in China, UK and new emerging markets.

Gross Profit and Gross Margin

Overall gross profit was RMB 532.1 million (US$85.8 million) in the second quarter of 2014, significantly improved from RMB 421.3 million in the first quarter of 2014 and RMB 397.5 million in the second quarter of 2013.

Overall gross margin was 15.6% in the second quarter of 2014, slightly down from 15.7% in the first quarter of 2014 and up from 11.8% in the second quarter of 2013. Gross margin for sales of PV modules was 16.2% in the second quarter of 2014, compared to 16.8% in the first quarter of 2014 and 12.5% in the second quarter of 2013.

The increase of operating expenses was mainly due to the increased selling and marketing expense in line with the Company’s increased PV module shipments in this quarter, and partially offset by the decrease of general and administrative expenses.

Operating expenses as a percentage of total net revenues were 18.1% in the second quarter of 2014, compared to 20.5% in the first quarter of 2014 and 15.6% in the second quarter of 2013.

Business Outlook for Full Year 2014

Based on current market and operating conditions, estimated production capacity and forecasted customer demand, the Company revises its PV module shipment target to be in the estimated range of 3.6GW to 3.8GW (including 400 to 600MW shipment for PV systems) for fiscal year 2014, which represents an increase of 11.3% to 17.5% compared to fiscal year 2013.

Downstream Development in 2014

Currently, the Company has in the aggregate approximately 1.4 GW of PV projects pipeline at different approval stages across a dozen of provinces in China. During the second quarter of 2014, the Company started construction for two ground-mounted PV plants with a total capacity of 110MW and a distributed generation project of 20MW. Therefore, accumulatively 155 MW of PV projects started construction in the first half of 2014. These PV projects were included in the consolidated financial statements. In the third quarter, the Company plans to start constructions of 168 MW of PV projects located in Hebei, Ningxia, Shanxi, Guangdong and Shandong provinces. Some of these projects are expected to be co-developed with our business partners such as China National Nuclear Corporation, Shanghai Sailing Capital Investment Fund and Datong Coal Mine Group Co., Ltd.

In addition, the Company has manifested an encouraging breakthrough in its overseas PV plants business by expanding its footprints into Poland and Senegal with a strategic alliance with AMB Energia Wytwarzanie to co-develop 30 MW of PV projects in Poland in June and an engineering, procurement and construction (“EPC”) contract with Senelec for a 2 MW ground-mounted PV plant in Senegal in July.

Based on the current project development status and the progress of project pipelines, the Company expects to develop approximately 400MW to 600MW of PV projects by the end of 2014.

Non-GAAP Financial Measures

To supplement the financial measures calculated in accordance with GAAP, this press release includes certain non-GAAP financial measures of adjusted gross profit, adjusted gross margin, adjusted operating loss, adjusted operating margin, adjusted net income (loss), adjusted diluted earnings (loss) per ordinary share and per ADS and EBITDA, each of which (other than EBITDA) is adjusted to exclude, as applicable, items related to share-based compensation, interest expense related to the changes in the fair value of the interest-rate swap and the amortization of the debt discount, the amortization of intangible assets, inventory provision, impairment of long-lived assets and non-cash provision for inventory purchase commitments. EBITDA excludes interest, tax expenses, depreciation and amortization. The Company believes excluding these items from its non-GAAP financial measures is useful for its management and investors to assess and analyse the Company’s on-going performance as such items are not directly attributable to the underlying performance of the Company’s business operations and do not impact its cash earnings. The Company also believes these non-GAAP financial measures are important to help investors understand the Company’s current financial performance and future prospects and compare business trends among different reporting periods on a consistent basis. These non-GAAP financial measures should be considered in addition to financial measures presented in accordance with GAAP, but should not be considered as a substitute for, or superior to, financial measures presented in accordance with GAAP. For a reconciliation of each of these non-GAAP financial measures to the most directly comparable GAAP financial measure, please see the financial information included elsewhere in this press release.

Currency Conversion

Solely for the convenience of readers, certain Renminbi amounts have been translated into U.S. dollar amounts at the rate of RMB 6.2036 to US$1.00, the noon buying rate in New York for cable transfers of Renminbi per U.S. dollar as set forth in the H.10 weekly statistical release of the Federal Reserve Board as of June 30, 2014. No representation is intended to imply that the Renminbi amounts could have been, or could be, converted, realized or settled into U.S. dollar amounts at such rate, or at any other rate. The percentages stated in this press release are calculated based on Renminbi.
