Third Quarter 2011 Results

Revenues

Revenues were $59.6 million, compared to $70.7 million in the second quarter of 2011 and $63.2 million in the third quarter of 2010.The change was primarily attributable to revenues generated from sales of polysilicon. The Company generated revenues of $53.0 million from 1,022 MT polysilicon sold, compared to revenues of $63.0 million for 1,001 MT of polysilicon sold in the second quarter of 2011, and revenues of $55.2 million for 973 MT of polysilicon sold in the third quarter of 2010. The shipment volume of polysilicon in the third quarter of 2011 increased by 2.1% and 5.0% compared to that in the second quarter of 2011 and the third quarter of 2010, respectively. The difference in revenues from polysilicon sold was primarily due to a relatively lower average selling price of the polysilicon in the third quarter of 2011.

In the third quarter of 2011, the Company also generated $0.7 million, $2.8 million and $3.0 million for module processing service fee, sales of PV modules and sales of wafers, respectively.
