Financial Results

Net sales for the quarter ended December 31, 2011 were $36.5 million. This represents a decline of 35.0% sequentially and 47.1% from a year ago. These results were driven by a decrease in sales volume of 29% from the third quarter of this year and 41% from a year ago. Lower average selling price (ASP) also contributed to the decline as ASPs were lower by approximately 9% sequentially and 11% from a year ago.

“Although there was a surge in German installations during December, we believe much of the demand was satisfied by existing channel inventory,” said Robert S. Yorgensen, STR’s President and Chief Executive Officer. “Inventory clearing has reduced module prices to where we should begin to see demand elasticity. We expect to see our customers’ order patterns for our encapsulants return to growth over the course of 2012.”
