“In the fourth quarter of 2011, we continued to operate our polysilicon manufacturing smoothly. We achieved our targets for production and shipment. In addition, we successfully conducted annual maintenance, and in turn laid a concrete foundation for the operation in 2012.” commented Dr. Gongda Yao, Chief Executive Officer of the Company “Nevertheless, the weakening industry environment resulted in even lower selling prices for Polysilicon, Wafer and Module compared to the third quarter, which adversely affected our profitability.”
