Terry Wang



Thank you Mr. Gao and welcome everyone to our earning conference call. I would like to present our overview of our second quarter financial results followed by company’s guidance for the third quarter and full year of 2012.

Average Selling Price of PV modules continued to decline in the second quarter due to worldwide production overcapacity, reduction in feed in tariffs programs and the falling raw material costs. To outperform in such a market conditions we work to further lower our non silicon manufacturing cost which were to $0.50 in the second quarter on improved supply chain and production management. In addition, the company minimized its provisions related to US ADCVD tariffs compared to the first quarter.

On the other hand, inventory write-down and accounts receivable provisions adversely impacted our bottomline results. Second quarter shipment was 419 megawatts, in upper-end of our revised guidance of 380 megawatt to 420 megawatts representing approximately 10% of higher volume sequentially.
