Mr. Jin continued, "In the fourth quarter, shipments to Japan, where we have established ourselves as one of the top international suppliers, and China grew significantly. Shipments to the U.S. declined in the quarter due to seasonality, although we expect to see increasing demand there in 2013. We're optimistic that we will continue to make inroads into other markets, including the Middle East, Australia and Latin America, all of which have promising long-term potential.""Moving into 2013, we remain focused on cost reduction and stringent cash management, while maintaining our leadership position in technology through continued R&D efforts and manufacturing process optimization. Ultimately, we believe JA Solar's value proposition, which combines high-quality, high-efficiency products with prudent financial management, will see us emerge from this difficult environment as one of the industry's long-term winners."
