Hanwha SolarOne reports third quarter 2012 results

Wednesday, Dec 12, 2012

SHANGHAI, Dec. 11, 2012 /PRNewswire/ -- Hanwha SolarOne Co., Ltd. ("SolarOne" or the "Company") (Nasdaq: HSOL), a vertically integrated manufacturer of silicon ingots, wafers and photovoltaic ("PV") cells and modules in China, today reported its unaudited financial results for the quarter ended  September 30, 2012.  The Company will host a conference call to discuss the results at 8:00 am Eastern Time (9:00 pm Shanghai Time) on December 11, 2012.  A slide presentation with details of the results will also be available on the Company's website prior to the call.

Mr. Ki-Joon HONG, Chairman and CEO of Hanwha SolarOne commented, "In spite of a difficult operating environment, we achieved some good progress in shipment and production costs during the third quarter even though we suffered from continued ASP decline. Our shipment volumes grew nicely quarter-to-quarter, our production costs continued to decline and now are reaching our year-end target, and we are increasingly seeing synergies with our parent company, particularly in downstream activities. We also anticipate opportunities resulting from the cooperation with Q CELLS, which was recently acquired by our parent company. We remain optimistic that our presence in large new growth markets such as China, Japan and the US, will provide incremental volume potential in 2013. Challenging industry conditions remain: overcapacity, a spike in manufacturer's inventories, declining prices, and regulatory issues pertaining to duties in the US and possibly Europe. In spite of these, we continue to move forward with our long-term goals, in concert with support from our largest shareholder. We believe we have established the brand, a competitive cost structure, balance sheet and a management team to enter the next growth stage of the industry."
