Hanwha SolarOne Reports Third Quarter 2012 Results

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.

Third QUARTER 2012 HIGHLIGHTS[1]

  • Total net revenues were RMB966.1 million (US$153.7 million), a decrease of 9.9% from 2Q12, and a decrease of 32.8% from 3Q11.
  • PV module shipments, including module processing services, were 239.5 MW, an increase of 3.8% from 230.7 MW in 2Q12, and an increase of 19.2% from 200.9 MW in 3Q11.
  • Average selling price ("ASP"), excluding module processing services, decreased to RMB4.22 per watt (US$0.67) from RMB4.85 per watt in 2Q12, and decreased from RMB7.86 per watt in 3Q11.
  • Gross loss was RMB56.1 million (US$8.9 million), compared with gross profit of RMB67.5 million in 2Q12 and, gross loss of RMB155.2 million in 3Q11.
  • Gross margin was negative 5.8%, compared with positive 6.3% in 2Q12, due to the decline in ASP outpacing the decline in production costs. Gross margin in 3Q11 was negative 10.8%.
  • Operating loss increased to RMB251.2 million (US$40.0 million) from an operating loss of RMB82.8 million in 2Q12.  The Company recorded an operating loss of RMB327.8 million in 3Q11.  The increase in operating loss in 3Q12 from 2Q12 was primarily due to further declined ASP and an increased operating expense such as freight.
  • Operating margin was negative 26.0%, compared with negative 7.7% in 2Q12 and negative 22.8% in 3Q11.
  • Net loss attributable to shareholders on a non-GAAP basis was RMB301.9 million (US$48.0 million), compared with a net loss of RMB245.9 million in 2Q12 and a net loss of RMB295.7 million in 3Q11.
  • Net loss per basic ADS on a non-GAAP basis was RMB3.57 (US$0.57), compared with a net loss per basic ADS on a non-GAAP basis of RMB2.91 in 2Q12 and a net loss per ADS on a non-GAAP basis of RMB3.51 in 3Q11.
  • Net loss attributable to shareholders on a GAAP basis was RMB322.1 million (US$51.3 million), compared with a net loss attributable to shareholders on a GAAP basis of RMB266.7 million in 2Q12. The Company recorded a non-cash gain of RMB1.2 million (US$0.2 million) from the change in fair value of the convertible feature of the Company's convertible bonds, as compared with a non-cash gain of RMB1.1 million in 2Q12.  Net loss attributable to shareholders on a GAAP basis in 3Q11 was RMB177.6 million, including a non-cash gain of RMB131.4 million from the change in fair value of the convertible feature of the Company's convertible bonds.  As explained in prior quarters, the fluctuations in the fair value of the convertible feature of the Company's convertible bonds are primarily due to changes in the Company's ADS price, over which the Company has no direct control, and does not reflect the operating performance of the Company.
  • Net loss per basic ADS on a GAAP basis was RMB3.81 (US$0.61), compared with a net loss per basic ADS on a GAAP basis of RMB3.16 in 2Q12 and a net loss per basic ADS on a GAAP basis of RMB2.11 in 3Q11.
  • Annualized Return on Equity ("ROE") on a non-GAAP basis was negative 38.5%, compared with negative 28.8% in 2Q12 and negative 24.6% in 3Q11. 
  • Annualized ROE on a GAAP basis was negative 36.0% in 3Q12, compared with negative 27.6% in 2Q12 and negative 13.6% in 3Q11.

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." 

THIRD QUARTER 2012 RESULTS

  • Total net revenues were RMB 966.1 million (US$153.7 million), a decrease of 9.9% from RMB 1,071.7 million in 2Q12, and a decrease of 32.8% from RMB 1,437.3 million in 3Q11.  The decrease in total net revenues in 3Q12 compared with 2Q12 is primarily due to lower selling prices.
  • PV module shipments, including module processing services, were 239.5 MW, an increase from 230.7 MW in 2Q12, and also an increase from 200.9 MW in 3Q11.
  • Revenue contribution from PV module processing services as a percentage of total net revenues was 6.2%, compared with 4.8% in 2Q12. The Company continues to shift its focus to branded sales, but processing services temporarily increased.  
  • The Company shipped PV modules to over 24 countries during 3Q12. Europe and Africa ("EA") accounted for 63% of total shipments. Germany accounted for 39% of total shipments. Other significant markets in Europe included Italy, Belgium and Holland, representing 6%, 5% and 5% of total shipments, respectively. The Asia Pacific region ("AP") accounted for 22% of total shipments, including China (11%), Korea (6%), Japan (3%) and India (2%). Shipments to North America, including the United States, represented 13% of total shipments.
  • ASP, excluding module processing services, decreased to RMB4.22 per watt (US$0.67) from RMB4.85 per watt in 2Q12 and from RMB7.86 per watt in 3Q11.
  • Gross loss was RMB56.1 million (US$8.9 million), compared with gross profit of RMB67.5 million in 2Q12 and gross loss of RMB155.2 million in 3Q11.
  • Gross margin was negative 5.8%, compared with positive 6.3% in 2Q12. Internal production costs decreased but the decline in ASP outpaced the decline in production costs from 2Q12 to 3Q12.  Gross margin in 3Q11 was negative 10.8%. Gross loss in 3Q12 included the non-cash charges from inventory write-down of RMB32.0 million (US$5.1 million).
  • The blended cost of goods sold ("COGS") per watt, excluding module processing services, was US$0.71, representing a 1.4% decrease from US$0.72 in 2Q12.  The blended COGS takes into account the production cost (silicon and non-silicon) using internally sourced wafers, purchase costs and additional processing costs of externally sourced wafers and cells.
  • Internal production costs (including both silicon and non-silicon costs) using internally sourced wafers were US$0.67 per watt, representing a 5.6% decrease from US$0.71 per watt in 2Q12.  The decrease was primarily due to reduced polysilicon costs as well as operational improvements.
  • Operating loss was RMB251.2 million (US$40.0 million), compared with an operating loss of RMB82.8 million in 2Q12 and an operating loss of RMB327.8 million in 3Q11.  Operating margin was negative 26.0%, compared to negative 7.7% in 2Q12 and negative 22.8% in 3Q11.
  • Operating expenses as a percentage of total net revenues were 20.2% in 3Q12, compared with 14.0% in 2Q12 and 12.0% in 3Q11. The higher percentage in 3Q12 compared with 2Q12 was primarily due to a large increase in freight charges.
  • Interest expense was RMB79.9 million (US$12.7 million), compared with RMB76.6 million in 2Q12 and RMB47.2 million in 3Q11, as a result of the Company's higher debt levels.
  • The Company recorded a net gain of RMB18.1 million (US$2.9 million), which combined the effect of a foreign exchange gain with a loss from the change in fair value of derivatives.  The Company recorded a net loss of RMB34.3 million in 2Q12 and a net gain of RMB0.4 million in 3Q11, which were the net effect of the foreign exchange gain/loss and the gain/loss from changes in fair value of derivatives.
  • Gain from the change in fair value of the conversion feature of the Company's convertible bonds was RMB1.2 million (US$0.2 million), compared with a gain of RMB1.1 million in 2Q12 and a gain of RMB131.4 million in 3Q11.  The fluctuations resulting from the application of ASC 815-40 on January 1, 2009, were primarily due to changes in the Company's ADS price during the quarter.  This line item has fluctuated, and is expected to continue to fluctuate quarter-to-quarter.  The Company has no direct control over the fluctuations.
  • Income tax benefit in 3Q12 was RMB15.8 million (US$2.5 million), compared with income tax expense of RMB77.8 million in 2Q12 and income tax benefit of RMB65.4 million in 3Q11.
  • Net loss attributable to shareholders on a non-GAAP basis[1] was RMB301.9 million (US$48.0 million), compared with a net loss attributable to shareholders of RMB245.9 million in 2Q12 and net loss attributable to shareholders of RMB295.7 million in 3Q11.
  • Net loss per basic ADS on a non-GAAP basis was RMB3.57 (US$0.57), compared with a net loss per basic ADS on a non-GAAP basis of RMB2.91 in 2Q12 and a net loss per basic ADS on a non-GAAP basis of RMB3.51 in 3Q11. 
  • Net loss attributable to shareholders on a GAAP basis was RMB322.1 million (US$51.3 million), compared with a net loss attributable to shareholders of RMB266.7 million in 2Q12 and net loss attributable to shareholders of RMB177.6 million in 3Q11.
  • Net loss per basic ADS on a GAAP basis was RMB3.81 (US$0.61), compared with a net loss per basic ADS on a GAAP basis of RMB3.16 in 2Q12 and net loss per basic ADS of RMB2.11 in 3Q11.
  • Annualized ROE on a non-GAAP basis was negative 38.5%, compared with negative 28.8% in 2Q12 and negative 24.6% in 3Q11.
  • Annualized ROE on a GAAP basis was negative 36.0%, compared with negative 27.6% in 2Q12 and negative 13.6% in 3Q11.

FINANCIAL POSITION

The Company is in the process of assessing potential impairments of its long-lived assets, deferred tax assets and the provision for certain accounts receivable and advanced payments. The Company will report its outcome and any impairment when it is completed. If impairment charges are made, they will be non-cash accounting charges.

As of  September 30, 2012, the Company had cash and cash equivalents of RMB1,607.2 million (US$255.7 million) and net working capital of RMB915.4 million (US$145.6 million), compared with cash and cash equivalents of RMB1,789.3 million and net working capital of RMB1,280.4 million as of June 30, 2012.  Total short-term bank borrowings (including the current portion of long-term bank borrowings) were RMB1,917.7 million (US$305.1 million), compared with RMB1,941.6 million as of June 30, 2012.  The decrease in short-term bank borrowings was primarily due to the Company's ongoing strategy to shift debt to longer-term bank borrowings.

As of September 30, 2012, the Company had total long-term debt of RMB2,757.9 million (US$438.8 million), which comprised both long-term bank borrowings and convertible notes payable.  The Company's long-term bank borrowings are to be repaid in installments until their maturities, which range from 2 to 4 years.  Holders of the convertible notes have the option to require the Company to redeem the notes beginning on January 15, 2015.

Net cash used in operating activities in 3Q12 was RMB 322.1 million (US$51.2 million), compared with net cash used in operating activities of RMB335.4 million in 2Q12 and net cash used in operating activities of RMB432.1 million in 3Q11.

As of September 30, 2012, accounts receivable were RMB 1,154.6 million (US$183.7 million), compared with RMB 802.9 million as of June 30, 2012 and RMB 537.5 million as of December 31, 2011. Days sales outstanding were 126 days in 3Q12, compared with 77 days in 2Q12 and 80 days in 3Q11. The Company increased its payment terms as a market strategy.

As of September 30, 2012, inventories increased to RMB757.0 million (US$120.4 million) from RMB684.9 million as of June 30, 2012, and from RMB684.0 million as of December 31, 2011.  Days inventory were 63 days in 3Q12, compared with 60 days in 2Q12 and 59 days in 3Q11.

Capital expenditures were RMB80.1 million (US$12.7 million) in 3Q12.  In 3Q12, the Company repurchased an additional $22 million of its convertible bonds. The Company previously repurchased approximately $50 million of its convertible bonds during 1Q12.

CAPACITY  

As of September 30, 2012, the Company had production capacity of 800 MW for ingots and wafers, 1.3 GW for cells and 1.5 GW for modules.  The Company currently has no near-term plan to add additional capacity.  Management will review expansion needs in the future in line with changes in overall market demand.

BUSINESS OUTLOOK

The Company provides the following guidance based on current operating trends and market conditions.

For the full year 2012, the Company expects:

  • Module shipments reduced from the previous forecast (900 MW to 1 GW) to a range of 825 to 850 MW.
  • Capital expenditures of US$100 million (Reduced from US$150 million), depending on demand and other market conditions.
  • Processing costs (excluding silicon costs) to be approximately US$0.50 per watt by the end of 2012.

OTHER DEVELOPMENTS

On September 6, 2012, the European Commission launched an anti-dumping investigation regarding whether Chinese producers are selling solar panels at unfairly low prices in Europe.  The Company believes its pricing practices have been fair and lawful in Europe and other jurisdictions. In any event, the Company intends to vigorously defend itself and rebut all allegations.

20th Cloud Expo, taking place June 6-8, 2017, at the Javits Center in New York City, NY, will feature technical sessions from a rock star conference faculty and the leading industry players in the world. Cloud computing is now being embraced by a majority of enterprises of all sizes. Yesterday's debate about public vs. private has transformed into the reality of hybrid cloud: a recent survey shows that 74% of enterprises have a hybrid cloud strategy.
More and more brands have jumped on the IoT bandwagon. We have an excess of wearables – activity trackers, smartwatches, smart glasses and sneakers, and more that track seemingly endless datapoints. However, most consumers have no idea what “IoT” means. Creating more wearables that track data shouldn't be the aim of brands; delivering meaningful, tangible relevance to their users should be. We're in a period in which the IoT pendulum is still swinging. Initially, it swung toward "smart for smar...

"ReadyTalk is an audio and web video conferencing provider. We've really come to embrace WebRTC as the platform for our future of technology," explained Dan Cunningham, CTO of ReadyTalk, in this SYS-CON.tv interview at WebRTC Summit at 19th Cloud Expo, held November 1-3, 2016, at the Santa Clara Convention Center in Santa Clara, CA.
Everyone knows that truly innovative companies learn as they go along, pushing boundaries in response to market changes and demands. What's more of a mystery is how to balance innovation on a fresh platform built from scratch with the legacy tech stack, product suite and customers that continue to serve as the business' foundation. In his General Session at 19th Cloud Expo, Michael Chambliss, Head of Engineering at ReadyTalk, discussed why and how ReadyTalk diverted from healthy revenue and mor...
In an era of historic innovation fueled by unprecedented access to data and technology, the low cost and risk of entering new markets has leveled the playing field for business. Today, any ambitious innovator can easily introduce a new application or product that can reinvent business models and transform the client experience. In their Day 2 Keynote at 19th Cloud Expo, Mercer Rowe, IBM Vice President of Strategic Alliances, and Raejeanne Skillern, Intel Vice President of Data Center Group and G...
Extracting business value from Internet of Things (IoT) data doesn’t happen overnight. There are several requirements that must be satisfied, including IoT device enablement, data analysis, real-time detection of complex events and automated orchestration of actions. Unfortunately, too many companies fall short in achieving their business goals by implementing incomplete solutions or not focusing on tangible use cases. In his general session at @ThingsExpo, Dave McCarthy, Director of Products...
You have great SaaS business app ideas. You want to turn your idea quickly into a functional and engaging proof of concept. You need to be able to modify it to meet customers' needs, and you need to deliver a complete and secure SaaS application. How could you achieve all the above and yet avoid unforeseen IT requirements that add unnecessary cost and complexity? You also want your app to be responsive in any device at any time. In his session at 19th Cloud Expo, Mark Allen, General Manager of...
Data is the fuel that drives the machine learning algorithmic engines and ultimately provides the business value. In his session at Cloud Expo, Ed Featherston, a director and senior enterprise architect at Collaborative Consulting, discussed the key considerations around quality, volume, timeliness, and pedigree that must be dealt with in order to properly fuel that engine.
The 20th International Cloud Expo has announced that its Call for Papers is open. Cloud Expo, to be held June 6-8, 2017, at the Javits Center in New York City, brings together Cloud Computing, Big Data, Internet of Things, DevOps, Containers, Microservices and WebRTC to one location. With cloud computing driving a higher percentage of enterprise IT budgets every year, it becomes increasingly important to plant your flag in this fast-expanding business opportunity. Submit your speaking proposal ...
Businesses and business units of all sizes can benefit from cloud computing, but many don't want the cost, performance and security concerns of public cloud nor the complexity of building their own private clouds. Today, some cloud vendors are using artificial intelligence (AI) to simplify cloud deployment and management. In his session at 20th Cloud Expo, Ajay Gulati, Co-founder and CEO of ZeroStack, will discuss how AI can simplify cloud operations. He will cover the following topics: why clou...
As ridesharing competitors and enhanced services increase, notable changes are occurring in the transportation model. Despite the cost-effective means and flexibility of ridesharing, both drivers and users will need to be aware of the connected environment and how it will impact the ridesharing experience. In his session at @ThingsExpo, Timothy Evavold, Executive Director Automotive at Covisint, discussed key challenges and solutions to powering a ride sharing and/or multimodal model in the age ...
The Internet of Things (IoT) promises to simplify and streamline our lives by automating routine tasks that distract us from our goals. This promise is based on the ubiquitous deployment of smart, connected devices that link everything from industrial control systems to automobiles to refrigerators. Unfortunately, comparatively few of the devices currently deployed have been developed with an eye toward security, and as the DDoS attacks of late October 2016 have demonstrated, this oversight can ...
Bert Loomis was a visionary. This general session will highlight how Bert Loomis and people like him inspire us to build great things with small inventions. In their general session at 19th Cloud Expo, Harold Hannon, Architect at IBM Bluemix, and Michael O'Neill, Strategic Business Development at Nvidia, discussed the accelerating pace of AI development and how IBM Cloud and NVIDIA are partnering to bring AI capabilities to "every day," on-demand. They also reviewed two "free infrastructure" pr...
Major trends and emerging technologies – from virtual reality and IoT, to Big Data and algorithms – are helping organizations innovate in the digital era. However, to create real business value, IT must think beyond the ‘what’ of digital transformation to the ‘how’ to harness emerging trends, innovation and disruption. Architecture is the key that underpins and ties all these efforts together. In the digital age, it’s important to invest in architecture, extend the enterprise footprint to the cl...
What happens when the different parts of a vehicle become smarter than the vehicle itself? As we move toward the era of smart everything, hundreds of entities in a vehicle that communicate with each other, the vehicle and external systems create a need for identity orchestration so that all entities work as a conglomerate. Much like an orchestra without a conductor, without the ability to secure, control, and connect the link between a vehicle’s head unit, devices, and systems and to manage the ...
We are always online. We access our data, our finances, work, and various services on the Internet. But we live in a congested world of information in which the roads were built two decades ago. The quest for better, faster Internet routing has been around for a decade, but nobody solved this problem. We’ve seen band-aid approaches like CDNs that attack a niche's slice of static content part of the Internet, but that’s it. It does not address the dynamic services-based Internet of today. It does...
Successful digital transformation requires new organizational competencies and capabilities. Research tells us that the biggest impediment to successful transformation is human; consequently, the biggest enabler is a properly skilled and empowered workforce. In the digital age, new individual and collective competencies are required. In his session at 19th Cloud Expo, Bob Newhouse, CEO and founder of Agilitiv, drew together recent research and lessons learned from emerging and established compa...
Connected devices and the industrial internet are growing exponentially every year with Cisco expecting 50 billion devices to be in operation by 2020. In this period of growth, location-based insights are becoming invaluable to many businesses as they adopt new connected technologies. Knowing when and where these devices connect from is critical for a number of scenarios in supply chain management, disaster management, emergency response, M2M, location marketing and more. In his session at @Th...
