[1]   JinkoSolar adjusts net income attributable to JinkoSolar Holding Co., Ltd.'s ordinary shareholders to exclude 1) changes in fair value of convertible senior notes and capped call options, 2) interest expenses on the convertible senior notes, and 3) the exchange gain on the convertible senior notes and capped call options. Consistent with this approach, we believe that disclosing non-GAAP net income and earnings per share to the readers of our financial statements provides useful supplemental data that, while not a substitute for GAAP net income and earnings per share, allows for greater transparency in the review of our financial and operational performance.

"I am very proud to report JinkoSolar's second consecutive quarter of profitability following robust quarter-over-quarter growth in revenue, module shipments, and gross margins," commented Mr. Kangping Chen, JinkoSolar's Chief Executive Officer. "We have picked up considerable momentum from the strategic investments we made during the downturn. During that time, we successfully penetrated new markets, broadened our geographic reach, and expanded our downstream business, which has already resulted in net profitability for the entire year, a goal we initially set for ourselves to complete by the end of 2013. We now look forward to closing out the year on an even stronger footing. JinkoSolar is now solidly among the leading global solar PV companies with gross margins that have steadily improved to 22.3% thanks to our leading cost structure, improving global ASPs and growing profits from solar projects. I believe our strong operational and financial performance demonstrates management's effectiveness and ability to execute its strategy. Having regained profitability for a second quarter, and having achieved net profitability for the entire year a quarter ahead of schedule, we are now devoting our substantial resources and attention towards growing our core PV business and to rapidly expanding our downstream business."

"The follow-on public offering of 4,370,000 ADSs we issued during the quarter is another vote of confidence by the market in our future and the direction we are headed. We raised approximately US$67.8 million to further improve our working capital and cash reserves and are eager to put the cash to work. The capital will be used to supplement our working capital and invested into one of the most exciting business segments: our downstream solar projects."

"Our transformation from a traditional manufacturer to a one-stop energy solution provider is truly an exciting business and I am very optimistic about the opportunities this will bring. We have already connected 105MW to the grid so far and are focused on connecting another 108MW during the fourth quarter of 2013. This will be followed by an additional 300MW earmarked to be connected by the end of 2014 with the support of financial partners such as China Development Bank, as we plan to focus more on distributed PV systems. The Chinese government recently increased its solar installation target for 2014 by 20% to 12GW, a clear commitment towards renewable energy that is expected to result in increased demand for both solar farms and distributed PV systems. Our pipeline now includes 700MW in utility scale projects and more than 400MW for distributed systems, putting JinkoSolar in a unique position to benefit greatly as this market grows. While still in its early stages, this growing revenue stream is currently generating revenues from power sales and services related to solar power projects. This quarter we recognized meaningful electricity revenue for the first time, accounting for approximately RMB 40 million in revenue from our downstream business where gross margins and net profit margins exceed 60% and 30%, respectively. With the number and scale of our projects growing rapidly, we expect that this revenue stream will contribute meaningfully to our profit in the future."

"Our state-of-the-art products continue to lead the global PV industry in terms of technology and efficiency. During the quarter, we completed preliminary research on an advanced version of our 'Eagle' series of modules which we call 'Eagle +'. These new modules continue the tradition set by earlier 'Eagle' modules by being certified PID free, but with higher power output and lighter in weight, making them ideal for rooftop installations and extreme weather geographies. JinkoSolar's multicrystalline cells have now achieved conversion efficiency of 18.5% in lab tests. With this technology expected to be utilized in mass production next year, these results have been confirmed by third party institutions including TUV NORD and the National PV Product Quality Inspection Center. Our "smart modules" are currently in the process of undergoing internal reliability tests following the completion of function testing earlier this year. I am very excited about the potential these "smart modules" will provide to our customers and I believe they will revolutionize the way in which solar modules are managed and optimized. With ASPs continuing to stabilize and demand for our solid portfolio of products growing, we are well situated to take full advantage of our strong relationships across the globe and constant investment into R&D to leverage our technological leadership in solar product development."

"Our exposure globally has continued to grow as we leverage our reputation to diversify our geographic presence globally. As European markets slow, we continue to seek out new opportunities in exciting solar markets such as China, Japan, US, South Africa, and India."

"In summary, with another quarter of profitability behind us, I am optimistic about the opportunities ahead of us as we confidently look towards the future. Even during the toughest times, we never lost the hope or courage we needed to push forward as one of the industry leaders. We continue to manage our business prudently, and have thus been able to adjust our vision and hone our ability to strategically execute. I believe that our industry leading technology, cost structure, steady downstream expansion and brand recognition have yielded a formula for our robust, sustainable future growth." 

Third Quarter 2013 Financial Results

Total Revenues

Total revenues in the third quarter of 2013 were RMB1.96 billion (US$320.7 million), representing an increase of 11.2% from RMB1.76 billion in the second quarter of 2013 and an increase of 47.6% from RMB1.3 billion in the third quarter of 2012. The sequential increase in revenues was primarily attributable to the increase in shipments, improving average selling prices ("ASPs") of solar modules and the increase in electricity revenues from solar projects. The year-over-year increase in total revenues was mainly due to an increase in the shipment of solar modules, which was partially offset by the decline in ASPs of solar modules.

JinkoSolar began developing solar projects in 2011. As of September 30, 2013, the Company has completed 105MW worth of solar projects. Before July 1, 2013, the Company did not accrue the government subsidy for electricity revenues from solar projects due to the lack of detailed government guidelines and uncertainty over the timing of subsidy payment. During the third quarter of 2013, the Chinese government announced a series of policies aimed at streamlining and standardizing government subsidy payments for electricity revenues from solar projects in China as well as expanding the amount invested in renewable energy. In addition, the Company received the government subsidy payments for electricity revenues from solar projects for the year 2012 during the third quarter of 2013. As the result of the increased policy clarity and payment certainty, the Company has begun to accrue the government subsidy for electricity revenue from solar projects starting July 1, 2013. During the third quarter of 2013, electricity revenues from solar projects were RMB39.9 million (US$6.5 million), an increase of 717.8% from the second quarter of 2013. For the electricity revenues in the third quarter of 2013, RMB18.8 million was related to the government subsidy for electricity revenues before July 1, 2013 and RMB14.7 million was related to the government subsidy for electricity revenues in the third quarter of 2013. Gross profit for electricity revenues was RMB32.2 million (US$5.3 million). Excluding the government subsidy for electricity revenues before July 1, 2013 which were recognized during the third quarter of 2013, electricity revenues and gross profit for electricity from solar projects were RMB21.1 million (US 3.4million) and RMB13.4 million (US 2.2million), respectively.

The Company has entered into certain sales contracts with retainage terms (the "Retainage Contracts") since the second half of 2012, under which customers were allowed to withhold payment of 5% to 10% of the full contract price as retainage for the specified period which generally ranges from one year to two years (the "Retainage Period"). Given the limited experience the Company has with respect to the collectability of the retainage under Retainage Contracts, the Company does not recognize such retainage until the customers pay it after the Retainage Period expires. The total amounts of retainage under the Retainage Contracts that were not recognized as revenue were RMB31.4 million and RMB11.7 million for the second quarter of 2013 and the third quarter of 2013, respectively. As of September 30, 2013, the cumulative amounts of retainage that were not recognized as revenue was RMB158.5 million.

Gross Profit and Gross Margin

Gross profit in the third quarter of 2013 was RMB437.6million (US$71.5 million), compared with a gross profit of RMB311.6 million in the second quarter of 2013 and a gross profit of RMB77.6 million in the third quarter of 2012.

Gross margin was 22.3% in the third quarter of 2013 compared with 17.7% in the second quarter of 2013 and 5.8% in the third quarter of 2012. The sequential increase in gross margins was primarily attributable to improving solar module ASPs and higher gross margins generated from electricity revenues of solar projects. The year-over-year increase in gross margins was mainly due to improvements in operating efficiency and continued cost reductions for the Company's polysilicon and auxiliary materials, and higher gross margins from the electricity revenues of solar projects, which were partially offset by declines in solar module ASPs.

In-house gross margin relating to the Company's in-house silicon wafer, solar cell, and solar module production was 21% in the third quarter of 2013, compared with 18.3% in the second quarter of 2013 and 12.6% in the third quarter of 2012.

Income/(Loss) from Operations and Operating Margin

Income from operations in the third quarter of 2013 was RMB244.3 million (US$39.9 million), compared with income from operations of RMB155.8 million in the second quarter of 2013 and a loss from operations of RMB111.3 million in the third quarter of 2012. Operating margin in the third quarter of 2013 was 12.4%, compared with 8.8% in the second quarter of 2013 and negative 8.4% in the third quarter of 2012.

Total operating expenses in the third quarter of 2013 were RMB193.3 million (US$31.6 million), an increase of 24.1% from RMB155.8 million in the second quarter of 2013 and an increase of 2.3% from RMB188.9 million in the third quarter of 2012. The sequential increase was primarily due to the decrease in the amount of reversal of provisions for bad debts, which was RMB29.0 million in the third quarter as compared with RMB 54.0 million in the second quarter of 2013, and an increase in shipping and warranty costs resulting from the increase in solar module shipments. The year-over-year increase in operating expenses was mainly due to the increase in shipping and warranty costs. Provisions for bad debts were reversed as a result of settlement of long aged accounts receivable which were previously provided for. Included in the amount of reversal for the third quarter, there was a settlement in the form of convertible bonds issued to the Company of which the fair value was assessed to be RMB23.7 million (US$3.9 million). The convertible bonds have been accounted for as an available for sale investment.

Total operating expenses excluding provision for bad debt was RMB222.3 million, compared to RMB209.8 million in the second quarter of 2013 and RMB 177.2 million in the third quarter of 2012.

Total operating expenses excluding provision for bad debts, as a percentage of total net revenues were 11.3% in the third quarter of 2013, compared to 11.9% in the second quarter of 2013 and 13.3% in the third quarter of 2012.

Interest Expense, Net

Net interest expense in the third quarter of 2013 was RMB56.3 million (US$9.2 million), a decrease of 3.7% from RMB58.5 million in the second quarter of 2013 and an increase of 8.8% from RMB51.8 million in the third quarter of 2012.

Exchange gain/loss

Due to the appreciation of the Euro against the Chinese Yuan during the third quarter of 2013, the Company recorded an exchange gain of RMB25.1 million (US$4.1 million) in the third quarter of 2013, which was primarily due to a foreign currency exchange gain of RMB20.8 million (US$3.4 million) and gain in fair value of forward contracts of RMB4.3 million (US$0.71million). The Company had net exchange loss of RMB5.8 million in the second quarter of 2013 and net exchange gain of RMB44.2 million in the third quarter of 2012.

Change in Fair Value of Convertible Senior Notes and Capped Call Options

The Company recognized a loss from a change in fair value of convertible senior notes and capped call options of RMB88.6 million (US$14.5 million) in the third quarter of 2013 primarily due to the increase in market price of convertible senior notes.

Equity in losses of affiliated companies

The Company recognized equity loss of affiliated companies of RMB2.4 million (US$0.4 million) in the third quarter of 2013, which was primarily due to the elimination of inter-company profit of a solar module shipment to one of JinkoSolar's affiliated companies.

Income Tax Benefit / (Expense)

The Company recognized an income tax expense of RMB18.4 million (US$3.0 million) in the third quarter of 2013, compared with a tax benefit of RMB0.2 million in the second quarter of 2013 and an income tax expense of RMB1.3 million during the third quarter of 2012. The increase of income tax was due to the expectation of income tax for the fiscal year of 2013 as certain subsidiaries of the Company return to profitability for 2013.

Net Income / (Loss) and Earnings / (Loss) per Share

Net income attributable to JinkoSolar Holding Co., Ltd.'s ordinary shareholders in the third quarter of 2013 was RMB103.5 million (US$16.9 million), compared with a net income attributable to JinkoSolar Holding Co., Ltd.'s ordinary shareholders of RMB49.0 million in the second quarter of 2013 and a net loss attributable to JinkoSolar Holding Co., Ltd.'s ordinary shareholders of RMB114.5 million in the third quarter of 2012.

Basic and diluted earnings per share were RMB1.15 (US$0.19) and RMB1.10 (US$0.18) in the third quarter of 2013, respectively. Basic and diluted earnings per ADS were RMB4.60 (US$0.76) and RMB4.40 (US$0.72) in the third quarter of 2013, respectively.

Non-GAAP net income attributable to JinkoSolar Holding Co., Ltd.'s ordinary shareholders in the third quarter of 2013 was RMB196.9 million (US$32.2 million), compared with a non-GAAP net income attributable to JinkoSolar Holding Co., Ltd.'s ordinary shareholders of RMB74.3 million in the second quarter of 2013 and a non-GAAP net loss attributable to JinkoSolar Holding Co., Ltd.'s ordinary shareholders of RMB87.6 million in the third quarter of 2012.

Non-GAAP basic and diluted earnings per share in the third quarter of 2013 were RMB2.18 (US$0.36) and RMB2.10 (US$0.34), respectively. This translates into non-GAAP basic and diluted earnings per ADS of RMB8.72 (US$1.44) and RMB8.40 (UD$1.36), respectively, in the third quarter of 2013.

Financial Position

As of September 30, 2013, the Company had RMB1.34 billion (US$218.7 million) in cash and cash equivalents and restricted cash, compared with RMB694.6 million of cash and cash equivalents and restricted cash as of June 30, 2013.
