"The fast growth of our solar module business, driven by our proprietary Virtus technology, low production costs and global sales teams, contributed to a positive gross margin of 3.3% in the fourth quarter of 2012," said Mr. Xianshou Li, ReneSola's chief executive officer. "Last year, we leveraged our core competitive strength in wafer manufacturing to greatly expand our solar module business and made inroads in several key markets, including Australia, the United States, India, China and across Europe. In addition, we continued to make progress with downstream products like our Micro Replus microinverter and plan to offer residential PV solutions soon. Although we delivered record shipments in the fourth quarter, the selling prices for solar modules and wafers continued to decline as a result of the global supply-demand imbalance. While we believe prices are beginning to stabilize, we will continue to focus on lowering our costs, an area in which we have excelled, to improve our margins and better position us once conditions improve. Furthermore, we will continue to invest in new technology and expand our solar module business to attract new customers and grow our business in 2013."

The sequential increase in gross profit was due to increased sales of the Company's solar modules, which present higher margins than the Company's wafer business, as well as the inventory write-down of US$31.6 million recorded in Q3 2012 to reflect the decline in the price of solar wafers and polysilicon.

The sequential decrease in operating expenses was primarily due to (1) the impairment loss on long-lived assets of US$6.1 million recorded in Q3 2012 for the discontinuation of 200 MW of monocrystalline wafer furnace production capacity and (2) the goodwill impairment charge of US$5.8 million recorded in Q3 2012 for the Company's solar cell and module business acquired in 2009, offset by (3) an intangible asset impairment loss of $3.8 million to reflect a decrease in the value of the business license for the Company's Sichuan polysilicon plant and (4) a normalizing of research and development ("R&D") expenses, after the Company had decreased its R&D expenses in Q3 2012 to save costs. Operating expenses represented 11.1% of total revenues in Q4 2012, compared to 20.0% in Q3 2012.

Foreign Exchange Gain

The Company had a foreign exchange gain of US$3.1 million in Q4 2012, primarily due to the appreciation of the renminbi ("RMB") against the US dollar. The Company also recognized a US$0.9 million gain on derivatives, compared to a loss of US$0.3 million in Q3 2012, as the price of the Company's RMB hedging and purchase contracts were higher than the current exchange rates.

Business Highlights

Research and Development

ReneSola continued to invest in R&D in Q4 2012 to improve the technology behind its products and manufacturing. With regard to solar wafers, the Company's next generation Virtus A+++ wafers with average efficiencies of 17.6% to 17.8% are now in trial production. With regard to solar modules, the Company's 60-cell 260 W Virtus II modules with efficiencies of 16% are now also in trial production, and the Company's 60-cell 260 W Virtus I modules are now in full production. ReneSola is currently developing a frame-integrated microinverter, the second-generation Micro Replus, which is expected to reduce costs to ReneSola customers by 20% compared to the first generation model. The Company also aims to provide its DC optimizer product in the second half of 2013, and continues to research small-scale storage systems with a plan to market such products by mid 2013. In addition, ReneSola is developing a PV home kit solution with a plan to market it by mid 2013.

Solar Module Business

ReneSola delivered 320.5 MW of solar modules, of which nearly all were Virtus modules, in Q4 2012, compared to 145.3 MW of solar modules, of which 101.7 MW were Virtus modules, in Q3 2012. For Q4 2012, the Company's solar module ASP was US$0.63/W and total solar module selling cost was approximately US$0.60/W, compared to approximately US$0.65/W in Q3 2012. Gross margin for the Company's solar module business was approximately 4.7% in Q4 2012, compared to approximately 1.0% in Q3 2012. The Company expects to continue to reduce its solar module manufacturing costs through improvements in its manufacturing methods and reductions in material costs. In Q1 2013, the Company expects its total solar module production cost to decrease to approximately US$0.55/W and its shipments to decrease to a range of 280 MW to 300 MW due to seasonality. For the full year 2013, the Company expects its total solar module shipments to increase 100% year over year to a range of 1.4 GW to 1.6 GW. The Company will not expand solar module capacity, but may instead outsource some production to third parties under ReneSola's supervision and brand, and in compliance with localization rules in some jurisdictions. 

In order to address the challenges presented by potential European countervailing duties, the Company has signed over 400 MW of overseas tolling contracts and may expand this further after the final ruling.

Solar Wafer Business

For Q4 2012, ReneSola's solar wafer ASP was US$0.24/W and blended non-silicon solar wafer processing cost was US$0.12/W, a decrease from US$0.15/W in Q3 2012 as a result of the Company's continued cost-reduction efforts. In Q4 2012, the Company produced approximately 514 MW of solar wafers, of which 484 MW were Virtus A++ wafers. The Company's next generation Virtus A+++ wafers with average efficiencies of 17.6% to 17.8% are now in trial production. Gross margin for the Company's solar wafer business was approximately 1.9% in Q4 2012, compared to approximately negative 7.5% in Q3 2012. The Company expects non-silicon solar wafer processing cost in its Virtus A++ manufacturing facilities to reach US$0.11/W by the end of Q1 2013, with overall blended non-silicon solar wafer processing cost expected to remain at this level throughout 2013. The Company's solar wafer capacity is expected to remain at 2.0 GW throughout 2013.

Polysilicon Production

In Q4 2012, ReneSola produced approximately 327.2 metric tons ("MT") of polysilicon, a decrease from approximately 1,175.7 MT in Q3 2012 as a result of the temporary halt of polysilicon production at the end of October 2012 to upgrade the Company's facilities and equipment, as well as integrate Phase II with Phase I. Combined production for the newly integrated polysilicon plant is now in trial production. The Company's polysilicon production capacity is currently 10,000 MT.

As a result of the temporary production halt, upgrade and integration of the Company's polysilicon facilities, the Company now expects its polysilicon production facilities to have a polysilicon production cost of approximately US$18/kg for the combined phases by the end of Q2 2013.

Company Headcount

ReneSola currently has approximately 8,200 employees, compared to 7,595 employees as of the end of 2011.
