To the Company's knowledge, none of the holders of the 2011 MTNs or the 2010 MTNs or other creditors of the Company has taken any immediate action against Tianwei Yingli or the Company following Tianwei Yingli's failure to repay the 2011 MTNs and the 2010 MTNs today.

The Company is exploring various alternative financing plans for repayment of both MTNs such as: 1) introduction of strategic investors to invest into the Company and the Company's subsidiaries, 2) introduction of new creditors to grant new borrowings to the Company or the Company's subsidiaries, and 3) sales of certain long-lived assets including land use rights to obtain additional funds.
