("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, 2011.  The Company will host a conference call to discuss the results at 8:00 am Eastern Time (9:00 pm Shanghai Time) on November 22, 2011.  A slide presentation with details of the results will also be available on the Company's website prior to the call.THIRD QUARTER 2011 HIGHLIGHTS Total net revenues were RMB 1,437.3 million (US$225.4 million), a decrease of 20.1% from 2Q11 and a decrease of 34.4% from 3Q10.PV module shipments, including module processing services, were 200.9 MW, a decrease of 2.5% from 205.9 MW in 2Q11 and a decrease of 10.3% from 3Q10.Average selling price ("ASP"), excluding module processing services, decreased to RMB7.86 per watt (US$1.23) from RMB10.09 per watt in 2Q11. The Company recorded a non-cash inventory write-down of RMB194.9 million (US$30.6 million) as a result of a lower of cost or market (LCM) assessment and a regular provision for obsolescence.Gross loss was RMB155.2 million (US$24.3 million), compared with gross profit of RMB162.9 million in 2Q11 and RMB526.7 million in 3Q10.  Gross loss in 3Q11 included the effect of the non-cash inventory write-down of RMB 194.9 million (US$30.6 million).  Gross margin was negative 10.8%, compared with positive 9.1% in 2Q11, primarily due to a combination of the steep decline in ASP and the significant negative effect of the inventory write-down, which caused a 13.6% decline in gross margin in 3Q11. Gross margin was 24.0% in 3Q10.Operating loss was RMB327.8 million (US$51.4 million), compared with an operating loss of RMB25.7 million in 2Q11 and an operating profit of RMB398.7 million in 3Q10. The sequential decrease in operating profit was primarily due to the gross loss and continued investment in sales and marketing.Operating margin was negative 22.8% in 3Q11, compared with negative 1.4% in 2Q11 and positive 18.2% in 3Q10.Net loss attributable to shareholders on a non-GAAP basis(1) was RMB295.7 million (US$46.4 million), compared with net loss attributable to shareholders on a non-GAAP basis of RMB64.9 million in 2Q11 and net income attributable to shareholders on a non-GAAP basis of RMB273.7 million in 3Q10.Net loss per basic ADS on a non-GAAP basis(1) was RMB3.51 (US$0.55), compared with net loss per basic ADS on a non-GAAP basis of RMB0.77 in 2Q11 and net income per basic ADS on a non-GAAP basis of RMB4.62 in 3Q10.Net loss attributable to shareholders on a GAAP basis was RMB177.6 million (US$27.9 million), compared with net loss attributable to shareholders on a GAAP basis of RMB69.0 million and RMB25.2 million in 2Q11 and 3Q10, respectively.Net loss per basic ADS on a GAAP basis was RMB2.11 (US$0.33), compared with net loss per basic ADS on a GAAP basis of RMB0.82 in 2Q11 and RMB0.43 in 3Q10. Annualized Return on Equity ("ROE") on a non-GAAP basis(1) was negative 24.6% in 3Q11, compared with negative 5.2% in 2Q11 and positive 35.3% in 3Q10.  Annualized ROE on a GAAP basis was negative 13.6% in 3Q11, compared with negative 5.2% in 2Q11 and negative 2.9% in 3Q10.Mr. Ki-Joon HONG, Chairman and CEO of Hanwha SolarOne, commented, "Overall industry conditions remained quite challenging throughout the third quarter and this is reflected in our most recent results. We did not experience the pick- up in German demand to the extent that we had anticipated and this impacted our ability to expand shipment volumes. Overcapacity, which continues to exist, coupled with soft demand, led to further pricing pressures. We did achieve meaningful reductions in our in-house production costs while we continued to broaden our market globally and make the investments in technology, systems and management that are necessary for our future success. We believe we have also obtained the necessary funding primarily through bank borrowings to support us through this downturn. We believe industry dynamics will remain challenging into early next year, but we will not waver from our long-term commitment to becoming a leading global player.THIRD QUARTER 2011 RESULTS Total net revenues were RMB1,437.3 million (US$225.4 million), a decrease of 20.1% from RMB1,797.8 million in 2Q11 and a decrease of 34.4% from RMB 2,190.5 million in 3Q10. The decrease compared with 2Q11 was primarily due to lower shipments and lower ASP.Revenue contribution from PV module processing services as a percentage of total net revenues was 7.2%, compared with 6.7% in 2Q11 and 6.9% in 3Q10.PV module shipments, including module processing services, were 200.9 MW, representing a decrease of 2.5% from 205.9 MW in 2Q11 and a decrease of 10.3% from 223.9 MW in 3Q10. The decrease was due primarily to softer than anticipated demand in Europe, and the negative impact of tight credit on solar project development globally.Germany was the Company's largest market in 3Q11 and accounted for 45% of net revenues. This was a sizeable increase from 21% in 2Q11, though shipments to Germany fell below the Company's expectations due to a smaller than expected growth in demand prior to the Feed-In-Tariff ("FIT") reductions, which will be effective in January 2012. The US market was the Company's second largest market. accounting for 13% of net revenues in 3Q11, followed by Belgium and the Netherlands at 9% each. China improved from 4% in 2Q11 to 7% in 3Q11 as a result of higher demand triggered by new government incentives. Other notable new markets were India and Korea, with 5% and 2% of net revenues in 3Q11, respectively. Australia remained a consistently active market, accounting for 6% of net revenues in 3Q11.(Photo:  http://photos.prnewswire.com/prnh/20111122/LA11228-a)(Photo:  http://photos.prnewswire.com/prnh/20111122/LA11228-b)ASP, excluding module processing services, decreased to RMB7.86 per watt (US$1.23) from RMB10.09 per watt in 2Q11, as a result of industry overcapacity and soft demand, and FIT reductions in Germany and Italy.The Company reported a gross loss of RMB155.2 million (US$24.3 million) compared with gross profit of RMB162.9 million in 2Q11 and RMB526.7 million in 3Q10.  The Company recorded a non-cash inventory write down of RMB 194.9 million (US$30.6 million) as a result of a lower of cost or market (LCM) assessment of RMB 161.3 million and a regular provision for obsolescence of RMB 33.6 million. Gross margin was negative 10.8% compared with positive 9.1% in 2Q11, primarily due to the negative effect of the inventory write-down and because the decline in ASP outpaced the reductions in the Company's blended COGS. Gross margin in 3Q10 was 24.0%. The non-cash inventory write-down caused a 13.6% decline in the Company's gross margin (Photo:  http://photos.prnewswire.com/prnh/20111122/LA11228-c)(Photo:  http://photos.prnewswire.com/prnh/20111122/LA11228-d)The blended COGS per watt, excluding module processing services, was US$1.35, representing a 5.6% decrease from US$1.43 in 2Q11. The blended COGS takes into account the production cost (including both silicon and non-silicon costs) using internally sourced wafers, purchase costs and additional processing costs of externally sourced wafers and cells, as well as freight costs. The blended COGS also included US$0.15 per watt from the inventory write-down.The production cost (including both silicon and non-silicon costs) using internal wafers was US$1.13 per watt, representing a 14.4% decrease from US$1.32 per watt in 2Q11.  The decrease was primarily due to a decrease in the price of polysilicon and progress on a number of cost-reduction initiatives. The average cost of polysilicon used in production decreased to US$56.5/kg in 3Q11 from US$74.0/kg in 2Q11. The Company expects the price of polysilicon to decline further in 4Q11.In order to facilitate the comparison of Hanwha SolarOne with its peers, as of the third quarter 2011, the Company has made several reclassifications, which have been accounted for retroactively.  The Company has: Reclassified shipping and handling costs, which were previously recorded as COGS, as sales and marketing expenses; andReclassified the sale of scrap materials directly associated with the processing of production materials, which were previously reported as other income, as revenue. In 3Q11, the reclassification included shipping and handling costs of RMB 16.3 million (US$2.6 million) and sales of scrap materials of RMB 3.6 million (US$0.6 million). All comparative numbers in previous periods were retrospectively adjusted accordingly.Operating expenses as a percentage of total net revenues were 12.0% in 3Q11, compared with 10.5% in 2Q11 and 5.8% in 3Q10. The higher operating expenses in 3Q11 compared with 2Q11 and 3Q10 were primarily due to increased spending on marketing and sales. Interest expense was RMB47.2 million (US$7.4 million) in 3Q11, compared with RMB40.3 million in 2Q11 and RMB39.9 million in 3Q10. The Company recorded an operating loss of RMB327.8 million (US$51.4 million), compared with an operating loss of RMB25.7 million in 2Q11 and an operating profit of RMB398.7 million in 3Q10.The net gain of a foreign exchange loss and a gain on the change in fair value of derivatives was RMB0.4 million (US$0.1 million), compared with a net loss from a foreign exchange gain and a loss on the change in fair value of derivatives of RMB38.2 million in 2Q11.Gain from the change in fair value of the conversion feature of the Company's convertible bonds was RMB131.4 million (US$20.6 million), compared with a gain of RMB51.9 million in 2Q11 and a loss of RMB279.2 million in 3Q10. The fluctuations resulting from applying ASC 815-40 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.Net loss attributable to shareholders on a non-GAAP basis(1) was RMB295.7 million (US$46.4 million), compared with a net loss attributable to shareholders on a non-GAAP basis of RMB64.9 million in 2Q11 and net income attributable to shareholders on a non-GAAP basis of RMB273.7 million in 3Q10. Net loss per basic ADS on a non-GAAP basis(1) was RMB3.51 (US$0.55). The Company recorded a net loss per basic ADS on a non-GAAP basis of RMB0.77 in 2Q11 and net income per basic ADS on a non-GAAP basis of RMB4.62 in 3Q10.  Net loss attributable to shareholders on a GAAP basis was RMB177.6 million (US$27.9 million), compared with net loss attributable to shareholders on a GAAP basis of RMB69.0 million in 2Q11 and RMB 25.2 million in 3Q10.Net loss per basic ADS on a GAAP basis was RMB2.11 (US$0.33), compared with net loss per basic ADS on a GAAP basis of RMB0.82 in 2Q11 and RMB0.43 for 3Q10.Annualized ROE on a non-GAAP basis(1) was negative 24.6% in 3Q11, compared with negative 5.2% in 2Q11 and positive 35.3 % in 3Q10.Annualized ROE on a GAAP basis was negative 13.6% in 3Q11, compared with negative 5.2% in 2Q11 and negative 2.9% in 3Q10.FINANCIAL POSITION As of September 30, 2011, the Company had cash and cash equivalents of RMB1,835.2 million (US$287.7 million) and  net working capital of RMB1,778.2 million (US$278.8 million), compared with cash and cash equivalents of RMB1,485.7 million and net working capital of RMB1,850.0 million as of June 30, 2011.  Total short-term bank borrowings and the current portion of long-term bank borrowings was RMB1,683.7 million (US$264.0 million), compared with RMB1,093.6 million as of June 30, 2011.
