("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 December 31, 2012.  The Company will host a conference call to discuss the results at 8:00 am Eastern Time (8:00 pm Shanghai Time) on March 18, 2012.  A slide presentation with details of the results will also be available on the Company's website prior to the call. FOURTH QUARTER 2012 HIGHLIGHTS Total net revenues were RMB836.7 million (US$134.3 million), a decrease of 13.4% from 3Q12, and a decrease of 14.5% from 4Q11. PV module shipments, including module processing services, were 198.9 MW, a decrease of 17.0% from 239.5 MW in 3Q12, and an increase of 5.2% from 189.1 MW in 4Q11. Average selling price ("ASP"), excluding module processing services, decreased to RMB3.75 per watt (US$0.60) from RMB4.22 per watt in 3Q12, and decreased from RMB6.29 per watt in 4Q11. The Company recorded certain non-cash charges totaling RMB377.5 million (US$60.6 million), including RMB53.9 million (US$8.6 million) from inventory write-down, RMB87.6 million (US$14.1 million) from provisions for doubtful debt of accounts receivable and RMB236.0 million (US$37.9 million) from provisions for advance payments on the Company's purchase commitment under long-term supply contracts. Gross loss was RMB261.8 million (US$42.0 million), compared with gross loss of RMB56.1 million in 3Q12 and gross loss of RMB604.6 million in 4Q11. Gross margin decreased to negative 31.3%, compared with negative 5.8% in 3Q12, due to both the lower ASP and the non-cash charges from inventory write-down and provisions for advance payments associated with long-term supply contracts. Gross margin in 4Q11 was negative 61.8%. Gross margin excluding the aforementioned provisions would have been negative 2.6% in 4Q12. Operating loss increased by 149.1% to RMB625.8 million (US$100.4 million) from an operating loss of RMB251.2 million in 3Q12, compared to an operating loss of RMB1, 005.2 million in 4Q11. The increase in operating loss in 4Q12 from 3Q12 was primarily due to the significantly higher gross loss and non-cash charge from provisions for doubtful debt of accounts and advance payments on the Company's purchase commitment under long-term supply contracts.. Operating margin decreased to negative 74.8% from negative 26.0% in 3Q12, compared with negative 102.8% in 4Q11. Net loss attributable to shareholders on a non-GAAP basis[1] was RMB650.6 million (US$104.4 million), compared with net loss of RMB301.9 million in 3Q12 and net loss of RMB862.3 million in 4Q11. Net loss per basic ADS on a non-GAAP basis was RMB7.70 (US$1.24), compared with net loss per basic ADS on a non-GAAP basis of RMB3.57 in 3Q12 and net loss per ADS on a non-GAAP basis of RMB10.22 in 4Q11.  Net loss attributable to shareholders on a GAAP basis was RMB670.4 million (US$107.6 million), compared with net loss attributable to shareholders on a GAAP basis of RMB322.1 million in 3Q12.  The Company recorded a non-cash gain of RMB1.4 million (US$0.2 million) from the change in fair value of the convertible feature of the Company's convertible bonds as compared to a non-cash gain of RMB1.2 million in 3Q12.  Net loss attributable to shareholders on a GAAP basis in 4Q11 was RMB832.9 million, including a non-cash gain of RMB33.2 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 RMB7.93 (US$1.27), compared with net loss per basic ADS on a GAAP basis of RMB3.81 in 3Q12 and net loss per basic ADS on a GAAP basis of RMB9.88 in 4Q11. Annualized Return on Equity ("ROE") on a non-GAAP basis was negative 97.6% in 4Q12, compared with negative 38.5% in 3Q12 and negative 81.5% in 4Q11.  Annualized ROE on a GAAP basis was negative 87.0% in 4Q12, compared to negative 36.0% in 3Q12 and negative 70.6% in 4Q11. FULL YEAR 2012 HIGHLIGHTS Total net revenues were RMB3, 678.4 million (US$590.4 million), representing a decrease of 42.7% from RMB6,416.5 million in 2011. PV module shipments, including module processing services, reached 829.8 MW, representing a decrease of 1.7% from 844.4 MW in 2011. Module processing services accounted for 4.7% of total revenues in 2012. The Company recorded total non-cash charges of RMB649.7 million (US$104.3 million), including RMB326.1 million (US$52.3 million) from inventory write-down as a result of a lower of cost or market assessment and a regular provision for obsolescence, RMB236.0 million (US$37.9 million) from provisions for advance payments associated with long-term supply contracts, RMB87.6 million (US$14.1 million) from provisions for doubtful debt of accounts receivable and RMB 512.0 million (US$ 82.2 million) was recognized in cost of revenues and RMB137.7 million (US$ 22.1 million) in operating expenses. Gross loss in 2012 was RMB325.5 million (US$52.2 million), compared with a gross loss of RMB217.1 million in 2011.  Gross margin was negative 8.8%, compared with negative 3.4% in 2011. Operating loss for 2012 was RMB1, 180.6 million (US$189.5 million), compared with an operating loss of RMB1, 096.4 million in 2011. Operating margin was negative 32.1%, compared with negative 17.1% in 2011. Net loss attributable to shareholders on a non-GAAP basis1 was RMB1, 468.3 million (US$235.7 million), compared with net loss attributable to shareholders of RMB1, 068.5 million in 2011.

Net loss per basic ADS on a GAAP basis was RMB18.51 (US$2.97), compared with net loss per basic ADS of RMB11.06 in 2011. ROE on a non-GAAP basis was negative 47.8% in 2012, compared with negative 24.8% in 2011. ROE on a GAAP basis was negative 44.3% in 2012, compared with negative 19.6% in 2011. [1] All non-GAAP numbers used in this press release exclude the accounting impact from the adoption of ASC 815-40, which relates to the accounting treatment for the convertible bonds. Please refer to the attached financial statements for the reconciliation between the GAAP and non-GAAP financial results.Mr. Ki-Joon HONG, Chairman and CEO of Hanwha SolarOne, commented, "The year 2012 will be remembered as one of tremendous challenge and change for the solar industry, with significant industry overcapacity and regulatory changes in key markets leading to a slowdown in demand, accompanied by rapidly decelerating prices. Almost all companies, including ours, found it virtually impossible to record profitability in such an operating environment. In spite of the degrading operating environment we faced, our company made significant progress in a number of areas; including  bringing greater balance between our OEM model  and branded one, diversifying our sales base into new emerging growth markets, improving our non-poly processing cost structure to be competitive with industry leaders, instituted operational efficiencies at our manufacturing sites including enhanced automation, better quality, improved product features and new product introductions,  and secured financing from a variety of sources both within and outside mainland China."Chairman HONG continued " Our volumes in the fourth quarter did not reflect the improving demand environment of late as we chose to sacrifice sales at loss making prices and our profitability was impacted by a number of non-cash charges. However, we are well on track to achieving 50% improvement in first quarter 2013 shipment volume and over 50% for the full year. We have good visibility in South Africa and Japan for the first half of this year in particular, and continue to see growing opportunities in China, the US, the Middle East and other emerging markets of importance. Our funding for 2013 is proceeding as planned. Industry prices seem to have stabilized, and we see good opportunities to exploit synergies with our sister company Hanwha Q.CELLS, including a sizeable module tolling business. Profitability will remain challenging for most, if not all of 2013, but we feel confident that we are making good progress on the return to a path of profitability, aided by forecasted improvements in the operating environment and securing the company to challenge for industry leadership longer term."  FOURTH QUARTER 2012 RESULTS Total net revenues were RMB836.7 million (US$134.3 million), a decrease of 13.4% from RMB966.1 million in 3Q12, and a decrease of 14.5% from RMB978.3 million in 4Q11. The decrease in total net revenues in 4Q12 compared with 3Q12 was primarily due to lower shipments and reduced ASP. PV module shipments, including module processing services, were 198.9 MW, a decrease from 239.5 MW in 3Q12, and an increase from 189.1 MW in 4Q11. (Photo:  http://photos.prnewswire.com/prnh/20130318/CN78564-INFO-a )(Photo:  http://photos.prnewswire.com/prnh/20130318/CN78564-INFO-b ) Module shipments to Japan grew from 3% in 3Q12 to 20% in 4Q12 at a good pricing level. The China market remained solid for the Company and increased from 11% in 3Q12 to 15% of module shipments in 4Q12.  The dispersion of shipments this quarter saw relatively new and potentially attractive markets come to the forefront with large contributions from Greece (16%), Thailand (8%) and India (6%). Historically strong markets accounted for a smaller proportion of shipments as a result of the aforementioned; shipments from Germany declined to 8% from 39% in 3Q12 as the full effect of the July 1 incentives reductions were felt and the US decreased to 6% this quarter. In 2012, shipments to Europe and Africa (EA) contributed 62% to total module shipments with Asian Pacific (AP) accounting for 24% and North America (NA) 8%. Average selling price ("ASP"), excluding module processing services, decreased to RMB3.75 per watt (US$0.60) from RMB4.22 per watt in 3Q12 and from RMB6.29 per watt in 4Q11.  Gross loss of 4Q12 was RMB261.8 million (US$42.0 million), compared with a gross loss of RMB56.1 million in 3Q12 and a gross loss of RMB604.6 million in 4Q11.  Gross margin decreased to negative 31.3%, compared with negative 5.8% in 3Q12, due to both the lower ASP and the non-cash charges from inventory write-down and provisions for advance payments on the Company's purchase commitment under long-term supply contracts. Gross margin in 4Q11 was negative 61.8%. The blended cost of goods sold ("COGS") per watt, excluding module processing services, was US$0.81 (including $0.17 non-cash charges from inventory write-down and provisions for advance payments associated with long-term supply contract), representing a 14.1% increase from US$0.71 in 3Q12. 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. Excluding non-cash charges, the Company would have achieved a 9.9% reduction in blended COGS to $0.64. Operating loss of 4Q12 was RMB625.8 million (US$100.4 million), compared with an operating loss of RMB251.2 million in 3Q12 and an operating loss of RMB1, 005.2 million in 4Q11. Operating margin decreased to negative 74.8% from negative 26.0% in 3Q12, compared to negative 102.8% in 4Q11. Operating expenses as a percentage of total net revenues were 43.5% in 4Q12, compared with 20.2% in 3Q12 and 40.9% in 4Q11.  The higher operating expenses in 4Q12 compared with 3Q12 was primarily due to non-cash charges from provisions for doubtful debt of accounts receivable and decrease in revenue. Interest expense was RMB73.9 million (US$11.9 million), compared with RMB79.9 million in 3Q12 and RMB41.7 million in 4Q11.  The Company recorded a net gain of RMB19.0 million (US$3.0 million), which combined a foreign exchange gain with a loss from the change in fair value of derivatives.  The Company recorded a net gain of RMB18.1 million in 3Q12 and a net loss of RMB0.1 million in 4Q11 for the foreign exchange gain/loss and the gain/loss from change in fair value of derivatives. Gain from the change in fair value of the conversion feature of the Company's convertible bonds was RMB1.4 million (US$0.2 million), compared with RMB1.2 million in 3Q12 and RMB33.2 million in 4Q11.  The fluctuations resulting from the adoption 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 4Q12 increased to RMB9.1 million (US$1.5 million), compared with RMB15.8 million in 3Q12 and RMB179.9 million in 4Q11. Net loss attributable to shareholders on a non-GAAP basis1 was RMB650.6 million (US$104.4 million), compared with a net loss attributable to shareholders of RMB301.9 million in 3Q12 and a net loss attributable to shareholders of RMB862.3 million in 4Q11. Net loss per basic ADS on a non-GAAP basis was RMB7.70 (US$1.24), compared with net loss per basic ADS on a non-GAAP basis of RMB3.57 in 3Q12 and net loss per basic ADS on a non-GAAP basis of RMB10.22 in 4Q11.  Net loss attributable to shareholders on a GAAP basis was RMB670.4 million (US$107.6 million), compared with net loss attributable to shareholders of RMB322.1 million in 3Q12 and net loss attributable to shareholders of RMB832.9 million in 4Q11. Net loss per basic ADS on a GAAP basis was RMB7.93 (US$1.27), compared with net loss per basic ADS of RMB3.81 in 3Q12 and net loss per basic ADS of RMB9.88 in 4Q11.  Annualized ROE on a non-GAAP basis was negative 97.6% in 4Q12, compared with negative 38.5% in 3Q12 and negative 81.5% in 4Q11.  Annualized ROE on a GAAP basis was negative 87.0% in 4Q12, compared with negative 36.0% in 3Q12 and negative 70.6% in 4Q11.
