2   This column is shown to illustrate the operating performance of the Company excluding total non-cash charges of RMB54.5 million (US$9.0 million), including RMB10.3 million (US$1.7 million) from inventory write-down as a result of lower cost or market assessment and a regular provision for obsolescence, RMB15.6 million (US$2.6 million) from provisions for advanced payments associated with long-term supply contracts and RMB28.6 million (US$4.7 million) from provisions for doubtful debt of accounts receivable.

Mr. Ki-Joon HONG, Chairman and CEO of Hanwha SolarOne commented, "The final quarter of 2013 was marked by significantly improved financial results, and when excluding year-end non-cash charges and other non-GAAP accounting treatments unrelated to the operations of our business we would have recorded profitability. This financial progress was achieved through increased revenues and shipments, reductions in our manufacturing cost structure, and continued diligence in controlling operating expenses. We maintained a strong presence in Japan and increased our penetration of the fast-growing domestic market in China." Chairman HONG noted, "We are optimistic that 2014 will prove to be a much stronger year for the Company with further shipment growth and additional reductions in our cost structure including notably better operating metrics at our internal ingot and wafer facility. We intend to establish a downstream presence in China and grow our China business by leveraging several recently established strategic partnerships. We plan to expand capacity to meet growing global demand, as well as automate existing manufacturing to reduce cost and improve product consistency and quality."

FOURTH QUARTER 2013 RESULTS

  • Total net revenues were RMB1,294.9 million (US$213.9 million), an increase of 14.1% from RMB1,135.1 million in 3Q13, and an increase of 54.8% from RMB836.7 million in 4Q12. The increase in total net revenues in 4Q13 compared with 3Q13 was primarily due to greater shipments.
  • PV module shipments, including module processing services, were 352.2 MW, a 10.8% increase from 317.3 MW in 3Q13, and a 77.1% increase from 198.9 MW in 4Q12.
  •  The Company recorded total non-cash charges of RMB54.5 million (US$9.0 million), including RMB10.3 million (US$1.7 million) from an inventory write-down as a result of lower cost or market assessment and a regular provision for obsolescence, RMB15.6 million (US$2.6 million) from provisions for advance payments associated with long-term supply contracts and RMB28.6 million (US$4.7 million) from provisions for doubtful debt of accounts receivable.

Shipments to China increased to account for 16% of total shipments, after accounting for 11% in 3Q13. Deliveries to the US remained stable for the Company at 11%. Germany, Korea and Canada once again contributed to our geographic mix and have become core markets for us. The Company shipped PV modules to 28 countries during 4Q13, as we continued to broaden our geographic spread. Shipments to Europe and Africa (EA) contributed 14% to total module shipments, Asia Pacific (AP) accounted for 70% and North America (NA) 16%.
  • The average selling price ("ASP") of modules, excluding module processing services, decreased slightly to RMB4.09 per watt (US$0.68) from RMB4.16 per watt in 3Q13 and increased from RMB3.75 per watt in 4Q12. 
  • Gross profit in 4Q13 was RMB183.0 million (US$30.2 million), compared with a gross profit of RMB57.8 million in 3Q13 and a gross loss of RMB261.8 million in 4Q12. The increase in gross profit in 4Q13 was primarily due to higher revenues and lower costs. Gross profit would have been RMB208.9 million (US$34.5 million) in 4Q13 excluding the non-cash charge of RMB10.3 million ($1.7 million) from inventory write-down and obsolescence provision and RMB15.6 million (US$2.6 million) from provision from advanced payments.
  • Gross margin was positive 14.1%, compared with positive 5.1% in 3Q13. Gross margin in 4Q12 was negative 31.3%. Gross margin would have been 16.1% in 4Q13 excluding the aforementioned non-cash charges.
  • The blended cost of goods sold ("COGS") per watt, excluding module processing services, was US$0.59, representing a 7.8% decrease from US$0.64 in 3Q13. 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.
  • Operating loss of 4Q13 was RMB23.7 million (US$3.9 million), compared with an operating loss of RMB132.7 million in 3Q13 and an operating loss of RMB625.8 million in 4Q12. Operating margin improved to negative 1.8% from negative 11.7% in 3Q13 and negative 74.8% in 4Q12. Excluding the RMB28.6 million (US$4.7 million) non-cash charges in general and administrative expenses for provisions on doubtful debt of accounts receivable and RMB25.9 (US$4.3 million) in cost of revenues for inventory write-down and provision for advanced payments, the Company would have recorded an operating profit of RMB30.8 million (US$5.1 million). Operating margin excluding non-cash charges was 2.4%.

The fluctuations 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 basis1 was RMB25.4 million (US$4.2 million), compared with a net loss attributable to shareholders of RMB401.6 million in 3Q13  and a net loss attributable to shareholders of RMB650.6 million in 4Q12.
