BEIJING, Nov. 17, 2016 (GLOBE NEWSWIRE) -- JA Solar Holdings Co., Ltd. (Nasdaq:JASO) ("JA Solar" or the "Company"), one of the world's largest manufacturers of high-performance solar power products, today announced its unaudited financial results for its third quarter ended September 30, 2016. Mr. Baofang Jin, Chairman and CEO of JA Solar, commented, “Third quarter results were in-line with our expectations with external shipments and revenue growing 10% and 9% year-over-year, respectively. We executed our strategy to redirect solar product sales to several stronger international markets, as shipments to the domestic market of China declined significantly after demand was pulled forward into Q2. Furthermore, our downstream strategy remains intact. We have approximately 50 MW of downstream projects under construction and intend to develop another 150 to 200 MW in the coming year.” Mr. Jin continued, “While we anticipate more market headwinds in the near-term, we are confident that our favorable geographic exposure, prudent cost control and flexible business model will enable us to succeed. As market conditions improve, we will be positioned for strong long-term growth.” All shipment and financial figures refer to the quarter ended September 30, 2016, unless otherwise specified. All “year over year” or “y/y” comparisons are against the quarter ended September 30, 2015. All “sequential” comparisons are against the quarter ended June 30, 2016. Total shipments were 1,240.9 MW, exceeding the low end of the previously announced guidance range of 1,200 to 1,300 MW. External shipments of 1,240.9 MW increased 10.1% year over year and 0.9% sequentially. Net revenue was RMB 4.2 billion ($624.3 million), an increase of +9.0% y/y and +1.2% sequentially. Gross profit of RMB 574.5 million ($86.1 million) decreased 15.2% y/y and 8.6% sequentially. Gross margin was 13.8%, which compares to 17.7% in the year-ago quarter, and 15.3% in the second quarter of 2016. Total operating expenses of RMB 453.1 million ($67.9 million) were 10.9% of revenue. This compares to operating expenses of 9.9% of revenue in the year-ago quarter, and 10.7% of revenue in the second quarter of 2016. Operating profit was RMB 121.4 million ($18.2 million), compared to RMB 299.1 million ($44.9 million) in the year-ago quarter, and RMB 188.0 million ($28.2 million) in the second quarter of 2016. Operating margin was 2.9%, compared with 7.8% in the prior year period and 4.6% in the previous quarter. Interest expense was RMB 75.4 million ($11.3 million), compared to RMB 58.2 million ($8.7 million) in the year-ago quarter, and RMB 68.8 million ($10.3 million) in the second quarter of 2016. The change in fair value of warrant derivatives was a gain of RMB 17.0 thousand ($2.6 thousand), compared with RMB 4.4 million ($0.7 million) in the year-ago quarter, and RMB 47.4 million ($7.1 million) in the second quarter of 2016. The warrants were issued on August 16, 2013 in conjunction with the Company’s $96 million registered direct offering, and expired on August 16, 2016. Earnings per diluted ADS were RMB 0.86 or $0.13, compared to earnings per diluted ADS of RMB 4.42 or $0.66 in the year-ago quarter, and earnings per diluted ADS of RMB 2.87 or $0.43 in the second quarter of 2016. As of September 30, 2016, the Company had cash and cash equivalents of RMB 2.0 billion ($298.2 million), and total working capital of RMB 1.5 billion ($228.8 million). Total short-term borrowings were RMB 2.9 billion ($429.0 million). Total long-term borrowings were RMB 3.1 billion ($467.8 million), of which RMB 536.3 million ($80.4 million) were due in one year. For the fourth quarter of 2016, the Company expects total cell and module shipments to be in the range of 1,200 to 1,300 MW, with essentially all being external shipments. Accordingly, full year 2016 shipments are expected to range from 4.9 GW to 5.0 GW, below the Company’s previous guidance of 5.2 GW to 5.5 GW.

An insulation partition was designed in a seeded directional solidification (DS) furnace of industrial-size to produce quasi-single crystalline silicon ingot for solar cells of high efficiency. We used a transient global model to study the effects of the insulation partition block on the temperature and thermal stress fields in the solidified silicon ingot during the solidification process. We validated the transient global model by comparing the calculations with the experimental measurements. Simulation results show that an insulation partition block can significantly reduce the total heating power consumption and influence the temperature and velocity fields in the silicon melt. We also found that the melt-crystal interface (mc interface) shape changes from concave to convex to the melt with a larger crystal growth rate with an insulation partition, while it always remains flat with a smaller crystal growth rate without a partition block. The axial temperature gradient and thermal stress in the grown silicon crystal increased with a partition block. The solar cells from the grown quasi-single crystalline silicon ingot exhibited higher short-circuit current (Isc) and open-circuit voltage (Voc). The average conversion efficiency of solar cells is increased to 17.8% and about 1.2% more than that based on mc-Si ingot from the conventional furnace. © 2012 Elsevier B.V. All rights reserved.

An approach to grain control using seed-assisted growth in directional solidification (DS) is reported in this paper. Proper multi-crystalline silicon seeds at the bottom of the crucible provided numerous fine nucleation points for the controlled grain growth in an optimized hot-zone. Low dislocation density was observed with large numbers of uniform small grains in the silicon ingot, although the grain size increased with crystal growth. Crystals produced using seed-assisted growth showed a higher and more uniform minority carrier lifetime with a much lower dislocation multiplication rate. A higher average solar cell conversion efficiency of about 0.5% in absolute value was obtained in the seed-assisted grown silicon in comparison with that in the seedless silicon under the same cell fabrication process. © 2013 Published by Elsevier B.V.
